Experience a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Sydney Harbour iconic landmark on The Sydney Opera House Tour—a full, 60-minute guided walking tour of the famous concert, opera, ballet, and event venue.

On the tour, you’ll uncover the stories, history, and importance of the Sydney Opera House and its architecture with its world-famous ‘sails’ while your entertaining and informative guide takes you behind-the-scenes. You'll get access to areas that are off-limits to the general public and your guide will point out some of the building’s more unique features and rare vantage points to take photos within the SOH—making sure you make the most of your visit.

Explore the theatres and foyers where more than 1,600 concerts, operas, dramas, and ballets take place each year and learn all about its 58-years of history and 14-year creation process and the engineering challenges and solutions that the Danish architect, Jørn Utzon, encountered along the way. You'll get to see the famous shell tiles up close, sit in theatre chairs, and maybe even get a peek of a live rehearsal in progress.

Tip: you’ll be walking a lot on this tour, be sure to wear comfortable footwear!
