Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour and Movie Stars' Homes Tour
Pass by the sound stages of TV shows like The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. See backlots where movies like Spiderman and Argo, and TV shows like Seinfeld and Pretty Little Liars, were filmed. Learn about how interior scenes are shot and how sets are torn down and rebuilt to create the proper scenes for various shows and films.
Hear movie sound effects, watch a special effects demonstration, and step onto a recreated set from Friends. You can even sit on the famous orange couch. Then visit the incredible Warner Bros. prop department to see furniture and other objects you may recognize from the big or small screen.
Your studio tour also includes entrance to the memorabilia-filled Warner Bros. Museum and the Transportation Museum, where you can check out real vehicles used in movies, such as the Batmobile and the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo.
After the Warner Bros. tour, the second part of your Hollywood experience — the 2-hour celebrity homes tour — takes place, chauffeuring you around the exclusive Los Angeles suburbs where movie stars live, shop and go out. Your small-group minibus allows you to visit neighborhoods that are off-limits to larger coaches so you can see as many unbelievable mansions as possible.
See houses that belong or used to belong to stars like Halle Berry, Tom Cruise, Madonna, David and Victoria Beckham, Ozzy Osbourne, Richard Gere, Lucille Ball and Frank Sinatra. Cruise down the Sunset Strip, enjoy a view of the Hollywood Sign, and pass by Hollywood hotspots like the Walk of Fame, Whiskey a Go Go, the Viper Room and Chateau Marmont. Stop by Rodeo Drive to see the designer stores and sparkling jewelry shops that outfit A-list actresses for awards shows, and zip by the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, featured in Pretty Woman.
By the end of your day tour, you’ll be an expert in all things Hollywood and have plenty of stories to take back home to family and friends.

Getting through security at Warner Bros. is quite an ordeal. Once that's over, you're brought onto the lot itself. We saw the set of "Ellen" plus the backstage area and her parking space, along with the set of "Friends" and "The Big Bang Theory".
There are some restrictions on where cameras are allowed, though, so don't expect to take pictures inside a building.
You'll also visit a costume museum where you can see outfits worn by Ben Affleck, Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake, among others.
This tour is worth doing, not only because of what you see, but also because of all the "insider" activity on the lot.
