The tour is very well done and definitely worth it! the tours fill up quickly so make a reservation far in advance. The tour is a walking tour (very easy) where you get an awesome close up look at Corvettes being built. The guide was fantasttic and we learned a lot. This is the only location that GM builds Corvettes.

Great factory tour! Get to watch America's sports car being assembled. Our tour guide was fantastic-very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions. If you are a Corvette lover, this is a must-see

This was our first automotive factory tour and it was incredible! For over an hour we were shown how Corvettes were built. It's an amazing maze of machines and humans working together to put these incredible cars together! We got to watch three Corvettes being "born"...being started for the very first time. Just too cool for words! Be prepared to... More

We visited the Corvette Manufacturing Plant and enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide, Kyle, was very informative. We had previously visited the museum years ago and enjoyed that, too. Be sure and make reservations for the factory tour.

It was really cool to see the only place in the world where they assemble Corvettes. The tour was about an hour and at a good pace. My wife and I enjoyed being in the plant

Travelling through Kentucky and stopped and did the tour of the plant. Informative and basically you are walking RIGHT beside the assembly process. Bringing a frame in at the start of the tour and the tour ends with a brand new car being dropped on the floor and driving off. Great way to spend an afternoon. Love the new vettes... More

It's a car building plant. What you expect is likely what you'll see. The difference is this isn't an ordinary cookie-cutter car and you can sense the passion when you take the tour. It's about an hour long and there is a good bit of walking but the information that is given and what you'll learn will satisfy. I only... More

Since we have been through the plant on many occasions we opted for the VIP tour through the Corvette Museum (2 ½ to 3 hours). This tour is more in-depth and more personal as there was just the two of us and our tour guide. We were on the early morning tour and our tour guide, Jim Mansfield, was very... More

Our tour started about where the doors are being installed. The assembly moves at a blistering speed of .1 MPH, with the total length of seven miles, with the time of just over one hour. Nissie, our guide, was able to answer most questions asked. The group viewed all areas, but for the paint section. At each assembly area Nissie... More

We signed up for the Corvette Factory Tour not knowing what to expect. Were we surprised! It is one of the better tours I've taken over the years. You receive a safety talk and a short video that gives the history of the Corvette and the factory. Then you are led to the assembly line by a very knowledgeable guide.... More
