This tour is a must do if you are wanting to do all things Hollywood. We had a very good tour guide who had lots of side stories and they also have tablets to play short videos of shows and movies scenes that pertain to what they are showing you. We also got to walk through a couple of sets... More

We arrived earlier than planned as traffic was better than expected. The parking attendant wouldn't let us park yet as you can only arrive 30 minutes early so we drove around LA to kill some time while waiting. Finally we were able to park and then the office wouldn't allow us in because we were still 40 minutes early and... More

We were part of a large group in for the Rose Parade (300 or so) so Paramount gave our group exclusive access for the day. Tours are in oversized golf carts that take 6 or 7 at a time with your own guide. Great personalized service, every question answered and many photo stops. Some special areas were shown because no...

We booked the VIP tour online on Sunday 4 January for a tour on Monday morning 5 January, at a cost of nearly AUS$500. The confirmation did provide that the cost was non refundable and the reservation was non transferrable. Overnight my wife fell ill, so ill that we needed to call a Doctor to the Hotel where we were... More

This attraction isn't really worth the money you pay. Our guide was late, and wasn't very knowledgable about the site. She did pretty much the bare minimum she had to do, and didn't make the experience feel special. The Warner Bros tour is infinitely superior to this.

We were there for Christmas week so all the sets were available to tour. I found it fascinating how movies and TV shows were made. I really thought more scenes were made on location only to find out they are made in studios. We saw where they filmed the Mexico scene on NCIS LA, it was filmed in a small... More

This was a great tour with an incredibly knowledgable guide but we like the Warner Bros Studio tour better. They are BOTH worth doing. Cool to see several types of sets and we had a lot of fun in the prop storage area. The Brady Bunch tree was a highlight!

This is a pure look into a film studio without rides and other pedantic attractions. I won't spoil it for you with all the details but I will say in my educated opinion (32 years in the biz) that this tour is a legitimate bucket list item. Kudos for this treat....

My friend and I did a tour of the Paramount Studios last month. We did the standard 2 hour tour, not the longer 4 hour tour. The tour was good, we were 7 in our group and the guide used a golf cart to drive us all around the studio. The studio is fairly big and we were all over,... More

Reserve and pay for tickets online prior to arrival. You CANNOT just turn up and enter. This tour is worth the visit. Our Guide Connor provided a comprehensive, knowledgeable and humorous tour. Headsets are provided for the commentary and you are a transported around the premises in a cart, so it doesn’t involve too much walking. We took in outdoor... More
