The first and most famous studio tour in television history is now better than ever. It's more in depth. More interactive. And, above all, more fun. You’ll enjoy behind-the-scenes access to the studios where your favorite shows are made. Like Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and more. An NBC Page will serve as your host and behind-the-scenes expert, guiding you through the historic halls of 30 Rock. You’ll learn about the entire TV production process, from the writing process and producing to the ways TV content gets to your home. You’ll then experience it all first hand as you and your fellow Tour guests produce your own show in our brand new Tour Studio. You can then download your show to keep for free.

After having just visited LA and experienced some excellent tours and behind the scenes experiences, this was quite disappointing. Although the NBC pages on our tour were very nice and friendly, the tour seemed extremely rehearsed and inauthentic. Some parts of the tour were quite...More

Even though we live abroad my wife is a television addict so this was the highlight of her time in NY. it was very well organised, great pages (tour guides in Layman's terms). full of history and tidbits that every television fan will enjoy.

I have no idea, but if you're close to NBC Studios, stop in the store. If there are any extra tickets, they have them. And you may be lucky enough to get free tickets to Seth Myers or Jimmy Fallon Monologue rehearsal.
