Visiting Paramount Studios was the highlight of our time in Hollywood. This is a real working studio, which is both good and bad! The good part is that you really learn a lot about how a studio is run and some of the tricks and set ups they use while producing movies. The bad part is they never let you... More

Took the VIP tour with the family. Difficult to know if the extra cost is worth it but we all thought the tour was excellent. Seven on our tour inc our family of four. Low key approach, guide v informative,pace seemed a little slow to start but appreciated that in due course given this lasts five hours. Susie, our guide,... More

We will never forget this experience. I had two teenaged boys with me and we can't stop talking about it. We took the most expensive tour and it was worth every penny!!! The success of our day must be attributed to our delightful guide, Amber. She was full of knowledge and generosity. We were on a golf cart, saw many... More

After experiencing the long lines and jam packed tram cars of the renowned Universal Studios; the Paramount Studios tour was much more to our liking. Each group of about 8 people are chauffeured around the back lots of Paramount by their own personal guide. Our guide was Katie and she had such a passion for the studio and in-depth knowledge...

The Paramount tour is highly recommended although there are less familar sets than the Warner Brothers Tour. Most of the current shows being filmed are not shown in England which was unfortunate but it was still very interesting how each was made. You will be in a group of about 8 people for the tour which gives a very personal... More

We had a fantastic tour led by Maria at Paramount Studios on August 5, 2014. She was professional, energetic, informative and held everyone's interest 'till the last minute. The walking/driving combo was so enjoyable retracing steps of famous celebrities, props, sets, original buildings, dressing rooms, offices, and more. Maria used iPad visuals to enlighten us along the way which really... More

I can only say that I thought this tour was outstanding. I haven't been on the Warner Bros tour so can't make a comparison. I would say this tour is probably more suitable to adults and it's true I didn't know some of the shows mentioned. However, what is there not to enjoy on this tour. From the outset the... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was a little hesitant about booking the tour, but I decided to spend the extra money and book the VIP tour. WOW! Was I glad I did!! This was the best tour and attraction I've ever attended in LA! Our tour guide John McDaniels was excellent! He truly made us feel like VIP's.... More

This was a fun way to see some behind the sciences stuff with a knowledgable guide (who clearly loves the movies and t.v.). The combination of some walking and some golf cart riding was a nice way to spend 2 hours. We got to see some really great sites (who knew they filmed the Red Sea parting in the 10... More

This is most defiantly the best studio tour available in LA. The staff are so knowledgable and willing To help with any questions you have. My tour guide (jake) was very friendly and took photos when I required them. You get to walk around sets and streets and is defiantly better on weekends when filming isn't takin place. A++
