What You Can Expect
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! With your ticket, you’ll enjoy 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.

Very nicely done!!! Our friver was charming and informative. Great experience
This trip was amazing and the tour guides were really helpful. Only downside I can see is there wasn't enough time for us to look at everything!

A fantastic day - very informative and courteous driver. Could have had an extra hour at the Space Centre, however, the dining with an astronaut experience was a highlight of our holiday.
excellent tour especially if you only have one day to spend there. the kids ages 11 and 13 absolutely loved it. They wanted to go back another day. there is so much to see.
