Informative, interesting, picturesque. I would highly recommend this tour to in and out of towners. Much to learn, much to see and some exercise as a bonus. Vanessa was our tour guide. She could not be more personable, enthusiastic or knowledgeable.

City tour was great, very informative, appreciated the two 5 minutes stops for photos and stretching. The Space Center is a bit flashy and overwhelming but once you settle in, there is some fascinating stuff.

Rachel was great- friendly but professional. She had huge amount of information and imparted it well. Even gave us suggestions for a quiet lunch spot after the tour!

Experience that left me speechless and now I share my stories. Childhood dream turned into reality. ✨

Vanessa was amazing! Knowledgeable and friendly and simply an excellent tour guide!!
