Very interesting tour. The tour guide was very informative. Was nice to have a smaller group size for this impressive facility.

I have seen the bunker numerous times on television so I could not pass up the opportunity to see it in person. The admission was a little steep, but the guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the bunker come alive. An excellent, of pricey, tour.

My husband really wanted to see this. The tour was pricey but a wonderful history lesson. Our guide was knowledgeable and included children on our tour so that all learned from the experience.

Frank, our guide managed to keep over 20 adults (and even a few accompanied kids), thoroughly engrossed during this 90 minute tour of the fallout shelter. He was obviously very well informed about the facility and his enthusiasm and knowledge really made this visit memorable....More

Your best bet is to fly into Lewisburg W. Virginia, it is a wonderful town full of history as well and is only about 10 miles from the Greenbrier. Another option is to fly to Washington DC and take the train directly to the... More
