We visited with our 8 and 11 year old and all loved this! (I believe kids need to be at least 7 to tour the plant) It was amazing to see how many employees touch each corvette and for the kids to learn how not only the corvette was made but many consumer products. Some of the employees made it... More

This place is truly amazing. I highly recommend taking the plant tour. It was like $7 and almost 2 hours but definitely worth seeing the entire operation.. one of the classic assembly lines. You get to see the cars drive off the line also towards the end of the tour. Coming from a manufacturing background myself, I can truly appreciate... More

This is an absolutely fascinating tour of the Corvette Assembly Plant. Even if you are not a car person, and I am not, you will find this interesting. Some 900 people work at the plant, and you seem to see all of them. They take you through the assembly plant, showing various automated and hand-made aspects of the assembly line.... More

Price was $7/person, so not sure why some think that's high. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and what he didn't know, he found out. All the guides are volunteers. It is all walking through the plant. We saw many parts of the assembly process, by both humans and robots--of course, the end point is the best for the guys......No... More

I was expecting a lot more for the price. The tour covers about a mile according to the tour guide but you really don't get to see a whole lot of it. Even worse, it took us almost 1.5 hours to get through it. We both were very bored by the time we got done. I wouldn't do it again... More

This is the only location in the United States where Corvettes are produced. Seeing the process from the beginning to the end where the car is started for the first time and driven off the line was really fun. Our tour guide, Taylor Hudson, was informative and interesting. He has a wide knowledge of what it takes to produce a... More

To visit this factory was a terrific experience. Corvette owner or not. Make your reservations ahead of time. The groups go out with twenty five in each. It could last a little over an hour. There is so much to see! The college intern we had giving the tour should have learned the product better before being setting out to... More
