Wonderful, exciting and staggeringly beautiful.

We were new to Australia and Sydney, so this was a box ticked on our bucket list. I am old enough to have witnessed (from afar) the conception, creation and construction of this project. I am also old enough for this edifice to have insulted my views on my very traditional Architectural values. Time has changed my opinions, my beliefs and my values. A few weeks ago we were visiting family in Sydney and a tour of the S.O.H.became an option. I can't tell you how special this transpired to be. We were transfixed with the whole aspect and can now endorse most opinions that this is a true Wonder of the modern world. Superlative are insufficiently descriptive as is my feeble attempt to create a meaningful overview. All I can say is WOW. Just a trifle sad that we were unable to have attended a performance, irrespective of artistic or musical discipline. This would truly have put the icing on top of the cake. Maybe........ some day !!!

Very interesting first hand experience of The Opera House.

The guided tour gave us the history of the design and time involved in completion of the Opera House. Also the story of Jorn Utzen and the tragic way he left Australia to never return and see his iconic building. It was great to sit inside each theatre and find out the type of performances in each one and the technical details of how stage and lighting function. Our Spanish guide was very enthusiastic and she welcomed questions from the group. She made us aware of the beauty of the building and the daily functioning with a performance taking place and some rehearsals also. We enjoyed some lovely food as part of the tour overlooking the Bridge and the harbour.

An interesting insight into the History & workings of the Opera House

Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us the history of the Opera House and also an insight into the behind the scenes workings of staging performances. We were expecting the " tasting plate" that we opted for as an extra, to be some cooked meats, olives etc. The quantity of food was staggering and would easily have fed a family of four and the quality was also excellent.

An amazing Tour Guide for a fantastic building

Stephen our tour guide for the Sydney Opera House Tour was so passionate and amazing! The Tour was fascinating and to get inside this amazing structure to see how it was made and how this amazing building came to life. What an iconic building and the views were just jaw dropping. Keep up the amazing work Stephen!

Excellent opportunity to really see the workings of the Opera House

This tour leaves early, so that the group, limited to 12 each day, can access backstage and working areas of nearly all the performance spaces within the complex. Our tour guide Alan was truly excellent. His love for the space and knowledge about its inner workings really showed. Worth every penny!
