The tour presents an overview of the newsmaking process, by which I mean, you get to look from observation points to see people working. The entry is from an extremely long escalator, and you can purchase photos of your group behind a CNN desk. There is a mock up of a newsroom, teleprompter and green screen. Unless there is something intense happening, there is not too much action that you will see.
Good tour, especially if you've never been to a TV studio before.

This is very clearly a cash grab. You do not get to go behind the scenes, see any studios or really see much of anything. Take my word for it. Go into the building, snap a few photos on your own and save your money for something else. Waste of time and money.

I have worked in journalism in the past so it was a given to make the trip and tour CNN while in Atlanta, GA. This one of a kind tour gives you a great behind the scenes look at how national news is broadcast-ed and the work that goes on to make sure a quality program. The tour was fun and very informative. The studio was a great place to wrap up and buy gear. Highly recommend next time you are in Atlanta... and no you don't have to be into "the news" to enjoy.

The CNN tour in Aatlanta is well worth the walk! Located adjacent to the Atlanta OMNI hotel,it's an informative real time look at how CNN brings the news to us. The tour guides are knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour lasts approximately one hour and there is walking involved. They have a seperate tour that is wheelchair accessable. If you are interested at all in the news, I think the tour is a must for you.

Great value for the money. Wonderful knowledgable guides. If you have always wanted to know "how do they do that?" this is definitely the tour for you.
And if you like somewhat affordable souvenirs be sure to check out the store.
