Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Spend a day marveling at the magnificence of space travel at the Kennedy Space Center. Your full-day tour begins with early morning pickup from select Orlando locations. Grab a seat on the coach and relax for the ride to the space center.

Upon arrival at the KSC Visitor Complex, you're free to tour the stellar visitor complex at your leisure. Board the NASA bus for a quick trip to one of the many mind-blowing exhibits like the Early Space Exploration exhibit featuring stories and artifacts from missions like Gemini, or the Rocket Garden to view the first NASA rockets. Kids (and adults!) love getting interactive at the Children’s Play Dome.

Continue to the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you relive Neil Armstrong’s moonwalk, 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. Then take in a complimentary showing or two at the IMAX Theater. And don’t leave without getting a full-sensory space experience at the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, featuring more than 60 interactive experiences!

Between stops, 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 returns you to the departure point in Orlando.

The way to see KSC, especially if you only have one day. We were looking for something to do in the Orlando area that wasn't a theme park and really glad we picked this.

Lunch Should be "Scrapped"
Kathleen_M
, Feb 2020
The overall day was wonderful. It was well planned and executed. The one event that I believe was over rated was "Lunch with the Astronaut" While, Commander Duffy was engaging and intelligent, the lunch left much to be desired. The choice of salads were either wilted or strange combinations (cole slaw with grapefruit). The choices of proteins were either dried out or overcooked. For the price of the luncheon, your time and money are better spent elsewhere. You can meet the astronaut at different times of the day for no extra charge. There are other places to eat. And you will have more time to spend at the Astronaut Hall of Fame and the Trip to Mars

This was a very interesting trip. History is being created there every day. There are lots of short shows and many exhibits to look at one of the best things for me was the bus tour. It is a must go see if in Florida. My only problem was that the trip was a bit to long for us.
