Traveler Reviews

This tour was a gift to my parents-in-law. Feedback was they loved it. All round fantastic and highly recommended.

Reviewed by: John Mackenzie, United Kingdom, March 2014

The tour of this iconic building was interesting and informative. The performance of Carmen was more than enjoyable however the pre theatre meal in the adjacent Aria over looking Harbour Bridge and the adjacent Opera house was only surpassed by the service, presentation and quality of a fabulous meal. This rounded off a memorable end of QM2 cruise and a 4 day stay in Sydney.
