terrific behind the scenes tour. visit the stages of many studios hidden within complex. tour guide excellent. Dinner 4 star at Aria.
Concert and acoustics wonderful. Opera house and surrounding harbor views outstanding.

The concert was good, but promoted as Belshazzar's Feast which was 30 mins in length but really excellent. The first part of the programme was 50 mins long and by an unknown composer.
The tour was useless as we were not told that the opera hall was being refurbished and we were shown two other halls one of which we had been to for the concert.
The meal at the restaurant was really minimal. Wine was twice or three times the price at other opera house venues. It really felt like a rip-off.
We cannot recommend this tour to anyone right now. Only the Belshazzar's Feast made us pleased we went.

I heard a wonderful concert in this amazing venue. The tour of the SOH was amazing. I got to go behind the scenes to view the inner working of the House. My tour guide explained the history of the building, the architect and all the struggles involved with actually building it, why there are so many sails and the inner beauty of this venue. I then had dinner at The Bennelong Restaurant! This was amazing. I was seated by the window so I was able to watch the sun set behind the Sydney Harbor Bridge. The photo ops were great. The food was spectacular. I ate for the variety of the locale, including the wine I splurged on. This was a fantastic package. I'd encourage anyone who wants to delve in the Sydney Opera House to experience this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The Opera House tour was brilliant - our guide was clearly besotted with the place and passed his enthusiasm onto us. Our meal was very nice - quite small and ridiculously overpriced - must admit that I would never pay as much for any meal as a rule and as usual, the more you pay, the less you get ! - and the concert was very good. That it was in the Concert Hall was excellent as we thought that was a wonderful room.

The guide was completely knowledgable and the back stage and inside your was absolutely wonderful. It was with a small group and felt private and personal.
Afterward the Aria Restaraunt was a fabulous way to begin a charming night of enjoying the arts as the symphony that followed was perfect!

The concert was great, as well as the tour and dinner.
