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.

Great Tour; One Disappointment.
Dean_H
, Jul 2021
Excellent tour; bus arrival and departures were right on time. Tour guide was very good for the time he was with the group. Really liked the fact that after initial orientation and briefly conducting the group across the KSC complex, you are then left on your own for the rest of the time to pick and choose what you want to do and at your own pace. The only thing I found disappointing is mention of gratuities. I NEVER like it when the recipient of the gratuity is the person who is encouraging the tips. Tour guide, Paul, hit on it three times. Why not just come out and ask me for money, for Pete’s sake? If Viator can get this stopped, it will be a top notch tour.

Thank you Dean for your feedback. I will say I have to agree. Its a shame we fell short on a great tour because of something like this. Your comment will be passed on to the manager so prevent this from happening again.

Good experience but the day was very long
Sherryl_W
, Jun 2021
It was a great experience to see the Kennedy Space Center as this was an item on my bucket list. I recommend considering shortening the time spent at the location. We were dropped off shortly before 10:00 am by the driver and not picked up until the center closed at 5:00 pm. The day was long and there was not enough to fill several hours of downtime.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Hi Sherryl. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. Since the admission tickets are self guided it is very had to determine an average time. Offering a shorter day is something we may be able to look into for the future. Glad we helped check off a bucket list item!

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. Kennedy has so much to offer, we feel that some advanced information and suggestion on what not to miss contributes to a good day.
