Our guide, Cathy, was informative, knowledgeable, humorous and could be heard throughout the tour, Perfect for taking you for a walk back in time to the Cold War. It is pricey ($30, $15 for 10-17 years old, younger not permitted) but what at the Greenbrier isn't? Given that now much of the space is used by private sector operations, there... More

I'd recommend the Bunker Tour. It is a walk around where the Congress would have gone back in the cold war should things had gotten nasty and is just cool to see how it was all planned out and executed. Now a communication site for CSX

This was our 6th trip to The Greenbrier. Back in the 1990's we took the same tour and there was simply more available back then before they started CSX data storage.

This was a really good tour. You have to call to make reservations, I didn't find RSVPs online. It is a bit pricey, but a bit of a one of a kind type of tour. We did not stay at the Greenbrier, but checked in at the gate, got our parking pass and found a spot to park by the... More

The guides are very knowledgeable and present this piece of history with humor, detail and thoughtfulness. The place itself is remarkable. It's a must-see.

this was a very enlightening historical account of the bunker and circumstances surrounding it and lots of cool old equipment to see that "used to be" the latest and greatest of everything needed to live 60 feet under for a long time, including rotary dial phones.

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.
