Where are we going today?

Lights...camera....and ACTION! Have you ever wanted to experience the magic of the movies first hand? Warner Bros Studio Tours are there for that very reason!

The whole family can go behind the scenes of some of your favorite movies, taking you close than ever to the magic of film and TV.

The Warner Bros Studio Tour lets you explore those iconic backlots (great for guessing what set you are on!), The Archive which is two floors of very cool memorabilia, including real costumes and props from the Harry Potter and Batman films, as well as The Picture Car Vault, that has actually been transformed into a Batcave!

Experiences and exhibits like these are limited time, so you might just be surprised what you get to witness when you visit for yourselves!

The backlot tour will take you on a film journey. You can see the sets from films such as Casablanca, and TV shows like Friends and Gilmore Girls.

There are 10 backlots and 30 soundstages to pic from, and with 110 acres of exploration, you will feel like you are one of the stars by the time you leave!

Don't forget...the Warner Bros Studio is one of the busiest in the world, so of course there are productions going on right around you!

TV shows like The Big Bang Theory, Ellen, and Conan are being filmed all around you!

The tour also lets you enjoy Stage 48: Script to Screen, which is an interactive soundstage that explores all of the phases of the film and television production process. This 45 minutes might be the start of a new career as you learn some of Hollywood's best kept secrets!

Are you ready for your close up!?

    The tour content had some really good aspects worth seeing, however, our overall impression was negative. This was, in my opinion, a 40 minute tour made to take 2 hours. Too much driving around the outside of buildings all alike with only a comment about what show was in production here and there. Our tour guide was really annoying as she rambled off her well-rehearsed monotone script with many affectations which only served to irritate rather than inform. With only 40 minutes worth of content the $57.00 cost (an add-on $3.00 was included for some...Read More

    WORST TOUR EVER! I've taken out of town family members on different tours before, but this one, although touted as the best one- SUCKS! Don't waste your money, unless you want to participate in a WB indoctrination, into their many TV sitcoms. Unless you are a couch potato who are unemployed and watch the many inane sitcoms on TV, you really won't identify with this tour. It was in the middle of this boooring tour, that I realized, this is nothing more than a propaganda tour. Pushing their sitcoms onto you. What happened to the many wonderful...Read More

    After going to Universal the day before, it is fairly easy to compare, and highlight the differences. In short this tour has little personality, and almost no "meat" on its bones.

    The tour starts with a very well orchestrated video presentation... the person introducing the video had no energy, and sounded completely board of her job... After talking to my daughter, she felt the same way, but both hopeful, the tour guide would be better.... Not to be the case.

    We started off by a very lack luster tour of the back lot. The tour guide presented...Read More

    Had a great time here. From walking the "Friends" set to the Scooby Doo van to seeing the Batmobile. Staff are really friendly and knowledgeable too, so feel free to ask questions throughout the tour. The gift shop has plenty of decent merchandise from Harry Potter and "The Big Bang Theory" TV show among many others.

    We went recently and had a great time. Compared to other reviews (sounds like we got the deluxe treatment, while paying vip price), it sounds like we got a great tour guide (Elliot). He drove us around the lot and explained what/how shows and movies were filmed there. We also had a chance to walk around the streets to take pictures and go inside many different studios too. We were able to see a lot of things that we are interested in, because our tour guide had asked us in the beginning what shows and movies we were all into. I'm a big batman fan...Read More

What happened to the many wonderful moments of past years that was filmed here? Only about 5% of the tour mentions the past.
Save your money and take the Paramount or the Universal tour. Much cheaper and goes into the legends of Hollywood and not JUST the stupid new sitcoms WB is trying to pawn off on you. Final word YUCK!!

The tour starts with a very well orchestrated video presentation... the person introducing the video had no energy, and sounded completely board of her job... After talking to my daughter, she felt the same way, but both hopeful, the tour guide would be better.... Not to be the case.

We started off by a very lack luster tour of the back lot. The tour guide presented the information with no personality, and little if any enthusiasm for the facts. I think our whole tram felt headphones would have been more informative.... Then we got dropped off for 25 minutes at a very small Batman and Harry Potter museum.... So, tour so far is 1 hour since we arrived... 10 minute intro, 15 minutes driving through the back lot, and 25 minutes in a museum (that needed 10-15 at the very most). Why do I say that.. 4 tour groups were all huddled at the entrance waiting to get out of the micro museum... Then another 15 minutes in another Batman museum of Bat Cars.. (that I think I've seen in at least 2 or 3 other places for the most part, but not all)

Then on to what would should have been the good stuff.. right? Live studios... Well, we did walk through the working sets, which was really interesting. Its just too bad that the guide couldn't muster enough energy or enthusiasm to get us engaged in what we should have been immersed in.

By the time we got back to the gift shop, 8 out of 10 of the people on the tour literally were so disinterested they didn't even care to follow the tour guide back in through the shop. (seriously)...

I wish Warner Brothers would take a lesson from Universal, and make the tour personal, and informative, and fun for goodness sake... it just wasn't any of that... It deserved 2 stars.. why? ...... Because the tour was just below average, not terrible...

If you only have 1 day to do a studio...consider all the options... I'm not sure I would choose this one again, or even recommend it.

I'm a big batman fan and luckily was able to visit when they had the batman exhibit. We also got to see the Harry Potter one too. I'd definitely recommend this tour. Elliot was really great and gave many tips. The only reason I do not give this tour 5 stars is because of the museum experience. We were only able to stay for 10-15 minutes. Felt rushed to see everything.
