Believe it or not, Paramount is the last major studio to keep its headquarters located in Hollywood—and the only one there to open its doors to the public. Inside the famous wrought iron gate, you’ll be treated to a guided tram tour through soundstages and a sizable New York backlot. An extended tour adds in a trip to the archives and an on-location lunch. Look out for seasonal editions, like a Halloween one that includes a tour of the neighboring Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
