      My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Kennedy Space Center. The Dolphin Tour company excursion, led by Bob and Stuart, was professional and informative. Their suggested time schedule for the center was accurate and helpful. When I called the day before to get the specifics for our pick up point, the receptionist was helpful and directed us to a point with free parking instead of the one assigned. The van was a bit early, so glad we were there ahead of time as well. Note that if you are staying at a Disney property (Swan and Dolphin are NOT part of the WDW resort network) you will have to use or get your own transportation to the pick up point.

      Absolutely amazing! Should not miss! Once in a lifetime experience! Brought me to tears! My 9 year old daughter LOVED it!!! Stuart, the driver and guide gave us a wonderful suggested itinerary!!! Make sure NOT to be late or you will not be allowed into events once they start. Discipline is key here.

      The facility at Kennedy Space Center is excellent with lots to see and do. Very hot day for our visit but plenty of cool areas to visit and cooling mists provided when waiting for buses to the Saturn V display.
      Bus ride to and from Orlando provided by Dolphin Tours. Trip over was good but final ride home was performed by an angry driver frequently exceeding the speed limits with poor and dangerous driving skills that was due I believe to minimal tips received by the touring group.

      The trip was great! Our tour guide bill gave a thoughtful narration on the bus ride over to KSC on the history of US space program including elements of science and engineering. He provided a suggested itinerary of the many options to see at KSC that maximized what we could see in the time available. Kent did a great job driving the bus. Only problem took two hours to get back to hotel, mainly because of Orlando traffic between 5-7:30pm.

      Great place to visit for a single day tour. We could not visit the launch pad because of partial government shut down. Personally, it was my dream to visit Atlantis and meet a astronaut. Live interaction with Astronaut Sam Durrance was a real pleasure. The movies on space explorations in IMAX 3D was a great experience as well.

      Truly an awesome day and if you have any interest in galaxy exploration I would highly recommend this tour! Maybe even for multiple days if you have time so you can eat with an astronaut!

      The best part about this tour is that it is at a real functioning space center and two days before my visit they had launched a rocket from the very platforms we toured to supply the ISS, now that is cool! Every rocket and shuttle, each desk at the control center to the specks of moon dust on the space suits were truly a part of our humanities goal to find more out there, and what is more awe inspiring than that! It was so great to learn about the history of space travel and what amazing and brave people have sacrificed to explore beyond our reach. If you have any interest in space or just want to learn more about our part of it, i would highly recommend this day!

      Really enjoyed this tour!! Tour guide Bill was informative and shared lots of tips. When I arrived there, I felt like I knew where I was going and what to do to get the most out of the day. The ride to and from Orlando was great thanks bus driver Stewart and it was convenient being dropped off in parking lot number 1. Pick up and drop off at the hotel sites was handyand quick. One suggestion I would make is to buy your souvenirs, if you are interested in doing so, from the Apollo/Saturn Center. The selection and variety was far more extensive than the under construction gift shop at the main vistor's Center even with the allure of a 10 off coupon. You will be disappointed in the selection and may regret not having made purchases at the other place. All in all a fantastic day.
