We enjoyed the tour; to us it was worth the money and the time (under an hour). It's a light tour in the sense that while you do get to see a few rooms and a description of what each is for, there is no "food for thought" whatsoever. The highlights of our tour were getting to listen in on the producer's audio channel during a live broadcast, and having Christi Paul wave to us during a commercial break. Lowlights included mandatory posing for photos which they later tried to sell us, and a lack of discussion of CNN as a news organization - I can easily think of a dozen questions off the top of my head that did not get answered.

Definitely not worth it

This is the second time that I've been and I get more and more disappointed every time I go. I ended up going with some family in town but could've just saved the money.

Worth the money

This tour was interesting and informative. Great look at CNN around the world and you really do get to look behind the scenes. My husband and I enjoyed getting to see the news be filmed and broadcast live while we watched from above. The building is fun to look at even if you don't pay to take the tour. We thought it was very worth the money. Young kids might not find it interesting and might be bored on the tour. We would recommend it to people visiting Atlanta. There is a food-cort in the building too if you want to grab lunch while you are there. They seemed to have a lot of food options.

Not worth the money

This tour would be good for children, and might be worth 50 minutes of an adult's time if it were free, but $10 is a huge waste of money. The one interesting thing is being able to stand behing a glass looking down at the newsroom, including watching the anchor reporting. There is no serious attempt to discuss the news process - e.g., the word ""reporter"" doesn't come up once! From the guide, there was a lot of repetition, and discussion of fascinating, important facts like how much the anchors are paid, and whether or not they buy their own clothes (they do).

Could be better I must say, it's all done with the way of ""we are the best"" and cause I'm Dutch [from the Neterlands that is], I will say what is the best, it's just big, not better then other studio's
