What You Can Expect
The Sydney Opera House was destined for greatness ever since it opened in 1973, and today it is one of Australia's most recognizable icons. Your guide will bring to life the amazing stories behind this miracle of architecture and engineering on your one-hour tour.
Visit one of the opera house’s major concert halls, where more than 1,500 performances are staged each year, and immerse yourself in the dramatic world of Australia's premier performing arts center. Plus, at only one hour, the tour leaves you with plenty of time free to further explore Sydney on your own before your ship leaves.
Upgrade your tour and enjoy a gourmet tasting plate for two (if option selected), at the Opera Kitchen. The delicious three-tier tasting plate sample menu includes: sushi, prawns and plank roasted salmon, mini wagyu and chicken burgers, dumplings, spring rolls and crunchy fries. Relax on the lower concourse of Sydney Opera House while taking in the spectacular views and taste sumptuous treats from the award-winning chefs. Dine before or after your tour, the choice is yours!
Sydney Opera House is located within a 10-minute walk of the cruise port at Circular Quay so you determine the time you return to your ship. Please allow ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
We took an early AM tour of the Opera house, just before the big groups arrieved. There was almost no waiting time. Our group was pretty small and our tour guide very knowledgable and informativ.
When in Sydney, this tour is a must.
