This is one of the most interesting things I have ever done while on a vacation out in California this past summer. I went on the tour on a Sunday, which was great because we got to see sound stages and other areas that might be off limits on a weekday. I believe the older you are the more interesting... More

A studio tour right in Hollywood. Small groups, lots of information -- even caught sight of a celebrity or two!

We did this tour on a Saturday and although we were told straight away we would probably not see anyone famous we got more opportunities to go into areas we wouldn't have during the week. We got to go into 2 sound stages and also into the main offices where the top directors and producers work. The guide was informative... More

We went to the Paramount Studio tour because it covered more of the older films that I enjoy. It was a great tour. Our tour guide was friendly and informative, always asking if we had questions (and able to answer them if we did). It was just shy of two hours and you have to make reservations in advance, but...

Being a huge Rizzoli & Isles fan, I had to take a tour of Paramount. I took the VIP tour and was lucky enough to spot a few actresses! Including Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. The guides (I've been there twice) are really good, they know what they're doing. The tour included photoshoot at the fountain, history, all the famous... More

I didn't know what the studio tour should look like but I expected much more than just empty television shows studios. We didn't see practically anything expect several identical empty studios and studio souvenir store. May be because it was the Labor Day? I didn't like it, kids didn't like it... we expected something different from the tour to the... More

July of 2014: My daughter, 16, my niece, 14, and I took the guided tour (not the VIP). Our guide was very good and knew a lot about TV shows and movies. He offered information about filming that didn't take place at Paramount, as well as films that were Paramount, when asked questions about a particular show or movie. My... More

I've done the Universal Studios Tour twice and the Warner Brothers Tour; it seemed like this was the time for Paramount. Paramount Studios does have something the other studios don't have: old Hollywood history. Be aware that this was not the VIP tour (significantly more expensive). The tour did focus a lot on the history, but I am not from... More
