The Corvette assembly plant, just off I-65, is a state-of-the-art facility. The tours follows the assembly line as Corvettes are put together right before your eyes, in all of their powerful and glistening splendor. Tour takes about an hour and 15 min and is worth every penny of the $10 ticket. Kids must be 10 years old, no electronics allowed.

We had no intentions of going to the Corvette museum or the factory tour. Not because we didn't want to but because we didnt know. When in Bowling Green, make the time to visit. The factory tour was really good. You are on the assembly line floor. Standing near the people putting the doors on, assembling the dash, mating the... More

Enjoyed touring this facility and seeing the pretty cars. The people who work there are kind and can't wait to visit again with the changes coming.

Combined with a visit to the National Corvette Museum this was a great experience for any Corvette owner and would be of interest to non car people as well. The tour is very well organised with information stops along the way and allows you to get up close to the assembly process of our favorite sports car. You definitely need... More

My husband has lived in Bowling Green for years but never went to the plant (He has been to the Museum a number of times) He is a car enthusiast and so I knew that this would be a perfect (and surprisingly not very expensive) present for him. We enjoyed every aspect of it, he as a car enthusiast for... More

A Corvette tour from a Chrysler man? Well you might find this part of our vacation strange. ((done in August of 1997 not 2016)) Yes this is part of a review you might have read before on a different review topic. This is if you remember was my favorite trip being our 30th anniversary year. We got off the Mississippi... More

Being a corvette owner, I really enjoyed touring the plant. It was about a mile walk, but you were so busy watching the assembly line workers, the automation, and listening to the tour guide that time flew by. I learned some things that I didn't know too. We timed our visit well - the week after Thanksgiving. Otherwise, I understand... More

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
