I love cars, and also going round factories - so this was right up my street! Fascinating to see how modern logistics, manufacturing and I.T. combine to produce highly bespoke cars one after another. Interesting too to consider the future of work (more robots are planned.....), the environment (mass production of consumer goods vs. possible solutions a la electric Mini) etc. Finally a big thank you to Tristan (our tour guide) who was wonderfully enthusiastic and also very well informed.

What a great tour. All those robots. Such a clean place. You get a true picture of how the car is put together so it can be driven out at the end. Nice friendly staff. It was not his true name but he said to call him Richard. He was great. A head full of facts. This is one end of the scale as far as car production is concerned. If you want to see the other end book to go on the morgan factory tour in Malvern. The mini tour is good value for money and easy to find. I would get there an hour before the start time of the tour as there is a small museum/background display on site that is well worth a look at also. That part is free for anyone although personally I would not go out of my way to go and see it but if being there I had missed it then it would have been a mistake. There are age restrictions and you do have a bit of walking to do. We like the irony of being driven in a ‘mini’ bus made by Ford!

I booked this as a little surprise for my wife who is a massive mini fan, & the tour didn't disappoint. We would probably say the best 2hrs spent for the price. Tour guide very knowledgeable & very passionate about BMW mini. Would highly recommend this tour to all mini & non mini fans. Takes about 2hrs so good shoes a must.

Interesting tour, guide Janice very knowledgeable, all staff get courteous. Easy parking well sign posted. Price of your should be a little less expensive, as in essence it's a great P.R for the company and Mini brand Shame there wasn't a cafe, only vending machines, I believe could have kept people there maybe to buy in the shop and given the company added revenue. It's amazing how things have changed since I worked in the car industry in the seventies at MG. Abingdon. Will go again but not in the near future see

We were taken on a tour of Mini by our lovely guide Tristan. He was absolutely great, had so much knowledge and was really entertaining. I'm not a car person and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It really was fascinating!
