If you're staying at this end of town and have limited time and really want to do a studio tour then Sony is OK. Otherwise drop this studio to the bottom of your priority list. Warner Brothers and Paramount both provide a more in-depth and entertaining studio tour. Sony has the ability to do a far better job than they... More

Kind of interesting, but they have you watch some trailers for their upcoming movies, and they take you onto the sets of two unpopular, unknown TV shows. Didn't get to see much else except for the parking lots. The tour ends at the gift shop, of course. The tour guide was entertaining enough, but the tour itself is very lackluster.... More

Fabulous tour of studios and sets. Guide was very informative . Fun, interesting information from History behind the sound studio to special sound effects. Would do it again. Sony Shop has many collectibles...albeit a bit overpriced.

We went to Sony studios for the back stage tour. It was great fun. We arranged for our group of 57 people to go backstage. We had two young boys with us 5 & 7 and they had to wait in the lobby for us to return as they don't allow anyone under 12 on the tour. We did get... More

Very interesting 2 hour tour; got to see a working set and also a lot of Hollywood memorabilia. This is a relatively inexpensive movie tour and there's a lot of walking involved.

Travelled for over an hour and a half via public transport to visit the studios - and it really was a waste of our time on the final day. We had Go LA cards, but unlike Warner Bros, I couldn't book via email prior to arrival, so had to call when I arrived in LA (expenses from a UK mobile).... More

This was soooo boring and you walked everywhere. The highlight of our tour was "The Goldburgs" set. No one in our tour had ever seen it, so we were not impressed. Tour guy said "shi*" a lot. Not professional at all. Save your money and just look at the lobby displays, that's where you see the best stuff. Basically it's... More

All the studios had mixed reviews but this was closest on our path so we decided to try it. I believe the tour guide can make or break the tour and we had the misfortune of getting Sam. He could have gotten us excited about the industry or the process or even the upcoming productions, but none of that happened.... More

Have to say that this tour was leaps and bounds ahead of another studio tour that we did. Our guide Vince was very knowledgeable, had a great personality, and made sure everyone got to see as much as possible. The tour also gives everyone a FREE photograph of themselves against the green screen (another studio charges $16+) and a discount... More
