Tour description provided by Viator

Go behind the scenes at the World Heritage listed Sydney Opera House, one of the world's "must-see" attractions. On your one-hour guided walking tour of the Sydney Opera House, you'll see what goes on behind the world's most recognizable sails. You'll hear the controversial story of the building's construction, as dramatic as any opera plot and brought alive by the tour's new interactive audio-visual presentation.

The Sydney Opera House was destined for greatness ever since it opened in 1973, and today it is one of Australia's most recognizable icons. Your guide will bring to life the amazing stories behind this miracle of architecture and engineering on your one-hour tour. You'll visit one of the major concert halls in the opera house, where over 1,500 performances are staged each year, and immerse yourself in the dramatic world of Australia's premier performing arts center. The short one-hour tour leaves you with plenty of time in the day free to enjoy in Sydney.

Enhance your tour and enjoy a gourmet tasting plate for two (if option selected), at the Opera Kitchen. The delicious three-tier tasting plate sample menu includes: sushi, prawns and plank roasted salmon, mini wagyu and chicken burgers, dumplings, spring rolls and crunchy fries. Relax on the lower concourse of Sydney Opera House while taking in the spectacular views and taste sumptuous treats from the award-winning chefs. Dine before or after your tour, the choice is yours!
