What people are saying about Orlando

Absolutely loved it! The Kennedy Space Center is an amazing place, definitely worth every penny! And their staff is very welcoming. The lunch with an Astronaut is a fun experience to do at least once! And the tour is a must as well. You want to arrive when the center opens because you'll need all day to see everything :)

I’ve been following the space program since I was a kid in the 60s. This was a an amazing opportunity to go back and see where everything what has happened from. I definitely need to come back at some point when there is a launch going on so I can watch that before I kick the can.

We loved our tour guide Paul! He gave us great advice on what to do first. We had an excellent time. All of the attractions were so informative and fun. Our family of four can’t wait to return!

Jason gave a very thorough description of the Space Center and what was recommended to see during the six hour day. He was extremely knowledgeable of the entire Space Center.
