A must see. We went on a one hour tour with Oscar, a brilliant guide who spoke so passionately about the history of the Sydney Opera House. It was a very interesting tour seeing the studio, the drama studio, the amazing concert hall and the Joan Sutherland Theatre. We had booked our tickets before we left England.

The guided tour of the opera house is well worth doing, it allows you to see the architecture up close, understand some of the history & politics of the building and is fascinating. There are also some fantastic views of the harbour bridge. Our tour guide, Danny, was excellent.

I did this tour 2 years ago and absolutely loved it. I took my family back for a tour a few days ago. The Opera House offers fabulous views and a great insight into Australia’s most well known icon. Unfortunately this time our guide was flustered or just not that interested in doing his best in conducting the tour. This was completely different to my previous experience where the guide had fabulous stories and facts to share that were very interesting. Our guide this time couldn’t get the equipment to work properly at times and was just plain dull. A shame for such a great icon that attracts a massive international audience.

I was keen to visit (having seen the picture so many times), but the tour took the building to a whole new level. We couldn't see a performance, but just going into the concert hall was wonderful. The guides point out so many things we would have missed (for example the sinks in the loos!). We spent time sitting in the outdoor bar just gazing across the harbour. One not to miss!

We did a half day tour of the house with included taster lunch and views of the auditoriums, wounderful if you are interested in architecture
