We really enjoyed the Warner Bros Studio tour. It was cool, informative and personal. We saw a star or two, got to sit on a set and play in the interactive area. The home tour was awesome. Loved Danny Ray our guide. It was worth the money. I would do it again
This tour was amazing. For any television or film lover, this is the place to go. The studio tour was very interesting and didn't feel short. Our tour guide Michael knew exactly what he was talking about and made for a very enjoyable experience. The script to screen museum was excellent and highly interesting. Pick up and drop off from our hotel was also well organised and smooth. Go if you can.
The tour people were great, and there was a great amount of knowledge from there living there. There were 6 in our group and 5 had never been there before. so this was great for them, I would recommend this to anyone that was going to LA.
The tour was really nice especially the Studio tour. We saw a lot and the workers at the WB.Studio really knew what they were talking about. It is an expensice price but worth to pay if the weather is nice at least for the movie stars homes tour it should not be raining. The only thing we almost missed out bus because on our reservation sheet and ticket it was not stated where we had to go with it in order to go to our bus it said meeting was in front of the cinema but actually there was just the little kiosk from a different provider who actually did the tour and the buses where all the way around. Lucky for us we walked there half an hour before and we ask around and found our provider by coincident.
The VIP Warner brothers tour was really good we got to go on the sets of Big Bang theory and 2 broke girls as well as Ellen's set. It was a really good tour the guide was really lovely she knew a lot of information
This tour was fantastic, perfect if you don't have much time on your hands to explore. Michael the tour guide for the star homes was brilliant, very funny and attentive. The second part was Warner Bros and this was fascinating.
All in all a great tour, well worth the money spent
I learned alot about what goes on behind the scenes. I love all the Harry Potter props we got to see.
Great tour and we got to see the soundset of Big Bang Theory my husband is a big fan
great tour guide, excellent knowledge and an iconic setting. this trip is well worth doing, lots of photo opportunities on your favourite shows a1.
Getting through security at Warner Bros. is quite an ordeal. Once that's over, you're brought onto the lot itself. We saw the set of "Ellen" plus the backstage area and her parking space, along with the set of "Friends" and "The Big Bang Theory".
There are some restrictions on where cameras are allowed, though, so don't expect to take pictures inside a building.
You'll also visit a costume museum where you can see outfits worn by Ben Affleck, Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake, among others.
This tour is worth doing, not only because of what you see, but also because of all the "insider" activity on the lot.
I have recommended this tour to many of my friends and collegues. For people who have done the Universal tram tour this is similar, but WAY better! Very interactive. Awesome to see behind the scenes.
The drivers were all very helpful, and they even dropped us at the farmer's market on the return.
The only downside is that you have to change buses at the Chinese Theatre which takes up so much time
The tour was excellent providing a good insight into L.A. - It showed us the Hollywood Bowl and explained the natural acoustics of the canyon, it explained and took us to the Miracle Mile and what a fascinating biological find that is and how individualised is LA because of it, Took us to Sunset Boulevard, Beverly Hills and
Farmer's Market and showed us the first settlers home and the strong Spanish Indian feeling of LA and its beginnings.
It was a very interesting and fun Tour once you get to Warner Bros. Starline Tours were fine at picking me up at the hotel, but then taken to down town LA to collect a ticket to get back on a bus to be taken within minutes of my hotel.
The tour guide was very knowledgable and it was something he enjoyed doing. We travelled around the lot on little buggies and were allowed to take photos in most locations. There were some placed that were restricted due to filming in progress and because they were current shows, photography was not allowed and in fact, cameras were locked away! Understandably.
Having done the Universal VIP Tour the day before I was able to make a good comparison between the two - Warner Bros VIP Tour gives the feeling on being on a real working active film studio and that was the feeling you got. Also, there was a real feeling of history, when driving my the sound stages and seeing the iconic films and shows that were filmed there over the 90 years of filming on that site.
A great experience.
Only to be tinged with frustration by Starline Tours, who didn't provide a good service. We were constantly told that we needed to be at the departure point on time, which slightly restricted the time on the Warner Bros store. Having done what were were told, we were delayed by 20minutes because the driver did not know that some of group had not arrived for the tour but were told by people on the tour that they were not there, insisted in waiting for them. This delay made for upset on the coach, as a group of Australian tourists were on a very tight schedule.
The tour of Warner Bros itself was excellent. Informative guide. We saw a lot in the time given. Downside was all the waiting around in downtown Hollywood waiting for transport to get us there. The coach did not leave when it was scheduled and so we had less time at the studios.
A fantastic studio tour. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The tour guide tailored the tour based on his groups interests. (10 people per group once you get to WB) We got a comprehensive tour with excellent commentary. The tourgroup (starline tours) were brilliant as well. We were picked up from our hotel at the stated time. The down side was that it took 2 hours to get from our hotel to the depot in Hollywood. From here its not far to WB,
Very interesting and fun tour. Make sure you book ahead of time as it gets sold out quickly.
Great trip. Our tour guide at Warner Bros was excellent. Both teenage kids with us really enjoyed it. The only disappointment of the day was that we paired this trip up 'Stars Homes Tour' which was pathetic. There was no current stars homes highlighted only people we had never heard of or previous owners, very disappointing and a complete waste of time!!!
Fantastic tour, lots of information on Hart of Dixie and True Blood.
I would definitely recommend this tour, the tour guides give you endless amounts of facts and information and if you're lucky you might see a celebrity or two. We got to walk on sets of our favorite Warner Bros tv series and movies and even see the coffee shop from friends. I can see myself doing this tour again whenever I return back to Los Angeles.
