    Amazing tour! I had a 2pm on Sunday August 7th. Loved every minute of it. Our guide was Peter (I hope I got the name right), and he was AWESOME! The stories he had to share, the history of the Opera House, the little bits of information - amazing! He just loves his job, and that's what made the tour so enjoyable! He made me look at the building from a different angle, see the architects behind it, the years of planning and constructing. Thank you!

    So worth the money! You get a headset so you can hear your guide as you walk around as they talk into a microphone that your headset is connected to which was great because you don’t miss any information. They give you a quick look round of some of the theatres and walk you through one of the buildings and the lookout from the back! Perfect amount of history vs walking etc

    Great value for money. You receive lots of insight into the story, construction and future of the Opera House and access to areas you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. You get a discount on Opera House restaurants and can get a discount on some shows as well if you book!
