You start this tour in a hallway with random NBC memorabilia, I particularly liked the Coneheads stuff. The tour I went on didn't go through the SNL set, I was looking forward to that part. We then went through some news sets which were pretty cool because they were actively filming. Overall it was a pretty good tour, just wish... More

This tour is probably more exciting for Americans who actually know the shows of the sets you see on the tour. We don't get SNL or Jimmy Fallon in Australia so it wasn't as exciting for us to see the sets which left us slightly disappointed. We couldn't actually go onto the SNL set because they were painting it so... More

My girlfriend and I visited some time ago, and I had tickets to the NBC Studio Tour. Some of it was just okay, interesting factoids along the way. The highlight for us as SNL fans and music geeks was being able to see the SNL band warming up around noon on a Saturday morning. Long day for those guys! I'm... More

My fiance and I visited the studio tour together because I've always wanted to go. I was not disappointed. The tour guides are very, VERY knowledgeable and friendly. The coolest part of the tour was probably seeing the SNL studio. I think we paid $30 a ticket but it was definitely worth it, and we reserved our spots online easily.

You can't go to New York City without touring NBC. NBC studios is a big part of the America media world! You name it, it's filmed there. From the tonight show, to Saturday Night Live, to Football Night in America, it goes down at NBC. The tour was pretty neat to me, you get to behind the scenes and where... More

I have been to Rockefeller Center numerous times but never did the NBC Studio Tour. This time I decided to do it and I am so glad I did. It is really interesting to see the studios where your news and television shows are recorded. What was so surprising was how small the studios are compared to what they look... More

I found this was soo much fun. I had been the NBC studios multiple times before standby tickets for Saturday Night Live when I lived in New York City, but when doing that you see nothing of the studios beyond being escorting into and out of Studio 8H. This gives you the chance to see more of the studios and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and the entire experience at NBC. Before the tour we were in the NBC store and were given standby tickets to Jimmy Fallon and ended up getting in. I can't wait to go back and do it all again someday.

Takes about 70 minutes and you get to see what it is like to be in a television studio. You get to walk around Rockefeller (guided) If you go on the right day and time you might see someone famous walking the halls. You also get to see the Saturday night live theater and see how small it really is.... More
