I had nothing against the tour guide. Nice fellow seemed to know his stuff, but we literally walked around essentially a load of back alleys with nice cream painted walls and "stage xx" on them - saw both spectacular - everything that was pointed out was reference to dead people - nothing modern or current here to loo at -...

my wife's first visit to a studio and she was impressed with what goes on behind the camera - how the sets are set up etc. i've been to a studio before but was still impressed with what we saw during the 2 hr tour. most impressive aspect was the free parking included in your studio pass - but it...

I would give this one a miss. You have to use a lot of your imagination just to remember the scenery from you favorite series and movies that are shot there, as the tour guide is explaining everything to you. There is very limited access to the recording sets, we only got to go to "The Goldbergs" set and everything... More

My family went here this past summer, and it was a blast! We got to go on the set of the TV show, "The Goldbergs" and it was so cool! We also got to go on the set of "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune". We also get to see the rainbow that was in "The Wizard of Oz"

We enjoyed the tour of the studio. The introduction movie was very interesting and informative. With a little imagination you can see the Hollywood magic of movie making. Being on the set of the Goldbergs was pretty amazing,as well as the Wheel of fortune set. It was over 2 hours and our guide was very amusing and energetic. If you... More

Having now taken all the major studio tours (Warner Bros., Paramount, Sony, and Universal), I'd say this ranks number 3 out of the 4. Still worth a visit if you have the time, but you're trying to select just one tour to take, I'd look more closely at either Warner Bros. or Paramount. The biggest difference with this tour compared... More

Visiting in the area? Go to jeopardy.com and reserve tickets for an upcoming taping. The experience for the show taping was terrific. We did NOT take the studio tour after the taping, as the taping experience itself - the Jeorpardy show - was in and of itself a terrific experience.

Have been on a few studio tours and this is the best yet. Right from the moment you walk into the building you are treated like a welcomed guest. Our tour guide was very friendly and knew his stuff. The lot was very clean. They give you a picture at the end.
