There are various Sydney tours available, taking in the city’s sights, but one of the most popular takes in the iconic Opera House. Even if you aren’t especially interested in opera, a tour takes you behind the scenes of one of the world’s most famous buildings. Tours typically take in the backstage area and dressing rooms, foyer and the auditorium. Some include cocktails, breakfast or dinner, and every tour offers the opportunity to take photographs of the uniquely designed building and Sydney’s harbour. Tours of the Opera House last anywhere from 20 minutes to a couple of hours and are led by experienced guides who are able to bring the building’s history to life. It isn’t always easy to buy tickets to a performance here, and for many visitors to Sydney a behind the scenes tour is the next best thing.
