We had a great time at Paramount. It was perfect for me and my 13 year old daughter- some of our favorite shows, like Glee. Stephanie was our tour guide and she was AWESOME! She started the tour by asking us some of our favorite shows and movies and then made sure to show us the places from those shows.... More

We had a tour guide for our family of 5. We liked having the private nature of the tour - did not even request it. It probably depends on the size of the group and the numbers of tours they provide. Learned about the history of the studio and the films and tv shows that are filmed on location. We... More

The VIP tour is basically a two hour tour that has been stretched to fill in four hours including a buffet lunch. Whilst it is interesting to drive around, it would have been nice to see a lot more. We were asked what we were interested in so the tour could be customised, however the only studio we got to... More

If you get a good tour guide, the visit is a most when in LA. Ensure to take a visit timing that won't place you in the LA traffic before and after. (0700-0900 and 1600-1900).

Shannon our guide was super - finding out what her group were interested in and tailoring the VIP tour accordingly. We covered both the old history and the recent history and she made it interesting for all 6 of us - from retired people to the one teenager. Visited many behind the scenes areas like the archive and lighting, paint... More

My 16 year old son and I went there for Spring Break and enjoyed the trip. We went to Warner Brother's VIP tour earlier that day and I must say the WB Tour was much better. The Paramount tour seemed like an afterthought for the studio. When we got there, we went to the gate along with all of the... More

Trying a different genre this time and really enjoyed the tour! Went with the 2 hour tour and had Nate as our tour guide and he was great. What's nice about this tour is it only takes on 7 people plus the tour operator at a time so no crowds. It was a tram ride along the studio lots but... More

This is a review of the shorter, 2-hour tour. I picked that tour after reading reviews and since I'm not sure that the family members I dragged along have quite the same interest in movies that I do. That, and the difference in price between the shorter tour and the VIP tour is, shall we say, steep (over $100 difference!).... More

I was very impressed with all of the historical information that Michelle had given us on tour. The grounds were impeccable! I loved how all of the sound stages had the history of who filmed in that stage. We had a small group of 6 friends which made it more fun. Highly recommend it!

Our family of 4 and my sister's family of 4 did the VIP tour and had a fantastic time! There is so much to see and learn and from the moment you begin, you truly feel like a VIP. Our tour guide, Shannon, made sure to learn our names and find out what it was we were all looking to... More
