Great tour for any major film buff or even anyone that has a very simple film knowledge. The tour took about 4 hours in total and managed to cram in quite a lot, saw original pieces from my favourite films, academy awards, and saw original...More

The Paramount tour is a great behind the scenes tour of one of Hollywood's longest running studios. The tours are done on 8 seat extended golf buggy style vehicles so there are no crowds like some studio tours and you can get a good close...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

I paid for it and i really enjoyed it as i really like cinema. For the lunch, its not really worth it, but the additional time visiting the different corners of the studio and extra detail was what i wanted.

I did quite enjoy the VIP tour but it depends on what you are looking for. If you are going with kids just visiting LA then no, if you are a movie geek it's a long but detailed tour. Food was not the highlight of the tour... More
