As usual, Ben and Jerry's ice cream is great. The tour includes a small sample and we purchased a cone afterwards. The tour was not really all that exciting but we found it worth going on. The short video was interesting. Our tour guide as funny, entertaining and informative. The factory was in operation but there really is not all... More

We did the tour about ten years ago and found it interesting. Did you know employees get a free pint or two every day to bring home? We returned recently with the kids to give them the experience but skipped the tour. They were more interested in the flavour graveyard (I realized I took my hat off when we entered),... More

We visited in early June and on the way from picking up our friend from Lebanon, NH, we visited Waterbury for the factory tour. The drive from Burlington was about 30-40 minutes. It was a beautiful warm day and we quickly realized why there are fluffy clouds on the Ben & Jerry's pints - It's beautiful! The property is well-laid... More

We stopped in here on the way to Stowe. The tour was alright. There really isn't much to tour. It last maybe 15 or 20 minutes including the video on the history of the company. You get a little miniscoop of ice cream free at the end of the tour.

While on the way to Burlington we had to stop at the Ben & Jerry's factory. We did the tour which lasted about 30 minutes. We found it interesting to learn about the company's history and efforts to follow ethical business practices. During the tour they give a sample of a predetermined flavor. Outside, near the parking, is the flavor... More

On our way home from Montreal we decided to stop off at the Ben and Jerry's factory. The museum tour was interesting and it was followed by samples of ice cream. Would visit again!

We visited the factory on August 9th - not a problem that the factory was not working. We had hoped for more - our guide was amusing and the film was OK - I suppose I was expecting more - it was really a bit of let down. Loads of people there though so it must be popular. As we... More

No visit to Vermont would be complete without touring the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory! From the organized way they help you park your car, to the layout, to the tours, to the "Dearly Depinted" cemetery, it was a fun time. The tour only lasts about a half hour but in that time, you learn all about the making... More

The home of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream. They have a short and very interesting tour about Ben and Jerry, how they meet and built this beloved company. You will learn about the quality of their product as well as morals and generosity to their customers and the community. There is also a very large scoop shop and things to... More
