We took the two hour tour on the weekend, and because they weren't filming we were able to go into two TV sets which was fun. During the week I guess it is harder to get on to the sets as they are filming then. Our tour guide, Mike, was great and so knowledgable. Loved how he showed us clips... More

We had an enthusiastic guide, Kate, who was fab once we had got over her over the top positiveness to everything! A really nice and kind person. It was a really good tour, a real working place, saw the theatre and sat in the amazing seats, buildings are old and kept in top top condition. Ended in a props storage... More

Went on a 4 hour VIP tour with tour guide Billy. Escorted all over the studio and learned so much history and science in the process. He was extremely knowledgeable about the filmmaking process and every other aspects of the industry. The archive vaults and behind the scene stories of the actors were especially intriguing. There were several active filming... More

Visiting Paramount Studios was the highlight of our time in Hollywood. This is a real working studio, which is both good and bad! The good part is that you really learn a lot about how a studio is run and some of the tricks and set ups they use while producing movies. The bad part is they never let you... More

Took the VIP tour with the family. Difficult to know if the extra cost is worth it but we all thought the tour was excellent. Seven on our tour inc our family of four. Low key approach, guide v informative,pace seemed a little slow to start but appreciated that in due course given this lasts five hours. Susie, our guide,... More

We will never forget this experience. I had two teenaged boys with me and we can't stop talking about it. We took the most expensive tour and it was worth every penny!!! The success of our day must be attributed to our delightful guide, Amber. She was full of knowledge and generosity. We were on a golf cart, saw many... More

After experiencing the long lines and jam packed tram cars of the renowned Universal Studios; the Paramount Studios tour was much more to our liking. Each group of about 8 people are chauffeured around the back lots of Paramount by their own personal guide. Our guide was Katie and she had such a passion for the studio and in-depth knowledge...

The Paramount tour is highly recommended although there are less familar sets than the Warner Brothers Tour. Most of the current shows being filmed are not shown in England which was unfortunate but it was still very interesting how each was made. You will be in a group of about 8 people for the tour which gives a very personal... More

We had a fantastic tour led by Maria at Paramount Studios on August 5, 2014. She was professional, energetic, informative and held everyone's interest 'till the last minute. The walking/driving combo was so enjoyable retracing steps of famous celebrities, props, sets, original buildings, dressing rooms, offices, and more. Maria used iPad visuals to enlighten us along the way which really... More

I can only say that I thought this tour was outstanding. I haven't been on the Warner Bros tour so can't make a comparison. I would say this tour is probably more suitable to adults and it's true I didn't know some of the shows mentioned. However, what is there not to enjoy on this tour. From the outset the... More
