Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The cost was roughly $180.00 per person but given the extra time, access, small group size, parking & lunch included it pencils out to a good value. Allison, our tour guide, exhibited great knowledge, genuiness, enthusiasm and a welcoming cheerfulness. Allison...More

The Paramount studio tour was just okay. We did the standard two hour tour and I was left sort of underwhelmed. I did the Sony tour a few years ago and saw many more sound stages and learned lots more information that I hadn't previously...More

If you are a movie buff, this is a great tour. Paramount Studios made some of the most iconic movies of all time - Ten Commandments, Godfather, etc., so many! As with any tour, your tour guide is key to the enjoyment and interest level...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

We made reservations and purchased them online and picked them up at the entrance when we arrived.
Hi Everyone! We're already booked on the Warner Bros tour, so should we do Paramount daytime tour or the night one? We thought the night one might at least have a different feel from the Warner Bros tour. Thanks for your advice!

I did the VIP tour at both, and I am glad I did. From what I could see of the "regular" tours, they were on the brief/rushed side. At Paramount the VIP tour took you inside the "vault", so we saw the original "Godfather... More
I'm considering taking the two-hour tour (Studio Tour, $55) at Paramount. Did anyone who gave a five-star review to this place take that lowest-priced tour? Or would I have to take a more expensive tour (V.I.P. or After Dark) to have a really good experience? I love movies and will enjoy hearing about them, but I'll be with my grown children, who would want to see some actual sets and costumes and memorabilia from well-known films. Thanks!

We did the 2 1/2 hour tour and it was great. Do wear sunscreen or you may have some odd tan lines.
