    George was our tour guide for the day and he played music that matched the different spots on the tour even a couple of songs by Olivia Newton John who just passed away. Also he looked up where her star was ahead of our stop at the walk of fame. The tour has plenty of water which was nice on a hot day. Started at Santa Monica pier, then to Venice beach, then to rodeo drive and Beverly Hills, farmers market to eat lunch (longer time here..we ate at Phil’s), then to the Griffith observatory and view of the Hollywood sign and last stop was walk of fame on Hollywood boulevard. He gives you 30-45 minutes at each stop.

    Griffith observatory was open. To go in you need COVID vaccination card and a mask. If you don’t have that you can still walk around the side and see the sights of LA.

    After the tour we walked on the third street promenade which have shops and restaurants and Tesla store.

    The WB studio tour was very well designed, my husband and I had a very fun experience. Our tour guide provide fun pieces of history and re-enactments of clips of movies and shows that were filmed at each of the locations we visited to help us create visuals of the settings we were looking at. All WB staff were professional and courteous throughout our tour. The guided tour we picked was 2 hours long, then we got dropped off at stage 48 where we got lunch and explored a self guided exhibit of popular shows such as friends and Big Bang theory sets, costumes, and photo ops. Then we got shuttled back to the main lobby for another exhibit of DC and harry potter exhibits and photo ops. During the self guided portions you can spend a little more time there, especially if there are lots of people and having to wait for all the photo ops. We spent about another 2 hours on the self-guided portions since we skipped some of the photo ops. So altogether, we spent about approximately 5 hours there (including lunch and shopping in the WB store).

    We attended their new studio plus tour which included a lunch at the central perk café, which was great because our lunch was part of the tour price and we didn't have to worry lunch. It also includes the props warehouse, this was eye opening to see the variety and breadth of props in this warehouse.

    The tour plus sell out fairly quickly, especially during the summer so purchase tickets online. Parking was really easy, because there are signs for the studio tour when you get near the neighborhood of the warner bros lot, but the navigation directions on gps will get you there also. Parking in the lot is $15, but the elevators from the parking lot take you directly into the lobby of the tours.

    We had a really great experience, and would consider another tour in the future.

    Amazing time at Universal. The rides are great and there is a great variety of them, there is something for everyone. The food on offer was well priced for where you were, the only down side was the cost of the express ticket. We didn’t originally have them but after seeing that the queue times were upwards of 60 minutes, we took the plunge and bought them. With the express tickets you jump to the front and can get on every ride rather than only being able to make a few rides because the wait is so long. I highly recommend these tickets if you can, but always buy them in advanced because they cost the world if you buy them in the park.the shows were brilliant too! If you can see them all, I highly recommend!

    Loved the tour today! The tour guide was excellent! Highly recommend for someone who has never been to LA. Hollywood sign, Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, stars homes. I couldn’t ask for anything more! Air conditioning and water provided. Also bathroom breaks along the way! Thanks for making this a great trip!

    This tour was perfect for seeing all the LA/Hollywood/Beverly Hills, etc sites without having to figure it out for yourself. Our tour guide, Talibe, was fun, efficient, patient and a wealth of information! Also, we really liked that it's a small group (12 on our tour). Highly recommend!

    We came for Harry Potter World and enjoyed our quick trip. We enjoyed the studio tour and the Minions ride.

    We didn’t get the express pass because it would have cost over $600 additional for the four of us and we’ve been to Universal in Florida.

    We spent a half day in the park and waited in line for the Hogwarts ride, Flight of the Hippogriff, and Minions. The studio tour was a lot of fun too!

    The only disappointing moment was the Hogwarts ride pausing in the middle - when it the ride came back on the screen did not and we missed the best part of the ride, the Quidditch!

    If you’re deciding where to stay, consider a Universal hotel, it comes with the express pass, which makes the hotel cost worth it!

    Our tour guide was so funny and knowledgeable. He even recognized Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Keides driving by us in the Hollywood Hills. I would recommend this tour for any movie lovers and star lovers. Fun and comfortable!

    Booked this, on the strength of what we’d seen, on Tripadvisor, and we’re really pleased we did. We used the Hollywood pick-up option and were taken to Santa Monica, where we joined our group, for the day, and our driver/guide, John.
    There was a good balance of being on the move - seeing the sights/hearing all about them and having time to explore for yourself, with guidance about what else there was to see, in the area, as well as clear maps/time instructions, to ensure everyone was back at the minibus, when they needed to be.
    Just to note, if you want to go into Griffith Park Observatory, at the moment, you need to wear a mask, as well as having proof of your COVID vaccination and photo ID.

    This was a great tour for a first timer to LA. The tour hit up some key spots that I was interested in, Santa Monica Pier and the Griffith Observatory. Our tour guide/driver Jeff was awesome, very friendly and knowledgeable, he kept us all entertained with his jokes and playlist. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that would like to see a little bit of everything that LA has to offer.

    About 6 hour-long guided tour including rides and real food lunch, worthwhile and fun, every minute and every cent.
    The good thing is we got special access to popular rides, including those in Harry Potter Wizarding World, PET the newest ride.
    This is different from express line because our guide brought us right directly to the ride and passed the express line.
    The weather while we were visiting was hot and we really appreciated that we dont have to be in a long line otherwise we probably could only do a few rides on our visit due to dehydration and time limitation. Our guide, Roxy were very helpful. Plus, we had plenty of time for lunch, included, with real food, like international buffet in a hotel.

    We, a family of 2 adults, 16 and 8 year-old-kids, with limited time in Los Angeles area, about 4 days and we only wanted to spend a day at Universal Studios, so this was the best investment for the best day for our kids.
