Opera Performance at the Sydney Opera House

Sydney, Australia

My Review

Great singing!! The bad part was that when booking C- Circle section with Viator at a total cost of $116 there was NO MENTION of NOT being able to see the translation box (it sits above the stage and translates from Italian to English). Unfortunately, one cannot see the translations past row V and I was placed in row W. This information should be added to Viator for people like me who have come a very long way to see the show and spent the first half of La Boheme with my head crooked on my lap trying to see up to the translator box. Fortunately, the house was not full, and when I approached the management at intermission, they gave me a closer seat where I could clearly see the translations and I was able to enjoy the Opera sitting up straight!! The inside of the Opera House was not as grand as I had thought it would be, but the overal experience was - a once in a lifetime!!

My Review

The neighborhood walk and explanations were excellent. Alexandra did a great job!
My complaint is that Monday, August 15 was a holiday and in my opinion the trip should've been cancelled since half of the good pastry shops were closed. So we ended up going to some shops that weren't that good!! We started with a bread shop, and to be honest, I wouldn't include a bread sampling as it's very filling and after all it's a pastry tour!! Other than that - we were only 4 people to our group, so we only got to taste 4 pastries at each site, but if we would have been 8 we would have tried more. For 90 Euros... I expected to be able to taste more pastries and GOOD chocolates|!!
Final comment... I personally wasn't feeling that well... when I had asked if at the last 2 shops if I could get the sampling to go as I was unable to eat them - I was faced with some indifference. Again... I think for 90 Euros per person... a take away box/bag should not have been an issue! The overhead for the tour is negligible. Perhaps 100 Euros was spent for the 4 of us on the pastries that we tried yet we paid 360 combined. That's a pretty big profit even after paying for the guide!
So to close - I would recommend the walking tour for sure as the guide was excellent... but I think the price overall is too high!
