Excellent factory tour. Very well done.

What I didn't like about this tour is that you walk a LONG WAY from the parking lot to the tour entrance. And then after the tour it's a long walk back but once you are there the... read more

What I didn't like about this tour is that you walk a LONG WAY from the parking lot to the tour entrance. And then after the tour it's a long walk back but once you are there the tour is excellent. You walk a mile on the tour in about an hour. The tour guides, who are WKU students, are... More

A must see experience...it does not matter whether male or female, grown up or youngster. My wife, who is not a car nut, like me recommends it to family and friends.

My husband has toured the factory three previous times. He's always wanted me to join him and since we were planning to drive through Bowling Green, we made reservations. I thoroughly enjoyed it! All of those beautiful shiny parts being carefully assembled into finished Corvettes was fun to see! I especially enjoyed seeing two couples who were there picking up... More

We have been going to Kentucky for many years for the GS Nationals & we have went on the tour 3 times now. We both worked at Ford so interesting to see how these amazing looking cars are put together. You could even be the lucky one that gets to start one of the cars on the line!!!!!If ever in... More

We visited the Corvette Assembly Plant in July 2014. If you are a Corvette lover as we are this tour is a must see. As you walk through the actual areas where each part of the new Vettes are being put together your guide explains what is happening at each stop. These are the actual cars that come off the... More

We have taken this tour three times - 1 for each generation of Corvette from C5 to the present C7. These tours never get boring. I admit, we are biased Corvette lovers, but regardless, do not miss this opportunity. You can find out tour schedules and reserve a tour time online. They are not usually open on Friday.

As Canadians we bought our tickets 6 weeks in advance. They do have a security issue, and we had to be cleared. Upon entering the parking lot, we laughed at a sign - non GM drivers please park here. That parking lot was really far from the gates to the plant. Upon entry they direct you to a small room... More

Not expecting to enjoy this tour, my husband was insistent. I am so glad, as he was right on this one! It was very interesting, exciting to watch the Corvette assembly, and to hear about the different models and options. I would recommend this tour to anyone...and I already have. If you are in the area, or passing through, take... More

I found this tour to be extremely interesting and our guide, Rachael, was very well versed on the assembly of the Corvette and knew the answers to all questions. The plant was extremely clean and the tour was right alongside the assembly line, which was surprising as I thought it would be something like an overhead view so you couldn't... More
