Sydney Opera House, Sydney Reviews

  • I highly recommend taking the guided tour. They give great information and you get an in-depth view of all the different areas of the Opera house. Our tour guide was awesome! This building is a modern marvel! The views from around the area were gorgeous. I would love to go back and watch a show there.

  • Iconic architecture! Well deserved it's fame and popularity! It can get extremely crowded, especially during Vivid. To be honest, I didn't really like this year's (2018) compositions for Vivid. There were much more interesting works in previous years. I hope they'll make it better in future.

  • The Sydney Opera house maintains a lot of dignity despite being known as a top tourist destination. The staff ensure the lobbies are kept clean and clear, the bag storage system is efficient and secure, and there are appropriate restrictions on where you take food and beverages. You still feel the formal atmosphere expected in an opera house or theatre. Personally I am not one for the overly posh scene, I find it unnerving, but the staff maintain an air of friendliness that puts you at ease. Still, you can also visit on the outside for the classic tourist photo as well.

  • The train stop at Circular Quay. Stepping off the train the first thing came into my eyes was the astonishing view outside the window. It's makes me feel like I'm a kid first time visiting Jurassic World. And then when you step out of the station, the wind that comes the sea. The cold of Australia winter. The sound of the vehicles and people talking. And also the smell that comes from the restaurant. There is no word to describe this's just perfect. When the sun goes out and the lights come out, its one of the most beautiful scene I've ever seen

  • Excellent experience! This is a must visit place if you are in Sydney. The views are breathtaking. The tour was very nice. The history is explained in the tour and also if you are lucky then you can see various theatres/halls inside. At night we saw a light show which was about 10-20 minutes and was a wonderful experience. There are a lot of restaurants next to opera house which give you excellent views to enjoy over dinner. Highly recommended!
