It sounded like a great tour, but we didn't enjoyed it that much. The main reason might be the fact we went on a Sunday morning, we didn't see a live broadcast, and most of the studios were quite empty, so, in my opinion to see a bunch of rooms full of computers or empty studios is not worth the...

It's more for a person interested in the news. Not so much fun for teens. Love the shops in their lobby. Hopefully to be able to see more next time.

Took our college age daughters and pre-teen son. I was surprised by how much they enjoyed seeing the studios and rows and rows of computers. The tour was interesting but feel that it is dated, especially or stop to a newsroom that is no longer used. Could have been better.

Took my grandson on tour (bought the ticket with City Pass, saves money), he is 12 and I was surprised at how much he (and I) enjoyed the tour. It was informative and kept you moving to different parts of CNN broadcasting. You can book ahead time for tour, which I recommend, cool to see a live broadcast. Best to... More

We had some extra time in Atlanta so we decided to try the Inside CNN tour. My expectations were quite low, but boy were they exceeded with this tour. We were able to see most of the workings of producing news broadcasts including viewing live studio broadcasting. The tour lasts under an hour, but the time really flies by. If... More

The tour takes you behind the scenes of CNN. It shows you how everything is broadcasted, it shows you the real studios, and... More

This was a tour that I didn't expect much from but really enjoyed it. Very informative, made all the better seeing some real filming and events taking place. I think our tour guide was Lauren and she did a great job. Took a previous reviews advice and went mid week and it didn't disappoint.

I loved this tour of CNN. Got up close and personal. Food court at the bottom - great. Really crowded around lunch time though.

I did the tour because it was included in the CityPass, and enjoyed it quite a bit. The elevator ride at the start gives you a nice overview of the entire complex, and happens to be a Guinness World Record. The tour basically takes you through the decors and technical studios, as well as the news gathering offices. If you're... More

The CNN Inside Tour is a good tour for 1st time visitors to Atlanta, but the best value by far is the HLN Morning Express Tour. You will have to spend almost $35 more for the privilege of receiving a more in depth tour that last an hour and 45 minutes. The tour is only offered Thursday morning at 8:30... More
