This is quite an interesting 2 hours but it is basically looking at empty soundstages and sitting on the set of Wheel of Fortune, where the staging had been taken to Hawaii for filming. The souvenir shops only had very large sizes of clothing, so if you are little there isn't much to buy.

I have gone on 3 studio tours, so I don't claim to be an expert on them in any way. I do know a little about movie and film history, so I base my opinion on how well a tour focuses on that interest. So, with that in mind, I was a little underwhelmed. First of all, this is the... More

I didn't hate it but was disappointed in this tour. We walked around alot of buildings and saw the outside of them. Saw a few cars from movies that were there for eye candy for the tours. We were taken into some voice/music recording studios but they did not let you hear anything. It would have been cool to hear... More

My son and I did the walking tour at Sony after being crammed in three to a golf cart seat at WB. This was so much better. Our guide, Tony, was amazing. We saw the sets for Queen Latifah and Wheel of Fortune. The best part? We saw/talked to a couple of the stars of The Goldbergs! So friendly! This... More

The WB saw better sets and was worth the time. I am glad we did both, but I wish we had done this one first so I wouldn't have been disappointed compared to WB.

As part of our Laurel and Hardywood Convention, we booked a tour at Sony. Sony Pictures is located on the old MGM studio lots, and we were shown many of the "older" buildings named after many of the older stars from days gone by. I thought there would be a bit more regarding the "old MGM" years than there was.... More

There is a lot of negative reviews about this tour, but I found this an excellent tour. Its a walking tour, starting in a modern headquarters, we got on to the sets of the Queen Latifa show, Wheel of Fortune and Masters of Sex.

I never write reviews but am compelled to do so today. This tour was a disappointment. Having been to the Warner tour I was expecting so much more to share my husband. The lobby is the best part of whole tour and you can see all that free without a ticket. You do not see anything on this tour except... More

I did this tour a couple of weeks ago whilst on holiday in LA. I had done the Paramount Studio tour 3 years ago on a previous trip and so I was really disappointed by the Sony tour. There was nothing wrong with the guide but we had to walk everywhere whereas at Paramount you are taken around on one... More

A great way to spend a couple of hours enjoying the sound stages and memorabilia of Sony pictures. The tour starts with a 20 minute film looking back at the history of Sony, you then get a guided tour of the studios. We did both this and the Warner Bros VIP tour and would highly recommend them both.
