“Stunning”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Very busy, but it is hard to beleive that when this was first built people thought it was an eyesore. What a spectacular building. Everything is expensive here

“Great time”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I highly recommend the 1 hour tour of the opera house. It was very informative. You get MANY nice shots from inside you wouldn't have access to otherwise. I learned a lot about Utzon, the architect. Did not know his sketch was originally in the reject pile!

“We took the one hour tour. Well worth it!”

I highly recommend the 1 hour tour of the opera house. I can't remember, but think it's about $25. It was very informative. You get MANY nice shots from inside you wouldn't have access to otherwise.
