Our Most Popular Tour is Back! The Boeing Factory with Show Me Seattle

Booking with Show Me Seattle adds unparalleled value to your
experience at Boeing. 


Picture this: you’re waiting outside your hotel on a gloomy Seattle morning. Only to be greeted by more doom and gloom as you shuffle yourself inside a cramped Uber smelling of too many car air fresheners and a driver that insists on listening to his “50 Shades of Grey” audiobook the whole ride to Everett. The car bumps and shakes and you feverishly hunt for your Boeing Factory ticket lost in your bag. By the time you pull up to the Boeing Future of Flight, you want to hurl yourself out of the Uber before you hear one more second of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

✨Or, picture this✨: you’re waiting outside your hotel on a gloomy Seattle morning, when a bright, shiny red bus pulls right up to your door🚋. You’re greeted by a smiling Show Me Seattle guide at the wheel, and the warm smell of coffee invites you to take a comfortable seat in the spacious bus cabin. With your round trip transportation and factory tour tickets secured, all you need to do is sit back, relax, and take in the experience. You listen as your Show Me Seattle guide sets the scene of founder William E. Boeing, his legacy, and how his historic achievements catapulted Boeing to the forefront of aerospace innovation💪. During your cruise to Everette, you’ll be delighted by Seattle landmarks your guide points out across the city skyline. And in a snap, you’ve comfortably arrived at the Future of Flight having already learned so much along the way💯✅.

Special Features of Show Me Seattle’s Boeing Tour

Our Guides
Our Show Me Seattle guides set us apart from any other tour company.

Boeing as James is, he loves chronicling Boeing’s life and career. Curious about a particular plane? Ask James and he can tell you the differences between particular aircraft, their use, and how they were constructed. James is a fierce aircraft enthusiast whose dedication to the material has made him an expert in Boeing’s history and current events.

Insider Secret🤫Stops 
With our Boeing guru, James, he loves to give guests a behind-the-scenes look into the Boeing Factory grounds. James will take you to 4 special locations that no other tours include! One is the 777x Stress Facility with an actual 777x inside it! Before a plane sees the runway, it undergoes a lengthy fatigue testing process simulating 100,000+ flights. The test mimics the physical strain a plane would encounter over its lifetime to gauge how the structural integrity of the plane holds up overtime. The plane sits inside a gigantic structure with each section of the aircraft hooked up to hundreds of mechanical devices that push and pull on the plane. The entire process can take up to 3 years to complete and the plane will have “flown” 3x the number of flights it is expected to fly in its lifetime. To see the structure in person is a testament to the massive scale of the operation and the detailed testing processes each plane undergoes before it reaches the skies.

Whether you’re an aviation enthusiast or simply curious about the inner workings of the aerospace industry, the Boeing Factory Tour with Show Me Seattle promises an unforgettable experience for all. I may not be an enthusiast myself, but I got so much value from seeing the sheer size of the factory, the massive assembly floor, and the thousands of pieces that work together to construct these incredible feats on engineering. It was fascinating to learn how a timber baron could create a US aviation corporation whose far reaching innovations would eventually be seen in almost any aspect of our modern daily lives. 

So why wait to discover?🔎 See first hand why Boeing continues to inspire generations with their groundbreaking achievements in aviation✈️.
