They have parking near the entrance for $15.00, they limit tour groups to 8 people. You see lots of movie studios, outside movie sets over a 2 hour period. BEST place to see the movie business.

It was really good - nice small groups, the staff KNOW their movie trivia and if you're a film buff it's about as close to heaven as you can get. Totally worth the price - I'd skip the VIP version of it because it's WAY over priced but you'll see tons of famous movie sets and you'll recognize a hundred... More

Visited with my wife and two children. Daughter aged 13yrs and Son aged 10yrs Only discovered its existence one week before our visit. We did the 2hr tour. Right from the second we arrived we were greeted warmly and the excitement really began for me and the rest of my family. The history of the studio is huge. They have... More

The tour is somewhat limited, but the guide on our tour was first rate. He was well prepared and he was very engaging. If you have to choose between the Paramount and Warner Brothers Tour... pick Paramount. If you schedule your tour in advance, you might be able to see where Doctor Phil parks his car. There is a parking... More

I have taken this tour before and it was great. However, this time I took my son and it was a joke. First I was booked with Bobby and he was so enthusiastic I was really looking forward to it. But then he had too many people so we had to move on to Sandy. She just rushed the whole... More

It was an okay tour, but definitely not worth the price. Half of our studio stops were at Nickelodeon sets, so those didn't interest us at all. And even though you went into the Dr. Phil set, all the lights were off, so you were given flash lights. The props stop was a joke, as I've been to better and... More

This tour allowed access to a few studios but most were off limits. Good to see behind the scenes but more actual sets would have been better.

I did not enjoy this tour which was exceptionally limited and dull. Having already been on the Warner Bros tour my expectations were not exceptionally high - I was not expecting to see actual movies being made or to see any stars. This is one of the most historic studios and still remains in its original Hollywood location but very... More

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.
