Most Popular Studio Tours in Hollywood and Los Angeles

Glitterati Tours of Beverly Hills often gets asked if we do studio tours of Hollywood and Los Angeles.  Yes, and no.  We never have access past the gates of these legendary movie and television creative machines.  We do have a tour called “Whirlwind LA, plus Studios.”  This tour gives guests a wonderful city perspective of Hollywood, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and puts an extra emphasis on the history of the famous star machines in the birth of the Hollywood movie industry.  This includes the independent studios where Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Mary Pickford, Harold Lloyd and Douglas Fairbanks kicked off their careers.

Paramount Studios Tour

With television threatening the movie industry in the 50’s, we also include famous studios like Desilu, with hit shows like I Love Lucy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, the original Star Trek, Make Room for Daddy, The Andy Griffith Show and The Untouchables.

Again, no access past the gates, but our studio emphasis tour gives guests a great peek at the classic RKO, Paramount, Famous Players, Warner Bros, Disney, and Columbia Studios and their long list of classics.  Everything from The Three Stooges, and The Jazz Singer, to TV shows like Friends and Ellen.

Many of the major studios provide their own walking/golf cart/tram tours.  Look into special VIP access tours at the major studios.  This gives guests extended access to prop rooms, working sets, and personalized service.  We don’t recommend having a private tour company arrange or guide you through these studios, for they all have their own amazing guides and docents… why pay double!  During the summer months, we highly recommend booking ASAP with these studios, for many sell out during June, July and August.
