Not bad or fantastic tour get to see the studios with news room at HLN and CNN. Won't meet any on air persons. Gives you a perspective of the "on air" process. Large facility with lots of commercialism, focusing on the gift shop. Much better than regular tour since you see the actual news rooms. See a actual broadcast live.... More

This tour could be so much more exciting! The best part is riding the long escalator to the top floor. No action was seen. No memorabilia. Boring speech. Don't waste your money!

This was a fun tour for my teen who wants to be a journalist. She loved seeing the studios and the behind the scenes. They do a good job of explaining and showing how things work. Of course you get dropped off at the end in the gift shop.

Daniel was very energetic and informative. A budding success himself! Took the kids and learned a lot about how it works behind the scenes. We also go to meet 2 anchors during the midday show HLN. Jasmin and Michelle, I think! I'm normally not watching TV during the middle of the day so I didnt recognize them but the kids... More

This tour was okay. The lady who took our tour was bubbly and nice. The lady taking the photos at the start was super abrupt and not a joy to encounter. The tour was quite short - I think it was less than the 50 mins advertised. The most interesting bit is when you go up to the top studio... More

The tour is way too short. You feel like it's over right after it started (only difference is that by that time, you'll be $15 less rich).

This was much better than I expected. A really interesting look at how the news is delivered to you and includes watching a live broadcast. They make it look easy but it's prettying involved. This is a huge complex and also offers a pretty good cafeteria where you can enjoy a bite to eat.

I did the CNN Studio Tour on Friday, January 29, 2016. This tour was fair. Most places photos were not allowed. We couldn't go into the rooms where the news sets were. There is a large food court there though.

I found it very interesting and we had an excellent tour guide that knew her stuff. Would recommend the VIP Tour, you get a little more.

You don't get to see a lot of the "real" CNN on the tour, but it is interesting and you'll learn about how they gather the news and present it.
