About a month ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the studio and taking the 2 hour tour. Our guide, Nina was very informative and a real pleasure throughout the tour. She really went out of her way to get to know everyone on the tour and show us where all of our favorite films were shot. My daughter (age 16) loved seeing all of the "behind the scenes" aspects of filmmaking going on around the lot. She even saw some Glee actors walking back to their trailers from the set! Unfortunately, we weren't allowed inside the Glee sound stages, but Nina made up for it with her enthusiasm and really trying her best to show us every inch of the Paramount lot.
My daughter was expecting to see more celebrities walking around. I enjoyed the history of the oldest studio in Hollywood. At the beginning of the tour you are given a headset to hear the guide better. It was a great addition to the tour and made a world of difference.
Our guide told us some great stories that have happened to her while she's been at Paramount. I honestly feel that the tour guide makes a world of difference on making your tour THAT much better.
Unfortunately, there were 8 of us crammed on a cart. I feel it would have been more enjoyable if I had more arm room on the cart. (It would be fine with average size people) But we had some bigger bodies on our tour who weren't thrilled about how small the seats were. They voiced their opinions but it didn't seem like their was much our tour guide could do.
By the end of the tour we had seen so much. I definitely recommend this tour! And if your tour guide does a good job, it's nice to know they accept tips! All in all, a great tour. Well worth the money and time.
