NBC Studio Tour:
Your Key To All Available Discounts

The NBC Studio Tour offers “behind-the-scenes” views of its New York City operation. An NCB page will serve as your tour guide. Keep in mind that

many famous celebrities including Willard Scott, Ted Koppel, Regis Philbin, Steve Allen, Marcy Carsey, Kate Jackson, Michael Eisner, and Dave Garroway began their careers as a page. Who knows!? YOUR tour guide might be the next future star! You’ll learn about NBC's early days in radio, the sound effect techniques that they used, and NBC's transition into television. Probably the most fun is having the opportunity to visit the sets and studios of NBC’s most famous shows including:

  • Late Night with Seth Meyers
  • Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
  • NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt
  • Saturday Night Live

KEEP IN MIND that if a studio is being used during your visit, you will not gain admittance. So, don’t get your heart set on seeing anything particular. With that said, we saw all the studios.
