Take Walks: Take One! Make your own TV segment in NBC Studios.

When you take an NBC studio tour you don't just step into television history, you get a peek behind the scenes at how television history is actually made.

In the company of an NBC Page, you'll get a full tour of the famous studios, stopping off at famous sets like Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon or Late Night with Seth Meyers. You'll also step into the Operations Center where every second of broadcasting is filtered, cut, panned, and produced to create the polished product on your TV screen.

As the highlight of your tour, your group will then step into a real studio to film a 5-minute segment. You can work on your on-air persona as a host or guest on the show, or get behind a camera or mic to help create the perfect clip. After your NBC studio tour, you will be emailed a copy of your segment: Or we just have them send it to your agent, if you'd prefer.

Even though you step out of 30 Rock at this point in the tour, you don't step out of show business. Instead your local movie-buff guide will take you in search of some of the most iconic locales from the last fifty years of film and TV, like the Tiffany's store from Breakfast at Tiffany's and the Radio City Music Hall. You'll also see classic showbiz spots like Carnegie Hall and Studio 54.

This is New York exactly as you've seen it on screens large and small.

So much fun!

I had a great time with my tour guide. I learned a lot that I did not already know about this city and the movies/tv shows that were filmed here. I would definitely recommend it.

A bit of rain didn't dampen our spirits!

Porter was fabulous! We did get rained on but no one seemed to mind. My teens thought it was very interesting learning about all the different locations.


Does this tour run in bad weather?
Yes. Our tours run rain, shine, sleet, or snow, so please dress accordingly.
Is the fountain from the opening credits of "Friends" included in the walking tour?
Not exactly. That fountain is actually a reconstruction that was built in LA. We will, however, take you by the fountain that inspired the one on the show.
Will we see celebrities on this tour?
There are always some celebrities walking around New York city so we encourage you to keep your eyes peeled. However, we do not usually cross paths with them at any point on this tour.
