Reviewed October 22, 2012

we liked everything about our trip. The Ford factory tour was very interesting and nice that they had a shuttle bus from the muesuem to the factory.

“Building Trucks”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Loved the quick ride over to the factory. This particular weekday in October was quiet, with few visitors. Don't skip the films, they were well done. We walked the catwalk over the factory floor at a leisurely pace, taking it all in. The staff we encountered were very knowledgable and friendly. Had my eyes opened about the realities of assembly line work. A must-do in Dearborn.

“Interesting”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

It was really fun to see a vehicle being built. Takes about 2 hours to tour. I think anyone would like it.

“Go when the assembly line is working!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The best part is watching how the assembly line works, so be sure to call ahead to make sure it's on. It's okay without, but much more interesting when the trucks are being assembled almost magically. Don't miss all the environmentally friendly stuff - my grandchildren were impressed.

“Interesting, but no photos to prove it”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I am a person who likes to document everything with my camera. My only problem with this tour was that no pictures were allowed. The films shown before the tour helped to give you a sense of Ford history and made you feel unpatriotic if you didn't run right out and buy a Ford truck! (Actually, the second film was very loud and I wouldn't recommend it to young children - Several in our group had to be removed from the room when they were startled and started to cry!) Lots of new things to see and learn.
