What to expect
Discover the science of space travel on an exciting visit to Kennedy Space Center. Your full‐day excursion begins with early morning pickup from designated Orlando locations. Upon arrival at the KSC Visitor Complex, explore the Early Space Exploration exhibit featuring stories and artifacts from the first manned US space flights, or hop on the NASA bus for a quick trip to one of the other mind‐blowing exhibits. Disembark at the Rocket Garden to view the first NASA rockets or crawl into an original space capsule for the ultimate (cramped) astronaut experience. Continue to the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you’ll relive Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon, touch a moon rock, and get a close‐up view of the giant Saturn V rocket—the largest rocket ever made at 363 feet (110 meters) tall! Next, head to the IMAX Theater for a complimentary viewing of IMAX® A Beautiful Planet or Journey To Space 3D. Relax and enjoy first‐hand accounts of space travel before heading on to your next stop. Your space adventure includes two phenomenal bonus features: an unforgettable lunch with a veteran NASA astronaut, where you can get an autograph and ask your burning space questions. Then, take an expert guided tour of the Vehicle Assembly Building to view where shuttles are built. Between stops, pass by the space shuttle launch pad, the countdown clock at Press Site, and the NASA Causeway. Explore the center at your own pace, engage in savvy interactive displays, remember fallen astronauts at the Astronaut Memorial, and take needed snack breaks (own expense) in the Rocket Garden or Orbit Cafe. At the end of your tour, a coach will return you to the departure point in Orlando.

Excellent day trip - Highly recommended
Oct 2018 • Couples
On line booking process was quick and easy. Pickup location was very easy to find and get to. Bus was on time and driver made sure everyone knew drop off location, pickup location time and process for getting into the Space Center. We were advised which attractions to see first to minimise time waiting in lines and make the best use of our time at the center. The Space Center was an amazing place with so much to see. We didn't get to see everything as there were so many exhibits. We could have spent more time there as we didn't get to see the IMAX movies.
The bus was very clean and comfortable with Wifi available on the bus.
Lunch with an astronaut was fabulous with plenty of lovely food available at the buffet.

While in Orlando aside from the theme parks take time out and go to the Kennedy Space Centre. Being up close to some of the machines that the human race has made to venture out of space is amazing. With only one replica, everything else is as NASA built it for use in space. It is an great experience. I did the lunch with an astronaut and the quality of the food was also very good. The astronaut was great hearing about his experiences and having a Q&A session with everyone.

This was booked through Dolphin and we had Stewart as our driver and guide. He has the inside line of the place and knew exactly what to see and where to go. For us, he also modified our map with times to be at certain exhibitions which really was very helpful.

Great day out for anyone, you dont have to be into space to enjoy just amaze yourself with the massive achievements.

Fabulous day out a definite tick off the bucket list, so well organised from pick up in the air conditioned coach with the very informative Giovanni who made everything run smoothly with great customer service. The lunch with an austronaut is a must do the food was fabulous and plenty of it with great opportunity to listen to astronaut, ask questions and have photos done. Giovanni also made sure we all got back to our relevant accommodation safely, highly recommend this tour and Giovanni. Don't miss this tour while staying at Disney World Orlando it is a must you want regret it

Incredible experience- a little short of time
Aug 2018 • Family
The bus turned up exactly as stated it would and was air conned with a well informed and enthusiastic guide. The guided tour at Kennedy was great and the lunch was divine! Such a choice of food in the buffet in a surprisingly elegant room. The astronaut talk was interesting and he was so friendly and approachable- a natural public speaker. The tour around the centre was incredibly interesting too and really gave you a sense of history. We loved Kennedy and felt we actually needed an extra day there. We would have loved to have been able to do the Imax movies and simulator- they really should think about a later pick up, especially for people on the longer tour and lunch package as we felt we needed a few extra few hours to make the most of the day.

Was collected from Hotel by Gray Line Tours. The Kennedy Space Center was amazing to tour, so much was on show, with our personal favourite the Atlantis Space Shuttle. We had a rainy visit with Lightning, but the staff made the day perfect. Lunch with an Astronaut was brilliant, learned so much and all whilst eating the delicious food. The Launch Pad Tour was a must to understand the scale of Nasa. Would definitely go again.

Amazing site!
Mar 2018
I had very short time left after business in Orlando and selected to visit Kennedy Space Centre as I always was fascinated by space flights. I am really impressed by the information and objects at the Center. Atlantis Space Shuttle - must see!
Unfortunately I did not have enough time to make bus trip around Cape Canaveral. Next time maybe!
Really happy with everything at the Kennedy Space Centre.
