If you have the choice to do this or Warner Bros, choose this. We had done Warner Bros the day before and were apprehensive after a lacklustre tour there but the difference is like night and day! Our guide Tony was awesome, he knew his stuff and kept the whole tour really fun and interesting. We were given a great... More

Ok so as you may have read the reviews it is divided in 2 groups! The people who hated and the ones (like me) who loved it! First of all, BREAKING BAD FANS will be thrilled!! We really got excited the moment we saw the RV! Great great! (maybe you guys can add more stuff about BB so we'd come... More

We went on several tours on our recent trip to LA and this was our favorite. The tour guide was funny and personable. We were able to visit sets from The Goldbergs and Jeopardy, which was great. Since it is a walking tour, you are able to see a bit more than some of the tram tours. The tour guide... More

A great tour, although our guide didn't seem particularly interested in either us or the studio! We did book in advance, which I think may be a requirement, but I'm not 100% on that. Parking is available under the studio building, and the tour is a walking tour, which crosses the road onto the studio lot. In spite of the... More

Give yourself plenty of time to arrive as LA traffic is LA traffic and it can be, and usually is hectic. This, and Universal are our favorites and we take our out-of-state guests here. Enormous, sprawling, covered parking structure is Free and everyone knows parking is expensive in LA. Sony really accommodates disabled, challenged guests. That is the word, everyone... More

Took quite a while to get there as the traffic was bad, great to learn all about the history of the people who have passed through the famous buildings, saw the jeopardy set and the Ghost busters car which was awesome, not our favorite tour we did but if you have time we would recommend doing!

We booked this tour first out of all the hotel tours because it tends to have the least favourable reviews. However we were really happy with it. We got there late due to heavy traffic, but they allowed us to join anyways. We just missed the short video they show at the start. Once we crossed over from the office... More

What a treat to see one of my favorite TV game shows being taped for future showing Everyone affiliated with Sony Entertainment and the Jeopardy crew were very nice and helpful. Be sure to contact the website to arrange for TV show tickets for when you are in the Los Angeles area. I was fortunate that a relative of my... More

Our guide Sam was upbeat, fun, and very informative. He made this the best of the studio tours (and I did all of them!) The variety of things that you get to see and experience makes this my favorite by far. We stood in the soundstage where Judy Garland performed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", among many other famous movie scores... More

We enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide, Kelly, was enthusiastic, well-spoken, and very knowledgeable about the myriad aspects of the studio’s operations. He also displayed a nice team spirit, always referring to the company as “we” and not “they,” yet he did not come across as a company “tool.” Aside from the tour itself, we appreciated Sony’s meticulous maintenance...
