Having now taken tours of all the major studios (Warner Bros., Paramount, Sony, and Universal), I can say that this tour is tied as my favourite, alongside the Warner Bros. tour. One big difference is the tour group size. While the Warner Bros. tour is with 15 people, the Paramount tour only had 4, which gives you a much more... More

My friend and I took the After Dark seasonal tour that included Hollywood Forever cemetery last night. Our tour guide Kevin was amazing. Kevin was a wealth of knowledge on the studio and made the tour a ton of fun. He even took me onto the set of Grace and Frankie cause he knew I was a fan. How cool... More

My husband and I took a morning tour. Our guide was Cody Dobie. We both agreed that he was excellent and very knowledgeable. Told us lots of interesting facts. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

At $178 I was a bit skeptical if this tour would deliver as well as Warner Brothers. I liked the way our guide could tell you about a location and then show film clips where the location was used. That was a plus. The guides enthusiasm and love for movies shined. It was nice to be able to talk to... More

Loved it , plot was beautiful and tour guide very informative , told some interesting stories about older films that I was really into , the only thing being from the UK I was not familiar with any of the TVs shows filmed here but things have changed and all the studios in LA are mainly for TV now .

This tour has so much potential, but our experience was very, very disappointing. Obviously a tour of a working studios has limitations for reasons of privacy, confidentiality and security, but there is still tremendous scope for an exciting, informative and enchanting experience. There is no doubt that the studios and the lots are evocative and the history is resonant -... More

I did the VIP tour with Kevin. It was well worth the 178 dollars. The group was small and intimate. Kevin the tour guide was fairly new however he is a complete natural and engaging. Paramount you have out done yourselves with regards to the content of your VIP tour. It was educational, inspiring and fun. I had spent two... More

Three friends and I did the VIP tour at Paramount Studios. It's easy to register for the tour online and there is parking just across the street. We visited the studio in a golf cart which was great because we covered quite a bit of territory. We viewed all sorts of memorabilia, went into Dr. Phil's studio, and got to... More

A great place to visit if you're in Hollywood as a tourist that loves movies. Lots of good nuggets of trivia from the tour guide and the chance to walk into a number of famous sets.

We had a great time and did it as VIP's. It costs a little extra but you get very small groups plus you get lunch! What a great experience! Our tour guide was Chris and he's the best!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
