Not much else to add. Pricey for a couple at $60 plus tip. Good guide. A little long. Fascinating history.

Wonderful 90 minute tour. So interesting. Had a fabulous docent who was trained, knowledgeable, and humorous. Well worth the money. Highly recommend.

Great history in this tour but it could have been done in a half of an hour instead of an hour and a half. The tourguide was friendly and knowledgable.

Our Greenbrier tour guide for the "Bunker Tour" was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. She provided insights into how it was built, maintained, and decommissioned after its existence was exposed by the Washington Post. The accommodations for the full House and Senate plus one aide each was far from lavish -- but essential for maintaining continuation of government in the event of an attack on DC. The enormous steel vault doors were impressive. No photos allowed as the facility.

The Greenbriar bunker tour was interesting and detailed. The tour guide was knowledgeable. It was the third tour of the resort that I participated in. It was interesting to learn how the bunker was built without the general public being aware and how part of the facility was used by the public... Hidden but in sight. I thought the tour was a bit expensive. I grew up in West Virginia and have always wanted to visit the area. I am glad that I had he opportunity to visit the resort and see the bunker.
