You can get a studio tour if you win an IGDA scholarship to GDC
The deadline to apply is Dec. 7
for the 2008 GDC (which takes place in March in San Francisco).
Scholarship winners get a free GDC pass, an orientation about GDC, a studio tour of a local game studio, and are assigned a mentor to meet with during the conference. Gotta be 18 and in college/uni.
