We did the tour of the opera. The guide was already waiting for us with a sign with our name on it. First, a tour was given outside with information that gave extra clarification for inside. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything clearly. Inside the tour was great too. Well worth it.

This is an exceptional private tour!! Our tour started even outside the Opera house and we learnt so many interesting information not only about the building but about real facts of the Opera's life throughout the years!! Definitively recommended!

Our guide, Simon, was informative, funny, and engaging. He really seemed to be enjoying his job and being our host. He gave a good restaurant tip and even called ahead to tell the owner we were coming. We loved the tour and recommend it highly.

An informative and entertaining tour of the museum and the opera house, great guide and fascinating information.

My guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. I highly recommend a private tour.
