We had a wonderful tour. We were very lucky and experienced 3 different settings from "Under the Dome". The guide was funny and entertaining, he might even be our favorite part. Our group had 1 grandmother, 2 forty-five year olds, a fifteen year old and a ten year old and we all enjoyed ourselves.

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

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
