This is definitely worth it. Viator tickets get you on the first available tour. Amazing does not adequately describe this building. Wish we could have been able to book a concert. Our schedule and their schedule didn't work.

Great tour. really informative about the architect, construction, features and history of the opera house. Guide was great. It was a really hot day so she tailored the top to be mostly inside. You see three main areas including the concert hall, a small theatre and the reception room but not inside the actual hall where opera is performed as there was one in progress. The views from inside are amazing.The best bit for me was being outside in between the two main sails and being able to see and touch the tiles! And don't let the stairs put you off, it was easy. There was one person on our tour who had walking issues so the guide turned on escalators whenever she could throughout the tour.Would definitely recommend this tour.
This was a very great experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We learned a ton about the Sydney House operations, how it was built, and was able to see 4 of the theatres. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Great Tour, Great Guide, Amazingly beautiful Opera House. Jørn Utzon definitely was a genius!
Looking forward to come back next time we are in your beautiful country and hopefully see an opera!

Wonderful tour guide! A unique place and perspective on Sydney politics, history and architecture! We saw backstage and front of house from top to bottom of the opera house. Just over an hour and well worth the time.
The Opera House is a creation of timeless inspiration and beauty - our guide was enthusiastic, warm and spell binding!
Don't finish your trip without this Opera House inside walking tour. Inside the building is awesome than outside. we were lucky to see one Ballet rehearsal. The guide was very cooperative and answer all our questions.
Great Tour Guides well informed. So many stages to see. Be sure to stop at the Video by Samsung.
The headphones make is super nice to be able to hear the tour guide the entire time.
Great tour, wish we'd had time to take in a play or something while we were there.. Beautiful structure and very interesting to see how it came to be.
Loved it. Informative, fun and enthralling details about the Sydney Opera house. Katie, our guide was fantastic! The tour itself involves visiting all of the concert halls and theatres inside the Sydney Opera house along with details about the designer/architect, access to the inside of the opera house, fun details about the designing process, amazing views of the harbour from the 1st floor of the concert hall. Must do when visiting the Sydney Opera House.
The Sydney Opera Tour Guide was extremely knowledgeable. The tour provided a great overview of the drama that was involved in the planning and construction of the Opera House.
This is a great tour and excellent for the price. The guide had many year's experience and was very knowledgeable.
Fantastic Opera house, wonderful architecture, tour guide was excellent

This tour was so interesting and our guide was wonderful - she knew so much about the history, and the current work of the Opera House. It was a great hour spent. I would so recommend anyone to go on this tour.
A great tour of the backstage as well as talk about the Architect who designed the building as well as a description of the tiles on the building, structure and how it is air conditioned...Inside we were introduced to one room with accoustic rounds hanging from the ceiling as well as a pipe organ see picture and it has 10,000 pipes behind the ones showing,
Magnificent Master Piece ! and very interesting Tour, especially with a French Guide, it makes it still more interesting if the guide speaks your own language... We discovered lots of details on the construction of the Opera House, its architect, many details on the characteristics of the buildings etc.
Quel Chef d'Oeuvre ! si vous voulez apprécier cette visite, réservez une visite avec un guide Français, vous apprendrez tout, tout, tout sur la construction de cet édifice, vous découvrirez tous les détails sur les difficultés qu'a rencontré son architecte, plein de détails techniques sur la construction, et vous pourrez même visiter les salles de concert,... inoubliable !
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide who seemed to be passionate about his job.
