This is a great tour, very close to the assembly line and very informative. And the fee is small for a ticket. Well worth the time and money... Will do it again!

GM Bowling Green Assembly, otherwise known as the Corvette plantsite, is a fantastic tour I would recommend to anyone, regardless of what you drive or where your interests lie. It’s not just about sports cars – this is a working plant that demonstrates the care, detail, and quality of an American manufacturing production line. A few words about your visit.... More

We signed up for a 11:30 AM tour, we were in group 5. Our tour did not start until after 12 PM. The tour waiting room placed an old episode from the Speed network over and over again. After the tour started it was great. We really got to see the car making process even.

The tour was $7 and well worth it. We did not by our tickets online. Make sre you check out when the plant is closed for shutdown before making plans to visit. There are only 3 tours day. We arrived an hour before the tour to buy our tickets. They won't sell them any sooner. They took us into a... More

My son and I toured the plant. I had just purchased a 2014 Corvette Stingray in March. It was amazing to go through the factory and see how each step in the completion of my car had taken place. I was able to see "inside" my car and get a much better feel for what technology and engineering goes into... More

Tickets were $7 for adults, and I'm glad we went. We purchased our tickets online ahead of time. I'm not sure if tickets would have been available if we'd waited until we got there to purchase them. Our tour was scheduled for 1 PM. We got there 1/2 early, and we were already in the 2nd group. It meant an... More

This is my second time to go in ten years and I drove from Houston, TX. We made reservations prior to leaving and found the staff most cordial in allowing us to change the time when we needed to. I don't remember walking so dang far last time I was there. The signage is very limited as to where you... More

I didn't think I would like this but went with my husband. I liked the tour of the Plant much better than the Museum. The tour guide explained a lot. I'm from Canada and was surprised at the lack of safety measures the workers had here. Most women had long hair, not tied back, no hard hats, safety eye wear.... More

I went to the plant to watch my 2014 being built and what an incredible experience it was!! Everyone was so friendly and each and every employee thanked me for purchasing a Corvette. I never realized how many hands touched one car on the assembly line, it is an amazing experience that is not to be missed!!
