“Must see cold war remnant”

Fascinating tour of the ultimate cold war bunker and with an incredible story Full house and senate sleeping quarter communication rooms all canbe seen. The front door is incredibly strong and so well hidden Highly recommend

“The Bunker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I am glad it was never used as its purpose to squirrel away most of the government during crises. It was a big secret and someone outed them in the early 1990's. The tour explores all the areas and I can see how well thought out it was.

“Interesting but over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

The tour is highly rated and over priced. Yes, you get to see blast doors and hear a the story but most of the area has been repurposed so there is little to see or experience. It is not much different that other fallout shelter except it was for the members of government. It would have been worth $10 compared to other tours but not the $30. Maybe the price just reflects the fact that it is located at the Greenbrier.

“Excellent - Interesting - Excellent Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Long hidden Bunker beneath the Greenbrier - tour guide was excellent and it was very interesting. The tour is worth the $25 price.

“The Bunker at the Greenbriar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

For those who remember the years of the Cold War with Russia, the fear of nuclear attack and the phenomenon of fall out shelters, the Bunker is a must for those staying at or near the Greenbriar Resort. The tour is well worth the $25 fee as you learn about one of the best kept secrets of the US Government, decades before the NSA spying scandal.
