    Fantastic tour of one of the wonders of the world. Take note when buying a ticket of what tours are offered on what days.

    Here I would like to thank the staff at the opera house for handing me back the mobile phone I accidentally lost at a bench outside Sydney opera house. Also I’m grateful for whoever handed it in to the opera house.

    An insightful tour of Sydney's superb Opera House. Great value, the perfect length - not too long, not too short - and incredibly interesting. The tour guide was fun and certainly knew his stuff! The tour allows you to see a whole new side of the Opera House and is ideal for those, who like me, haven't been inside before or seen a performance there. I'd certainly recommend it!

    We were greeted by Steve then the photos which you see at the end of the tour. It's informative and great to see various sized venues used by different companies. There are changes going on upgrading etc, but it's still interesting and you get some great views. The pics taken earlier are 50 not cheap but we opted for the package without the postcards at 40. Nice moment to keep and show family back home. I'd recommend this tour and it's good value.

    Magnificent structure, but go there EARLY in the day. The vouchers you received from Viator has to be traded in for the real tickets, and there is a long wait line. We were there at 9 am for the trade-in, and the earliest tickets we got was at 1 pm. So we spent some time walking the Royal Botanic garden and had an early lunch to kill 4 hours of wait time.

    Excellent. Our guide Marcus was well-spoken and knowledgeable and the history of the design and building of the Opera House was fascinating. Would thoroughly recommend this 1 hour tour.
