It is amazing to be in the Opera House. Very unique location and icon for Sydney. The tour was not that good. Large group of 35 people ao it takes a lot of time to around. A lot of time waiting to have the group into a room, wait dor a small talk of the guide and then all out of the room. Also not much (inside) information given. Tour was appointing. Opera House very fascinating

Well organized, had headsets so you could always hear the guide, who gave interesting info and history about the opera house. We were able to see both main concert halls, and even learned little known facts like that Pavorotti thinks it is bad luck to walk on purple carpet, and therefore had to enter the main concert hall a different way. Such amazing architecture - completely worth the time and money to see it! Highly recommend!

Incredible, saw everything, a must do if you come to Sydney. The views of the harbour from the Opera House balcony are spectacular. You see every performance room inside. The sound in the Opera House is second to none, you can see why this is an elite venue
