The official tour of the Opera House is definitely worth doing. Its almost feels like a privilege to see behind-the-scenes of an iconic UNESCO World Heritage site. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining as we wandered many of the corridors underneath the building.There are...More

Any time you take a walking tour of a facility you are reliant on the knowledge and fluency of your guide. Our guide was near perfect on all counts. You should be aware that you will have many steps to climb. One hour is barely...More

The tour group is disorganised and there were far too many of us in the group. It was good to see and hear about the background of the building, I thought it was too expensive.

Sydney's most famous building of course. Beautiful in the evening sun. Best views from the boat/ferry.

Even though you have seen thousands of images of the Opera House, it is amazing to see it up close. We did the backstage tour and learnt all about the architect and how difficult it was build this magnificent building. Unfortunately, the architect didn't see...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
