Overview
Get a behind-the-scenes look at airplane design and manufacturing on a 4.5-hour Boeing factory tour that includes the Future of Flight Aviation Center, and round-trip transport from select downtown Seattle and airport hotels. Watch the factory floor and flight line from above, get a virtual tour of a 787 flight deck, then use a simulator to design and test your own airplane.
What to Expect
This tour begins with pickup from your selected hotel in Seattle or SeaTac; travel to Everett, the home of the Boeing factory, the largest building in the world by volume. Walk high above the factory floor to watch the assembly of Boeing’s wide-body airplanes, such as the 747, the 777, and the advanced 787 Dreamliner.

Get a look inside a full-sized 777 jet engine, take a virtual tour of the 787 flight deck, then see models and mockups of airplane interiors and fuselages. Learn the history of Boeing’s planes from 707 through 787 on a video presentation, and watch a 3-screen presentation of the 787 Dreamliner.

See airplanes at all stages of outfitting and painting—you may even see a Dreamlifter, the jumbo 747 cargo planes that are modified to transport Dreamliner parts from around the world. Visit the Future of Flight Aviation Center, and use a touch screen computer to design and test your own airplane. This tour concludes with return transfer to your pickup location.

Boeing Tour Great, Future of Flight Centre Disappointing.

The Future of Flight Centre exhibition is currently almost non existent as it is being revamped. I believe this exhibit will not reopen to January 2019. At the moment there is a 747 tail in there and a few other bits but that is all....More

Dont miss this!

This tour was really informative, not only about Boeing but about Seattle in general. Interesting look at how and where these planes are built. As you would expect, the place is enormous but I did notice that the staff there catered really well for those...More

Much closed, more walking than learning

The future of flight section was absolutely empty except for a few large plane parts and a video. Found that most of the tour was spent on transport around the field. Once inside the factory however, the guides were informative and friendly. Save money by...More

just a little add on info...Nicholas is correct that the future of flight is under a complete redo and is currently empty which is unfortunate. The Boeing company is reclaiming all tour operations instead of having what was the Future of Flight do it. If...More

The tour includes being picked up and returned to your downtown Seattle hotel. Our tour guide also provided information and history along the drive to/from.

On the ride to Boeing on our bus we do not have more than 24 passengers. On the 90 minute factory tour at Boeing they cap the tour around 50 passengers.
