About our Tours
Watch the fascinating assembly process of America's favorite sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette, on a one mile walking tour. Witness an engineering marvel as the chassis and body come together in "marriage" and brand new Corvettes roll off the assembly line.
Tour cost is $7 per person. With ID, current GM employees, GM retirees and active military personnel are permitted to tour free of charge. Accompanying guests will be admitted at no charge as well, up to a maximum of 10 guests. Remember to bring your ID.
Tours sponsored, organized and supervised by schools are welcome, beginning with children in third grade. Such school tours involving children in grades three through eight will be admitted free of charge. All tourists must comply with the plant's dress code and restrictions on personal property (i.e., cell phones, cameras, purses, etc.).
To ensure a reservation we highly recommend booking your tours online through our online booking system. There will also be a kiosk available to process credit cards for walk-in customers. Private Tours and Public Tours must be booked at least 9 days in advance. If you weren't able to make a reservation in time, walk-ins are allowed based on availability. Please arrive 45-60 minutes in advance of the desired tour time to get one of the available openings. Checks are not accepted for tours! We are a handicapped accessible facility.
Tour groups are formed in the order upon which tourists arrive, whether pre-paying or walking-in.

Days & Times
In 2013, Public Tours are available Monday thru Friday at 8:30 AM, 11:30 AM, and 2:00 PM Central Time.
In 2014, Public Tours will be available Monday thru Friday, 8:30 AM, 11:30 AM, and 1:00 PM Central Time.
Please arrive early. Tours will start promptly at their scheduled time or before, depending on large crowds. We will accommodate all guests. Tours are taken out in groups of 20-25 people, so if you are one of the last groups to go out you may have an extended wait time. Wait times can be up to 1 to 2 hours during our peak season. You will view a brief safety video and listen to an introduction about the plant before you take the tour. You will then embark on a casual one hour, one mile walking tour of the assembly area. Due to employee breaks and production issues, the assembly line may not always be running.
Keep up to date on the status of plant tours by checking back with this site. Tours are closed on most major holidays and internal business matters can cause cancellation of tours. It is best to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your schedule is already booked you will be notified of cancellations.

Closed toe shoes (NO sandals) are a requirement for all visitors. No cameras, backpacks, purses, fanny packs or other containers may be brought into the plant except by special request (for medical reasons, etc.) Also, all electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets, or walkie-talkies are not allowed in the facility. These items must be left in your car. There are no holding facilities onsite for guests' personal belongings.
