Overview
More
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.

This was a fun tour for our group of teens, adults and seniors. The required early checkin was a bit annoying although several in our group bought “treasures” so in some ways it must be worthwhile. The interns did a good job and the tour...More

At $33 a head, the 65 minute tour was just not worth it. We toured on a Sunday at 3:20. We saw the soundstage for Saturday Night Live (which did make my 19 year-old daughter gasp), Jimmy Fallon, and Seth Meyers. The pages who guided...More

The tour was a nice way to learn more about the studios at NBC. Wish we had received a bigger surprise like seeing someone in action while working at NBC.
