Too much to rave about. First off though, we were dazzled by our guide, forget his name, but no robot, someone who clearly loves his job. I got the feeling they don't burn out their guides too much, packing in millions of tours a week. The guy was fresh and loved people asking questions. OMG the Barbra Streisand Sound Studio... More

Sony Studios also owns Columbia Pictures, so there were many interesting things to see and hear about. Wheel of Fortune is filmed there and we got to see some of the memorabilia. The guide was knowledgeable on the history of the studio and told us some fun facts. It was enjoyable, but not as good as some other studio tours... More

Our tour guide, Aaron, was entertaining and informative. It was the highlight of our visit to LA :) I would definitely recommend this tour over other studio tours, partly because of the price, but also because of the history of the lot (MGM used to own the studio).

O passeio é à pé, então pode ficar meio quente. Especialmente porque não podemos entrar em quase nenhum set, apenas em 3 ou 4 (nenhuma foto é permitida). Passamos 2 horas passeando pelo lado de fora de vários sets com uma guia que, infelizmente, não era tão animada (era gentil, mas extremamente sem vontade de estar ali -Erin-). Honestamente, melhor...

I'm realizing based on our experiences and other reviews that the studio tours really depend on the tour guide. We had an amazing guide at Sony and it was our favorite tour of the 3 we did. It was also the least expensive and had free parking, big bonus! "Masters of Sex" was filming in the lobby when we arrived,... More

Excellent studio tour! Parking is across the street in an underground facility. It's free valet parking, but tipping is always a kind gesture. Brief movie introduces guests to the history of the studio lot (originally MGM). You cross the street and enter through the gates to begin the walking tour which on my visit included the entry way to the... More

We really enjoyed the tour, Our Guide was very knowledgeable and personable. The tour was very in-depth. We really enjoyed the visit to the sets and the Barbara Streisand Recording Studio.

We have been to a couple of other studio tours. Sony is different. It is a walking tour instead of sitting in golf carts. It was fun. You see many studio and memorabilia from shows like Breaking Bad. See where Jeopardy and The Goldbergs and filmed. For $40 dollars, it was worth the two hours

We had a great time on the Sony Pictures Studio tour. Very exciting to hear the history of the lot and the amazing pictures that have been shot there. Good value at $40 per person at the time of tour.

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
