This tour was the highlight of our Christmas visit to the Greenbrier. The fee is a bit high (as with everything at the Greenbrier) and you do need to make a reservation, but the tour is fascinating. The Greenbrier was selected by the US Government as the offsite evacuation site for Congress in the event of a nuclear situation. The... More

I arrived at the Greenbriar not knowing about the bunkers or their story. But when a friend invited me on the tour, I was happy to join. It was very interesting if not a little long.

$40 bucks get you a walk and a talk. But so much has changed over time that is it hard to visualize what really took place.

I can't understand the raving reviews. We did this tour over fifteen years ago. It was much better then than it was this week. It is very expensive for what it is now. They make you hand in your cell phone -- which seems somewhat absurd after you go through the tour with really nothing to see. It took an... More

A must see. Amazing to think this was operated at this beautiful hotel with no one knowing. The tour price of 34.00 is well worth it.

We shopped in antique stores, craft stores, Christmas store. We toured the Bunker which was very educational. We ate awesome food and went on a carriage ride. The horses are so well cared for.

If you are interested in history, then dont miss this tour. It takes you back in the cold war era. Gives you a glimpse of how the govt had back and contingency plans in case of any unforeseen circumstances.

This tour was interesting to the history buff. It was a time in our history that I remember as a child. Raises a few questions for today! Did they take the wall paper down in the three year after? Ha Ha!
