Together with your guide embark on a guided tour of some of the most famous set locations in NYC from both TV and film. You'll see Tiffany’s from Breakfast at Tiffany’s’, the famous fountain from “Friends”, 21 Club from Wall Street, and the the Seinfeld "Soup Nazi" stand, among many others. Along the way, pass showbiz landmarks like CBS headquarters and Radio City Music Hall. You'll never look at the city in the same way again.

The highlight is a visit of the NBC studios — one of America’s most iconic TV studios. Go behind the scenes at their headquarters in Rockefeller Center to get an unprecedented view of their production process.

You get a 360-degree view of the production process and see just how many moving parts it takes to make a single television show.  You also get to film your own 5-minute talk show segment which the producers will email to you when you get home — the perfect souvenir from this all-access 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.

  • Great tour, interesting. Very knowledgeable guide.

  • Porter was very knowledgeable and a great tour guide. Ending with the NBC Studio tour was perfect!

  • Our guide, Porter, was great. Wonderful tour!!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Our tour was fantastic. Will recommend to family and friends.
