brief but ok

CNN tour is ok. But many more interesting and in depth questions were not answered by the tour guide. A group of 40 people with one tour guide is not enough.

Great food court in the center. Took the studio tour and was given insight to how the news reaches our TV at home. Very informative. Not for little ones though. School age ok.

We had a nice 1 hour visit to CNN and ate a quick lunch, watching our time. As we approached our car in the Central Parking lot across from CNN, a guy was booting our car! We said we were about 3-5 minutes late (if that) to no avail. Our bill was $75.00!!!!! Unbelievable. Even $20 I might have understood.... More

We bought the combo ticket at Coca Cola and headed to CNN first. We got in the long tour line and it was only when the tour guide was ready to take the group that she told us we needed to trade in our tickets in for CNN tickets which mean't getting into another long line. We weren't the only... More

Visited as part of the Atlanta City Pass, we were there for about an hour on a Monday. For the time we spent, it was ample to get an overview of CNN and how the business runs. We even got to see Brooke Baldwin reporting a segment (then saw her on CNN at the airport). Enjoyed our tour guide Nikko….Very... More

It was part of the Atlanta City Pass so we took the tour. It's something that you will want to do once. It's in the same area as the Aquarium and World of Coke, so you can park and do these in combination.

Was educational as well as just plain interesting to see where it happens and how. There was some interactive role playing. If you have Military ID (US or Canadian it's free). Has of course a gift shop.

The tour was interesting, but I didn't see anything that was different from the free tour of the news station in my hometown. The tour guide was very friendly, but the tour felt rushed. The 55 minute tour lasted only 50 minutes - perhaps because there were no questions from the group. But it did feel as though we were... More

The tour was a total waste of time and money. You didn't get to see anything! Definitely would NOT recommend. Best part was taking the escalator up 8 flights. It was a waste of an attraction on the City Pass.

My wife and I attended the CNN walking tour. The tour was interesting, however, we felt extremely rushed and hurried throughout the entire tour. $15 per person seemed like a lot of money to be moved like cattle from studio to studio.
