We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide Liane was very profesional and friendly. The small group size is perfect. Breakfast was delicious. Facinating views of backstage.
This tour was the highlight of our Sydney tours. The guide was the very best and extremely knowledgeable. It could not have been better, highly recommend it.
I wasn't feeling well that day and had to spend most of the tour time in the Green Room. But toward the end, our tour guide took me through some of the theatres so I could catch up on what I missed. Tour was great and so was he!
Fabulous behind the scenes look at the opera house that cannot be seen any other way. Well done tour with lots of insider information about the opera house.

This was an excellent tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to make sure that everyone got the photos they wanted and their questions answered. The backstage tour takes you to areas that the average person would never had the opportunity to see. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see the real workings of this famous opera house.

The Opera House backstage tour is interesting and enjoyable. Our tour guide was friendly and fun and we learned much about the inner workings of productions. I would recommend the tour even to people who are not opera buffs. There is something here for everyone.

Excellent tour! Our tour guide was wonderful and very passionate about the work he does. We learned so much about the behind the scenes on a typical day at the Opera House. There were certain areas that we could take photos, although not all areas were available for photos. We did get to take photos of each other standing on the conductor's platform ready to direct an "orchestra!" The breakfast was good. We could choose from continental, "healthy breakfast with fruits," or a full Aussie breakfast. The venue or breakfast room was average similar to a cafeteria but the food was good and the guide sat at our table to continue to answer any questions.
I am an amateur theatre buff and this was the most exciting tour I could imagine. The guide was great, being photographed at the director's podium and visiting all five theatres blew my mind. We finished the tour, enjoyed the free breakfast and went to the box office where we snared two tickets for our very first Opera LaTraviata that night. I am slightly disabled and along with other disabled Americans on this Princess Cruisetour, found it difficult climbing the steps to our seats. They really need elevators to all levels like American venues.

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.

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.
Brett M USA
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.
Harvey L USA
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.
Jodie A USA
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!
