Paramount Pictures offers the least expensive possibility to do a studio tour in Hollywood. Plus, our travel guide mentioned this studio in particular. That's why we decided to do a studio tour, here. To be honest, I liked our guide, the golf car which carried us around the property and the whole "design" of the tour, yet, the content of... More

Worth taking the tour. You gain so many fun facts about the history and current shows about Paramount's studios. We had an amazing tour guide unfortunately I forgot her name.

Did this last night with Ryan as our tour guide. One word- awesome. He knew his stuff and it showed. We did so much in the time it took to do the tour but the time just flew! We were greeted with champagne on arrival as well as parking which is a bonus, we stopped for intermission and they gave... More

If you are in the area, it's worth seeing once in your life if you care about the background info of your favorite movies. The tour guide was informative and explained the history of the Studio as well as the many movies that were created there.

My 12 year old Son and I visited and loved it They use management interns as guides so you really get motivated, knowledgeable, and professional guides. No question went unanswered. Well worth it!

We had an excellent experience. The tour groups are a maximum of 7--the number of people that fit on a large golf cart. Even with the small group the tour guide handed out headsets so we could hear her even when she spoke quietly while on a set. We were there on a Sunday so there were no workers (or... More

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

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.
