Victory factory tour...

I'm going to be traveling in early June. My travels will take me quite near the Victory factory. According to their website Victory offers tours of their factory. I've done a fair number of factory tours, some good, some bad.

So I'm wondering if anyone has taken the Victory factory tour. Was it informative? Worth it? Did the tour last a while or was it over quickly? Did the tour guide (if there was one) take time to answer questions? Did s/he seem to know what s/he was talking about? Other comments...

Thanks

floyd,

I took the open house/tour 2 years ago (last year it was cancelled for factory upgrades) it was a very good experience friendly and informative guides, and questions were encouraged.

Don't confuse the factory tour with the Ness family "How they build a Gunner" earlier post, that was also very interesting, but not the same as the Spirit Lake, IA factory tour.

That comment says a lot about the integrity of the company. People who are treated well by their company and enjoy working for them show it. I'm excited to take the tour. Thanks for your insight.

I took the Corvette tour last summer, and must admit it was disappointing. Seeing the cars assembled and tested was cool, but there was little opportunity to ask questions. And the responses to the questions that were asked were difficult to hear. The tour guide was more robotic than the robots doing the spot welding.
