Interesting tour, very informative and knowledgeable docent. Tour starts at the Welcome Center, then board a small bus for a short ride through Graniteville village to the quarry and back to the center. Takes about 40 minutes and well worth the time.

My son said the free video seemed more of a sales pitch which it was. However it did cover how the granite is extracted which was very interesting. There are samples of monuments, statues, name signs and house number signs in the visitor center. It...More
