The tour is only $15 per person, $14 if you are staying at the Omni and swing by the concierge on your way down. You tour the building, see the offices, learn the history, etc. I was interested in the subject and was not disappointed, and have also taken the 30 Rock tour in New York and found the CNN... More

After reading reviews, I was unsure if we should tour CNN, but my husband and I were so glad we did. Having a Journalism degree, seeing the news rooms both domestic and international and Headline News was fascinating. Our tour guide was excellent! And riding up the long escalator was a lot of fun, too. Lots of security and visitors... More

You would be well advised to opt for the VIP tour as opposed to the regular tour. Much smaller groups (12 as opposed to 40+). Consequently, you can visit areas not accessible to larger groups. Our guide (Shannon) was very nice and made sure to answer any question the group might have. We reserved our tickets three days ahead of... More

The facility is very nice and the tour is about what you would expect. Recommended. The tour guide was a little annoying at times but answered questions well. Several fast food restaurants inside. The largest world news organization, exceeding the BBC and New York Times in reach and impact. It was said CNN would not last when CNN started in... More

The CNN Studio Tour is quite interesting to get a glimpse of how some of CNN programming is done. Atlanta is the world HQ, but there are other CNN locations around the world. You get taken through certain areas of production. You can see from behind an overhead glass area where a large number of writers and journalists prepare the... More

If it comes as a package, go, but I didn't think it was worth the price. Also it takes an hour and 20mins is the escalator and the steps down. You see into 6 rooms, 2 studios and others research.

This is a good tour for those fans of CNN and would like to know how they do it. The guide is very good informed and will explain a lot of good things and curiosities. I wasn't lucky because needed to go during the weekend and that is definitely not the best time to go, go during the week and... More

This tour was very expensive and they told you where you could take pictures. You could see just as much as you see on tv. It would be better if we had just walked around the building and not took the tour.

My wife and I did the Morning Express tour. It did not disappoint. The tour guide was knowledgeable and it was really interesting watching them in the control room, making decisions on the fly and seeing how it translates onto the show with Robin. It's very much a team effort and they are fun to watch. Also saw Robin Meade... More
