Reserve and pay for tickets online prior to arrival. You CANNOT just turn up and enter. This tour is worth the visit. Our Guide Connor provided a comprehensive, knowledgeable and humorous tour. Headsets are provided for the commentary and you are a transported around the premises in a cart, so it doesn’t involve too much walking. We took in outdoor... More

Being a big Star Trek fan it was awesome to see where the shows and movies were filmed. Our tour guide had a wealth of knowledge about the history of the property. I dislike museums but a tour like this one was great. Worth the $50 if you like this kind of stuff.

The only movie studio left in hollywood. Great place to take pictures out front. We went on a Saturday which meant we didn't see any stars, but we were able to go to all the sets because they weren't filming everything. Our guide was great. I'd recommend this tour

We did the VIP tour. It was great to get such detailed info in a relaxed way. The stories, facts and personal anecdotes all gave a real feel to the inner workings and history of the studio. Really appreciated the insight into the technical aspects of film production. A big round of applause to our guide, India.

When it comes to guided tours I’m a firm believer that your experience is directly proportionate with your tour guides disposition and overall knowledge. Luckily our tour guide Kristina was awesome. We booked a last minute VIP tour the night before. It was a small group with only 4 of us which made it even more intimate . Parking was... More

Lived in CA for 25 years and always wanted to do a tourist studio tour. Read a lot of reviews and booked Paramount. Arrive early to allow for traffic, parking and checking in. The grounds are beautiful and our guide was so informative, she actually loved her job and it showed. We went on a Monday-great day, a lot of... More

We took our Girl Scouts on a tour, and it was awesome! Leon was very informative, fun and knew what he was doing. Glee was filming that day along with NCIS, and Leon was able to get us close to the filming of NCIS, and it was amazing. We will definitely being doing this tour again! Thank you Leon Tracie

This was a ride around the outside of the Buildings making up paramount Studios. The studios are now mainly used by independent companies who don't allow you on their sets.....yes there were some interesting historical facts but I could have accessed those off the Internet...

I was very excited to go and experience this tour. HOWEVER word to the wise-if you are visiting the studio, it is a little confusing as to where you enter. There are several gates, there is a dedicated parking garage and then you have to walk a few blocks to the entrance. Once you actually find the correct entrance, you... More

This tour combines golf cart riding and walking. If you want to spot celebrities you should definitely stop by during the week- if you want to see inside more buildings then you should come on the weekend when the lots are quieter. I learned some interesting facts and enjoyed my couple of hours in Hollywood. Definitely worth a couple of... More
