Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

The tour was great. We had an amazing day with very well informed guides. There is so much to see and do we could have spent another day. The lunch with the astronaut was very cool. Mark Lee was very gracious about answering questions and and his presentation about this experiences as an astronaut on the Space Shuttle was very informative.
I would recommend this tour especially for those travelers with kids who might want to become involved in space exploration.
2 small negatives.....the pick-up times from Orlando are not especially accurate and the movie shown on the bus trip back was horrible!..better to sleep if you can.

This was an amazing day, seeing so much and the lunch with the astronaut was truly out of this world. Fred Gregory had some wonderful stories to tell about his time with NASA and the people he met. It was a fantastic day and I learnt so much about the space program.

The ultimate experience was well worth the money. Lunch with the astronaut Nicole Stott was amazing - she was open and friendly and very informative. The NASA bus special tour was instructive. We went back again included in price on our five day pass to finish looking at all exhibits. Tour pick-up was operated by Florida Dolphin Tours. Service and tour guide knowledge was A1.
