Australian visitors can get closer to the entertainment they love and see how movie magic is created behind the lens by touring one of the busiest working studios in Hollywood.

Australian travellers, one of the largest and most important markets for the Studio Tour, can now add the attraction as part of their holiday package in a single transaction.

The new product offering adds to the travel group’s wholesale Infinity Holidays portfolio, where all agents in the Flight Centre network will have access to the Studio’s full breadth of tour experiences listed below.

Studio Tour

The three-hour Studio Tour, led by friendly tour guides on a bespoke tram holding up to 14 guests, includes visits to various areas throughout a real working Hollywood studio, including: backlot sets and soundstages; the Warner Bros. Archive, currently showcasing DC Universe: The Exhibit on the first floor and Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts Exhibits on the second floor; the Batcave, home to some of Batman’s most famous picture cars; and concludes at Stage 48: Script to Screen, an interactive soundstage that offers guests the unique opportunity to explore the full film and television production process firsthand.

Classics Made Here Tour

The Classics Made Here Tour starts with a champagne toast to the classics, featuring specially trained guides that focus on Warner Bros.’ timeless film and TV shows from the early days of the Studio through the 1970s.

The total experience for this tour lasts up to three-and-a-half hours for both the guided and self-guided portions.

Deluxe Tour

The Deluxe Tour offers the ultimate Hollywood experience with a five-hour tour inclusive of all the elements of the traditional Studio Tour, plus complimentary breakfast in the Deluxe Tour Lounge, exclusive access to the Warner Bros.’ costume and property departments, and lunch at the Studio’s fine dining restaurant where producers, executives, actors, writers, and more discuss their latest projects.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood has partnered with the Australian representation firm, APTMS, to support the new business channel through training sessions and a dedicated webinar tailored to the Flight Centre Group.
