As a family with two teenagers and since we live in the same vicinity we thought this would be a local and interesting sight to see . After starting off kind of boring well at least to me with a video things got better when you entered the main facility and took the tour which we enjoyed but kids thought... More

It was the 'Luck of the draw', as they say. Our tram was driven by an inexperienced driver, so her prime concern was making sure she stuck to the route and avoid accidents rather than going slower during the more interesting parts. And the trip was scheduled during a production break so you had to imagine what the workers would... More

I am not particularly into cars, but I live in the area and Nissan USA is a large employer, so I thought it would be interesting to schedule a free tour of the plant. Once there, the "hosts" were all friendly....you watch a brief video on Nissan and the manufacturing facility and then get into large open carts with headphones... More

We really looked forward to this tour, booked in advance and were genuinely excited. Everyone was nice, but from start to finish our tour was only 40 minutes which included the video. We felt very rushed and not able to observe all the interesting work going on. We were pushed through from start to finish and shown the door without... More

Everybody knows that Nissan's are dependable and long lasting, same goes for their factory tour. Tours are Tuesdays and Thursdays and you must call ahead to make a reservation however this is definitely something to see and is a no charge attraction. It takes a couple of hours to see what they permit you to see but it's a couple... More

My sons are big fans of shows like "How It's Made", "Factory Made", and the like. So when we were planning a trip to Nashville, we decided to look into a tour of the Nissan plant in Smyrna. It is a rare opportunity to see something truly impressive and is well worth the time. Everyone, including mom, LOVED IT! It... More

This is a very informative and interesting tour. You need to book ahead because there can be up to a two week wait. It's a fast moving tour riding on trams, each with it's own tour narrator who explains through your headsets what you are seeing as it can get very noisy. Lasts about an hour and there is no...

We've scheduled a factory tour several times as a homeschooling family and this place is super cool. The technology they use, the sheer size of the place, and the manufacturing processes are awesome to learn about and your kids will remember it forever.

I think it's pretty good, I wish the trams would slow down just a little so you could see more. But it's very interesting.

The plant is amazingly clean and modern. I was surprised that a factory could employ so many people with smiles on their faces.....Must be a great place to work!
