Whether you are a guitar enthusiast or not you will thoroughly enjoy this tour. To make our tour more enjoyable, each person was given a headset and battery pack, so we could adjust our own volume. Our guide was very experienced, since he worked at Martin for many years and, at one time was the plant manager. The tour last... More

The Martin Factory has several duration tours. The "Behind the Scenes" tour takes two hours. You are led through almost the entire factory, through every step of the guitar making process. The Martin Company was established in 1833 and is still run by the same Martin family. The factory combines cutting edge computer technology with ancient skilled craftperson manual techniques...

Very interesting one hour tour of factory. You see the whole production area. Very informative and then shop on the gift shop or play guitars, also a great museum to browse. And it's all free!

We stopped here on our way to the Poconos. What a treat! I have always admired Martin guitars but am nowhere near a good enough player to justify owning one. The tour was excellent and free. Our tour guide did a wonderful job of explaining many of the 300 stations a Martin guitar passes through on its way to becoming... More

The tour was very interesting,with lots to see. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we also went to the old Martin factory. If you're into guitars you should definitely plan on a couple of hours, it's that good.

This is a real-deal factory tour that takes visitors right out on the factory floor and walks them through the entire 300-step process required to produce a hand-crafted guitar. The tour takes about an hour, but you’ll want to allow extra time to try your hand at playing one of the practice instruments at the end of the tour and... More

We drove out from manhatten to visit this factory. It was something my husband wanted to do but I was so impressed with the whole place that I enjoyed it too. There is a well laid out area for visitors to wait before the tour with guitars to try and cd covers all over the wall. The restrooms were the... More
