Great tour. Loved visiting the set of Saturday Night Live and seeing some of the costumes and props. We arrived late and the staff was very accommodating.

We went to Top of the Rock and were offered to bundle this with the NBC Studio Tour. There was no signage or any indication from the staff that there wouldn't actually be a studio tour. The "Studio Tour" was essentially a tour of Rockefeller Center. It wasn't until the end of the tour that we were told we weren't... More

I've been looking forward to this tour for months now, and when I got there I found out that they are STILL closed for renovations! Seriously disappointed.

Overall enjoyed the tour but could be made more interactive I think and improve. sure, we got to see the studios, stars etc but in the main I didn't leave thinking wow! Jimmy Fallon was recording below us while there and felt they could e.g. expose the studio to allow a view etc. Visited YB 12/12

We were a senior group of 45 touring New York City during the Memorial Day Weekend. We stopped by the NBC Building but did not get a chance to do any touring. What a bummer!Would have been nice if our tour guide booked a tour. Next time we will definitely tour the premises as there are many good reviews from... More

We did a lot of the touristy things in NYC, the NBC tour was one of the better ones. Nice tour of the facilities including where the Tonight Show and SNL are broadcast. Well organized, the guides/interns were funny and informative.

We went through a number of years ago and and LOVED it. I was disappointed that I couldn't take my daughter this time due to reconstruction. If it's bigger and better for the next time we visit then it will be worth the wait.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
