The CNN tour is fantastic for the money. You get to learn the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes. Wear a green shirt to increase your chances of getting selected for the weather green screen demonstration. I highly recommend this tour.

It was great having a peek into the CNN studio's and where it all happens from. The staff at the ticket sales office were very friendly and helpful and so was the guide. It was very informative although it would have been great to see a live broadcast.
