We did the 7:00 two hour morning tour and it totally exceeded all of my expectations. Our guide was great. We were shown dressing rooms, stage elevators, lighting fixtures, control centers, props and much much more. I gained great insight into all of the "behind the scenes" stuff that is required to put on a show.

The tickets seemed pricey when I bought them but I actually got good value.

Don't miss an opportunity to tour the Opera House. It is iconic and truly amazing. I would like to attend a performance there if we ever return to Sydney.

In my perfect world, I would have gone to the ballet instead of taking a tour, but my boys, 11 & 13 were not having it. So we opted for the tour. It was fascinating and far more than I expected. From the knowledge our tour guide gave, to being able to go inside the opera house and even the theatres, was well worth the $. The knowledge about the architecture alone was worth it, then to be able to slowly meander through, admiring the building was phenomenal.

Just like in the pictures and movies! This is a "must see" when you visit Sydney. We did also enjoy the Sydney Symphony Orchestra playing the soundtrack from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It was like magic!
