On our first trip 'down under' we booked this tour to do something really special on our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour guide was knowledgeable and informative, and it was a real thrill to see part of the interior of this iconic building. Certain parts were 'off-limits' but in the hour we saw the main performance areas and saw some short videos relating to the history of building it. There is a longer 'breakfast' tour available but an hour was long enough for us as there were other places we planned to see that day.
We were very pleased we'd done this tour and felt Viatour's price for it was very competitive.
We had a bad start to this tour as the scheduled pick-up from our hotel was late arriving, and there was chaos and confusion because 'the office had made a mistake.' We were therefore late starting the tour and it became rather rushed which was a shame as it was very interesting and we would have liked more time in the Peranakan Museum.
We also visited the Spice Garden, and a lovely Peranakan lady called Doris who demonstrated the preparation of a typical
food and then we were able to try some of the foods. We enjoyed the tour very much in spite of the inauspicious start.
