Very good package, informative tour of opera house followed by a good dinner at Aria and tickets to a performance which was sold out for general tickets

Reviewed by: Addie W, December 2014

I would highly recommend this package! The evening started off with an informative tour of the Sydney Opera House. Our tour guide, Gwen, spoke both English and French to enable the 7 of our small party to understand every word. My husband and I were particularly impressed with our meal at Aria. Perfectly cooked and flavored, our dinner was wonderful. The Australian Ballet performed the Nutcracker with good form and colorful stage props. Our only issue came not from the tour, but from the extensive construction occurring at the Sydney Opera House. Our meeting point was changed three times and it was very difficult to navigate between the Opera House and Aria. This is soon be completed and future patrons will enjoy the package even more.
