This tour starts with 2 films: one gives a history of the rouge plant (an amazing achievement of it's time) including the labor troubles (somewhat surprisingly). The second film is supposed to give you a feel for the manufacturing process, but it really is a silly collection of special effects.
Then you go up to the observation deck that shows the top of the new Truck Assembly plant (environmentally friendly with plants on the roof) and the rest of the Rouge complex. Much of the complex belongs to the steel company that is no longer part of Ford.
Then, after a short safety film (common sense stuff) you go onto an overlook of part of the assembly process. You don't see everything (I've been through other auto plants) but it still gives an idea of what the process is.
I liked the tour and would liked to have spent longer (full itinerary that day). It's good for people to get an understanding of what manufacturing really is and how it built the US.
