What To Expect

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.

Upgrade Options:
• Lunch with an Astronaut: Enjoy an unforgettable lunch with a veteran NASA astronaut. Help yourself to a fresh buffet meal, and spend some quality time with an expert space traveler to ask your burning space questions and get an autograph!

• Space Plus Pass: Includes ‘Lunch with An Astronaut,’ followed by an expert guided tour NASA Causeway to view a space shuttle launch pad, A/B Camera Stop—a camera bunker used during space shuttle flights—and the countdown clock at Press Site.

NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Your Kennedy Space Center tour begins after an approximate 45-minute drive from Orlando. From the Visitor Complex, view rockets from all eras of space exploration in the Rocket Garden, and see an actual Gemini program capsule on display in Early Space Exploration. Walk beneath a massive Saturn V rocket, one of the most powerful ever built, at the Apollo/Saturn V Center and relive Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon and experience the thunderous rumble of a rocket lift-off! Continue with two IMAX space movies viewed on five-story screens – IMAX® A Beautiful Planet and Journey To Space 3D, which takes you on a virtual trip to the International Space Station. Check out the Astronaut Encounter to hear actual astronauts discuss their experiences and get photos of these heroes.

6 hours Admission Ticket Included

Space Shuttle Atlantis

Don't miss the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, where more than 60 interactive experiences highlight the people, passion and patriotism behind NASA’s Space Shuttle program, which launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station. See what it's like to be a real astronaut! Take the helm at the shuttle cockpit; experience the sensation of floating in space; explore a replica of the ISS; and experience the sights, sounds and sensations of a shuttle launch!

City Sightseeing Orlando...
Briannna_S, Feb 2022
City Sightseeing Orlando was a great company! Helen (my tour's guide) was very informative and even recommended certain sights to see at Kennedy. The ride itself wasn't bad at all, about an hour or so. Very cool exhibits to see and would definitely go again
Response from Host, Feb 2022
We’re glad you had a good time! Thank you for sharing and traveling with us. Will certainly pass your comments on to Helen. We hope to see you again soon!
Amazing place
Omar_I, Oct 2022
It is better to go by car if allowed as bus will add more time to your trip. Plan your day early as you will not be able to visit all attractions. It is amazing .
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you for your comments. Please note reservations can be made with or without transport from the Orlando area.

Kennedy Space Center venture with some minor hiccups!
Shawna_G, Apr 2022
Our bus tour guide Dave was great, he had lots of stories having been born and raised in Orlando. The Kennedy Space Center was amazing, very emotional to see. It was one of the major highlights of our trip! We did have difficulty knowing where our exact meeting location was as the Maingate Lake Resort pick up actually lists two different pick up locations with two separate addresses. In case someone else has this issue the pick up is right at the resort not the restaurant nearby it also lists. Viator could not clarify it for us, we had to contact the tour company directly the night before to ensure we had the correct location, and they indicated Viator had old pick up information listed. When I booked I also confirmed with Viator that we would have a tour of the visitor center when we arrived on site, and they assured me we would, and when we arrived we didn’t have a tour just as I thought when I was booking that is why I clarified it with them in the first place, so we navigated on our own. The itinerary that Dave gave us was very beneficial. I give it 4 stars as it was a fun day with some minor hiccups.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for your comments. We will pass them on to Viator.
Amazing time don’t miss out!!!
Stephanie_W, Apr 2022
We had Ana amazing time! The charter was super clean and comfortable! Our guides were amazing and super knowledgeable about NASA and the local area! They provided a guide pamphlet to help us decide what to do for the day since the place is huge! We had such an amazing time and the drop off and pick up times we’re on time! We will be back to do some of things we didn’t have time to do and we will be booking with this service again!

Claire_I, Apr 2022
Excellent way to see the highlights of Kennedy in a day. A longer day is needed but this is enough to see 3-4 of the main highlights
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Agreed. There is so much to see. It really is difficult to see everything in one day.
superb

Janet_W, Apr 2022
on time pick up and drop off. Well worth the money compared to other attractions visited. No pushy tour guide asking for tips. An excellent mix of reality and entertainment. Very interesting for someone like me who was at school in the UK when the moon landings happened.

This was honestly one of the coolest places I've been. It was educational and incredibly fascinating. The launch simulation was pretty amazing as well. I didn't get to see everything as there is just so much to see, but one day I will go back!

Learning and Fun all in one package
Teachertnice1, Dec 2020
Kennedy Space Center is a fun, learning experience. There are many exhibits as well as interactive activities. All of their visual presentation provide knowledge of historical, present, and future space exploration. The fun was never ending and it was impossible to experience everything in one day. This is a great time for kids and adults. One piece of advice: even if the line is long, wait and have the full Atlantis experience, especially if you have children with you that love space travel and NASA.
Response from Host, Jan 2021
Thank you so much for your review. We are happy that you decided to travel. I will pass on your feedback to Kennedy Space Center directly for future guests. We look forward to having you soon in the near future!
