Our tour was amazing. Both driver and tour guide were so helpful, I would highly recommend adding airboat tour to your day trip as it leaves you sufficient time for the space centre. 10/10! Only negative is drop off took along time due to the many pick up points (over 2 hours) however this is not the fault of the employees. Book, you will not regret it

We had a great time on this tour! The bus was very nice and comfortable and our guide, Oscar was very knowledgeable and gave a great itinerary for us to follow. Our driver was great too, we felt safe the whole time. You definitely need the whole day to see all the exhibits at the Kennedy Space Center. So happy we did this on our trip to Orlando!

Whether you find space exploration is fascinating, or even if its not really your thing, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is an experience that will leave you in awe and full of inspiration.
