What You Can Expect
When you arrive at the massive Boeing factory — the largest building in the world! — meet your tour guide and fellow visitors for your behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities to see how the planes are assembled.
From high above the factory floor, view the assembly of Boeing’s major airplanes: the 747, 767, 777 and the revolutionary 787 Dreamliner. Down on the flight line, see aircraft in various stages being outfitted and painted with logos for airline companies around the world. You may also see a Dreamlifter — a jumbo 747 cargo plane designed to transport the Dreamliner’s large parts from every corner of the world to Everett for final assembly.
Gain a more in-depth understanding of Boeing's airplane production with a theater presentation of the 777 plane, a virtual tour of the 787 flight deck, and a tour of a mimicked 787 Dreamliner interior. Your expert guide will also teach you all about the history of the Boeing Company, which was founded in 1916 by William E Boeing in Seattle.
In addition to your factory tour, visit the Future of Flight Aviation Center to explore the dynamics of flight. Strap yourself into the 'Innovator' for an exhilarating virtual experience of the Battle for Iwo Jima, a Grand Prix Race or a barnstorming stunt plane. On the touch-screen computers, you can design and test your own airplane!
At the end of your tour, you’ll be taken back to your pickup location in your private vehicle.
Optional Upgrade: Museum of Flight Restoration Center (1-hour tour)
Just a five-minute drive from the Boeing Factory, the Museum of Flight Restoration Center houses approximately three dozen aircraft in various states of refurbishment. During your tour, get an up-close look at the planes being restored by volunteer engineers, who are getting the planes in shape for museum display.
This is a working center, giving you a fascinating look at what happens to some airplanes when their flying days are over. Knowledgeable volunteers can answer your questions while you gain insight into a piece of aviation history.
Ted Jennings, our guide, went out of his way to make us comfortable during the tour and to accommodate all our needs. He was very engaging to my two teenage sons, discussing things like music and aeronautics. Gave us ample time to tour the museum as well as the Restoration Center - giving us the inside-scoop of things. After the tour was done, gave us other great suggestions on exploring the rest of Seattle and surrounding areas. The Factory tour was absolutely awesome for those who love airplanes - to see the Boeing 747 and 787 Dreamliner as they're made was really a sight to see. Would definitely do it again.
Our private tour went off swimmingly with our driver picking us up promptly on time and was quite amendable when we had to get back 15 minutes early. He also provided an informational dialogue as we made our way to Everett
