We were part of a live audience during the recording of Instant Mum - definitely a great experience. It was so interesting to see how it's all done and we would have gone to more recordings but the age limit is 18+ for most shows. Tickets are free!

We were here in 1989 when this was an "active major" movie studio. We were able to walk onto live sets, such as Star Trek, Hunt for Red October, etc. Saw some celebrities on site working. Was then very cool ! This time no active movie sets on site, in large part due to high CA taxes causing filming to... More

This is a must-see for any movie and/or TV buffs! Our tour started with our fabulous guide Raylynn stopping by a small kiosk to show us photographs from some popular movies and TV shows. Instantly, I started thinking that we would only get to see everything from afar and not be able to get up close with anything. I was... More

The Paramount Tour is a must do when in Los Angeles! Loved hearing about all the Hollywood stars from back in the day and the new stars too! Even saw Dr. Phil's son walking around! You never know who you might run into!

As a first exposure to the Hollywood scene in LA - loved this tour of Paramount Studios. Our tour guide, Kate, was very informative, outgoing, and was genuinely concerned that we got the most out of our tour! Being on a Sunday - we were able to get on a set of a new show coming out - Marry Me.... More

Booked the four hour VIP tour with lunch for our first full day in LA. We had good expectations of this trip and were not disappointed with the experience. When we arrived lots of tours were starting so were grouped together in a small group of 6 people with our tour guide Amber. You could tell she enjoys her job,... More

Our first day in L.A, my partner and I had decided we'd go around visiting both Paramount and Warner Bros studios. For this tour, our first of the day, we had Danny (...who on that day was Brian), an enthusiastic fellow who seemed to love his job. Danny asked us what shows we liked and then we all hopped into...

I think we can all agree that, alongside root canals during earthquakes, there are few things in life more excruciating than a guided tour that goes on and on with no changes of pace, revealing no bits of knowledge or witticisms from the guide themselves. And, if you're anything like me, and I know I am, sometimes you hesitate before... More

I visited Paramount studios with my husband, to be honest I only went because he wanted to go, I guessed it would be slightly boring, however I was pleasantly surprised! Our tour guide was lovely and answered every question she was asked, she was sweet and friendly and you could tell she was passionate about film making and not just... More
