On this tour, you spend at least as much time moving from stop to stop as you do being given information. The information you do get is superficial, and in many cases it simply serves to promote CNN (eg, how many households it reaches, how...More

Visited Atlanta for the day and was in the CNN building so thought we would give the studio tour a go. $15 dollars for an adult ticket bought on the day seemed very reasonable. Had a decent length tour of the studio. Was a shame...More

The tour itself was informative as was Molly, our guide. The tour seemed shorter than expected, and very "generic." I enjoyed viewing the photos taken of us at the start of the tour, but the package was very expensive - and who needs a ton...More

From the Front Desk to the Tour guide each employee was a delight. I’m not quite sure of the timing and when to go but during my 11am tour I saw the studio in full swing. It was the day of when our President declared...More

This tour gives you a good understanding for the inner workings of TV broadcasting. But don't expect any news anchor celebrity sightings. They're in NYC.

If you want to know what it feels like to be in a US prison...this will be the perfect tour. The first thing you do is go through security. I imagine that they would do the same when you enter prison. The security team treats...More

If you have never seen a broadcast station, it is ok to pay $15 for a 50-60 min tour. The building itself is quite ugly with even worse selection of cheap eats inside, why can’t they put something remotely modern hip and fun like Ponce...More

This is a waste of $15 of your money and 45 minutes of your time. The first 20 minutes of the tour consists of going through security and get your picture taken so they can try to sell it to you later. After this you...More

The escalator ride of about seven stories that ended up at the start of the tour was pretty amazing. The 10:00 news show was being broadcast and we were able to see how it is done. We could actually watch the production of the news....More
