What people are saying about Sydney

We chose a weekday - Monday - to see the museum, and the kids had a great time. With hardly anybody about, the girls were able to take their time and see what they wanted to, with umpteen different poses for photographs. Our eldest had a ball with the magazine cover and virtual makeup. Overall, very glad we went

It was an awesome experience, big thanks to our tour guide Karyen (apology for spelling mistake, if any), she was really nice with everyone and shared every possible details about SCG and it's history.

Our guide, a lady named Gail was excellent. Very engaging, knowledgeable and a great sense of humour. She made the tour.
