What To Expect
Go behind the scenes of NBC studios in Rockefeller Center, which has consistently produced some of the best television shows in America for more than 80 years.
Recently revised and re-launched, this Tour starts by visiting two of the official production studios, such as the ones where they shoot Saturday Night Live or the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Then it's on to the nerve centers of NBC - the video & audio studios and the control center, where satellite feeds are monitored 24 hours a day. You'll get a 360-degree view of the production process and see just how many moving parts it takes to make a single television show.
Then comes the highlight of the tour: creating your own talk show segment! Everyone in the group gets a job; be it cameraman, host or interviewee. A copy will be sent to you by email afterwards - the perfect keepsake for a unique experience.
Finally, you'll take a guided tour of some of the most famous set locations in NYC from both TV and film. New York City is packed with famous spots, but it's often hard to recognize them in the first place. You'll see Tiffany's from "Breakfast at Tiffany's, the 21 club from "Wall Street" and the Seinfeld Soup Nazi stand, among many others. After you see where they shot some of your favorite scenes, you'll never look at the city in the same way again!
Along the way you'll pass showbiz landmarks like Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall and Studio 54. The tour ends with a bite to eat at the bar used as the model for the one in How I Met Your Mother.
