AMAZING!!! Seen Swan Lake and it was breath taking. The restaurant was so elegant and the food was so delicious. Every one should do this. The only problem was the tour of the Opera House was not that good, I thought we were going back stage and we never did get there and the tour guy seemed kind of confused at times.

Dinner could not have been better. The guide was courteous and what he knew was interesting, but I had thought we would see the backstage. Unfortunately I didn't know about the breakfast tour which the guide indicated was the tour that would have shown the mechanics of the building. The performance was incredible.

It was a little disappointing. The food was average and the show was really boring. The Opera House was very nice.

The Opera House is a must see. The ballet was fantastic as was dinner at Aria. Our tour guide however was not terribly knowledgeable.

The Tour was a bit superficial but the Food at the Bennelong Restaurant was absolutely outstanding and the seats for the performance were very good

The tour around the Opera House was informative and interesting.We had dinner at the Aria which was OK but not fantastic. The ballet was just wonderful, from Principles, Soloists, to the Corps de Ballet. All in all a great package which we would have awarded 5* had the first 2 courses of the meal been as good as the desert.

Tour guide told as if he has known everyone how build the Opera House. Tour was not so long, Diner with view at the stairs was amazing and the ballet also. Good chairs, enough space.

The organisation was very good and we were expected at all venues. The restaurant we chose was changed to the Aria restaurant, which was excellent with superb food. The ballet seats could not have been better positioned. Because of the popularity of the Opera house, I'm glad we booked from the UK .

Our Viator passes for public transportation and for the main attractions was a definite time saver. Our Viator pass for the tour of the Sydney Opera House only had one flaw: Our tickets for the ballet were in row V and could have been better for the price that we paid.

It was a great package and we had a terrffic evening. Starting with private tour of the Opera House, followed by a fantastic meal and service at Guillaume Restaurant and the Ballet "Silver Rose". The staff at Sydney Opera House staff and Guillaume Restaurant were all very warm and friendly and definitely help make it a memorable evening. We also thought that the package was very good value for money. The only minor problem we had was with the voucher for interval drinks. Although we were told that we could have any wine, cocktails etc, the only thing we couldn't order was the premium champagne, it turned out not to be the case. We could only select from the house wines.

All in all, this was an expensive but fantastic experience. A wonderful production by the Australian ballet, dinner in the opera house. I'm so glad I choose Bennalong as the food was great and the location tremendous, with a tour of the facilities. The tour, while great, was too short at 45 minutes. If only those extra 15 minutes had been included, this package would have rated 4 stars.

I scheduled the ballet with a tour and dinner for my first night in Australia and it was great! I definitely got the red carpet treatment. The ballet was a way to have the music and the dance in a special place I probably won't see again. I had to pinch myself that I was really there! I am glad I could schedule it before I went, there were so many that wanted tickets and performances were sold out.

The Opera House Tour was wonderful and the cuisine was superb. The ballet performance was very enjoyable, but the location of the seats was disappointing in relation to cost and early booking.

It was nice. The dinner does not include drink. I was the only one on the tour I went to.

First of all, the meeting place we were told was not right and we had to ask around. Opera House is and interesting architecture, but our guide's talk was not quite.
Finally at dinner, we had to wait over 30 minutes before seated. US$374 should buy better service.

The tour around The Opera House was not as detailed as we would have liked. Although there were two ballets presented on the night the one was more like a gymnastics show. The Aria Restaurant was most disappointing with not a very good choice of menu.
