We picked this tour because it was a real working studio, not an amusement park. I bought our tickets on line a few days before for best selection. The tours are small - 2 groups of 7. Parking was easy ($12) across the street in a lot. We arrived 30 minutes before our tour and read about the history of... More

We were greeted by Michael at the start of our tour. He was a wonderful guide. During our stay in LA we did the Universal, WB and Paramount tour. This one was definitely more history based. As soon as we turned onto the lot we saw Johnny Knoxville from Jackass movies walking along to his set. We also got to... More

I was shocked when my husband said he was willing to pay the admission fee because the tour was something unique. The four of us had our own guide who even provided us with ponchos as it was raining that day and we were unprepared. Jasmine was a wonderful guide who was able to keep us all interested for the...

I took a group of 30 students there a few days ago and had an outstanding experience. Our three tour guides, Andrew, Cody, and Lauren S., went above and beyond to ensure that we had an amazing tour experience. The tour's pace was perfect with great insights on the television and movie production world. The multiple stages we saw had... More

This is such a waste of money! ($55 per person) Such a tourist trap! They even have a deal with the parking lot across the street, to charge $12 (for one hour!) all those who came for a studio tour. The parking attendant asks you if you are booked for a tour. Why? Now the tour...it is an expensive golf... More

Brittany was our guide and did an excellent job. The tour is a must-do if you are in the area. My 'title' says it all - absolutely fascinating. (I wish we'd done the 4 hour tour instead of the 2 hour one.)

This was our first trip to Los Angeles and studio tours were a top priority on our list. One good thing to note is that children are not allowed under the age of 8 on the tours. Upon arrival we were given a Paramount Pass with your name on it, which was a great keepsake item. I encourage you to... More

My family and I took the "After Dark Tour" and it was awesome! Before the tour you were given a Paramount Pass with your name on it - great keepsake - water and champagne. Halfway through the tour popcorn and movie candy was provided. The entire tour is on foot and it lasts 21/2 hours. It was a very intimate... More

If you are into movies, you have to go on the studio tour of Paramount Pictures. For 55$ you get a 2 hours guided tour, Sarah (our guide) was very professional and time flew! We saw many places and artifacts that we knew from movie, it's almost like being part of it. You are not allowed to walk on your... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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 partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
