What You Can Expect

Kennedy Space Center Ultimate Experience: Dine with an Astronaut and Up-Close Tour with Transport from Orlando

International Space Station

Discover the science of space travel with an exciting visit to Kennedy Space Center. Your full‐day excursion begins with early morning pickup from designated Orlando locations.

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.

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.

Highly recommend this tour for a fun filled day of space exploration. The highlight was lunch with an Astronaut - a delicious buffet with a speech by the astronaut with a video presentation followed by professional photo with him. Other highlights are the Atlantis and Saturn V exhibits you could spend hours at each plus the mulitiple IMAX movies that are included. Worth every penny! Our driver Nicky was the best!

This trip was just magical. Dolphin tours were fantastic. Red was the tour guide and he looked after us all day. Loved atlantis exhibit, lunch with astronaut was great. Dont bring a bag as the lockers are a nightmare with crowds. Arrive early and beat the crowds. Be aware that if you do lunch with astronaut and up close and personal tour you will not have much time at the saturn v exhibit which is the bees knees. If you are a space nut then do this over twondays and really enjoy it.

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!
