The transportation from our pick up to Everglades and Space Kennedy was fantastic.The driver was so funny, and loved his cheeky comments. Made us all laugh.It was to cold on the morning we did our Everglades Airboat ride, so the Alligators didn't want to come out, but we did get to see a few in the water. The bird life was just beautiful. The boat ride itself was amazing, and our guide passed on so much information.Kennedy Space Center. Out of this world. They were so organised, that even with the amount of people coming through the gates, it didn't feel over crowded because everything was so spread out and there was so much to see and do. We actually got see to SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket launch. Something I will always remember.
First we went to the airboat. Unfortunately we only saw a glimps of 2 alligators but the ride was awesome!After that we went to KSC. That is so impressive!Very nice to see the Saturnus 5 rocket and Atlantis space shuttle.It's really too much to see in one day.Our driver Stuart had worked at KSC and knew a lot. He also had a program for each of us what the best order would be to visit all places. Very nice!
We enjoyed the Everglades airboat Safari but do to lots of rain the water was high and we didn't see as much as we would have liked, lots of birds not many alligators, this was not the tours fault but good old mother nature and rain.
The Kennedy Space Center was great, the bus tour was ok if you are a history buff but I would make sure I did all the rest of the stuff before doing that. We had our 9 year old grandson with us and he was a bit bored but loved the simulator etc. We did several of Viators tours and he enjoyed all of them but this was his least favorite. My husband loved all of it. We ran out of time for some of the movies that we would have loved to have seen. Pace yourself so you get to see the important areas that you want.
This was a fantastic trip! From the fun airboat ride with lots of birds and gator viewing to the mesmerizing Kennedy Space Center lots of gator viewing, here, too! It was a great way to start our busy theme park trip. Our Dolphin Tour Co guide, Madeline, was so eager to share her wealth of knowledge about Orlando's history, flora and fauna. Kennedy Space Center is a must see for everyone. They have created an interactive experience mixed with media and live presentations that opens the world of space travel up for people of all ages. Be prepared for about an hour bus/van ride from/to Orlando.
This was the best trip especially the lunch with an astronaut very good
Excellent tour with Jason our driver who were just so friendly, helpful and informative, even lending me his warm jacket to wear on the Everglades Airboat trip which I really appreciated as it was such a very cold morning that day and I do recommend that you take a jacket with you on this tour, but my husband and I did thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Everglades and we even managed to spot a few small alligators basking on some rocks close to the waters edge with various species of large wading birds hovering overhead which were just awesome to see and you could not wish for a more friendly crew and then onto the tour at Kennedy Space Centre which is not to be missed by anyone and was truly out of this world to see! excuse the pun and Highly Recommend both these tours.
A great day trip. The Airboat Safari was interesting and fun. Kennedy Space Center was amazing. Enough time was allowed for the visit. Bus transfers were good.
Really enjoyed my experience. The tour out was good. I am glad I took the opportunity to do an airboat ride and even saw alligators. Kennedy was incredible. I've always dreamed of visiting and it was everything I'd hoped. I spent all my time at the Apollo/Saturn V centre and the Atlantis exhibit.
This was an amazing day out. We enjoyed the Everglades, an hour ride was enough for us. The visit to Kennedy Space Center was fantastic and informative. When you're on the bus tour sit on the right side as the view of the space craft and hangers are better. I really only went for my kids, but it was my favourite thing out of the one month visit to the states. Really recommend. We got to met an astronaut and had photos, autographs and was able to ask questions.
I absolutely enjoyed this experience! Our tour guide on the bus and the driver were absolutely fantastic and gave us great info to use at Kennedy Space Center. She kept us entertained while riding to the Space Center and pointed out very interesting landmarks on the way. The guide on the airboat was very informative and managed to get us plenty of sitings of alligators and birds even though it had been pretty chilly. I definitely would recommend this trip to anyone.
This tour was amazing - Atlantis shuttle nearly made my husband cry! Great informative guide - managed to get to speak to an actual real life NASA engineer which was fascinating!!
The guide on the airboat was very knowledgeable about the wildlife.
When you have a day to spare if visiting Orlando, I recommend getting away from the theme parks and and visit some real history.
The airboat ride was excellent and out pilot was a real character. Even though it was cool, he managed to find us some alligators.
Then KSC. Been there before but always worth the visit. See where the Apollo and Shuttle missions were launched. Stand in the Rocket Garden, stand under a mighty Saturn V rocket, marvel at the Space Shuttle Atlantis, touch a moon rock and meet an astronaut.
Everything ran smoothly with the driver, timing, pick-up and drop-off. So could not ask for more. A great day out to a fantastic area and living museum.
