The Tour is the best Studio Tour in Hollywood . Our tour guide was the best knew everything and was so proud of his job . I want to go back and take my grandkids and friends. Very reasonably priced. I loved it.
Tip: Get there about 20 min before your time so you can check in. Buy your studio book at the end.

The four of us had a great time. Our guide was very informative. The museums were fun. Missed seeing more of older Warner Brother animation.
Tip: It was closer to three hours than two when you spend time in the final museum.

"Warner Bros Studio Tour"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
We are a family of 4 (two being older teenagers). I wasn't exactly sure what day and time we would be able to do the tour but it was not a problem. I checked the website the night before and did not have a problem choosing the time I wanted and reserving our spot. We left in plenty of time to get there and were actually one of the first to arrive because traffic was not a problem at all. Everyone was very friendly and our tour guide was great! My favorite was getting to sit on the 'Friends' couch at Central Perk since that is my favorite show and I was in my 20s watching it when it ran on TV for the first time. A guy actually proposed to his girlfriend on the couch while we were next in line to sit on the couch! It was also cool to see the studio where Big Bang theory is taped. It is much smaller than you would think it would be. A lot of the tour is riding around which is nice then you get off and go inside different places. We all enjoyed the tour very much!

My family and I went to LA last weekend and decided to go to the WB studio tour and I'm so glad we did! What a great experience! We purchased our tickets on ReserveLosAngeles.com because we found they had the best price and the process was easy and most convenient. On the day of the tour we easily found the location due to the many helpful signs guiding us from the freeway to the parking lot. You could opt for free street parking or park in the WB lot for $7. After checking in we went into a small theater to view a short film of clips from the numerous iconic WB productions through the years.
Next the audience was divided into groups of 12 and assigned a guide. Our guide, Eiffron was super knowledgeable and his enthusiasm was contagious. What an exciting experience we embarked upon: touring behind the scenes where some of our absolute favorite movies and television shows were made. Once we boarded our motorized cart we were driven around the massive 110 acre lot full of back lots, front lots, the Prop Department and The Archive, all among outside sets that were easily recognizable. Along the way we even spotted parking spaces reserved for some of our favorite celebrities. I loved stepping inside The Prop Department (which holds over 450k items) trying to spot props from some of my favorite scenes in movies and tv shows.
Next we had a few minutes to roam the Picture Car Vault which housed the Batman cars, Bat Mobile, Bat Pod and the Bat Hammer. Then we headed to the Archive where we had the chance to get up close and personal with several Harry Potter and Batman costumes and artifacts. We even got to have our picture taken with Hogwart's hat which told us which house we were in.
We were then taken inside the sound stage of The Big Bang Theory, one of my favorite shows. We sat right where a live audience would sit during filming while Eiffron explained how the entire filming process unfolds over a five day period. Implanting ourselves in the actual studio with several moving parts truly shows how it all comes together through the magic of television.
Everything from the casting process to costume design to special effects are explained through interactive activities and videos inside the final stop, Studio 48. We sat on the famous Central Perk couch from the show Friends and had our picture taken to capture the once in a lifetime moment.
Since my 8 year old daughter is a little too young to know Friends, she was ecstatic to have her very own free green screen experience. She sat on props and acted out short scenes from the movies Harry Potter, Batman and Gravity. Videos and photographs of this were available for purchase.
Our family truly enjoyed our Behind The Scenes Tour and feel as though we got the true Hollywood experience. If you're undecided on this tour, go! You won't be disappointed. We're looking forward to our next adventure already!
Tip: Children must be 8 years old and not all areas can be photographed.

The Warner Brothers Studio tour is the best tour on LA. We were impressed with how close you were able to get to the real sets, props, and costumes. The interactive museum at the end ties the tour together Our teenage kids enjoyed be able to learn real information and then be able to try doing it themselves. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the studios history, stars, and all the people who make the magic happen. He gave out tips on how to get a ticket for the taping of the varies shows at the studio as well. If you are a FRIENDS, Batman, Harry Potter, or Super Man, Ellen Show, Pretty Little Liars, The Bang Theory Fans this is a must see.

We signed up for the tour at 9am a few monyhs in advance. This isn't necessary because it's possible to buy tickets at the front desk. We had a great tour guide who adjusted to the group. In the beginning he asked if we wanted to see specific scenes or what show we loved. You get to see the famous watertank of WB, the back street where Spider-Man gives his upsidedown kiss, the original house of Annie and soo much more. After the tour you will never watch a movie like you did before!

Good value for money studio tour, definitely worth checking out next time you're in LA. The tour is reasonably priced, time effective (+/-3-5hrs) depending on how long you stay at the museum at the end of the tour. Tour Guide was extremely informative and very enthusiastic. It was amazing to see where all the magic is made and how its made - truly an eye-opener into the world of feature films and series production. Arguably the best part of the tour is museum at the end where one can view the set from Central Perk from friends and have a photo taken, theres also some cool green screen opportunities for you to try out.

We lucked out and they weren't really busy. Jose was out guide. He was very knowledgable and fun. The only downside to going in the summer is that most shows are on hiatus, so there isn't much filming. We enjoyed Stage 48 and the green screen sets you get to "act" on. Overall, it was a great time.
