    This was a fabulous tour, full of information and fascinating facts delivered by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who really loved the opera house and it’s history. He also had a wonderful dry Aussie sense of humour. Our group of 9 had ages ranging from 16 to 76. All enjoyed it and all found fascinating. I would say not suitable for really little kids but from say 10 years upwards (unless they are super focused and really interested in architecture) would be suitable. Brilliant morning out.
