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

An interesting tour to get a scoop of behind-the-scene. Go there early in the day ( we took the 5pm tour and got all the empty auditoriums).

Our family of four took this tour as part of our CityPass ticket book. Otherwise, it is not something I would have done. It was interesting to see behind the scenes at CNN but boredom set in after a while. The most exciting moment is riding the escalator to get to the starting point of the tour. It is unbelievably...

It was very informative and gave a glimpse of what it is like to run a 24 hour news channel. We were told that it used to be free but the fee was $15 per person when we visited.

I know more about the process of TV shows including how it is actually lagging 6-9 seconds between the shooting and on air.
