It was a great experience. Worth the money. Very nice staff and tour guides. Organized tour. You get to tour around the outside sets, plus the inside sets of actual TV shows. Would definitely recommend if you are into movies or how movies are made. Ultimately, we ended up choosing this one over the others like Universal and Paramount. This tour has a ton of interactive stuff about Friends, Harry Potter, and Batman.

Schöne Tour durch die Filmgeschichte(n) der Studios. Umfangreiche Befahrung und Begehung der Außenkulissen und eines Studios mit sehr informativen Guide. Schöne Ausstellungen im Empfangsbereich und nach der Führung zur Geschichte der Studios und bekannten Serien und Spielfilmen. Direkt aus dem Parkhaus zu erreichen.

I didn’t know what to expect going into this experience and wasn’t sure on how much I’d get to see within the time frame. Can confirm that I was not disappointed and the overall experience was fantastic! For a first timer visiting LA and who is thinking on doing this, I’d highly recommend going for it.

My family really liked this tour! Fantastic going behind the scenes!!!!
