Great Experience! We were fortunate to get to see inside the Barbra Streisand Scoring Studio, one of the top two sound studios in the world and possibly the best for its acoustics, where the scores for countless great movies scores and recording artists have been recorded from Judy Garland recording the Wizard of Oz soundtrack to the greatest films today....

Requested tickets to see taping of Jeopardy. I walk with a cane and the staff, from front gate person to everyone involved with getting us to the taping was so friendly and considerate. Sonny, the person who drove us in the golf cart was so friendly and kind and took pictures of us posing inside at the jeopardy prop sets.... More

I had nothing against the tour guide. Nice fellow seemed to know his stuff, but we literally walked around essentially a load of back alleys with nice cream painted walls and "stage xx" on them - saw both spectacular - everything that was pointed out was reference to dead people - nothing modern or current here to loo at -...

I would give this one a miss. You have to use a lot of your imagination just to remember the scenery from you favorite series and movies that are shot there, as the tour guide is explaining everything to you. There is very limited access to the recording sets, we only got to go to "The Goldbergs" set and everything... More

My family went here this past summer, and it was a blast! We got to go on the set of the TV show, "The Goldbergs" and it was so cool! We also got to go on the set of "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune". We also get to see the rainbow that was in "The Wizard of Oz"

We enjoyed the tour of the studio. The introduction movie was very interesting and informative. With a little imagination you can see the Hollywood magic of movie making. Being on the set of the Goldbergs was pretty amazing,as well as the Wheel of fortune set. It was over 2 hours and our guide was very amusing and energetic. If you... More

Having now taken all the major studio tours (Warner Bros., Paramount, Sony, and Universal), I'd say this ranks number 3 out of the 4. Still worth a visit if you have the time, but you're trying to select just one tour to take, I'd look more closely at either Warner Bros. or Paramount. The biggest difference with this tour compared... More

Visiting in the area? Go to jeopardy.com and reserve tickets for an upcoming taping. The experience for the show taping was terrific. We did NOT take the studio tour after the taping, as the taping experience itself - the Jeorpardy show - was in and of itself a terrific experience.
