To get tickets call and reserve your date and time. Try to plan your tour while the factory workers are there. We parked in the parking garage across the street for $10.00 and after the tour we walked Beale St.

We booked for Saturday...donnot go then. You cannot see people working. Tour was only about making guitar. Nothing about history of Gibson. Role of the guitar in music industry or famous stars. I really missed that part.

Not sure but you want to try and go when they are making the guitars, you get to walk around the factory floor and see all the work stations.
