“Not much left to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

You get a little more than you can read about by going. Most artifacts have been removed; however, it was still interesting to see and experience.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Not much else to add. Pricey for a couple at $60 plus tip. Good guide. A little long. Fascinating history.

Wonderful 90 minute tour. So interesting. Had a fabulous docent who was trained, knowledgeable, and humorous. Well worth the money. Highly recommend.

“A little Long”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great history in this tour but it could have been done in a half of an hour instead of an hour and a half. The tourguide was friendly and knowledgable.

“Terrific insight into a time past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Our Greenbrier tour guide for the "Bunker Tour" was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. She provided insights into how it was built, maintained, and decommissioned after its existence was exposed by the Washington Post. The accommodations for the full House and Senate plus one aide each was far from lavish -- but essential for maintaining continuation of government in the event of an attack on DC. The enormous steel vault doors were impressive. No photos allowed as the facility.
