We expected more from this tour. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly, but all we did was look through large sections of glass at people working at their desks and computers. It just seemed no different than what you would see if you looked behind a glass at any random office.

This was disappointing. My family of 5 took this tour as part of the 5 attractions with the Atlanta City Pass. For a place full of creativity, writers, editors, and news deliverers, this was awfully dull. I may as well have thrown my money in the trash can. This tour should not even be included as part of the Atlanta... More

The most exciting part was the really tall freestanding escalator. All they do is take you to see some of the studios where they broadcast the news. Maybe it was the time we took the tour, but there was nothing going on. Most of tour was spent walking in hallways and stairwells.

My Wife and I took the Behind The Scenes VIP tour. Quite a bit pricier than the non-VIP tour but we had a good time. What we liked best about the VIP tour is that you are actually taken into the newsrooms, studios, and control rooms, rather than just viewing from the outside. We took the tour on a Saturday...

Very interesting. Not for little ones. Tour guide gives you a lot of information. Very educational. Cool to see the behind the scenes action and know how the news is produced.

Took the VIP tour and we were in the studio and on live TV on the "The Daily Share" Saw the back room of the news. We loved going up the longest unsupported escalator. Enjoyed the whole tour! Fun way to spend a couple of hours! $35 for VIP tour and it was worth it.

We took friends to the tour and found it to be very interesting. The long elevator up as a bit scary for me but it goes quickly! This is an adult oriented tour...children would find it boring!

This is a nice little tour of what CNN does. Lots of walking. They show a little bit of everything. One complaint, you are limited to actually looking through the window of a studio would have been nice to go in and stand in one that wasn't inuse.

I loved going up the long elevator to the CNN tour. It was interesting to see the newsroom and see how CNN works. Not for younger children. I enjoyed it.
