“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

This was the one of the highlights of our time in K.C. We don't even like motorcycles, but after the tour I wanted to take one home with me. As we were walking up to the entrance, an employee offered to take our picture which we accepted. We were ushered into the tour as we entered. Our guide was Carlos and he was fantastic. You get too see pretty much the whole plant.Very up close. From the paintshop to the lunchroom. Almost all the employees working gave a head nod or a smile. At the end they give you a postcard which they mail for you. Oh and it's free!

“Free tour, well worth it.”

The tour was free and well worth it. It's always good to see American made products made my American people.

“Harley Factory Tour - Kansas City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

The tour at the Harley Davidson factory in Kansas City was an experience I will not forget. These artisans are by far the most dedicated workers in any factory I have worked or visited. They are proud to call themselves Americans and it shows throughout the plant. The product they produce also shows the level of pride they have in their jobs.

There were a couple of Army recruits in the tour I was in and every corner we turned there would be a factory worker taking the time to shake their hands and thank them for their service. Like I said - these guys are proud Americans.

The tour was very informative, the products sold in their gift shop were good quality at a resonable price and everyone was extremely friendly.

“Great tour...even greater price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

Only down side to our visit was the wait. We got there around 10 a.m. on a Monday and couldn't get in until the 11:30 tour. The visitor's center and gift shop is small and hard to wait that long...but we did. The trip is one of the best factory tours that you can take. You actually get to go on the factory floor. Sometimes the trip moved a little too fast since you really couldn't pause and watch them assemble the cycles too much. It still is about a 45 minute tour (brief video on Harley included). Makes you want to buy a Hog. No kids under 12.
