Not too bad...

Prompt, informative and entertaining. Parking is free and right under the building where tour starts. Tour guide expects to be tipped.

This review is for a taping of the quiz show 'Jeopardy' at Sony Picture Studios. We took a bus tour from our home town to LA specifically to see a taping of the TV quiz show 'Jeopardy' at Sony Studios. Fortunately for us, the bus tour company arranged everything like getting the tickets, etc. I probably wouldn't have gone under... More

Disappointing studio tour. The Warner tour is much better. There are a few things that are worth seeing, the RV from Breaking Bad, the ghostbusters car but too often a lot is pointed out and you were told what happened inside it in the past but what you are looking at could just as easily be a home depot store...

I went on this tour during my second visit to LA and I had mixed feelings if this was going to be worth the money to do. I had already toured Warner Brothers and I figured that it was going to be very similar - I was dead wrong. This was such a great tour and totally different than Warner... More

My family and I got the worst tour guide ever, he had no idea what he was doing and he took us into all these weird buildings that had nothing to do with the tour. At one point he took us into this building where he forced us to climb 10 flights or so of stairs just to see someone... More

This is a 2Hours walking tour so prepare for the weather and achy legs. Our tour was after lunch and although the weather was perfect- sunny with cool air, it was so tiring. We were expecting to see celebrities but it was disappointing when the tour was basically pointing out to this building, that building, this studio, & that studio.... More

We really enjoyed this tour. It was a nice leisurely tour. We selected it because it was a nice mix of old Hollywood history, since MGM used to be located on the lot and because the lot produces a number of television shows. We got to see and actually walk around the set of "The Goldbergs." It was incredibly interesting... More

We did both the Warner Brothers and Sony tours. I felt like we saw and learned lots more in the WB one. Sony, for $40, seemed to be pretty much pointing to buildings and telling us what happened in them.

There are only 4 tours of major studios and this is one of the best. Parking is easy and free (unusual in LA) across the street from the studio. It is a walking tour of about 2 hours but the pace is slow and easy to navigate. You do not go into sound stages but you do get to see... More

We had a GoLA card and just did this because we were heading over that way. Glad we did. It's totally different to Warner Bros. We saw some stars which was a bonus. The 2 hour tour went so fast and small group. Didn't know anything before about this tour or hear of it but it's very interesting and I... More
