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

Paramount provides full day tours for a reasonable price. During the tour, visitors would be able to see numerous aspects of the studios. My favorite was the special effects department, as well as the sign shop. Around mid-way through the tour, Paramount will provide a lovely lunch with various foods for your selection. One of the other highlights is the... More

This was one of the most interesting things we did on our California tour. Our two guides were passionate and knowledgable about Paramount and there presention was excellent and very relaxed/friendly. The history of the studio is fascinating and the fact its a true working one makes all the difference. I cannot stand "staged" attractions for tourists - here you... More

We had a short window of time in Hollywood and chose to do the Paramount Studios Tour. Tour guide was good, but we weren't allowed to go inside any building and see any sets, very disappointing. We did see a street scene about to be filmed but were quickly rushed away. The New York and Boston exterior sets were cool... More

This is one of the most interesting things I have ever done while on a vacation out in California this past summer. I went on the tour on a Sunday, which was great because we got to see sound stages and other areas that might be off limits on a weekday. I believe the older you are the more interesting... More

A studio tour right in Hollywood. Small groups, lots of information -- even caught sight of a celebrity or two!

We did this tour on a Saturday and although we were told straight away we would probably not see anyone famous we got more opportunities to go into areas we wouldn't have during the week. We got to go into 2 sound stages and also into the main offices where the top directors and producers work. The guide was informative... More

We went to the Paramount Studio tour because it covered more of the older films that I enjoy. It was a great tour. Our tour guide was friendly and informative, always asking if we had questions (and able to answer them if we did). It was just shy of two hours and you have to make reservations in advance, but...
