The trip was great! Our tour guide bill gave a thoughtful narration on the bus ride over to KSC on the history of US space program including elements of science and engineering. He provided a suggested itinerary of the many options to see at KSC that maximized what we could see in the time available. Kent did a great job driving the bus. Only problem took two hours to get back to hotel, mainly because of Orlando traffic between 5-7:30pm.
Great place to visit for a single day tour. We could not visit the launch pad because of partial government shut down. Personally, it was my dream to visit Atlantis and meet a astronaut. Live interaction with Astronaut Sam Durrance was a real pleasure. The movies on space explorations in IMAX 3D was a great experience as well.
I went to this attraction alone. Felt safe, made wonderful friends and had a great time! Enjoyed the day, the history. It was great to have comfortable transportation at the end of a long day.
Great job by all from where we parked our car to the guided tour starting with bus transportation to the all day tours at Kennedy to the Lunch with an Astronaut and ride back. Skilled and friendly drivers and tour guides. Fantastic memories for our children and grandchildren.
Truly an awesome day and if you have any interest in galaxy exploration I would highly recommend this tour! Maybe even for multiple days if you have time so you can eat with an astronaut!
The best part about this tour is that it is at a real functioning space center and two days before my visit they had launched a rocket from the very platforms we toured to supply the ISS, now that is cool! Every rocket and shuttle, each desk at the control center to the specks of moon dust on the space suits were truly a part of our humanities goal to find more out there, and what is more awe inspiring than that! It was so great to learn about the history of space travel and what amazing and brave people have sacrificed to explore beyond our reach. If you have any interest in space or just want to learn more about our part of it, i would highly recommend this day!
Brilliant day. Great tour guide on bus pointing out alligators. Loved my time in the space centre, of the shuttle era so to see one was quite emotional. Whole visit was fantastic. Highly recommend
Really enjoyed this tour!! Tour guide Bill was informative and shared lots of tips. When I arrived there, I felt like I knew where I was going and what to do to get the most out of the day. The ride to and from Orlando was great thanks bus driver Stewart and it was convenient being dropped off in parking lot number 1. Pick up and drop off at the hotel sites was handyand quick. One suggestion I would make is to buy your souvenirs, if you are interested in doing so, from the Apollo/Saturn Center. The selection and variety was far more extensive than the under construction gift shop at the main vistor's Center even with the allure of a 10 off coupon. You will be disappointed in the selection and may regret not having made purchases at the other place. All in all a fantastic day.
Wonderful day out with the family exploring and learning at the Kennedy Space Centre!
Highly recommend this trip. As the space centre is a fair drive from Orlando it makes sense to organise these guys to pick you up and take you there and bring you home again. They were fantastic.
Loved everything about this tour! Guide was helpful, but also had lots of free time to explore areas of interest. Highly recommended!
Great trip! Enjoyed seeing Kennedy Space Center and the roots of our space program! Every American should do this tour!
Coach journey about 50 mins to the Space Centre. Driver informative and helpful. The space centre is amazing, loads to do and see!
It is great to see the Kennedy Space Center tour will give you more time to spend 7hrs in space program as 2-3hrs in coach tour to around the Space site include space museum.
