The tour was great! HOWEVER, do not spend your money on the tour package which includes bus transportation. If you drive to the facility (plenty of parking) or take uber, the cost is significantly less!
People who want to tour the Boeing factory should be aware that there is a difference between the tour available at the Boeing factory itself, and the tours offered by tour companies. We met a lot of people who had booked with tour companies and...More
We enjoyed our visit to Boeing very much, shame that we could not take any photos.

Tour is 90 mins, the tour guide has you watch a short film then you board a bus to the humongous hangar where the planes are assembled. It was just amazing to see the size of the hangar and size of the planes they were...More
They say it's because someone dropped a camera battery on someone's head, but I'm not buying it. It would be easy to put up some netting. I found this tour fascinating and recommend it. It's incredible to see how HUGE this facility is, with multiple...More
Apparently, there are a handful of times per year where the plane that was just assembled has been moved and there is only a big empty spot to look at. For those times Boeing should not be running a tour. It was disappointing. There were...More
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. Our tour guide was excellent. It's amazing to think that the world's largest building is in Everett, Washington, but that's because they build the world's biggest planes there.
It was really a nice experience touring the aviation assembly plant witnessing how real planes are really made. The place is huge, and everything you would expect for in a guided tour. You have all these 747-800 and 787 Dreamliner on production is actually a...More

My wife and I live in Brazil and we were there: yes, there are several other activities in this place. The Boeing tour itself is a 1/2 hour visit but, although everything is shown in general and not in many details, it is very interesting. And the guides, who are Boeing Tour employees, do a fantastic job.
Both before and/or after the visit to the Boeing facility you can visit the museum "Future of Flight", with many attractions. Among them we found a complete and open turbofan engine (I can not remember if Rolls Royce or GE) of the 100,000lb generation, the type that equips the 777's and 787's, a real fuselage section of the 787 (which was used in performance tests) and a cockpit cut of an old 727 (very interesting too).
But even better than all that: at the same site of Boeing there are some private aircraft museums from the time of WW II. We visited the "Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum" which has a large collection of aircraft and other military vehicles, all under normal conditions of flight and operation. Simply exceptional.
Although there is a place that, in our opinion, is the most important visit of all in the region: "The Museum of Flight" in Seattle. It is the largest aviation museum in the world, where we spent 2 days. The experience is unforgettable and so impressive that I will not make any comments about, as only in person it's possible to have the real dimension of it!!
Wish you a good time!!
Currently there is not an easy transit solution. They are working on a new line but not sure when that will open and how close it will be to the museum. Two or three buses and It's a two or three block walk. You might want... More
