Touring the Kennedy Space Center is a most valuable experience. I'm not much of a Science person, but I am deeply moved by
American History and the amazing accomplishments of the human species. I was deeply moved at walking into the Atlantis
exhibit. The craft definitely exudes the energy of it's many missions. I loved sitting in a room with the actual computers used
in the command center for some of the earliest space endeavors. Touring the compound with a well informed guide was also
a rich experience. Just think, I was right there at launch pad 39 where all of the manned flights originated!
Lunch with an astronaut was a most pleasant experience, well organized and the food was quite good could have been hotter
Our guide from Florida Dolphin Tours was a self proclaimed rookie and let us down a bit in terms of giving clear directives
but the KSC staff compensated.
I am very glad that I chose this tour.
The trip was very well organized. The Airboat ride Safari was very nice and the Captain of the boat was able to show us a couple of alligators. The highlight of the tour is the Kennedy Space centre which is a must do on a trip to Florida. The guide Tom who claimed it was his first independent trip as a guide did an excellent job.
Red was a great tour guide...tattooed tough guy from New York or New Jersey, I don't know, but he had a fun sense of humor and was a great host. He was there every time we needed him.
The day: Board double-decker tour bus at designated pickup location and take ride to KSC with some good tour info along the way. About a hour ride. Dropped off with clear instructions and tickets at KSC and re-grouped at Atlantis. A GREAT presentation and center with both exciting and humbling aspects. The shuttle launch sim was just OK don't expect a Disney Mission to Mars kind of experience but worth it if there is little wait. Otherwise, spend time in the exhibits. We bought the extra package that included the extended facility tour and a mediocre lunch with an astronaut. I am not certain that part was worth it and we wish we would have had more time to spend at the exhibits, especially the Saturn exhibit...we ran out of time before we could see much of it. The extended bus tour did not contain as much as we thought it would and we were not able to go inside the VAB or see the crawlers up close. I am not sure what the short tour would have been so nothing to compare against. We need to go again. We boarded the bus at about 1730 for the ride back to Orlando and hit some bad traffic so the day wen't longer than planned, but it was still comfy and Red took great care of us.
The cost was worth it except I would opt for the basic package next time.
Thanks to Florida Dolphin Tours for a great day!
Local tour company is Florida Dolphin Tours - we got a huge double decker bus with an astronaut on the side, not crowded and comfy seats. Tour guide was Red - he was fantastic and helpful!
Pick up was a little late but drop off was on time. KSC was an amazing place and more than can take in in one day. Would do again!
We only had time for the Aquarium and MOSHI but we plan to visit the Zoo in 2017 when we return to Florida. The price was great for the experiences we had. Thanks, we cannot wait to return to Florida.
Fantastic trip. Florida Dolphin Tours are brilliant

Excellent day and Florida dolphin tours were really good and Red our guide was awesome
The Miami Day Trip and Florida Everglades Airboat Ride were fantastic! The tour guides were not only very helpful but also hilariously entertaining! The tour packed lots of spectacular events and sight-seeing opportunities in a single day. It was great fun!
In December of 2015 my family and I did the dive with the sharks at the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. We had a great time. The event was well organized and a lot on fun. One reason we choose to make the trip to Tampa was that The Florida Aquarium will allow divers to carry their own hands free underwater cameras with them on the dive. Additional pictures taken from inside and outside the tank are also available.
After an orientation we met our dive masters at the top of the Coral Reef tank. Each diver had a dive master with them. We entered the tank through a shark cage. The tank holds 500,000 gallons of salt water. The dive consisted of viewing the abundant sea life from various spots around the tank, some on the bottom and some from the artificial reef areas. The dive lasted 30 minutes. There were huge sand tiger sharks, nurse sharks, a large green moray eel, a sea turtle, and lots of other sea creatures. We had a great time and would recommend activity to any certified diver.
Excellent tour and driver was excellent. My only criticisms would be that the tour wasn't actually quite long enough, it's very easy to miss things here so if you want to see everything, you're going to need a very tight ship or two days if this is your tour of choice. Secondly you have to arrange your own pick up time/spot which is fine PROVIDED you have access to your own emails while abroad which some people may not. Overall though, one of my favourite days in Florida and i've been here over two months!
The tour was amazing while our guide Tiago was very patient teach us to ride the Segways with an amazing easy going sense of humor. So many sites and great Florida history to discuss. We loved every minute and didn't want to give the machines back. Cruising South Beach, Botanical Gardens, and sampling Cuban coffee were the highlight for us. We will be of doing the river tour they run as well.

My kids and I had a great time. they were on spring break and I needed sometime away. They were having so much fun they actuall forgot that they were learning at the same time. thank you for making our Spring Break a memorable experience.
Truly exceptional tour - totally exceeded my every expectation. Clark our guide and driver really set the bench mark on guided tours, from the pick up at sunrise until drop off at home he was superb. Nicky the relief driver kept it smooth for the sleep on the way home. Bob the air-boat captain was really enthralling and the tour of the bay in Miami finished a superb day. Two day trip next time - totally recommend Florida Dolphin
It was a long day, but well worth it. The Everglades is just a great experience, and a must when in Florida. Going on to Miami was brilliant, the cruise around the harbour was very interesting and the guide pointed out things alone the way. We had about an hour and a half to explore Miami, which was not long and it would have been good to have more time. Madeline and the driver were brilliant, we were given a sheet of places to visit, which was useful. A great day out. Thank you.
Had a great time. I was staying in Orlando and didn't want to leave Florida without seeing the beach. The best part was the cruise at sunset - got great photos of the sun setting over the Miami skyline. No, maybe the best part was my walk on the beach... loved waling along the beach in sand and water. Wish i had gone for a swim in the water.
What a wonderful experience - the reason we went to Florida !
The driver was on time, and very friendly, talkative + knowledgeable.
He advised us which areas to visit first, to avoid the busy times.
He asked who wished to visit the museum, gave instructions of time + place to meet! which went very well.
We especially enjoyed the introduction to the Atlantis, and we're absolutely amazed when the screen came up, and it was right there in front of us, as the last clip showed ! Breathtaking !
Our only criticism is that our trip did not include the transport to the rocket take off site.
The only comment made by the driver, was to go there before lunch. No information on where / when the site transport leaves. When we found the area, there was already quite a long queue evident.

Awesome trip - Dennis from Florida Dolphin Tours was great with his commentary. Highlights were Space Shuttle Atlantis and the simulator Space Shuttle take off was great! A full on day but worth it!
It was a privilege to have the opportunity to meet an astronaut, the highlight of our trip to Florida.
If you're in Southern Florida, you need to see the Everglades! Transportation to the Everglades was clean and efficient. The staff at the park was very kind and provided an entertaining day. The cruise was also very fun. You get to see the houses of celebrities and the scenic Miami skyline.

Everything was great about this trip. The weather was beautiful and so was Miami. The everglades were fantastic. The tour guide was an awesome character, he made the drive enjoyable. I tip my hat to the tour company and this trip is a must for any traveller to Florida.

Allthough it rained all the time we were there it was a super day out this day. It is worth travelling to Florida just to visit the Space Centre!

My family had an awesome time on the air boat ride. We saw some gators, birds and snails. Next time we come to Florida we will be taking a longer trip on the boat. We went for the short one this time because we had no idea what it would be like. This is a must do on anybody's next trip. Thank you for the great time!

Enjoyed our visit to Florida Aquarium. Went on the dolphin cruise but unfortunately, did not see any wild dolphin. Perhaps winter is not the best time to go on a dolphin tour.
I enjoyed the tour quite a bit, and it was very cool to see such a variety of wild cats at the facility. Several stories were sad, and it would have been nice to see most of them move around. But I understand, they're cats - no one can make them do anything. Plus, Florida summer heat makes anyone tired. Still, it was informative, and I may go again next time I visit, since the cost of the ticket goes to a good cause of keeping the animals fed.
