What a disappointment. The tour is basically a walk around the Sony grounds with a tour guide pointing out the studios where things were filmed. The exteriors are plain square warehouses. Half of the tour was looking in a small museum of props, the gift...More

The walking tour is indeed an eye opener for many TV shows, ie. Wheel of Fortune, Movies productions, sound recording studios, etc. We were given a free photo souvenir after the tour.

Living in Culver City I was able to get some free passes to the studio. It was a lot of walking but a very interesting tour. I have toured other studios and this was right up there with most of them except for Universal.
