Took the tour of the location while in town visiting family. It was well worth the $12.00 admission and the guides were energetic and fun. It would have been nice to take a few photos outdoors on the lot. We understand not being able to photo inside the sound stages though. Only saw two sound stages which was a little... More

Loved this tour . The best tour I saw in Wilmington. Only open on sat and sun . Got to see and stand in sets for Under The Dome and new tv series being shot there. Tour Guides friendly and informative. If you are a movie or Tv Buff a must see.

I found this tour to be one of the most fun experiences I had while staying in Wilmington. Not only were my four tour guides informative and fun to listen to, but the experience itself was just beyond awesome. The tour costs $12 per person (a HUGE bargain considering similar tours at studios in California run a lot more than... More

By the time the tour started, there were about 50 people in attendance. Tickets and T-shirts are “Cash Only,” so come prepared. They divided us... More

An hour tour for $12 adult and $5 child was pretty limited. Lots of talking from the guides but little to look at. Got to see three sets from Under The Dome TV show which was pretty cool. However that was it. Two other studios were closed. Lasted a little over an hour. Need to add to the tour to... More

Great to see the movie industry in Wilmington - Under the Dome, Sleepy Hollow to Iron Man 3. Bring cash since they don't take any cards but worth the experience
