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

Let me start by saying that I am a huge movie buff, and this was my second movie studio tour - my first being Warner Brothers last year which was fantastic! - and I was kind of let down by this experience. There are a couple reasons why this tour didn't wow me. First off, it felt like it was... More

Loved the props exhibition, the costumes and the cool guides. I got also a free movie poster to take with me. Very good spent day.

This is not like the other studio tours, this is just a working movie studio, that happens to let people tour around. We went on a Sunday morning, so there were only 4 in our group. The guide knew an incredible amount about the workings of the studio, and it's history. For movie fans, this is essential.

This was the 3rd of the 3 tours that we did in 2 week holiday, not in our opinion the best, although still worth the visit, this is an audio tour, so you get headphones to wear, although you don't actually need them as my husband found out as his kept dropping out during the tour, our tour guide wasn't...

Much better than another studio tour that shall remain nameless ( but the initials are WB.) They take you into the the hubbub of the studio on an old and squeaky golf cart and show the ins and outs of the studio. Best of all we saw stars!!!! Jane Fonda walking her dog!!!! One of the guys from Glee and... More

This was an excellent tour. Paramount is the only working studio in Hollywood. Others have moved out of this city. Michael was our guide. He was full of interesting stories and took his time in moving us around the lot. You ride in a golf cart. Because it was Saturday, we were able to go inside several stage buildings to... More
