Easily the best way to see Universal Studios Hollywood. Our guide Lary could not have been better and we were able to see the entire park, including walking the park an hour before general entry, behind the scenes props and sets, and without ever feeling rushed. We skipped the line on every ride available, attended all of the major shows, and still had time to explore on our own multiple times. Additionally, upon arrival, you are provided breakfast and are served a buffet lunch only open to VIPs where you will likely interact with Universal characters. If you have children and the means, this is easily the best way to see the park and keep your sanity

An excellent way of seeing all Universal City offers away from the crowds. Good to bypass the queues and enjoyed the VIP lunch.

Our guide Angela for the Universal VIP Experience was fabulous! So informative, considerate and made our experience great! She even stayed with our group later to be sure we got on the Harry Potter ride! VIP room was great! VIP buffet lunch was awesome!

This was one of the high lights of our holiday. We arrived at 8 am and dident have to wait ,went straight in as with all the attractions and dident leave till 9.30 pm.Fantastic day. Cara the tour guide was amazing. she was so funny and such a happy person , nothing was to much trouble. If you dont want to wait 2 hours for the rides and attractions I would recommend this tour. we saw sooo much more than buying a normal ticket. The food was to die for too.

Our family had a wonderful VIP experience! Our guide was Robert A. and he made it a very special day for everyone in our group. From the back-lot tour to the private, front of the line escort for all rides/attractions, it is a day we will never forget!

It was great from the valet parking, free breakfast and lunch which was wonderful to the very end of the day. Our guide Tony could not have been better as he was very knowledgeable. It was great not standing in line, but getting right on rides with front row seats for shows. The VIP pass was worth every penny.

We booked this trip for our son's 21st and although it was expensive was well worth it. Starting off with breakfast and meeting our guide for the day and rest of group. Our guide Donna was amazing and for 7hours she guided us to the best rides and shows with no queuing. Lunch was to die for (buffet style) with so much choice. We had free time for the last 2hours of park opening to revisit rides or try new ones.
