This was a wonderful experience. We loved being on stage and seeing all the backstage activities, especially the orchestra pit. Our grandson plays the bass violin and we photographed that spot in the pit, as well as one of the violas, as our granddaughter plays that. We heartily recommend this tour.

This tour was well worth the price and the early hour! We thoroughly enjoyed the look at behind the scenes areas of the opera house, and the breakfast was bountiful and delicious.

This is a very early morning tour starting at 7:00 am so keep that in mind when booking. My husband and I took this tour along with about 10 others. We had a great guide and learned so much about the history and most importantly about Jorn Utzun, the Danish Artchitect who was the winner of the international competition to build a national opera house at Bennelong Point, Sydney in 1957 and how it went for him. We were surprised by the story. The opera house is really special and I had no idea it was a multi venue showing art center. There are 5 stages that you will visit and each one was designed for a specific venue. We learned that the tiles on the outside were made in Sweden and are self washing. We did not get into the area where the props were as there was some work welding going on and it was a safety issue. We did get to visit the green room. I can't remember why, but we were treated to our breakfast on the outside patios overlooking the Sydney Harbor Bridge. It doesn't get much better than that. Take the tour and have a great time. We did.

Outstanding, Well worth the money. There were only 6 in our tour, so it was a very intimate group. Our guide made the Opera House come alive.
