What are people saying about Sydney Opera House

It was the most interesting day
The information about the tiles for the opera house was off white so people could look at it and the tiles are gritty so the don’t need cleaning or get pollutants on them, how the different areas have different coloured carpets

It was great to go in the different areas all over the opera house and learn so much about the history. The hour tour flies by. And we loved the lunch and drink options that were included.

Thoroughly Enjoyed the Opera House Tour
It was an excellent tour and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very interesting an impressive indeed. The only misunderstanding I had was that the lunch we purchased as part of the package deal wasn't at the restaurant inside the Opera House itself, but we had an option between 2 other restaurants outside the Opera House. If I had known that beforehand, I wouldn't have purchased the tour tickets with the lunches included.

Getting to know Sydney
We had an awesome time with Andrew. He took us all around Sydney. He was very well informed and had stories about everything. The day went by too quickly. We would recommend this tour, especially if your guide is Andrew!
