i prefer the nbc studio tour 5/3/2008

i went to nyc for the week with my school, so i was mostly with friends but the radio city hall was really tiring! i'm really fit and all but all that walking around wasn't too fun.. we seen the hall, met a rockette, and pretty much visited a bunch of other things but overall it was okay. the nbc studio tours was hilarious though! probably because i'm easily amused but our two tour guides were very friendly and had some funny jokes! we watched a video on this big screen about the history of nbc which was actually interesting. then visited studio 8H where they film saturday night live, also pretty interesting! we got our pictures taken inside this 'studio' and also where one person pretended to be a news anchor and another was the weather man in front of this green screen.. very hilarious since the one guy i knew. but i definitely loved the nbc studio tour more. after for lunch, it was a bit confusing where to eat! but all the shops were nice since they all had glass windows, pretty much like a normal mall but the lighting was a bit dark. the most interesting place was the shoe shining shop! it was very interesting.. like in one of those old movies! watching businessmen line up for it was amusing. Pros: nbc studio tours, interesting shops! Cons: lots of walking around during the radio city music hall , going in large groups of people you know would make both tours more interesting more

Today Show/Top of the Rock/NBC tour 10/23/2007

Here's my breakdown: Today Show- Definately recommend going to the plaza to see this if you can. We only stayed for 30 minutes but got to see Matt Lauer, Meredith, etc along with a few celebrities. Overall a fun experience. Top of the Rock- amazing views, decent price, and no lines on a Saturday afternoon! I would recommend this over the Empire State building observatory because of the long lines there. NBC Studio Tour- I really didn't think it was worth it. My husband liked it but we only got to see the SNL set and Conan OBrien set. Thats it. Once Conan moves to California in '09 what are they going to show on the tour? If the prices were lower you might as well but it wasn't that exciting. more

Ice Skating 3/14/2005

Don't miss out on the opportunity to go ice skating outside Rockefeller Center. At first you'll think this seems lame but once you start and are looking up at the buildings you'll realize that this is pretty cool. Now, I hadn't been ice skating in about 20 years but that didn't matter. Be a kid again and add this to the list of winter activities to do while visiting NY. more

NBC Studio Tour too short 9/2/2003

Boy do I feel like a sucker. I was told that the tour would last a hour and a half. Well, it did, however most of that time was spent waiting for elevators and listening to lame pre-recorded video of the history of NBC studios. For the expensive price they charged for the tour, we only got to see 2 studios: Studio 3B - home of Dateline NBC, and Studio 8H - home of Saturday Night Live. The majority of people on the tour felt equally ripped off. I would recommend you avoid this tour, as it's certainly not as exciting as it's advertised. Cons: waiting for elevators, dont see all studios more

Rockefeller Center Tour 7/1/2002

Stick to the NBC tour! A friend and I went on the Rockefeller Center Tour (a tour of all of the buildings that make up Rockefeller Center). Our tour guide was a bit not with it. While she provided some interesting information, it was clouded by extraneous comments and the horrible static on the headphones handed out to each. Also, the tour walks you through Rockefeller Center and the tour guide didn't seem to realize that we were a large group proceeding through many operating buildings... more

Learn how to do your job! 6/12/2002

I called NBC tickets in Febuary after going to a Conan show in January. For tickets for this comming up friday. I called and reserved the tickets and they never came in the mail. Usually you get them a month before in the mail. And a week was comming up and I figured I should call to make sure I get the paper before friday and they didnt have me in the data. HM! I was quit ticked. Thats so wrong. Just the whole point that I got people off of work to come with me and they dont have tickets after I called for them. Thats just not right! more

Too funny! 6/11/2002

If you can get tickets to a taping, you have to go! It was such a cool experience. It is amazing how much bigger the cameras can make this studio appear on TV. more
