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.

This tour was really not very interesting. The NBC pages leading the tour were enthusiastic but not particularly knowledgeable about much other than "this is the SNL studio", "this is the Jimmy Fallon studio". We saw two studios and a control room. I have to...More

Our tour guides were friendly ... There just wasn't that much to see in three empty studios. If they would have added a personality meet & greet, it would have been more fun.

This is billed as a one hour tour but more than half that time is used up watching an overlong NBC highlights reel and then going through an airport-like security point. Teenagers and younger will not recognize much from the highlights. I am not a...More

When we visited we were able to see the set for Dr. Oz and Saturday Night Live. We were given alot of interesting information and were able to ask questions about the shows. You need a reservation for this one so plan ahead.

Our tour guide told us that usually on Saturday they are prepping for the show so you cannot visit the set (albeit you can look through a window)...thus, sunday would be a better day!
