We visited Universal and loved it so wondered what else was in the area. I read the reviews and opted for the 2 hour your as wasn't sure our 10 year old would've coped with longer. It was so so good! We did try to find the free parking on Bronson as suggested but it's only for 2 hours. Did... More

This was our first studio tour on July 21, 2016. My sister and I were always interested in visiting Paramount Studios since we were raised on watching old Hollywood nostalgia. We were especially hoping to see anything that remained of the Godfather movies. We picked the VIP tour and drove thru the iconic Paramount gates to find that the parking... More

A fantastic tour! Went on a Sunday morning, not expecting to see a lot of activity. Not only were we able to get in to several soundstages, we also ran into a big celebrity who stopped to talk to us.

My husband is passionate about the work that goes into making movies and television shows. I am not, but do enjoy learning. We booked the VIP tour to get a more in depth look at the studio, and it was well worth the money. We arrived about 30 minutes before our tour, and were offered a variety of beverages while... More

Our family consisted of 3 adults and 3 kids, so we ended up having a personal tour guide based on our group number. Ebony, our tour guide, had only been with Paramount Pictures only a few months, but she had SO much knowledge, and knew all the answers to our questions. Typically PP will not allow small children to ride... More

My wife and I attended the After Dark Tour of Paramount Studios and this was one of the best trips we made. Parking was allocated in a lot directly opposite the vehicle barrier entrance gates and was free of charge. On arriving, we were greeted with champagne and personalised entrance passes which become a bit of a souvenir too. Whilst... More

My wife and I took the 2 hour Paramount tour. Our knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide Andrew, took us through the history of the studio, pointing out where iconic film sequences had been filmed (Sunset Boulevard, Ten Commandments, the original Star Trek series, etc.). This is the right tour for film fans like us, but may not be as interesting... More

Took a tour in July, excellent day. Brittnay was fab - so enthusiastic, fun, and informative. It was as interesting learning her story as it was seeing the Studio. Highly recommend.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
