This tour was very interesting for history buffs but on the other hand a bit disappointing too. What we saw was good but there's not enough left of the bunker equipment etc. Since its now used as data storage for the majority of the space a lot of stuff is gone I'm afraid. The tour gives a very good idea... More

It is a great tour you should take while staying at the Greenbrier. It gives you a great amount of history along with a story about how the world used to be.

We toured this facility way back after it was first opened to the public (after the secret was revealed). The tour then was much better (more extensive), but for anyone who hasn't seen it (or who wants a brief history of how close we came to actual nuclear war), this is well worth the time and the cost.

The tour was very informative. Our tour guide did an excellent job in presenting the information and bringing it to life.

Like the tour and the guide. Just wished I could have stayed the night in the bunker. We did stay just above the bunker.

We had heard about the Bunker from the Washington Post article and have driven by White Sulphur Springs many times during our trips to WV. During one of our journeys, we stopped by the Greenbrier to check the resort out and ask if they give tours, but we just missed the last one of the day when we were there... More

This is well worth the time and expense. Hard to believe that this space was kept a secret for all those years. Go see it if you are lucky enough to be at the Greenbrier!

1This was the 2nd time I'd seen the Bunker Tour. It is absolutely amazing seeing 'the little city' behind the bid concrete doors, marked DANGER - HIGH VOLTAGE! I do recommend this informative tour! Our tour guide was fantastic! No matter ow many times you go, you walk away with lots of knowledge!
