“Gibson factory tour”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This was very good, now I see why the cost is what it is. All the guitars are hand made for each order. The guide was great other then they should get the ear phones, it is hard to hear the guide on the factory floor. Very interesting tour but remember to get reservations for a tour, it fills up fast.

“This very good tour”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

This was a very good tour on how they make the Gibson guitars. This is a guided tour. The only thing I didn't like is that you are not allowed to take any pictures in the factory while you are on the tour. it takes about a hour for the tour I found it very interesting.

“Very interesting tour”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Very interesting tour. More so for people who are musicians or interested in music. They show you all the different steps in making their guitars. Our tour guide's father actually works in the factory. She could not answer everyone's questions but for only working there for 6 Months she did a pretty good job. They only work in the factory from 5:30am-2:30pm. Depending on what time you take your tour, they may or may not be working. Just a couple blocks from Beale St. $10 a person fee.

“Time better spent elsewhere”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Echoing other reviews in this rating category - waste of time, waste of money, guide totally disengaged and acted as if we were an imposition, poor audio equipment so most of the tour wasn't audible, and ended up being a boring time even though I love seeing how things are created
