As beautiful as the iconic Opera House is on the outside, it is vastly more amazing when toured from the inside. Anticipating a trip to Sydney, we made arrangements via internet several months ahead of time to take the backstage tour.By good fortune, we were...More

The bridge is a large icon and makes Sydney look great. Must visit this great place. There is not enough words to explain how great this place is. There is lots to do around the bridge too

Had the tour on a rainy day. Was very interesting. $40 is a tad too expensive but I enjoyed it. All bags over A4 size have to be left in storage and you cannot take photos inside the theatres, just the shared areas

We pre-booked this tour with Viator. The Opera House guide personnel really have it together. Our guide, David, shared loads of info about the Opera House. These tours are conducted in many languages.

I recently attended a concert at the Opera House, and the whole process of parking, eating, entering the Opera House, seat location, accoustics, and exiting was a pleasnt surprise. All the logistics were easy to understand, and the support personnel were very good. It made...More

Its a great walk from the Circular Quay to the Opera House. The best is the provision of the walkway around the whole building, a great vantage point to savour up the beautiful scenery; in the day time, it is the hustle and bustle, the...More

The Sydney Opera House is a world-renowned icon and is certainly very picturesque and makes a great backdrop for photos with either the Harbour Bridge or the harbour in the background. Over the years there have been significant changes in and around the Opera House...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

We were sitting row W middle. We had very good hearing and a comprehensive view of the stage. My suggestion is any row from N up will be very good for opera
