Fantastic day with great service.
Chris_G, Apr 2024
A full and enjoyable day. Smoothly operated. Great service and enjoyable drive. Nice touch giving the kids astronaut ice cream for the journey back. All round a brilliant day.
Highly recommend

The VIP driver Paul was great and helpful. The bus tour was phenomenal. Thank you Margaret and Noble. Meeting an astronaut was the best!
Driver was informative and did a great job getting us to and from the KennedySpace Center.

Basically not having to drive yourself and snacks provided along with tickets and everything you need.
Great tour of space history and what is to come.
Luke_B, Nov 2023
Seeing the Shuttle Atlantis was a highlight of the day. Also the Saturn V and Apollo display. Was disappointed that the tour of the VAB and Launch Pads was cancelled. However, understand that it was due to appreciation day for the workers of KSC.

The tour itself was pretty good, but pricey. But I had a terrible bait-and-switch experience with this operator. Before I paid, when I was checking with them before my tour I asked to be picked up at one hotel (Disney) and dropped off at another (Universal). No problem they said. So I let the payment get processed. After the payment when they called me to let me know the pick up time they said they would not drop me off at my Universal hotel. (Google maps told me it was 7 min further.) Also if I cancel at this point, I would get no refund. So not a good surprise. Driver did not seem to care at all. I'M NOT GOING TO UNIVERSAL he barked at me. So I think I will never book with them again. I only rated it as high as I did because KSC was quite good. The tour operator gets a zero in my opinion.
Once in a lifetime……

Hopefully a scheduled Launch goes off tonite. That would be more than awesome. We did 2 days at Kennedy Space Center and we’ll worth it.
Amazing place to...
Courtneay_S, Jun 2023
Amazing place to experience. Would recommend the special interests tour to be able to experience the whole centre in its entirety. It was an excellent tour.
Yes, the KSC is great, the tour is just an expensive package.
JorgeM_B, May 2023
Was expecting more. A Bus takes you to the Kennedy Space Center, you get the entries, a breakfast bag (no vegetarian option), lunch coupons and the explorer tour tickets. You return to the bus at 16:30. You’d get exactly the same at 2/3 price by going there yourself by Uber.
Shirley_T, May 2023
Fabulous trip and would highly recommend aspects of it. Our Greyline driver Greg was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained on the trip to and from the KSC. He gave us some good tips on what to see and where to get lunch. Ken the KSC Explorer guide was brilliant in delivery of all the facts about KSC. KSC itself was well structed with lots to see and do in the time provided. Only downside for us was the Greyline bus which given this was a VIP tour was very small and the air conditioning did not function well. It left you with very little room to enjoy the included breakfast.
Sunday Tip to Kennedy Space Centre

Great way to experience Kennedy Space Centre. Your guide provided information on the trip to the site. He provided tips of what to see at the centre with the limited amount of time.
Great Tour!
Carol_M, May 2023
Loved the Vip tour and the shuttle launch experience. Our driver was very helpful and friendly. He talked about the space center on our way there and gave us some helpful tips. We had a wonderful time!
There is NOTHING VIP about this!
Stephanie_B, Dec 2022
Mis-sold as VIP, this is NOT a VIP experience for the money! They use a third party (Grays Line) which is awful! Book directly yourself for less that half the cost.
Great time
Paul_R, Nov 2022
Bus Tour was a great experience. John was a great guide and very knowledgeable about everything NASA
Prepare for Launch
Being in touch with history, technology and innovation. The VIP tour is amazing, wirh a professional guide and very kind staff. The gift store is amazing

We are unable to fault the Kennedy Space Centre Experience however we had a few small little issues with the set up of the tour. The tour is stated as providing an elevated experience giving more time to enjoy the space centre. In reality we arrived for opening and left at approximately 16:30 which is 1hr and 30mins prior to closing and before most other tours. Prior to departure when confirming times that we would depart at 17:00 but this did not happen. The Explore tour that was provided in replacement of the guided tour, this was a welcome addition providing a great insight into the centre. Be advised that the tour operates at 10:30 and takes 2 hours. It would have been great to have this tour slightly earlier to maximise time within the centre as their is a lot to see and do. We cannot fault the driver although he did forget to provide both breakfast and bottled water this was refitted upon our return to the bus.
Awesome guide and great day
Andreanna_D, Jun 2022
Paul was an amazing guide! He was able to give us so much great information and you could tell he has a passion for what he does. It was a wonderful day! Would recommend this to everyone! Thank you for such a great day!

Everything from our driver to the tour. Our driver have good recommendations on how to spend our day there and was very informative/knowledgeable on the area and space center. I would go on this tour again.

Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable, helpful and just awesome. Learned so much about Kennedy Space Center and NASA in one day in a comfortable and relaxed setting than I would have ever expected. Highly recommend.
Great KSC Guide
Laura_G, Jun 2021
Our tour guide was great, very informative and knew the best way for us to make our way through the Kennedy Space Center. We highly recommend Paul to everyone! Thanks
