I never write reviews but am compelled to do so today. This tour was a disappointment. Having been to the Warner tour I was expecting so much more to share my husband. The lobby is the best part of whole tour and you can see all that free without a ticket. You do not see anything on this tour except... More

I did this tour a couple of weeks ago whilst on holiday in LA. I had done the Paramount Studio tour 3 years ago on a previous trip and so I was really disappointed by the Sony tour. There was nothing wrong with the guide but we had to walk everywhere whereas at Paramount you are taken around on one... More

A great way to spend a couple of hours enjoying the sound stages and memorabilia of Sony pictures. The tour starts with a 20 minute film looking back at the history of Sony, you then get a guided tour of the studios. We did both this and the Warner Bros VIP tour and would highly recommend them both.

We had low expectations of this tour given the comparatively moderate price tag, but were very pleasantly surprised. If you park underneath the facility, valet parking is included, and before or after your your, if you are hungry do stop at the atrium cafe. The food is inspired by Wolfgang Puck and is definitely a cut above regular cafeteria offerings.... More

We have previously visited Warner brothers and paramount tours. This one is similar. Sam was our guide and he was very informative and funny. We saw the queen latifah studio, and jeopardy studio. We also were taken to the Barbara Streisand sound set. It is old and amazing to see. The tour takes approx two hours. You are moved along... More

We were in L.A. in mid-May and wanted to do a studio tour. We chose the Sony Studios because it has the most stages and is a working studio. Universal Studios was our first pick, but it seemed kind of cheesy. (You can catch the highlights on YouTube.) When we were there, they had just wrapped up Masters of Sex,... More

This was our first tour while visiting L.A on vacation. We booked our tickets on line just to make sure we were able to secure a spot. Parking is free but valet only. The Sony building is huge on the inside and there's lots of movie memorabilia everywhere. The tour is about 2 1/2 hours long and is a walking... More

Sony Pictures is located on the old MGM studio lots. Where Ester William's sound stages were. The Studio was completely revamped several years ago and now it is a terrific complex of buildings as well as sound stages. I like to get gelato, sit under a tree and just enjoy being there.Take the tour and then stroll around. Don't miss... More
