We were concerned about the tour based on the negative reviews, however, we were pleasantly surprised that the tour was enjoyable and informative. Our family has done the Universal Studios and Warner Brothers – this tour has good value in its own merit and is not just a tour of building exteriors. This is a two hour walking tour. It... More

We had nothing to do last week so we decided to take the Sony tour. We arrived in the expansive lobby full of memorabilia, and after a quick photo and greeting from Aaron,we were escorted into the theater. We were split into 2 groups after the informative movie on the history of the studio lot. Our group was fortunate to... More

My 12 year old daughter and husband wanted to do the 2 most popular studio tours while visiting LA, while I only wanted to do Warner Bros since the reviews for that tour seemed more favorable. I am glad they pushed me toward Sony because I found it more educational and authentic, as well as worth the price you pay... More

$40/ per person and no access to a single sound stage!!!! At least our guide, Erin, was a delight. Did see an ADR studio were actors rerecord dialogue - on the names that have been in that room at that mike. Also saw the big recording studio where the big boys, Williams, Zimmer, Steiner, Horner, etc have conducted, too cool... More

After hearing what others had to say, we weren't expecting much from this tour but did it anyway as it was included in our GO LA cards. We are so glad we did. Our tour guide was hilarious and knew everything there was to know about movie studios. Sony may be slightly smaller than some of the other studios but... More

Secondly, free photo of the group to commemorate the visit ! Thirdly, I tour guide that knows their stuff, and was very enthusiastic. We saw sound stages, the... More

This tour was our third after doing Universal and Warner. I found this very informative and more detailed with a very enthusiastic guide. We saw inside the Barbra Streisand Sound Studio which I found fascinating with so much history. There were photo opportunities by the cars from Ghostbusters and Breaking Bad, and inside the Jeopardy set. The other set we... More

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
