Arrived by car for a mid-morning tour on a Friday. You are steered to the tour parking garage. It can be a bit confusing to find the tour parking ramps even with the signs. Once parked the elevator takes you to ticketing. We had bought ours online.
The tour starts with a short film narrated by Ellen. Then your tour guide takes you to the tram. Along the way you will still at prop museums and sound stages. You will see brief videos along the way and the tour guide will fill you in on studio history.
Once the tram ride is finished you go to the Friends and the Big Bang theory sets. They will take your pictures for later purchase. You are allowed to take your own. We finished with food at the end. There is also a studio store at this location. Then a tram will take you back to the garage. This tour is between 2-3 hours depending on how long you spend at the last interactive stop.
