I enjoyed the tour, and it was neat to walk on some of the sets and past some famous props, but I think the price is a little steep for what you actually see. The tour guide (Aaron?) was very friendly and knowledgeable and made the tour much better than it could have been. They were also very accommodating, as... More

We were really torn on this trip based on previous reviews, especially being from the UK as a lot of reviews say that it is only relevant to people who watch American TV, however we really enjoyed the day. You get a souvenir lanyard and photo which I think is a really nice touch, we didn;t get this service ANYWHERE... More

We have taken other studio tours and this was a huge disappointment. I have to tell you it was neither informative or entertaining. Again sorry we wasted our time coming here,

Found out about this tour when we signed up to see Jeopardy being filmed...we did the 2.30 tour...we truly enjoyed the tour and it was nice that it wasn't part of a amusement park...there was lots of walking.....fast walking....i would not recomend this tour if you had a hard time walking or needed to sit...not really wheel chair accessible.

Do not waste your time "visiting " these well painted buildings from the outside with the verbal support of a kind guide who tells you that in that building they filmed, a long time ago, some tv show or movie. Emphasis on Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, MIB, Spider-Man and The Goldbergs. Not very exciting. Go to the beach instead: you'll... More

I had toured Warner Bros studios in the past so I had that to compare this tour to. Warner gets more in depth then this tour. Albeit for the price wasn't terrible but we didn't get to see as much in depth. We got to see the set of Jeopardy , Wheel of Fortune and The Goldberg's. Overall it was... More

I was somewhat apprehensive about doing the Sony tour as the others (Universal and Warner Brothers) seemed to be more highly. But my son definitely wanted to do this one so we accommodated and it turned out great. Our tour guide was personable and shared tidbits throughout the tour that kept it interesting. We were able to see a replica... More

I really enjoyed being on the lot of a real, working studio. The tour begins independently in a space where you can look at movie and tv memorabilia. Then we watched a movie on the history of Sony Pictures/MGM. The rest of the time was on foot walking both outside and inside of stage buildings. Went into the set of... More

I have no point of comparison, but I enjoyed the tour. Guide was friendly and very knowledgable. We coupled with seeing taping of Jeopardy, which was great fun. Bit tricky to have to walk to lunch down the street on top of all the tour walking for some, but I rather enjoyed walking in nice LA weather!
