See my Corvette Museum review

Visited same time as at Corvette Museum. Had a great time at both. Best part was seeing the brand new corvettes rolling off the assembly line.

You get the tour by attending the Corvette Museum and purchasing ticket there. Tour is guided by staff from Corvette Museum. Very interesting. Best part is hearing the 'vette start up at the end of the production line. It has 4 trumpets for the exhaust, and it really purrs. Too bad GM can't seem to fix some of the chronic... More

I have never been inside a vehicle assembly plant and I am happy to have chosen this one. Seeing how the iconic Corvettes are put together was breathtaking. Our tour guide, even though he looked like he was 16 years old, was very knowledgeable in the topic. Definitely a must see attraction. They take you around the plant where you... More

Walk right alongside the assembly line and watch Corvettes come together and go through the final quality checks. About an hour and a half includes a short film.

A terrific place to see and a must if you are going to be near Bowling Green, Ky. It can take up to 1 1/2 hours for the tour. A Must See!

Enjoyed the plant tour. Alec was our tour guide. Very informative. He told us a lot about Corvettes that I did not know! Would recommend the tour.

My husband retired from there and I have been through the plant several times. It is a very interesting tour. I know there is an age limit on children so might want to check that out before planning your visit. There is a charge, but it is well worth your time and energy to go on a plant tour.

Wow! What an interesting plant to visit. The process of putting together a new car was interesting and so personal compared to what you would expect. A must see even if you aren't a corvette lover. I left there thinking it would be fun to have one knowing exactly where it had come from.

This was a highlight on our visit to the area. What an amazing tour! We felt honored to be able to visit and observe the plant and see all of the workings of building this beautiful American car. Our tour guide was excellent! Billy was very knowledgeable, added lots of facts about current and historical information, and was passionate about... More

This was incredible for any car lover. They do not allow purses, backpacks, phones, electrical devices, or open toe or open heel shoes. Plan accordingly.
