“great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had a wonderful tour guide. Tour lasted one and half hours and covered alot of territory. Wear comfortable shoes. It was fasinating. Wish legislators had to go there and not come out until they solved some issues!

“somewhat ihteresting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

It satisfied my interest , but a little over priced. Very plain and drab, but you would kind of expect that I guess.

Fascinating tour of the ultimate cold war bunker and with an incredible story Full house and senate sleeping quarter communication rooms all canbe seen. The front door is incredibly strong and so well hidden Highly recommend

“The Bunker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I am glad it was never used as its purpose to squirrel away most of the government during crises. It was a big secret and someone outed them in the early 1990's. The tour explores all the areas and I can see how well thought out it was.

“Interesting but over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The tour is highly rated and over priced. Yes, you get to see blast doors and hear a the story but most of the area has been repurposed so there is little to see or experience. It is not much different that other fallout shelter except it was for the members of government. It would have been worth $10 compared to other tours but not the $30. Maybe the price just reflects the fact that it is located at the Greenbrier.
