Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The first and most famous studio tour in television history is now better than ever. It's more in depth. More interactive. And, above all, more fun. You’ll enjoy behind-the-scenes access to the studios where your favorite shows are made. Like Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and more. An NBC Page will serve as your host and behind-the-scenes expert, guiding you through the historic halls of 30 Rock. You’ll learn about the entire TV production process, from the writing process and producing to the ways TV content gets to your home. You’ll then experience it all first hand as you and your fellow Tour guests produce your own show in our brand new Tour Studio. You can then download your show to keep for free.

I have been to Rockefeller Center numerous times but never did the NBC Studio Tour. This time I decided to do it and I am so glad I did. It is really interesting to see the studios where your news and television shows are recorded. What was so surprising was how small the studios are compared to what they look like on television. I guess that is the magic and beauty of television. The tour is approximately 90 minutes and I think well worth it.

Excellent and fun tour, a must when in NYC. Really liked seeing the Saturday Nite Live stage. Love the Art Deco building.

I found this was soo much fun. I had been the NBC studios multiple times before standby tickets for Saturday Night Live when I lived in New York City, but when doing that you see nothing of the studios beyond being escorting into and out of Studio 8H. This gives you the chance to see more of the studios and other locations as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and the entire experience at NBC. Before the tour we were in the NBC store and were given standby tickets to Jimmy Fallon and ended up getting in. I can't wait to go back and do it all again someday.

Takes about 70 minutes and you get to see what it is like to be in a television studio. You get to walk around Rockefeller (guided) If you go on the right day and time you might see someone famous walking the halls. You also get to see the Saturday night live theater and see how small it really is. Nice experience into the television world.
