Amanda our local guide from opera house was amazing. The tour was informative and Amanda has great sense of humor.. Was really a delightful guided tour with her.5 pm tour is one of the best timing.highly recommended
My 2nd time around and Rick's first; a blowy, windy, rainy day; but it is so beautiful and awe inspiring; the docent was very nice and very kind to us; lots of steps; but a wonderful experience again- but it was very
difficult to find out where we would get tickets to change from via tour's sheet of paper we had; that was a
great problem and in future; just buy the ticket yourself and find out where the box office for tickets is located.
While in Sydney in September 2014, I chose to take this tour a week earlier than booked through Viator. The group ticket office at the Opera House had no problem changing the date.
You're not told about the number of stairs until you're on the tour. However, you are given the option of getting a refund. I stayed on the tour with the guide, Amanda after discussing an alternate option.
The pride that Amanda shows in the facility is obvious, and the tour is worth taking. First you're shown a short film about the construction of the Opera House then after seeing a playhouse for Shakespeare productions and the concert hall, you see another film about the architect before the tour ends.
There are no pictures allowed inside the playhouse or the concert hall. That's a shame, because the inlaid wood and walls are a big WOW! factor.
This tour is a great way to see inside the Sydney Opera House rooms. You will hear all about the history of the "house" and funny and entertaining little stories about past events. It's worth the time and money!
The guide was very informative and passionate about the Sydney Opera House, so much so it was infectious. We chose the time for the tour during the lunch time so the numbers were only 7, yet the earlier tour had 40 people. So, timing is critical if you want a more personalised service.
To meet at the proper tour gathering site was a bit of a challenge ... It wasn't clear so give yourself a bit of time.
Overall, most enjoyable!
Informative. Learned lots I never even thought to think about in the building of this structure. Getting to see inside the rehearsal halls while the orchestra was rehearsing was the highlight. Was worth the $$.
Great tour and tasting. Very busy tourist area. Ticket area staff was not well trained and they had to find us later to give us the correct tour and tasting tickets. Worth doing...
fantastic guide, educational, visual insight was fabulous. we felt like we are in europe amongst 20 something europian tourists. make sure you go when the weather is nice. it was 20 degrees when we went and view from inside out is like you are looking at a postcard. our guide spoke in english but she knew german and mandarin. she always stopped to ask if we had any questions and was very polite. one hour is enough to go around and get informed about opera house and its backstage and how the stages are moved according to specific opera requirements.
This is a must for everyone visiting Sydney... The tour guid was good
Great access to interior and exterior and interesting history lessons from the guide.
Have taken it previously, but just as interesting.
Excellent guide. Microphone worked well for those who are hard of hearing .
Certainly recommend it
