Loved it. Small tour groups and all given earpieces to hear the guide. We were asked if we had any particular interests to check out (costumes for me) which the guide picked up on. No filming anywhere apart from the Props Dept and no photographing...More

What's great about this tour is that you are placed in groups of only 6 people. Thus there is a lot of opportunity for questions and additional information.

I visited with my 15-year-old son and parents in their 80s. Having been to Warner Brothers last summer, I would say that is way better. This studio tour included seeing one set (Dr. Phil) and seeing some locations where other things were filmed. Our guide...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

No. I was very disappointed in the facilities in the waiting area. Warner Brothers win by far in this category.

Book online, or call the Studio. We did that a day before we went and everything went fine. It was an excellent tour.
