Great tour of NBC. The pages were alot of fun and very knowledgable. Book your tickets ahead of time because they are often sold out. This tour runs about an hour. Attached to the subway, making it very easy to get to.

We took the NBC Studio tour and we're so glad we did. Small tour group so it was manageable, very informative. Bright 'pages' lead the tour which takes about an hour and 15 min. The tour takes you to the sets of SNL, Jimmy Fallon...More

Very cool to see the studios for SNL, Tonight Show, and the Evening News. And we got to see the Muppet Pipes too. The Tonight Show Studio is surprisingly compact. The end of the tour has you making a video of The Tonight Show featuring...More

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

I purchased tickets online and got an email receipt. I didn't get anything to print out though. Does anyone know if it's important to have a print out, or can I just show up and get my tickets at Will Call?

Check the email receipt. There's a PDF attachment that has the tickets with the names of each individual you listed for the tour. You need to print those.
New York Pass Hi all! Heading to NYC next week - does the NY Pass include the NBC Studio Tour? The NY Pass book doesn't refer to it but old reviews on these forums refers to it!! Thanks a mill

I don't know either...but I dont' think it's on the 'pass'. but it's well worth it. We got our tickets the day of the tour.
When I visited NYC in 2009, I did the NBC Studio Tour using my New York Pass. Does anyone know if the New York Pass still covers this tour? I'd really like to take my husband when we return to NYC in May.

It's no longer on the New York pass. You must buy separately.
