We decided to do this last minute so we didn't have a reservation, however we were lucky to get a spot on this tour & I'd recommend a reservation to any of those interested. I'm interested in cars & work in the industry so this tour was fascinating to me. You get to see almost the whole process of how the Corvette is made, right down to the end when they drive the car off the assembly line & start the quality control testing. Very good deal ($7) for the tour, guide was just starting & she did a good job. Tour takes about 1.5 hours.

It is amazing to watch these craftsmen assemble and build these cars. It is like a dance routine. Automatic parts delivery, twisting and winding conveyor belts. Amazing. I recommend a visit. It is only $7.00 per person.

I always wanted to see where my 1996 Corvette was born. Now, after touring the GM Corvette plant in Bowling Green, KY I am utterly amazed at the efficiency and precision that goes into every Corvette. This is an incredible scientific tour featuring driverless-computer controlled wagons, robots effortlessly twisting and turning assembly parts into position and an orchestrated assembly line of doors, seats, wheels all there just the worker is ready for them. Worth every penny for admission.

The assembly plant tour was great value for the $7 fee. You don't get to see everything in the plant, but over about a 0.5 mile walk through the plant, you do get to see a lot, and they give good descriptions of what you are seeing. It is fairly unique to see a whole plant dedicated to the building of one type of vehicle (incredible vehicle!) and you can clearly see pride in the workmanship. Afterward, we visited the lobby of the Corvette museum (free) rather than going in to see the whole museum ($14 each, but some discounts available). It is very fitting that there were 8 spankin new 'vettes in the 'showroom' when we went in, roped off and identified with the names of their new owners; and to see these new owners going through an introduction to the vehicle with a factory representative.

Be sure to arrive early for your scheduled tour and allow enough time. Although there are only three or four official tour times, each tour time may have several groups that start their tour at 20 minute intervals. e.g. Our tour time was scheduled for 11:30, but with about 100 people booked in, we were in the fourth group of 20-25 people and didn't start our tour until 12:15; then allow a good hour for the tour. No cameras, phones, purses etc.

Corvettes are just cool! This tour shows you how much goes into making the car so special. It's a great plant tour. No backpacks, purses, cell phones, etc. parking is not real clear- you need to go all the way around the building. The museum is closeby and the boys really enjoyed that too.
