One of the best tours and a great reason to visit beale street. We were fascinated by the construction of the guitars. The attention to detail is incredible. W particularly enjoyed seeing some of the custom work. Go gibson

We didn't know what to expect. The tour was fine. Shopping in the gift shop was very pricey. We had bought our grandson a gibson back home and was surprised to see the high prices on the guitars in the shop.

I was lucky enough to take a tour with family in oct 18’. It was great to see the craftsmen/women working on es models at various stages of production and some of the original 1920s & 30s machinery from the original workshop in kalamazoo. Sadly, gibson relocated to nashville to merge with the usa & custom shop operations. It was the highlight of my trip.
Tip: Build a time machine because it’s gone for good. :[

My second time doing the tour, truly enjoy seeing the craftsmanship that goes into building these guitars, very hands on and old school. A must see for guitarists.
Tip: Don't expect any factory discounts in the store!

"Tour was good."
Tour was good. Guide new the building process and employees very well. Bummer that we could not take any pictures inside due to trade secret issues. Also could only see one type of guitar being made. All in all we learned a good bit about the guitar making business.

The tour through the facility is great. However, during the tour you cannot hear what the guide is saying. The guide was also good, but you miss everything he is saying unless you are standing right beside him. It would be great if the tour provided audio so all the information can be heard.
