“Interesting Tour”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Since I knew nothing about the Bunker, the tour guide really gave us an interesting tour. She answered everyone's questions. The only problem we had was the person taking our money didn't say hello but asked us cash, debit or charge. This probably shouldn't be the first words spoken. A welcome hello would have made us felt more comfortable paying $30.00 each for the tour.

“Hidden in Plain Sight”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

A must tour to take. Amazing how this was hidden for 30 years. Martha was an excellent tour guide full of information. Definitely interesting not to mention the historic beauty of the Greenbrier.

“New understanding of a time in our nation's history.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Interesting historical lesson and very interesting place! Who knew that our nation's leaders would be smuggled to a bunker in West Virginia if we were under nuclear attack?

“Excellent Tour”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We paid $30/person for our tour. Terri, the guide, was excellent. Brings back the zeitgeist of the '60s. All very interesting. Good for teens to adults. Young kids may be tired or bored. They hold your cameras and cell phones for the duration of the tour.

“Great tour, lots of history”
Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed this piece of history. It was fun to relive the frighting days of the cold war without the fear of nuclear attck. I wonder where the present day bunker might be? Don't miss this historical site.
