Excellent Guide. Very Informative trip Treated like VIP at Space Center so avoided all the long Spring Break Crowds.
Excellent day tour, our guide Greg had great knowledge and was really interesting and funny.
Excellent service. Knowledgeable about Houston. Showed us the sights that we could further explore, so would have been good to do it as a first up tour. His knowledge and tips on NASA was excellent. Because we were the only ones on this tour, we had a private limo tour. He was hospitable and had drinks and snacks and a souvenir momento for us. This was a tour with a difference and one of the best we have done.
Brilliant tour with a knowledgeable and very helpful guide who Was excellent
The tour was well organised and very informative. Our guide was great and went out of his way to return my sunglasses which I left on the transport. I would highly recommend this trip and the Space Center is great
Our tour guide, Gary, was great! He picked up us on time, and showed us some sights in Houston we were not aware existed. At NASA, he made sure our 9 year old grandson had a wonderful time! He knew many of the employees at NASA, and our tickets were priority. I would highly recommend this tour.
As we are into the space program and its history, we made sure we visited Houston just to visit the Johnston Space Centre there. Our day was exceptional and we were extremely impressed with watching a working centre still to this day go about its business. The displays were impressive and we got to touch an actual space capsule that had been in space. Great tour if you like anything to do with space. Out guide was amazing and we enjoyed being taken around the suburbs to see the beautiful old homes and leafy streets. A great day and one to always remember.
A truly great experience! the driver,Gregg, was very helpful and informative,and got us to the front of Queues and 10 discount at the gift shop.It was raining pretty heavily,so he contacted us twice to see if we wanted to cancel,as NASA stop their tram tours of the site in bad weatherfortunately,we didn't,!
