ABSOLUTELY fantastic. it was a great experience and lunch with the astronaut was a very learning experience. we were very fortunate to seen the brand new Atlantis Center 2 days before the opening. a great bonus. our tour guide was excellent and very helpful. a must see!!!!
It was a privilege to have the opportunity to meet an astronaut, the highlight of our trip to Florida.
If you are a space freak you are going to be so glad you went on this trip
i had the best day it just went so quick my wife even loved the day'.
lunch with the astronaut .i just had a great day thanks
bus driver was so helpfull to all in the bus
Transportation was worth it. Do the shuttle sim for sure even if you cant see all of visitor center. Lunch with astro well worth it (good food, presentation, Q/A). Atlantis to be displayed late summer. Bus tour of launch sites, inside VAB, and saturn rocket (skip saturn show) was the best part.
The bus driver / tour guide is very experienced and suggested good route to us, so we can get more things covered with the limited time. You actually need to go for a 2 days trip or 2 separate visits in order to see the major attractions. It was great to meet and have photos with the astronaut, Tom Jones, the only astronaut that had been on 4 space missions.
We went on the Ultimate Space Tour which was fantastic. It included lunch with an astronaut. The buffet lunch was really good and Gerry Carr the astronaut was very interesting. We could have easily spent more time at the Kennedy Space Centre as there was so much to see. I would really recommend this
Great experience more than I expected with the Astronout lunch. The guided tour of the VAB and launch pad was very impressive. Our guide was very knowlegable. I was impressed with information on shuttle banners and the stored remains of the Columbia to remind all working on each mission how important it is to get it right every time. Finalising this with the Saturn 5 display was topping on the cake. We also had an opportunity to view the Alantis shuttle prior to the extensive work to place it on display. It is very impressive to see an actual orbiter that has been in space many times.
The only conn if I need to talk about one is that one day is not enough to do the tour comming from Orlando and leaving a 5pm. Perhaps an earlier start and later close would help.
Brilliant. Great day -meeting the astronaut was fabulous and he was so friendly. Recommend the Ultimate experience to anyone.
This tour again was excellent, we had a very knowledgeable guide and the visit to all the exhibits was brilliant. A great day again.
Brilliant trip. unexpected bonus when our tour took us into the vehicle assembly building for the first time in 40 plus years. This was a test run for a tour they hope to run latter if NASA approve. Only down to day was some concern re experience of bus driver eg park in wrong place , tickets not ready so time wasted but all round a great trip. lunch with astronaut was also fantastic. Drop off at end of day was painful and add.ed hour and a half to the day
A must trip. Lunch with.the astronaut was very interesting, however the trip out to the launch areas was a highlight. You will need the extra day if you want to spend more time at the apollo site and visit the hall of fame (not included with this trip due to time constraints). The transport company was only average. They were late (pick up was around 8.30) and they do nothing more than drive you there and back.
If you are a space enthusiast do this one. Guides are well read on the space program and this is the only tour that get's you up and as close as allowed to the launch pads. Would do it again, no hesitation.
Our trip was well-managed and professional from beginning to end. We were picked up right on time in a iconic Kennedy Space Centre bus. Our guide was personable and made sure we all knew where and when to meet, we had a very full day including a special and delicious lunch with an astronaut which will stay in our memory forever. The timing of the tour enabled us to see everything that was advertised and we were transported back to our chosen drop off in plenty of time to catch a nightime activity. Many thanks to Viator for a reliable and value-packed tour.
