The tour was well worth the drive from Vancouver, BC
Apr 2019
My husband and I booked the Boeing Tour last year. We had heard amazing reports about the tour so we decided to make the drive there and back to check it out. We were not disappointed. We found the tour fabulous. The tour guides were very well informed, easy to hear and follow around the plant. They explained what was going on and how the different stations and machines worked. We were on the floor of the plant, and then up in a viewing area where we could see a huge area spread out in front of us. It turned out that we were only looking down on a portion of the huge plant. We would recommend this tour to everyone, and we enjoyed it so much we are planning on going back with some of our grown kids.

Absolutely fascinating tour. So much information was given out that my mind was overwhelm. I would highly recommend this tour.

Our driver, DC, to and from the factory was full of information and took extra time to show us some Seattle neighborhoods and sights. He was the greatest!

Boeing Factory tour
Feb 2020
It was interesting to see how the plane was made and how long it takes. You see the skeleton of the plane and how they assembled the seats and the windows. It was amazing to get so close. The only disappointing thing was, you cannot take any photos and all personal belonging has be locked away in the locker before your tour.
As the factory is a long way out of Seattle, remember that you could get a tour to include Future of Flight which will be better than doing it by itself.

Interesting morning tour to see the planes being built
Feb 2020
The tour itself takes an hour and a half and takes you into three sections of the building to look at the construction of three different airframes. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and informative. In each of the locations of the building you stand on the gantry area and look down on the factory.

Great tour from downtown Seattle
Feb 2020
Tour really has 2 parts, the Minibus trip to and from the Boeing factory and the Boeing factory tour itself, the factory tour was very interesting, the guide was entertaining if not a too excited by all his stats he liked to share. For me the highlight was the journey from and return to downtown. Our Driver David was exceptionally knowledgeable about the region and explained everything from geology to current events. He took a couple of stops for photos on return. I highly recommend, this package from Show me Seattle Tours.

I will give 4 stars out of 5. It is more informative tour than entertaining. I expected we get closer to the airplane for example. They could add more, still consider it worthy though.

Hi XOMARX! Glad you enjoyed the tour. This review is posted on the Show Me Seattle page - we provided the guided transport, but do not provide the tour of the Boeing assembly plant. That is done by the Boeing staff; you can post comments for them more directly on the Boeing Future of Flight page. That way they will see your feedback :-)
