If you are at Kennedy Space Center, you should definitely choose the Explorer Tour Upgrade. There is an exclusive tour with a guide and an extra slow-moving bus to take beautiful photos. The icing on the cake is that you get off at least two places to take nice photos. I had the father (pensioner) of the current launch director of the Artemis 1 start, who chatted from the sewing box. And up to 50 meters !!! and LC39B or the VAB is not accessible otherwise. A must have upgrade

They could do a tour in Spanish, or at least put on a recorded tape or something to understand better! Because even if you know English, the words are very key and sometimes difficult to understand. Everything else was perfect, a great day at NASA and the explore tour is 100% recommended! We will be back to see Artemis take off..

The Space Center is amazing! So much to see. We really enjoyed the Explore Tour (our guide was John), we learned so much, went places the free bus doesn’t go, got close to the launch pads, saw the Artemis rocket from as close as allowed, saw the crawler that moves the rockets - it is SO worth adding this to your visit.
