"Pleasantly surprised"
July, 2018
Typically, I’m not a tv fan. I attended the tour initially to please my niece who was my travel companion. We both ended up enjoying the tour very much. There’s lots of opportunities to learn and we both saw some familiar movie sets/props. Bring extra cash if you’re a Harry Potter fan and want to ride a broom (practice your swish and flick). I’d return because I believe each tour guide will share a unique experience of the studio.

"Very Attentive and Flexible!"
April, 2018
We reserved tickets for the Warner Brothers Studio Tour through Reserve Los Angeles and the day of the tour, had a huge conflict and couldn't make it. I called Reserve Los Angeles and not only did they go the extra mile to change my tickets to another day, they also told me I was getting a better deal on the tickets and were refunding $20.00 to my credit card. Now that's service with a smile!

Tip: The tour is extremely interesting but if you're going to see celebs, it probably won't happen.

We spent Christmas in L.A. where my son lives. We planned a lot of activities . The Warner tour was one of the best parts of our holiday . We really enjoyed the Ellen set . And sitting on the couch from the friends set. We went on the noon time tour on Christmas Eve . And we never felt rushed or disappointed with the tour guide . He was great .

"What Better Place Than Warner Brothers"
July, 2016
My family and I visited California in June of 2016. It was our first time visiting the West Coast so we wanted to do everything possible. When I found the Warner Brothers tour I was beyond excited! And the tour sure exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide was so friendly and full of so much information about the different movies and shows that have occurred on their grounds. She showed us where shows such as The Fosters, 2 Broke Girls, and Full house were filmed and created. One of my absolute favorite parts was visiting the soundstage for the show Big Bang Theory. Words can't describe how happy I was to see where one of my favorite shows came to record.
Stage 48 was just the cherry on top. Visiting the friends stage and ACTUALLY SITTING ON THE FRIENDS SET was absolutely fantastic! They also featured some old time favorites such as ER and gave you the chance to hold an actual Grammy. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the LA area. It was the highlight of our trip. There was so much information and activities jammed into the tour that you were never bored. Hopefully next time we can visit Ellen and attend a live recording of Big Bang Theory!

"Fun & fascinating"
June, 2016
Our tour guide, Jillian, was energetic and very knowledgeable. All the behind-the-scenes stops were fascinating, and we loved the Harry Potter room - would have liked more than the short time we were allowed - lost a rating star because of that!

Well organised and friendly tour guide. Mix of film and tv sets with some displays set up (Batman - cars, Harry Potter - props from film, Wonder Woman - costumes from film etc). Saw some live TV show sets. Took about 2 hours plus an extra hour wandering the last rooms with displays on how they make animations etc. Also the well publicised set of Friends (Central Perk): worth a visit but don’t need to go twice. No rides like Universal.

This tour ended up being a lot more than I expected. Exploring sound stages, being shown how they make live audience tv shows, seeing props and costumes from several of my favorite movies, & using camera tricks to take really cool pictures were all experiences that pleasantly surprised me. If you have time, this is a must

Reviewed September 24, 2018 NEW
I absolutely loved the studio tour!! It was so cool seeing sets from my favorite films and TV shows, and our guide, Megan, was super informative and cute and sweet! Accommodations were made for this guy in a wheelchair in our tour group, and everyone including our guide was very patient. I learned so much, again, thanks to our wonderful guide Megan. Would definitely do it again. (Minor downside: I missed getting a picture in the real Central Perk set/couch because I couldn't really find where it was; there wasn't a totally clear sign, and there were uniformed people outside where it possibly was, making me think you had to pay extra to get in. Slightly mad at myself for not trying harder to find it, but I guess I'll just have to go again!)

"Awesome behind the scenes tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 24, 2018 NEW
What makes this tour the best is definitely the tour guide. You are split into a group of 14 people and shuttled around the studio lot on golf carts. Our guide, Logan, asked up front what kind of shows we liked and what we were interested in seeing. He had a lot of knowledge about the shows and movies that were filmed here. The prop building was amazing to look at. We went on a Saturday, so nothing was filming, but we got to see many different places. Logan was awesome!!
