    So many steps so if you have bad knees like I do, beware! Loved having the headphones so we could hear the tour guide. This is a must do while in Sydney. Very reasonably priced and worth every penny.

    With the tour, we are able to access some areas that were generally not open to tourists, including 3 of the halls and some balconies. The guide speaks very clear and the storytelling was amazing.

    Our tour guide was Bella, she was informative and fun! Would highly recommend this tour, so many facts we did not know about this fabulous venue and the views were spectacular!

    It was nice to see the inside of the opera house but I was disappointed that we did not get a more behind-the-scenes look, like seeing backstage of a theater or a green room.
