It's a wonderful opportunity getting to know how a national studio operates from the inside.
The talk show we made at the end of the tour was really the highlight of my trip to New York.Lots of fun!

Porter, our NYC. guide was fabulous. She was very professional and was well stocked with anecdotes and photos to enhance our trip through television and movie history. We also walked past many landmarks which Porter made very interesting with her knowledge of the city. Our tour of NBC studios was wonderful too. We highly recommend this tour. We're from New York and learned a great deal.

Porter was our tour guide. She was great. She really knew her stuff. We started out with the NBC studios tour. I took the NBC studios tour about 13 years ago. Since then, they've updated it. We had a lot of fun. We had 8 people on our tour, which was the perfect size. We were also a lively bunch and we had fun with Porter. Because our tour was on a Saturday morning, we didn't see any celebrities, however, we did see the crew setting up the sets for Saturday Night Live. We went into the Jimmy Fallon studio, saw SNL studio and Lester Holt's Nightly News studio. During our tour we all together got to make a 2 minute video as if we were putting on a talk/entertainment show. We had more fun watching it. After we finished inside 30 Rock, we headed out on a walking tour. Porter gave us all earphones for us to listen to her talk. We walked around midtown Manhattan visiting different locations where different shows or parts of movies were filmed. We went into Trump Tower, Tiffany's, the Plaza Hotel and other locations. I recommend this tour. We had a lot of fun.

Had an amazing walking tour despite the bad weather we had on our booked date. Porter, our guide, did an amazing job at showing us various filming locations and providing plenty of information throughout the whole tour :

Nice tour but when I booked it I thought it was only at 30 Rock. It started there and walked to Central Park stopping along the way at Trump Tower, Tiffany's and the Plaza Hotel. Tour guide Porter was awesome!!!

La visite des studio de NBC était juste géniale ! On a pu voir les coulisses et même tourner notre propre émission. Alison, notre guide était aussi super, elle nous a raconté plein d'anecdotes et elle est très gentille. Je recommande vivement cette visite !

This was a good tour. it was a walking tour and unfortunately, it was very hard to hear the guide. If this has tour had utilized headphones, it would have been one of my favorites.

The tour was great. I would recommend that headphones be used as it is a little difficult to hear. Other than that it was an amazing tour.

This tour was good but the price is a bit high for what you get.

It is basically two parts each lasting about an hour - part one is a walking tour down 5th Ave. which is operated by Walks of New York and part two is The Tour at NBC Studios obviously run by NBC. Overall, you can think about it like paying for two tours in one.

For the walking tour, our tour guide was really friendly and conducted the tour well. The walking tour met at Pulitzer Fountain and after a brief intro took us for a walk down a busy 5th Ave down - stops included the SE corner of Central Park, the Plaza Hotel 58th St, Tiffany's The Tiffany Diamond, Trump Tower 57th St., Rockefeller Center 50th St. and finally to 30 Rock. They offer fun trivia and factoids about NYC film and TV shows but if you are already a film and TV fanatic then you should already know a good amount of it.

Once arriving at 30 Rock, our walking tour guide checked our group into the official Tour at NBC Studios and we were then officially handed off to the NBC pages who conduct the Studio tour. The tour included a film introduction and then looks at the Art Deco rotunda, the NBC Nightly News studio 3C, the SNL studio 8H, the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon studio 8G plus the Muppet Pipes and finally the NBC Production Gallery. The Studio tour is definitely the highlight especially seeing the studio 8H for me but no pictures or videos are allowed to be taken which is too bad. However, at the end of the tour, they got the entire group to film a short mock talk show in the Tour Studio of which they send you via email. It should also be noted here that If you only want to do the NBC tour then you can book directly with NBC online too.

Overall, the entire two part tour was a good experience if not the best value.

Was very interesting tour, loved it that we could go into the Plaza Hotel and walked around. Very interesting facts were learnt on the tour.
NBC tour was quite interesting and informative.
Guide was interesting too.

Jeff our guide was great! Rainy day and a parade in the middle of the tour and he did a great job under those circumstances. The NBC tour was a BIG disappointment. Got to see SNL, Meyers and Kelly studio and make a little video....but not the Fallon studio or any news desks. Fallon was the reason we booked a tour and the only studio we didn't get to see. I would book this tour on a weekend as apparently they have more studios to see because they are not filming.
