Fun thing to do when in ATL

Nothing overly spectacular, but a fun and interesting tour. Something that you can one time if you have time to kill in downtown Atlanta. Interesting for kids.

Take the VIP tour if possible. There's more access to behind the scenes. Our guide Taylor was informative and enthusiastic. The hour flew by. Great building to visit even if you're not interested in the tour.

The VIP tour was worth the extra $ to get the behind the scenes look at what goes into a program. Learned a lot on the tour and would go again if I'm in the area.

We did not take the Inside Tour but just went inside the CNN tour since we were in the area. The place is quite well built and feels touristy, but at the end of the day - it was just the office / HQ of CNN. Maybe it is fun for people who like media to take the inside tour,... More

Come and check out. You have to get tickets and wait for the tour guide. A place for future news anchor.

If you're a news junkie you'll love it. It goes by quickly so soak it all in or ask questions so you can slow the pace down. Really interesting

Expected much more exposure to broadcast studios. Nice tour guide, good view of newsrooms, but no view at all of a functional studio. Most interesting was imply seeing how CNN headquarters is jammed into a multi-floor, multi-building comples in downtown Atlanta.

Worth a visit just to see the escalator. Really good fun and interesting. Liked seeing behind the scenes . Security staff really nice and allowed us to take a picture of the escalator . If you want a picture make sure take before the tour or it is difficult to get back in .
