Interesting Factory Tour

This tour began on a 10 or so minute bus ride to the factory. Once there, we listened to a movie about the F-150 for maybe 10-15 minutes before flying solo to look at a few old... read more

This tour began on a 10 or so minute bus ride to the factory. Once there, we listened to a movie about the F-150 for maybe 10-15 minutes before flying solo to look at a few old school models through the years, as well as walking the second floor while the first floor assembled F-150s. All aspects kept our interest... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I wish we could have seen the sheet metal stamping, painting and merging of the body to the frame...but still enjoyed this tour and would recommend it if you are in the Detroit Area.

Amazing view of the genius of Henry Ford and the success of the Ford Motor Company. 7200 F150 Trucks produced every week. A truck every 60 seconds! The two introductory movies provide a great lesson in American History and innovation. The docents fill in the extra details along the elevated walkway over the floor of the assembly line. 5 Stars

Two short movie presentations: 1) Brief history of the Ford Motor Company and 2) Current Operation with special effects - really cool! Self-guided tour of the assembly area allows you to move at your own pace. Ford representatives are available along the way to share insight and answer any questions you may have. The sheer magnitude of the complex as... More

We had a blast, kids had a blast, can't wait to return. What a memorable experience. So glad we decided to go. A diamond in the ruff.

Pretty nice tour. Aside from being led into 2 separate room for audio and visual information about the Ford Factory it's pretty much just a self guided walk above part of the factory line. We went as a large group with both young and older. Some family members were not able to walk the whole tour.

The orientation films are informative, and it's neat to see how huge the facility is. The green roof is interesting, although not a must-see. The highlight of the tour is seeing the factory floor in action. The assembly line works! It is truly fascinating to watch the trucks being assembled.

We went on this tour and really enjoyed it. Hearing about the history of Henry Ford and how he built the first car was interesting. I am a Ford girl and drive a Mustang but really enjoyed going through the assembly line and watching how the truck is made. This was a interesting tour. Glad I did it.

A must for any auto enthusiast and a great place for non-enthusiasts as well. Movies provide history and a Disney-like second movie simulates the manufacturing process The plant self-guided tour was also very interesting Partnered with Greenfield Village and The Museum it is a long day or better spread over 2 days. You also might want to tour the surrounding... More

This was one of he coolest Venues I have ever visited! The entire tour was self guided with guides as needed. Guests could browse as long as they wanted as the car gallery and the F150 assembly. Staff are knowledgeable in the process. It is like a truck assembly ballet the way all the process come together! The F150 movie-later... More
