    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: 9150 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819

    The final meeting point for the tour vehicle is in International Drive, you will leave from this area.

    Stop At: NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Space Commerce Way, Merritt Island, FL 32899

    After we depart Orlando you will have a narrated journey to Kennedy Space Center. When you arrive there is a welcome presentation by a NASA Astronaut – this happened on Wednesdays & Saturdays and is exclusive to Gray Line Orlando guests. Once you are inside the Gray Line guide will accompany you into the Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibition.

    This comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle brings you face-to-face with the priceless Atlantis spacecraft as only astronauts have seen it before – with payload bay doors open as if it were floating in space. There are more than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators allowing you to “be the astronaut,” bringing to life the people, passion and patriotism behind NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program.

    At the Shuttle Launch Experience, this simulator ride replicates the sights, sounds and feelings of a shuttle launch. You'll go on an incredible journey through space, orbiting Earth aboard a space shuttle. This one-of-a-kind, motion-based simulator is the only realistic simulation of a launch ever created. The 5-minute experience sequence culminates with a breath-taking view of the Earth.

    On the narrated NASA bus tour, you will drive past the newly renovated launch pads, and the Vehilce Assembly Building until you arrive at Saturn V Center. Here you will find yourself standing inside the launch control room and looking at an actual Saturn V rocket - the largest rocket ever to fly! Within this facility you get the chance to touch a piece of moon rock.

    After the bus tour, you will have a little more time to enjoy the visitor center before leaving to see the airboat ride. But the complex has many breathtaking exhibitions – from walking through a garden like no other, filled with rockets, to seeing 3D IMAX movies to feel like you are walking on the moon, there is so much to see and do.

    If time allows be sure to check out Heroes and Legends. You will hear the stories of the past, learn about the history of the space program through the Gemini & Mercury missions….. the Astronaut Hall of Fame is also within this space, where you can honor all the American Heroes that have taken to space flight.

    Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: St. Johns River, Nio Address, FL

    Following your time at Kennedy Space Center, you'll experience the swamps of Florida on a 30-minute airboat ride.

    Wildlife often seen can be alligators swimming in the river, cows walking the banks and many birds flying around the area.

    The Fish Camp is a very rural area with a little rustic bar and store inside. It has some tables and chairs you can sit back and relax to watch the river whilst waiting for the tour vehicle to return. Its an exciting yet peaceful end to the afternoon.

      This is a full day tour. There are so much to see in Kennedy Space Center. Make sure you don't miss the Imax movies. The Airboat Ride is also interesting. It was a beautiful and warm afternoon and we happened to see many aligators along the swamp area. At one point, we are only 3 feet away from the aligator - a real close look at it. Amazing!!!

      Mitch is our bus driver and guide and he is very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend to others especially ones who have never been to Kennedy Space Center.

      The only comment is we weren't able to see everything in Kennedy Space Center since we have to leave at 3:30 pm for the Airboat Ride. However, we had a good time!

      The tour was pretty good! Would've liked to have stayed longer at the Kennedy Space Center. The kids enjoyed the air boat ride, although we didn't get to see any gators in the wild.

      In one day you spend more time in the bus than at the center. Pick up at 7.30am in the morning, but the tour only starts at 8.30 and we only got to KSC at 10 am, and in the in evening the drop off was really really late 8.45pm Since the queue for the bus tour was long more than one hour we did not get to do it. The airboat ride was not interesting... If you do this just to see a few scattered bulls and one alligator which does not seem real, it is a waste of time. We went back to our hotel tired and were not satisfied with our day out...

        Calificación General: 2/10
