This attraction is only offered until 12/31/2012. Unfortunately we cannot accept any reservations after that date due to capacity restraints.

Get an up-close look at the only major classic studio still located in Hollywood with a Paramount Studios Picture Tour. Paramount Pictures stands rich in history and tradition while continuing to set the standard for global entertainment!

Your Paramount Pictures Studio Tour is a guided two-hour tour, full of history and information. In the hands of a capable and knowledgeable guide, you will get an up-close tour of the major working elements of one of the nation’s largest operating film studios, and you'll walk away with a deeper appreciation for the many intricate pieces that come together to make a motion picture—a massive undertaking!

Please note: This is a working studio, and the Paramount Pictures Studio Tour is limited to those aged 12 and above. The tour is only available by reservation and on weekdays.

On your Paramount Pictures Studio Tour, you will walk down streets designed to look like those of New York City and Chicago, complete with authentic design features and fire escapes. The New York City backlot, for example, has been very carefully created on a 5-acre site and recreates eight distinct areas of the city: Brooklyn, Brownstone, Financial District, Greenwich Village, Lower East Side, SoHo, Upper East Side, and Washington Square.

You’ll check out other architectural structures, grassy parks and facades that make up the backdrops for many of the movies you’ve loved over the years. Some will have the opportunity to walk into a soundstage (no photography allowed), see crew members building sets, and check out the staff and extras enjoying their meals at the cafeteria and eateries around the studio!

Reviews show that each Paramount Pictures Studios Tour is indeed different, and tour guides will take the time to learn about your individual tastes, pointing out the sights and scenes that are of most interest to you. While you shouldn’t expect a celebrity encounter, per se, there is a strong possibility that you will see someone you recognize from the big screen milling about….after all, this is their workplace!

Save on admission on a Paramount Pictures Studio Tour, plus LA's top museums, sights, and tours all for one low price with the Go Los Angeles Card!

A Brilliant Studio Tour
By Disbabe Verified Reviewer from Stafford, UK on
Well Presented Tour, Informative, Friendly Tour Guides
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Paramount Pictures Studio Tour:

You need to arrive 30 mins before the start of the tour to go through the security gate and then obtain your ticket with the card. There are quite a number of carts in use at the same time (so not just one tour at a time). You are NOT allowed to videotape at any point of the tour, but are free to use cameras to take photo's of areas that are not being used by film companies. You are also not allowed to photograph production people/items in use on the lot or of the film stars you may come across or anything inside the soundstages (only outside areas). The tour guides were extremely friendly and kept asking if we ahd any questions. They were very knowledgeable and explained alot of production stuff as we went around. We were able to tough the bronson gates (the gates contained within the Paramount arch as seen on their motife. The guides will take a group photo of you in front of these gates and of you sitting on one of the benches used in the film "Forrest Gump". Overall it was awe inspiring and well worth a visit as we got to see a couple of film stars too (no photo's though)
