Our guide was very good. She know a lot about Opera House. She took extra care with my husband who uses a cane.
Wonderful Experience

Great tour guide and very interesting tour of the fantastic Sydney Opera House. Food was good at the Opera Bar and it was a gorgeous day. Loved it!
Wheatguy, Apr 2024
Our guide really thought himself as a funny guy. We didn’t agree. We wanted the basics and that’s what we got. The lunch tickets moved us off site to a crowded beach bar. Again, the basic minimum was promised and delivered. Next!

Saw the theatres inside with ample details and information. Magic place! Video and views superb. A must do tour for Australians and International tourists

Ship did not dock in time for excursion due to bad weather. Did not know how to cancel at that late date. Am sure the tour would have been good.
Great tour and worth it!

Great listening devices and lot of walking. Beautiful architecture with lots of interesting information - Great job in tour operator!
A worthwhile experience in a World Heritage site
Arlene_M, Apr 2024
Fascinating to see the architecture up close and to learn about the building process. Guide was very informative. We "lucked" out in that there was a rehearsal going on in the main venue. We were able to listen and watch the warmup for about 10 minutes. The group was quite large and our guide was a quick walker. Sometimes ,if we unfortunately got behind the slower members of our group, we did not have as long at the next stop to look and listen as when we were nearer the guide . Overall, a good tour and one we would recommend. We chose to purchase the additional meal component and enjoyed our food and beverage in the opera bar. As other reviewers have stated, you order from a more limited food and beverage list taken from the regular menu. The food was nice and on such a rainy day , we were glad to eat following our tour which wrapped up at 430,instead of having to go out in the downpour and try to find a dry,warm place to eat.
Very underwhelming Sydney Opera House Tour. Lunch choices as part of the package were also marginal
Jackie_R, Apr 2024
So looking forward to our tour of the Opera House and instead found it so underwhelming and disappointing. The audio was a very boring script that was delivered by French student whose English was marginal. Plus she was very young had only been in the country a few months and had no anecdotes to add to her narration. Further inside the opera house we never got to hear any audio to be able to appreciate the Acoustics l. It was a very ordinary tour that I will definitely not recommend to anyone. There was a little bit of history that was offered in a corner of one of the hall spaces where you had to sit on a rug......
Must do
Rebecca_G, Apr 2024
Nic, the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the opera house. Two og the theaters that we saw had activities going on, which was wonderful to see. Getting the meal was quite tasty.
Would like to hear about...

Rowena_P, Mar 2024
This tour was excellent. Even if you have seen the Opera House the interesting facts and information you receive is unreal

Great afternoon. Delicious dinner. Amazing constructions. Sad that the design was politically motivated. We topped it off with a show!

Marina_F, Mar 2024
The opera house is gorgeous, I wish photos were allowed inside. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and considerate of folks needing addl assistance
The Opera House was a true wonder as well as our guide Nicholas!
Hugh_H, Mar 2024
We cannot recommend the tour of the Sydney Opera House enough! Our favorite was the Great Gatsby room but other areas were very nice as well. Our fantastic guide, Nicholas, was incredibly well spoken and knowledgeable about the Opera House. He was, well spoken, always prompt and available to answer any questions we had, making the entire experience seamless. The food options provided during the tour were delicious, and we were thoroughly impressed with the job done on all of our meals. Overall, it was a truly great afternoon that we will always remember fondly. Thank you to Nicholas for a remarkable afternoon.
Beautiful inside and out!
Rebecca_A, Mar 2024
