Fascinating tour

Walk right alongside the assembly line and watch Corvettes come together and go through the final quality checks. About an hour and a half includes a short film.

Enjoyed the plant tour. Alec was our tour guide. Very informative. He told us a lot about Corvettes that I did not know! Would recommend the tour.

My husband retired from there and I have been through the plant several times. It is a very interesting tour. I know there is an age limit on children so might want to check that out before planning your visit. There is a charge, but it is well worth your time and energy to go on a plant tour.

Wow! What an interesting plant to visit. The process of putting together a new car was interesting and so personal compared to what you would expect. A must see even if you aren't a corvette lover. I left there thinking it would be fun to have one knowing exactly where it had come from.

This was a highlight on our visit to the area. What an amazing tour! We felt honored to be able to visit and observe the plant and see all of the workings of building this beautiful American car. Our tour guide was excellent! Billy was very knowledgeable, added lots of facts about current and historical information, and was passionate about... More

This was incredible for any car lover. They do not allow purses, backpacks, phones, electrical devices, or open toe or open heel shoes. Plan accordingly.

The factory tour is enjoyable, you get to see various stages of the Corvettes being assembled. The tour is about 90 min long. You are not allowed to take pictures :-( Would have liked to see more steps in the process; the tour only shows a select few. I would recommend this to all corvette fans/owners. We had tickets for...

I had never been in a auto production plant before. This was well done. Lots of interesting surprises, like, who knew you could participate in building your own engine for your own car? Takes about an hour to go through and well worth the $$$ Between it and the museum across the road you could spend the whole day

We booked this tour along with the museum tour to save a little money. We were sent etickets, but the email said that they needed to be printed before your arrival. That proved to be a little difficult since we were in the middle of a road trip, but we managed to get it done. You are not allowed to... More
