I love watching CNN! The trip had lots of great places to take pictures. The only reason we went inside was because there was no line honestly. There are just lots of gift shops to buy things

The tour was silly. We had the "VIP tour" which still did not have access to any studio or meet anyone. In fact the tour did not even cover CNN studios - it had an outside look at the HLN studios. The guide was poor and it is NOT worth the price of admission. Please AVOID. You can get better... More

It's always cool to see the behind the scenes on something so widely known. I went on a weekend with no breaking news and it still was very interesting to see the studios.

Out of town guests were visiting and we decided to do the CNN tour. I had been on the tour years ago and found it interesting. The tour is similar but tickets have gone up considerably. I found the tour pretty informative but very rushed with the guide moving people through very quickly. The guide was professional but removed and... More

I thought this place was awesome. You're very near the Olympic Center in Atlanta, so make sure and stop there on your way into the CNN building. I highly recommend the tour, as you get to see a ton of behind the scenes spots in CNN.

The tour was interesting and took you through the studios, as well as the headquarters building. We did get to see a live broadcast and learn the way anchors and staff gets the news on the air. It is $15 for the tour, but there are VIP options as well.

This tour was a wonderful tour to undeerstand what goes into the broadcast of the news. It is especially informative in understanding what has to take place to present breaking news, and it highlights the number of people needed to present the news.

The tour was quite informative and "good", except that it was hurried probably because of security reasons. Was expecting to tour the studio (at least one of the studio), and maybe see a live broadcast (even behind a glass or something), but there was none. Suggestion to CNN, you should provide more for the tour price.

The inside of the building is something to see, the interior of the building is adjacent to the Omni Hotel, it is wide open. Look straight up you can see all the hotel rooms and the newsrooms of CNN. It also has the worlds longest escalator, which you will take up 8 stories. The tour itself was rather bland, but... More
