Very knowledgeable & enthusiastic guide who enabled us to understand the whole process of theatre production, props, scene changes, dressing rooms, lighting etc. Inspired us to go back and see the opera that evening which was wonderful.
Splendid...just what you have written and more. So wonderful, and our guide was simply a lovely, lovely lady.

This was quite enjoyable! Getting to go on stage at each of the large venues in the Opera House and getting breakfast at the end in the green room was pretty cool! The guide is quite knowledgeable regarding the Opera House itself as well. If you are looking for a unique experience, this is one I'd recommend.
A delightful guide and the breakfast was scrumptious.

Very personal tour with a great guide who added a lot with his fun personality.
I received this tour as a birthday present, so I can't comment on "value for money" as I don't know how much it cost, but as someone who's passionate about the theatre, it is a wonderful experience in one of the world's greatest buildings. Being able to stand on the stage of the Sydney Opera House is an opportunity not to be missed - I would recommend it to anyone who's interested to see how this great building works and what happens behind the scenes.
This is an absolutely incredible tour! The tour starts very early, but we were treated like VIPs from the moment we walked through the Stage Door of the Sydney Opera House. Our tour guide was so cheerful and informative that the tour was enjoyable from start to finish. We got to see the multiple different concert halls, we were able to stand on stage, and were taken to many places that the general public never gets to see! And the breakfast at the end of the tour in the Green Room was fantastic! I would recommend this tour to anyone who visits Sydney and has an interest in the Sydney Opera House!
Interesting, informative and exciting. We loved it. It was quite a thrill being in the orchestra pit. It was a nice complement to the regular Opera Tour because it covered different information.
Our tour guide was amazing. This was worth getting up early for but it does not standalone. I highly recommend taking the essentials tour right after the backstage to get the full experience.
Our guide was amazingly well informed. She was also unbelievably kind because I made a huge mistake and booked the tour for one day before we arrived in Sydney. I got mixed up on the date line issues and our guide let us join the tour the next day and made us feel comfortable as well.
This was a great tour and worth doing! Our tour guide was amazing and knew everything. This tour DOES NOT go into the making or building of the Opera House and I heard there is a 3-hour tour that includes the cultural and architectural aspects of this building which would have been the best of both worlds! You will NOT be disappointed with this tour and breakfast was actually good!
This tour was great, mostly because the wonderful guide. I'm not a theater guru, but I enjoyed seeing behind the scenes how things work and some of the sets used for different shows. It all looks so fake close up! It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to go somewhere iconic such as the Sydney Opera House and get a behind the scenes look. It's nice that you go early in the morning on the only tour, so there are no crowds.
This was a very interesting tour.
