Maybe I went at wrong time, but the staff was rude, she would get angry if two people asked the same question even though we're a big group and we can't all hear. The tour went by so fast we finished in half an hour, there wasn't a live news show going own and you can't take any pictures inside.

I was beyond disappointed with the CNN tour and the name is very very VERY misleading. It only costs about $16.00 but it should be free! You are basically paying for replicas of everything and to get your picture taking with cutouts of the anchors. First off they are very strict when it comes to the time. I can understand... More

Unlike other attractions in Atlanta, you need to show up on time for the CNN Studio Tour or will be placed in later tours, even when the agent at the ticket counter says the time on your ticket doesn't have to match the time on the board which the agent refers to as an example.

It was an OK visit. I expected much more, all we did was walked through a few pictures, walked through a big window were the studio was and nothing else.

We bring out of town guests here occasionally and they always have a good time. Our most recent visit was no exception. The tour is a bit short and could provide more in-depth information.

This was a nice tour. We were given a glimpse of the working on and behind the scenes of a TV news program.

This was a first studio tour for me and hence everything was new for me. The tour takes around 50min and costs 16$. I visited on a sunday and hence most of the areas- back office, news room were all empty. Photography is not allowed in most of the areas. We can also get a glimpse of the actual studio... More

It's definitely worth it to pay a little extra for the VIP tour. Getting the chance to go behind the scenes was very interesting. I actually wished that the tour length was a little longer. I was disappointed that we couldn't take pictures in certain areas. I understand not in the studio during broadcasting but there were other times when... More

Was looking for something to do. I am not into broadcast journalism but took VIP any way. Not worth the extra money. Stick with the basic tour.
