The tour was informative but can be improved. It is not child friendly and is standing, walking and climbing stairs for about a hour. I did the guest news spot at the end and had a great time. That was lots of fun and I have me doing the news recorded. That was the best part. The gift shop is... More

Waste of time and money. Outside of the Braves gear it was like going to your local mall on black Friday. Rather take a beating that go back!

While waiting for our VIP tour, we saw a large tour group arrive and be escorted for their tour--huge group. We had only 8 people with our guide and security officer and so got to see and hear very well and ask more questions. The VIP also takes you inside the studios. You start by going up the escalator which... More

I took the tour this afternoon. They leave every 20 minutes and cost $16. The tour begins with a long escalator ride up several stories, followed by a short film and listening to control room audio. Then you slowly make your way down all of the levels via stairs. You just be able to go down a lot of stairs... More

Interesting (for the most part) tour however it felt more like an attraction at a themepark rather than a genuine tour. The only look at the studios were through small windows. The tour has a little something for everyone however I wouldn't recommend it for smaller kids. The coolest part, in my mind, was watching the production feed and seeing... More

This tour provides a good deal of information for those who are curious about what happens behind the scenes to bring the news to the public. Younger children may not appreciate the tour but I recommend it for older children and adults. However, be prepared to go up and down quite a few stairs throughout the tour.

The visit requires a lot of up and down stairs, take this forecast for your visit. The atrium of the building is nice and have a lot option to eat.

We were really looking forward to this tour having travelled from the UK. The guide was simply reading a script and going through the motions. She looked over the balcony, barely looked at the group and had little interest in what she was saying. Having just been to the World Of Coca Cola beforehand and then to CNN, the guide... More

If you are interested in news, journalism, or TV, this might be interesting. If not, you wasted $16 and an hour of your life. The young tour guide was knowledgeable and did his best to convey information, but it never grabbed me. First, you take a long escalator ride… apparently the longest floating/supportless (they had a term) in either US,... More
