The best tour ever! Steve was an amazing tour guide. Everything I would expect from a Viator Tour. Informative, fun and just a delightful experience. I have been to Sydney 3 times and this was the first time I decided to do this tour because my 13 year old daughter was with me and had a report due on the Sydney Opera House. The history came alive with the stories you won't find in any books and to be there and experience standing on stage....absolutely a priceless memory.

A wonderful tour, we were fortunate in thatwe were able to experience part of a symphony rehearsal. We learned how the building were constructed and the historical significance of the Opera house.

We really enjoyed this tour once we found our way into the Opera House to the ticket windows. There weren't any signs and we ended up circling the whole Opera House until we found someone to direct us. Once on the tour, it was great. The guide was knowledgable and there was an interesting short film about the history of how the opera house was designed and built which was an arduous process since there had never been a design of shells creating a massive structure before. And there was a long process to pick the architect and select his untraditional concept. The building itself is wonderful and we were so lucky to happen to visit the main auditorium when the symphony was practicing...heavenly!

Excellent guide and we recommend this tour to anyone rather an opera fan or not. It is the interior architecture and building of this iconic structure that is so informative. We have already recommended
this tour to several people on our vacation. Sorry I can't remember our guide's name but he was so interesting and quite theatrical in his presentation. Worth every penny spent on this tour.

The tour of both the Opera House and the Concert Hall was interesting and given by a very good guide. The dinner at the Aria Restaurant was very well prepared and the service was excellent. The Ballet was wonderful - the house was sold out and the costumes and dances were magnificent. It was well worth the time and cost.

This was an amazing experience from start to finish! The tour guide was very knowledgable about the opera house complex and patiently answered all questions. She personally walked me to the Aria Restaurant where I experienced a fabulous meal. The opera was fantastic.

Great tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and excited about being able to show us the Opera House. The breakfast was great - a few options to choose from, and everybody in our group enjoyed their selections. The guide gave suggestions for activities, shows to see, and restaurants based on what we wanted to do in Sydney. It was cool to see the Opera House behind the scenes - something not a lot of people get to do!
