On a typical day, the tour will visit several of our backlot exterior sets, sound stages and our some of our extensive production support departments (i.e. Prop, Construction, Post Production Departments, etc). Due to the unpredictable nature of production, we will not know exactly which sets or sound stages will be available for visitation until the tour is in progress.
Q. Will I see celebrities?
A. Warner Bros. Studios is one of the busiest major motion picture and television studios in the world. Our tour is a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse of everyday working life here at the studio so there are always possibilities of seeing key studio personnel, including members of our talent. However, we do not know if you will see celebrities during your tour.
Q. Are tours offered when it is raining?

Q. How should I dress when visiting the Warner Bros. Studios?
A. Comfortable attire is suggested and we recommend that you wear comfortable walking shoes with grip-type soles. Many of the areas that we visit are similar to that of a working construction site so avoid wearing sandals, leather-soled shoes, high heels and open-toe shoes.
