Description:

The first and most famous studio tour in television history is now better...

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.

GO to NBC tour

If you have time go to NBC Tour. You get to see some SETs they tape on ! It's very interesting and you get to make a short video at the end.

We really really enjoyed this experience. My 10 year old loved it as well. The tour was an hour long and the NBC pages were very knowledgeable and professional I highly recommend that you buy tickets in advance because it sells out. The tour ends with your group making a video. It was super fun and within an hour we... More

We really enjoyed this tour which takes about an hour to complete. You get to see the architecture of the building and I particularly liked being able to see the grandeur of the auditorium from the top/back of the building whilst a show was on.

Shame, shame, shame NBC - the whole tour just reeks 'tourists, give us your money'. Our 'Pages' did a great job trying to make it better, but for the money, they could have showed us more; a real disappointment. I only gave it two stars because the 'interactive' part of the tour was the only positive thing about it. We... More

This is a very nice tour if you are interested in the behind the scenes workings of some favorite TV shows. I learned a lot and enjoyed the pages we had. They were both knowlegeable and patient with everyone's questions. It was fun to create our own TV talk show at the end.

My daughter is interested in movie production. I booked it thinking it sounded like fun. It was great. We were in line to check in at the NBC gift store and were given two tickets to Seth Myers monologue rehearsal. It worked perfectly with the end of our tour. We had lunch by the ice rink and went back for... More

I am lucky to have my niece to work at NBC for the Roseen show and give me and my family and tour of the studios. I was amazed to be inside the news world and visited different sets and also be able to pretend to be doing the news.

I enjoyed the tour of the NBC Studios very much! I have a passion for media history and it doesn't get any better than NBC Studios in the heart of Manhattan!

The NBC studio tour is a must do for anyone who's watched SNL for 40 years. The other stages were interesting, but the SNL stage was what made it worthwhile. What fun!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
