Interesting but expecting more.

Visited with our 5 and 7 year old. We got to see control and production rooms. It was hard for my son to view the exhibits at times. Needs to add more cold oriented content.

Our group (husband & wife in 50s + 16 & 12 yr old girls) was in Atlanta to visit colleges & take a mini vacation (5 nights). We took the basic Inside CNN tour 6/30/2015 @ 1:40 PM after a quick lunch in the CNN Ctr food court. The highlight was the 8 story escalator ride & the mock up... More

Some interesting info, but really the tour should be free of charge. This ticket came with our city pass, so I guess I would say it's worth it with the city pass.

Sunday morning is the worst time to visit CNN HQ, with empty offices and studios. Tour guide tried to keep things lively, but also just wanted to get us through the tour and move onto her next group. The building itself is interesting, a former indoor amusement park converted to CNN headquarters.

The 50 minute tour was worth the time, and my wife and I received a nice discount on the price because we were veterans. I had to score the tour average because our tour guide was very "uninterested" in his presentation. He seemed bored with the information he was giving us.

Educational look at how the news is made and television is produced at CNN. Good tour guide with knowledgable insight to the operation. We enjoyed it.

I went with my sister and niece (11 yo) who were visiting for the week. We had a great time. We ate lunch in the food court then took the tour. Our tour guide was great and it was cool to learn about the different networks that fall under the CNN umbrella. The highlight of the tour was the anchor... More

We visited the CNN Center with a school group in May and came away with a lot of behind the scenes knowledge and a lot of fun. Our group enjoyed watching the people at work and hearing the tidbits our guide shared. I felt the tour was well-paced and our guide was knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour...and remember to... More

My husband and I purchased the City Pass while in Atlanta (do this!!). We took this tour and had an amazing experience! The tour guide was super sweet and very knowledgeable. We loved seeing how the news we watch at home happens in real time. We also really enjoyed our look into the news room. As a Social Studies teacher,... More
