If you want to visit a movie studio that allows you to see sets, props and scenes from well known and loved tv programmes and films, do not bother with this studio!
My husband and I had already done the Warner Bros Studios tour in 2013 and it was fantastic, so we planned to tour a different studio tour when in LA in 2014. We debated between Sony and Paramount and settled on Paramount because they were open on Saturdays when Sony was not.
We paid $100 for the two tickets and I can honestly say it was a total waste of money! The tour guides are nowhere near as enthusiastic and knowledgable as the guides we saw in Warner Bros. They show you, at the start of the tour, the movies that were made at Paramount Studios such as Titanic, The Godfather, Forest Gump, Wolf of Wall Street etc. However you do not see anything on the tour regarding these movies (oh apart from the supposed bench that Forest Gump sat on during the movie!). You get driven around in a golf cart, and the only sound stages/sets we visited were either pilot tv shows that were unknown or kids tv shows that, as British adults, we had never heard of! The only set that we recognised was Dr.Phil, but personally for us this was not that interesting!
Compared to Warner Bros - who take you on sets such as The Hangover, Friends, Ellen, The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men - this tour is really really disappointing. I was literally falling asleep when the tour guide was speaking because he was so boring! The only interesting thing he did was show us scenes on his iPad of movies that were filmed in the spot you were sitting, but other than this you don't get to really feel the Paramount experience.
Take my advice and spend your money on Warner Bros studio tour! We wouldn't go back even if the tickets were free!!!!
