We 'stopped in' to Paramount on a Thursday without making prior reservations and were pleased to make it into the 1:30 p.m. tour that afternoon. Though the $52 pp ticket price was a bit higher than expected, it was well worth it once inside. We were informed it would be a 2 hr. tour, but it turned into a 3... More

Don't get there too much ahead of your scheduled tour or they can't let you in. However, you can kill time before hand by eating at Lucy's, a mexican restaurant across the street with movie star connections. We've lived in California virtually all our lives but never taken a studio tour until this one. Its not very touristy or gimmicky... More

We decided at the last minute for a studio tour and Paramount had tickets. This was perfect for us because it is run by golf cart, not walking. We needed a tour that minimized physical exercise. Our guide was very good. She kept us interested and informed. An excellent overview of what they did and how they did it. Little... More

Interesting tour for anyone interested in movie making / productions / how its done / behind the scenes etc. Tour is approx an hour & 1/2. We enjoyed it. The golf buggy transport aspect makes it easy. Worth doing once if you are undecided imo

I've lived in Los Angeles all my life but never really have done the "touristy" things. I had some family visiting from out of town a couple weeks ago and they really wanted to check out this tour, so I just sort of went along and didn't really know what to expect. The tour is a historical one and a... More

I will admit that I am a movie history buff. If you share the same passion this is the tour for you. The tour is informative, historical and entertaining. The tours are conducted on foot and on large golf carts. This intimate small group setting adds to the experience and provides the opportunity to ask questions. Our guide Paulina was... More

The guide Helen gave a us a great little tour of the studios. It is very pricey, but it's cool to learn about aspects of how films are made. If you are going to embrace a touristy Hollywood visit, do the tour.

For those of you who want to shy away from the other tour that starts with a U in the LA area, the Paramount Studios Tour is a hidden gem. My tour guide was very engaging - especially for a Saturday morning at 930! Knew the answers to every question asked and shared a lot of her own experiences working... More

The tour guide was good and we went in a small group of eight total, which made it more personal. We stopped at several indoor and outdoor settings/studios and learned about old and new shows/movies/actors at Paramount. Tour was a bit pricey ($52) per person for just driving around the lot and looking around. Probably would not do again. It... More

Booked our tickets online a week in advance. The studio was easy to find and parking is in a lot across the street from the entrance. Visit is a combination of short tram rides around the various buildings and walking. Our guide, Maria, was knowledgeable, pleasant and very enthusiastic about her job, which made us enjoy the visit more. I... More
