For an ultimate Hollywood experience, visit Universal Studios Hollywood, a film studio, theme park, and a self-contained city all its own. One of the oldest Hollywood studios still in use, this show business complex considers itself "the entertainment capital of Los Angeles." Originally created to offer tours of real film studios, sets, and sound stages, the complex now offers live shows, thrill rides, and behind-the-scenes presentations about the movie-making process. To see the highlights, take a tram tour of the sound stages and sets designed specifically for some of the studio's biggest blockbusters. You can also choose from indoor and outdoor roller-coaster rides that provide you the chance to face King Kong, a shark attack, dinosaurs, and a powerful earthquake.

  • It’s great place very clean and organized for the visitors and funny trip for your kids if you have I spent good time over there  more »
  • The scariest things about Halloween horror night at Universal Studios were the price tag and the lines! 90 minutes wait to get into the Texas Chainsaw Massacre attraction - which of course wasn't all....  more »
  • This place was so cool. We came in Aug 2019 and my kids STILL talk about it. There's so much here to check out. The working studios, the rides and attractions, the tour through the park on the train, it was all amazing. We actually came back a second day. And I was a big fan of the whole place being laid out on the side of a mountain. And the views of the San Fernando Valley from the designated smoking area were amazing! Time it at sunset. Not much comes close!
  • We just did the tour with Ashley and had a FANTASTIC time. She was funny & informative the whole tour. Played trivia games, were on the hunt for celebrities, won t-shirts, and had a ball!!!Harvey - give this girl a raise! She was awesome! This was our 3rd tour in Hollywood, from 3 different companies, and she was by far the best guide we had! Would definitely do this tour again ! :-)
