The tour guide lost her voice and she knew her information. However, since the job requires talking, I believe it would have been best to have a host who didn't lose their voice. Overall, it went well!

A life-long "news junkie", I could not wait to visit CNN upon arriving in Atlanta to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. We scheduled a tour and our tour guide Patrick Martin, could not have been more informed or entertaining. We recommend a visit to CNN to any and all visitors to the Atlanta area, Thank you.

Not as much to see of actual broadcasting as expected. It appeared that all of the live productions were coming from NY or elsewhere.
Very nice!

We had a very informative tour guide, who was very funny. The history of the building and how the inner workings of how news is brought to the public was interesting. It's just a short, 50 minute tour. I truly enjoyed myself. Thanks Matthew
Good Tour

I enjoyed the tour by Mike however it would have been very nice and worth all the walking if we had seen the broadcasting in action or at least one anchor. I took my best friend on the tour because all she does is watch CNN 24 hours a day and knows all the anchors on a first name basis.
So so

Nothing very compelling. Focus too much on technology and nothing about the news reporters. Not good value for money
It's too restrictive and short tour.

It's too restrictive and short tour. I'm not satisfied the tour. They showed us just 3 spot. Price is too high.

Not a great tour, was not worth the money. Did not see much of anything, and would not recommend going.
