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

We went on this tour and it was a lot of fun. I have to say, it's strictly walking, so keep that in mind. We were able to see the set of Friends, Wheel Of Fortune, Jeopardy, The Goldbergs, & Gilmore Girls - it was very cool! We enjoyed this tour a lot and at the end they give you... More

The tour was very informative, we all (with 2 kids 10 and 14) enjoyed it very much. The 2 hours went very fast. Visited TV show sets, Jeopardy set, many studios. Pre-tour at the SONY headquarters with many movies' artifacts was very interesting

So there were 4 Major Studios to choose from with only being able to see 1 this trip, so we booked the cheapest and rated least popular in the greater Los Angeles area. Mind you this was an MGM Studio lot and is now housed with Tri-star, Columbia, Happy Madison productions among more. We get there an hour before the... More
