Prepare to be pampered like a star with a VIP Tour of Universal Studios Hollywood you'll never forget.

Immerse yourself in a full day of movie-making magic as you discover the Universal Studios the general public doesn't get to see. You'll go behind the scenes to visit closed-to-the-public sets and working soundstages, and hear inside stories about the making of famous movies and TV shows.

You'll see actual sets from legendary movies and shows like the Bates Motel from Psycho, visit Wisteria Lane from ABC's hit series Desperate Housewives, or tour the set from Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds.

Plus you'll get to explore Universal's award-winning sound department, and roam the enormous prop warehouse where you can take photos with props from historical films.

In addition to your VIP tour, enjoy:

  • VIP lounge
  • Valet parking
  • Gourmet lunch in the exclusive VIP dining room
