The building builds 747, 767, 777, and 787 The tour starts at the future of Flight building. Then board a bus for the trip to the factory via the flight line where you will... More

It is a long walkabout in a ver large building. You view the planes being made. A visual kaleidoscope of manufacturing activities. The visit included our 95 year old mother-in law who was the star of the show as she worked at Boeing during WW2.

This tour is well worth your time. It's incredible to see the planes up close and in the various stages of manufacture. The size of the hangers and the amount of people it takes to put these things together is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the gift shop has some very interesting stuff.

Excellent day trip for families. Tour is about an hour long and very impressive. The kids are still talking about it!

It had been at least 10 years since we had done this tour. Happy to say it has gotten better. The greeting center is wonderful, set up with great displays and a 4th level viewing area to see the aircraft flying. Plant tour requires much walking but it is worth it to see the fine aircraft assembly floors for the... More

I've always had an affinity with the Boeing product and have trusted said product for decades. That said I found the tour underwhelming ! It was cool seeing these huge aircraft in different stages of production and I still got an interest out of it but something was lacking ? I didn't like the military style edict of no cameras...

If your traveling with kids make sure that they are 48 inches tall, height is strictly enforced. Didn't really understand why but I think it has something to do with the viewing balcony ledges were 4 ft tall, but they were a few glass viewing for shorter kids to watch. No phones, no cameras and no purses allowed. Make sure... More

After a short film show you get a ride in their bus to see their assembly line where the guide gives you lots of details of how it's all done. You can see 737,747 and dream liner and lifter being assembled. You will be astonished at the kind of details that comes your way. Also in the reception area you... More

I won't rehash what others have said. It was very interesting and worthwhile, but no big surprises. The tour guides are very energetic. If the weather is cold or rainy, you might want to bring your coat as there is some walking in and out of buildings. There is free parking right outside the front door. As mentioned, no electronic...
