The tour was very informative, my 10 year old even found in interesting. Our tour had a big group of people in it who were very pushy to be in the front, however, that was no fault of the tour guide. Overall I would recommend this for anyone. The escalator was very cool.

Nice indoor facility to visit with the family. Several places to eat inside and cool things to see. Close to other locations in downtown Atlanta, so be sure to stop by this place while in the area.

I did the VIP tour. I highly recommend the VIP tour becuase it comes with a free photo and it is more in depth than the regular tour. The VIP tour left me want more, I guess I was expecting more. Just a little more. I thought we were going to go inside the HLN stage room, we had to... More

We were sightseeing and decided to go on the CNN tour. Our guide was Nick, who was interesting, witty and informative. We learned a lot about CNN as well as HLN. You may think it would be boring, but not so. There were a couple of times, where the group had to take several flights of stairs, so be ready... More

The tour was decently interesting and it was cool to see the space. The news anchors and workers we ran into were all extremely nice and willing to chat with the people in the tour. The coolest part for me involved a mock set where you can get your picture taken pretending to be a news anchor with your friends,... More

was an interesting tour, a little disappointed the news rooms on Sat do not have many people working in them, slightly difficult to get an idea as to just how hectic and busy it can be.

This tour is not fantastic but it is informative and a good way to spend an hour. Shows the various newsrooms and the equipment used. I was impressed by the "green" screen, never knew how the weather persons pointed at the right spot on the map! This has nothing to do with the news but one of the highlights was... More

Breaking news, CNN: your network is more interesting than this tour lets on. For some reason, the folks at the Inside CNN Studio Tour have decided that all visitors want to see is the physical pieces of the network - here's the Headline News Studio, here's the CNN Espanol Studio . . . There is almost nothing here about the... More

This was my 2nd time doing this tour (did the first several years ago) but this was my daughters first. The tour was great (June 21st 1pm slot) and Wes was a terrific guide. The escalator is a little scary going up but hang on and is worth it all. Worth doing!
