  • ♡ Kubra

    Wow the Fast&Furios ride in the tour finale is the very best! Worths all the wait in the line which takes up to 2hrs.

    ♡ Kubra · August 25
  • Len B.

    One of the best parks of visiting Universal Studios.

    Len B. · August 21
  • Joseph Y.

    If you want a loner's opinion, it's to take the night tour before you take the day one. But take both. And lastly, try to sit on the left side of the bus. You will see more.

    Joseph Yamsanoodle · August 17
  • Maribel E.

    If u want to enjoy the tour ... SIT IN THE MIDDLE CAR or send to the last

  • JNET

    Best to sit in third or fourth car on the left hand side 😊

  • Violet R.

    It's usually a good tour but we were on the bus for an hour because of technical problems and watched clips instead, not vey happy

    A great way to spend an hour in Universal Studios. A really enthusiastic host and great fun. Really recommendable.

  • Chris C.

    If you can, go for the back side of tram 4 or 5 and sit on the left. Many more explosions, plus there's some psychotic mama's boy that always comes out on the right

    Chris Cookson · May 13
  • D G.

    King Kong!!

    Anwar El Chamaa · December 8, 2014
  • S G.

    I love going on this tour since they take you back to all the different scenes where the magic happens... But if you do this with the VIP tour... It is awesome🎆🎇🎆🎬🎥🎦

    Though the very long line, it doesn't take too long to wait. The tour is quite exciting and mind-blowing sometimes. It takes about more than 40 mins to finish the tour. Love it. Worth waiting for.

    Phurin Paina · August 8, 2014
  • Andrew H.

    The Jaws bit of the tour is broken and not expected to be running until late April 2014

    Darul Irwan · January 13, 2014
  • Stacey T.

    It IS bumpy. And dry. And sunny. And hot. ...bring water or a beer with you, and don't forget your sunglasses! You may get a water droplet on you, too.

    Beware of weekends summer of survival at universal studios. Lines are insanely long! Best thing though are the air misters throughout the park. Big +!!!! Suggestion...go during non-summer days

    Erik Venegas · July 14, 2013
  • Jim B.

    I always find the parting of the Red Sea to be the most immersive experience. Doesn't matter which car... ;)

    Jim Barkley · July 7, 2013
  • Marvin A.

    The tour is great. You go through the real places where big movies are shot. The effects are good too. This is a MUST go for everybody.

    Great experience but the old king Kong tour was better back in the early 90's

    Say hello to Norman Bates.

    The tour is great fun! Transformers 3D ride is the best

    Mariann B · June 14, 2013
  • Kurt V.

    If you get Marcellus as tour guide, you're in for a treat. He's been doing this 19 years -- and it shows, he's a great entertainer.

    Kurt Vanderah · June 4, 2013

    65 min line Yikes

    Derek Jones · May 18, 2013

    Best view for King Kong is the middle seat of the very last row of the last car. Most immersive experience!

    Teresa · May 1, 2013
  • Brennan Prill Official

    Great place to show your family how movies are made and attractions. I give this place a 10 star ratting!

    Brennan Prill Official · April 16, 2013

    Hands down the best thing Universal Studios Hollywood has to offer. A MUST SEE! Should be the first stop you make once you enter the park!

    Andrew Pagliughi · April 2, 2013

    First take Transformers and do al at the lower floor. Then take your food in hand and take the line at Studio Tour. Eat in the line.

    If you don't want to get your feet wet then be sure to lift your legs up when you are crossing the bridge by the lake where George is swimming in.

    Long waits. Read the other tips while you're waiting in line. Helps pass the time. Reddit helps too.

  • Bethany

    Ask for Kyle, he's by far the best tour guide. King Kong 360 3D is LEGIT!

    Bethany · November 13, 2012

    The part of KING KONG is AWESOME :))
