This is a good escorted trip around a working studio. The tour guides are knowledgeable and interested in what they do (failed actors?). Most people I've spoken to think of... read more

This is a good escorted trip around a working studio. The tour guides are knowledgeable and interested in what they do (failed actors?). Most people I've spoken to think of these tours as film studio tours however whilst some films have been made at the location its predominately a TV show studio. This is great for US people who may... More

We had a fantastic tour guide Conor. This guy really knew his stuff and shared all the history of the park in great detail. There was nothing we asked that he didn't know the answer to. Fantastic Tour Guide, he will go far. And a total asset to Paramount Studios. The tour gave us an opportunity to see the sets... More

First of all, let me say, you cannot just turn up and book a tour. You have to do it over the Internet or maybe via a travel/tour agent. Having said that, the whole experience is superb. My fondest memory of my last tour around the lots was watching tiny humming birds hover among the lovely flowers at the entrance.... More

John from New Jersey was our tour guide today. He will go far in the paramount system. He loves his job and it shows. John has an enthusiasm and a reverence for the studio that translates with the information he shares as a tour guide.

On our first day staying in LA, my husband had booked our family (including 2 teenage girls) to do the VIP experience at Paramount Studios. After reading all the reviews, we were so very excited to begin this tour. From the moment we met our tour guide Carisa, we knew this was going to be a fun tour. Her bubbly... More

This tour was fantastic! We got complimentary parking, champagne, popcorn, candy, a souvenir photo and an incredible tour!! We learned the history of Paramount, went into an old theatre, touched old film, saw costumes and oscars! I walked away feeling like not only did I learn how movies are made, but that I truly explored a piece of Hollywood history.... More

The tour was amazing! It was so cool to see how the things we watch are created. Nicole, our tour guide, knew so much and was so much fun. She showed us inside Dr. Phils and the Doctors studios and showed us many cool things about the film industry. Highly recommend this to people who are looking for something fun... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
