Positives: the factory was great, terrific cars and process to make them from start to finish. Negatives: college intern conducting tour didn't know the product well enough. Waited 45 minutes past "start time" before called to do the tour. This made us over an hour late to meet others since the tour was supposed to last an hour and lasted... More

I don't know what I was expecting from the plant tour, but it was so interesting to see everything and everyone at work. The meticulousness of the process and details was really kind of amazing. If you aren't a car enthusiast, I'm not sure that it would be all that fascinating, and I definitely wouldn't recommend it for kids (under... More

If I was not going down to Bowling Green for the Corvette Museum this would still have been worth the drive all by its self. The tour was given by a very knowledgeable intern. The tour was amazing. If you like the shows on tv like "How It's made" and "Factory Made" this is for you. And it is only... More

Stopped here while driving down on I-65 and it was completely worth the 7 dollars. The total tour takes about an hour. In this hour you will be exposed to the complexity that is involved in building a car and many of the quality checks that have to be done to insure customer satisfaction. Overall, even though the tour guide... 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 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
