This was fun! For those who live outside of NYC, we often forget about the history of a place like NBC. We also often forget about all the shows that are filmed/taped in this building. It was awesome to see things in action! We got...More

With this tour, you do not know which studios you will be able to see but will for sure see 2 (we viewed Nightly News & SNL). Was fun to see all that takes place behind the scenes to make the shows appear effortless. Like...More

This tour is short and sweet, but worth doing. Just getting to walk around and see where they film SNL was worth the ticket price. Got to see them getting the sets ready for a taping the next day. There is a section where the...More

I had done the NBC Tour many years ago so it was great to revisit the updated version. The tour guides are very friendly and helpful. I was really surprised to see how small the Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show theatre was. Definitely worthwhile activity.

Hi there, thanks so much for joining us on your Tour! We're so glad to see you had such a great time - and that you got to see a taping of The Tonight Show as well!

The studios are interesting and the pages who do the tours are fun. It is only one hour which is a little rushed, though. For $30 I expected more from NBC.
