Fun and interesting!

Learned a lot during my tour. Was cool to watch people doing their individual parts of making a guitar come together.

I have lived in Nazareth for thirty five years and never visited the Martin Guitar factory. It was high time I did and I was quite surprised at the tour they offered. First of all, for anyone that plays the guitar, regardless of which brand, this is a must tour. Martin Guitars are hand made guitars and the tour lets... More

FREE. Tour is given through the actual factory while people are working. We thought it was very interesting to see the skill that these workers used making the guitars. They seemed proud of their creations. We don't know anything about guitars, but many of those on the tour were players and they were in awe of the Martin Guitars.

We enjoyed a reserved group manufacturing tour with the engineering manager. It is amazing to see so many people at work making standard and custom guitars. The tour allows for close up access and build an appreciation for the work going in each guitar. The welcome area and small museum are attractive. All staff was friendly, entertaining and it is...

The free 1 hour tour of the factory was great. We saw many craftsman and women working on these fine instruments. Bobbie, our tour guide, was a wealth of information and funny. The museum was great too.

My husband plays guitar and a member of a couple of bands. For Father 's day this year, I thought of taking him to Martin's Guitar museum and factory. I asked him to take off work because the factory is only open during weekdays. We arrived past 9am, put our names in right away, then stickers were given to us... More

I like visiting the Martin Guitar Factory to see how acoustic guitars are made. One luthier uses a machine that cuts the sound hole in each guitar. There is also a museum that has a collection of guitars. I also played a few tunes on one of the guitars that are available.

I have always wanted to take this tour. I've been playing guitar for over ten years so it just made sense to me to get an in depth look at how it is done. From the time I parked my vehicle I was directly opposite from the main entrance.. The old factory and logo remains a part of the new... More

We had a tour guide giving her first tour. She was terrific. The plant is so clean and all the workers show such skill. Would recommend this tour for anyone.
