    This was a totally awesome tour and not many people know about it. If you are in L.A., I highly recommend that you go on this tour, it's worth the money. Only a handful of Hollywood movie studios offer tours, fortunately Warner Bros is one of them - and it may well be the best overall studio tour available to the general public. Unlike the Universal Studios tour, guests here aren't herded aboard monster trams by the thousands, and driven through theme park rides.

    At Warner Bros, the VIP tours are far more personal, limited to small groups of fewer than twelve people. And the studio back lot that you see is the real thing. However, the tour is also one of Hollywood's best-kept secrets. Where Universal processes millions of tourists each year, only about 120 people a day discover the Warner Bros tour. You and your tour guide ramble about in a small tram resembling a golf cart; you are allowed to stop and get out of the tram to inspect many of the sets up-close, and your guide is always nearby to answer any questions you might have.

    The tour is much more extensive and authentic than the superficial, indoor tour at NBC Studios. And although the WB tours last two full hours, you don't have to spend all of that time on your feet, as you do during the Paramount Studio walking tour. The Warner's back lot is also a lot more colorful than the Paramount property. The drawback, however, is the cost, Warner Bros charges a whopping $33 each for this special VIP tour (compared with $15 for Paramount, and $7 for NBC).

    This tour lasts about 2 hours or so. At first you are driven, by golfcart, around these massive studio's...by a guide, who shows you varios sets that have used in horrors, westerns...all sorts!
