"Outstanding, Well worth the money. There were only 6 in our tour, so it was a very intimate group. Our guide made the Opera House come alive." - Michael L. April 2015

“We went this morning on the Backstage Tour and had such an informative and entertaining tour with our guide Adam. The time went so quickly and we were all amazed at what is hidden away behind the scenes.  It will certainly make me appreciate everything much more when I attend the various theatres in the Opera House. Thank you again for this very rewarding experience.” - Sandra Tiltman August 2014

"Don't let the 0700 start deter you - it’s worth it! And there's a big yummy breakfast waiting for you at the end - SO great!" -  Tripadvisor October 2013
