The VIP experience was well worth the money for people who want to see as much as possible in the one day while being fed with nibbles for breakfast and exceptional buffet at lunch ,with personal commentary from knowledgeable guides. Front of line access to all rides and plenty of free time at the end to wander and souvenir hunt.
Highly recommend our tour guide was fantastic and going behind the scences was well worth the money.
The breakfast is amazing and the lunch is awesome the lunch even has sea food in it. Our tour guide went back and even got more bottled water for us as it was such a hot day.
Great tour!! Very worth the $$$ our guide was amazing and we got to learn a lot about movies and how they're made. The lunch was fantastic!
A truly amazing day well worth paying the extra for the vip tour you got to see both sides of universal studios the behind the scenes and front of queue on all the rides the Buffet lunch was amazing there was so much choice I would say it was definitely the best food on the whole park. Our guide for the day was Mark he was very informative and really knew stuff definitely a trip to do if you are ever in Los Angeles
This is definitely the best way to visit Universal Studios! We had a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice and was then met by our guide for the day. He took us to the different rides and walked us straight to the front of the queues, he also gave us plenty of information. We then stopped for a brilliant buffet lunch, again with plenty of choice and the food was delicious. Then it was time for the studio tour where we saw the different sets and got to have a wander around them, it was interesting to hear the different films sets had been used in that you didn't realise. We then had the rest of the day to ourselves and it was a definite bonus to still be able to jump the queues for rides. It was a brilliant way to spend my sister's birthday and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Universal Studios, it is well worth the money!
OMG! One of the best tours I did on my trip. Skip the line pass with this is amazing. Not waiting for rides - best way to enjoy the most of your day and the attractions at Universal Studios. VIP seating is also well worth it as once again you don't have to go and start lining up half hour or more before the performance / show and still get the best spots in the house! Great use of your time here. So much fun on this tour! You also get to walk around the sets and see "hot sets" as part of this tour.
The VIP Experience will make you really like VIP Person the lounge, the buffet lunch with 5 star food, just a small group of people with tour guide, you can stop and take picture on location, you don't have to queued when entering the attraction especially for the Transformers very long que. Highly recommended if you want to feel everything in 1 day.
I could not recommend this tour highly enough, it was absolutely the highlight of our trip! It is worth getting the VIP package as parking is included as well as breakfast, lunch and bottles of water. Unless you choose to buy souvenirs or alcohol you won't need to spend any more money in the park. The tour was fantastic, our guide Tanisha was with us for the whole day and was really lovely. We had front of line passes for all the rides to go on them as often as we liked as well as reserved seats at the shows, the food was delicious with a really great selection... I could go on and on! A really excellent tour!
The VIP Tour was great. We arrived earlier than expected and luckily enough able to get on a earlier tour. Sheryl was great, no mucking around and no fuss. Sheryl showed us all the highlights, took us to the rides straight up before it got to busy walking anywhere. The breakfast and lunch was great and good to have a decent meal included. The back lot tour was awesome and great to get off and see everything in a different perspective than on the normal back lot tour. Well worth the money.
A superb day out. A bit expensive, perhaps, but worth it for a first visit. The behind the scenes element needs the VIP tour, so it is necessary if that side of things is your interest. The guide makes sure you miss nothing. For subsequent visits, if the theme park element is your main interest, then a cheaper "front of queue" pass would be OK. If we go again, it will be for the VIP version!
Loved this tour. Our guide was entertaining and informative.
Although it was a very hot day, the misting system really cooled us down and the front of line pass was fantastic! Limited wait times. we enjoyed the tour of the studio and all the special effects. The rides were lots of fun too.
Breakfast and lunch were delicious with plenty on offer to please.
We had the best experience, would highly recommend
This is the only way to do a theme park! Our guide Peter Gardner was knowledgeable. We were greeted in the VIP lounge and had a light breakfast. We then went off on the studio tour - the VIP tour accesses areas that are not available on the standard tour. The gourmet lunch was brilliant, especially as it was my son's birthday and we were able to bring a cake with us. They took it off us when we arrived and brought it out after lunch with all the staff singing Happy Birthday! We were able to go on all the rides and see the shows without queuing. The only improvement is it would have been nice to be able to access the VIP lounge and restrooms throughout the day.
Fabulous well worth the extra for the backlot and more personalised attention.
