  • This is a full day tour. There are so much to see in Kennedy Space Center. Make sure you don't miss the Imax movies. The Airboat Ride is also interesting. It was a beautiful and warm afternoon and we happened to see many aligators along the swamp area. At one point, we are only 3 feet away from the aligator - a real close look at it. Amazing!!!

    Mitch is our bus driver and guide and he is very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend to others especially ones who have never been to Kennedy Space Center.

    The only comment is we weren't able to see everything in Kennedy Space Center since we have to leave at 3:30 pm for the Airboat Ride. However, we had a good time!

  • Great tour! Can thank you enough for the great service you've shown my kids and I!!

  • In one day you spend more time in the bus than at the center. Pick up at 7.30am in the morning, but the tour only starts at 8.30 and we only got to KSC at 10 am, and in the in evening the drop off was really really late 8.45pm Since the queue for the bus tour was long more than one hour we did not get to do it. The airboat ride was not interesting... If you do this just to see a few scattered bulls and one alligator which does not seem real, it is a waste of time. We went back to our hotel tired and were not satisfied with our day out...

  • The tour was pretty good! Would've liked to have stayed longer at the Kennedy Space Center. The kids enjoyed the air boat ride, although we didn't get to see any gators in the wild.
