It's a big place. Cool to look at for a few minutes. Then the glamour passes and it gets old relatively quickly. Just a big business really.

This was an informative tour. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It was cool to see how news stories are followed and put together. We were able to see Robin Meade on set.

CNN is more than just English news. They even have a Spanish CNN. Cartoon Network and others. Ted Turner's brilliant idea is amazing to learn how it all comes together. A lot of steps if that is a factor. As a news junkie, I liked it. If you are disappointed, you just think everything is easy when its not. Very... More

I was excited to go on the CNN tour and it was not as entertaining as I expected. We just walked through a few rooms and hear about how many networks and shows they have. We couldn't do the behind the scenes VIP tour because my daughter was not old enough. Perhaps that one will be more informative.

There was nothing to write home about. You took the allegedly world's longest escalator to a mock podium, where you had the option to hold a microphone and act as a reporter and have your picture taken (at the end of the tour, you can purchase this for $40). Then you walked past some newsroom and saw some presentation, then... More

This was a behind the scenes tour of CNN. We learned a lot about what they do. Lots of stairs on the way down, be prepared. No filming or photography allowed behind the scenes.

We bought the city pass and wanted to make the most of it. This tour was well done and interesting...but it's not what I would call a must see and not something I would pay to do again.

Must compliment CNN for having devised this tour that takes their popularity even higher. Tour starts with the world's tallest escalator. There is fun photograph which transforms you to a news anchor :) The guides enthusiastically show you places and studios, though it was disappointing not to see any known anchor / program host. Understand one has to come for... More

This was just a generic tour. Very superficial and nothing too in depth or exciting. They show you a mock studio and the newsroom and keep things moving.
