What to Expect
Begin your Boeing tour with convenient pickup at your downtown Seattle hotel or central meeting point. Climb into a comfortable vehicle for the ride to the factory, about 25 minutes away. As you travel, listen to commentary on Seattle and Boeing's history in the city, relax, and leave the driving to an expert. Explore the Aviation Center Gallery upon arrival; this huge space features displays and exhibits to see before your official tour. Meet the Boeing representative, who will show you the inner workings of the assembly plant. See each model of plane that the company makes in different stages of construction, and do some "plane spotting" on the Strato Deck. The tour's last stop is the Future of Flight Aviation Center, which allows you to try a flight simulator and build a plane in an interactive exhibit. Return to Seattle your original departure point at the end of your tour.

This place is crazy big and worth the visit, it’s just a pity (but understandable) that photos are not allowed. Only downside is that the driver that took us there talked a little too much about himself.

I had asked to be picked up at our motel and called a week in advance to verify this would be possible. At that time, also ask about the pier drop off. If at all possible, I assure you the driver will accommodate you.

Hi we purchased straight from the Boeing site as we had our own transport. I would suggest ringing who you booked through and get it sorted quickly so there is no confusion/stress with your tour. Enjoy.
