The Sydney Opera House was destined for greatness ever since it opened in 1973, and today it is one of Australia's most recognizable icons. Your guide will bring to life the amazing stories behind this miracle of architecture and engineering on your one-hour tour. You'll visit one of the major concert halls in the opera house, where over 1,500 performances are staged each year, and immerse yourself in the dramatic world of Australia's premier performing arts center. The short one-hour tour leaves you with plenty of time in the day free to enjoy in Sydney.

Enhance your tour and enjoy a gourmet tasting plate for two (if option selected), at the Opera Kitchen. The delicious three-tier tasting plate sample menu includes: sushi, prawns and plank roasted salmon, mini wagyu and chicken burgers, dumplings, spring rolls and crunchy fries. Relax on the lower concourse of Sydney Opera House while taking in the spectacular views and taste sumptuous treats from the award-winning chefs. Dine before or after your tour, the choice is yours!

This tour is a great way to see inside the Sydney Opera House rooms. You will hear all about the history of the "house" and funny and entertaining little stories about past events. It's worth the time and money!

Reviewed by: paul b, September 2014

The guide was very informative and passionate about the Sydney Opera House, so much so it was infectious. We chose the time for the tour during the lunch time so the numbers were only 7, yet the earlier tour had 40 people. So, timing is critical if you want a more personalised service.
To meet at the proper tour gathering site was a bit of a challenge ... It wasn't clear so give yourself a bit of time.
Overall, most enjoyable!
