The tour of the Opera house totally exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was excellent and the actual Opera house is an architectural masterpiece which really can only be fully appreciated from the inside and with a knowledgeable guide.

But too bad that the main stage was closed for renovation. Still, glad we went. Wish they would not allow babbling babies on the tour.

Wow ... I have a new appreciation for the opera house. We had a similar dispute in my hometown over a building that people feared wouldn't "fit in." What a different 50 years makes! The Opera House is nearly synonymous with Sydney now. Our small...More

It was amazing to tour inside this well known site that is so identified with the city. There was so much information provided in the official tour that made the tour well worth the money.Highly recommended.

We took the tour followed in the evening by the concert. It was great. Also before concerts there is an explanatory talk in the opera house. Go to it and learn. Even though in our 50s we may have lowered the average age, the lecturer...More

First stop in Sydney, be prepared for many tourists the later in the day you go! Picture-worthy shots of course.

It is so iconic, a must see, a sight you can't miss anyway when in Sydney. Be sure to take The Opera House tour with option to buy the AUD 50 picture book with our photo digitally captured in almost every page of it. It...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
