We had visited before - but is was Super Bowl Sunday and the factory was not being operated for the day (fair enough). We attended again - this time on a Tuesday. It is a brilliant experience for young and old. It is the world's...More
This place is a bit out of Seattle but well worth the trip. Very well organised tour with a lot of information and an opportunity to really see how the planes are built. Interesting fro kids and adults. There is a bit of walking required...More
If you love planes or work with them, its a very interesting tour. The site is huge and you have to go there to apprecaite just how big the factory actually is. The guides were very knowledgable. You tour at set times in groups, I...More
We spent several hours here going on the tour, checking out the gift shop, and watching some of the videos about the various aircraft made by Boeing. It was especially interesting since a few hours later, we boarded one of them on our return flight...More

With 26 years as a Pan Am and United flight attendant, I loved flying and miss it very much. It had always been a dream to go through the Boeing plant and I thank you for oh, I guess, just being there! And thank you...More
Best trip for aviation enthusiasts, on par with tour of Kennedy Space Centre. Be awed while overlooking final assembly of some of the world’s largest airplanes (Boeing 747, 767, 777, and 787) in the world’s largest building by volume. Dave, our tour guide, imparted insider’s...More
My son and his new bride are in town and I just took them on the Boeing Tour. Chris was our guide and he was just amazing! Even though this was my 3rd time going, he gave us so much information that I felt as...More
It’s far out from Seattle but worth the effort. Interesting but no pictures to be taken. Reservations have to be made because most tours are fully booked. After the tour you can visit the gallery below which is absolutely recommended.
A short tour of 2 hours, we viewed the building of Boeing flight from the platform. Identify different 747, 787 etc, and each stage of installation of the plane. Only disadvantage is not allowed to take photos, no cam, no phone, all bags in locker....More

My wife and I live in Brazil and we were there: yes, there are several other activities in this place. The Boeing tour itself is a 1/2 hour visit but, although everything is shown in general and not in many details, it is very interesting. And the guides, who are Boeing Tour employees, do a fantastic job.
Both before and/or after the visit to the Boeing facility you can visit the museum "Future of Flight", with many attractions. Among them we found a complete and open turbofan engine (I can not remember if Rolls Royce or GE) of the 100,000lb generation, the type that equips the 777's and 787's, a real fuselage section of the 787 (which was used in performance tests) and a cockpit cut of an old 727 (very interesting too).
But even better than all that: at the same site of Boeing there are some private aircraft museums from the time of WW II. We visited the "Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum" which has a large collection of aircraft and other military vehicles, all under normal conditions of flight and operation. Simply exceptional.
Although there is a place that, in our opinion, is the most important visit of all in the region: "The Museum of Flight" in Seattle. It is the largest aviation museum in the world, where we spent 2 days. The experience is unforgettable and so impressive that I will not make any comments about, as only in person it's possible to have the real dimension of it!!
Wish you a good time!!
