Hollywood Insider Studio & Filming Location Tour 

The most comprehensive, professional, behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood!

Who better than to give you the most in-depth, fact-filled Hollywood tour than someone who has literally written the book on Hollywood!

Noted author Steven Bingen, your tour guide for this amazing journey, has penned books chronicling the histories of Warner Brothers, MGM Studios and Paramount, as well as lectured extensively on show business and its stars, and consulted and contributed to numerous documentaries, articles and books, all on the entertainment industry.  As a former archivist and executive VIP tour guide at Warner Bros., he brings the unique perspective of a show business insider to every tour.

Steven will take you literally behind the scenes and figuratively back in time as you visit over 40 Los Angeles filming locations, from recent hits films to beloved classics, from the grit to the glamour, from back alleys to backlots. Learn how and where the films were made and the true stories of the stars who made them.

You’ll never think of the movies, or of Hollywood, the same way again.
