Chad Meyer, wether, was even nive... More

Fantastic close up & informative tour. We had previously done the standard tour which is excellent too. The guides are great. You get a close up of the technology and the studios. We did it on a weekend when some studios are empty. It might be better on a week-day? But we loved it. My daughter was taken ill on... More

The CNN Studio tour is a great past time for anyone staying at the Omni Hotel or anyone visiting Atlanta in general. The tour is about one hour long, only $15, and gives you an in depth look at how the news is broadcasted. Addison was my guide for the tour. He was amazing! Friendly, engaging, and seemed to enjoy...

My husband and I toured this today. It was near to see how the behind the scenes works in the CNN broadcasting world. Even let people volunteer to do a mock broadcast.

Would definitely recommend booking your tour ahead of time. We purchased a City Pass online and upgraded to the VIP Tour. City Pass also offered a coupon for an additional $5 off per person. All tours were otherwise sold out on the Saturday we visited. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgable. The VIP Tour starts with a photo behind... More

As a fan of CNN, I wanted to take an inside tour of the CNN Center when I visited Atlanta. The entire center is massive spanning several floors with a food court and adjacent Omni Hotel. Security is tight and expect security check-points especially for visitors looking to do the tour. This is an attraction that shouldn't be missed when... More

Our tour leader could have been a robot with a tape recorder installed. Not inspired and much to be desired for a wonderful setting and potentially excellent tour.
