Attended Sony Studio Tour. Best kept secret in Los Angeles if you really want to see how a movie studio works behind the scenes. There is no rides or tram, just a real studio lot..which you walk. Many Sony movies are made here like the new Ghost Busters movie. Many game shows are also taped here like Wheel of Fortune... More

We has a wonderful tour of Sony Studios that gave us a chance to see most of the sets, the Barbara Streisand acoustic theater as well as meet a few stars, the best being Adam Sandler. Would definitely recommend this for anyone who has time in LA.

When I booked the Sony Pictures studio tour at a cost of $42 per person, I was a bit leery, thinking it might be overpriced. However, once on the tour, it was well worth it. If you enjoy movies & TV, it is amazing all the things Sony and Columbia Pictures have accomplished. Going into the world famous sound room... More

We needed to find something to do to spend some time in West LA before dinner plans with friends. The day before I found this on Trip Advisor and got tickets. We arrived about 30 minutes beforehand but the show had already started. The lobby of the Sony office building was being "converted" into a mall for a filming of... More

Very nice Studio Tour. Lots of history on this lot and lots to see and explore. It is a walking tour so beware if it is hot or bad weather. Would have like to see more personality out of the guide like we had at the Warner Bros tour. Definitely did a good job but just a little on the... More

We took longer than the 2 hrs for picture taking. There were 46 of us in the tour. Caravan arranged our tour so I couldn't tell you what fee was paid. It was a very informative tour with even a restroom break. Spent extra time in the jeopardy set. Our guide Tyler was very good& informative. We did tip the... More

I was lucky enough to find a Go card for LA and got to go to this attraction and Universal Studios for $130 total. At first, it was hard to find the studio because the entrance is in the back of the building (or at least what I thought was the back). I was confused because they seemed to be... More

My sister and I went on the evening tour at 6pm on Thursday, July 21st. All and all the tour was very interesting and we moved rather quickly from one location to another. Near the end of the tour, (although we did not know this was the end) the tour group which consisted of all adults passed by a restroom.... More

The 2 hour tour was better than I anticipated. A nice easy walking tour around the studios of Sony. The tour allowed for you to walk the grounds of the studios, whilst having a few photo ops with some of the famous cars used in Sony films (ghostbusters ECTO-1, Breaking Bad van, Ricky Bobby's car) as well as also walking...

This was a free fun event that allowed me to see first hand how a television show is put together. We had a slight delay with the taping which allowed Vanna White to do a little W&A with the audience.
