If you really believe that your dreams can come true, first you need to believe in yourself that you can be able make them real. My dream have came true last week and I finally visited the NASA space centre... I really enjoyed every minute of my journey and the guide was very friendly; his knowledge and the way he talked about anything we went through opened my imagination. Because of Covid restrictions we haven't been in the launch building and it's only one thing I'm disappointed with. Otherwise, I'm very happy I have visited the NASA space centre and I would love to do this again in the future. My journey was absolutely worth of any cent I've spent..

Very interesting, intelligent, lively and emotionally engaging visit. Exhibitions, conferences, 3D films and other well organized activities, rich in didactic and experiential content. Very nice to be able to enjoy them independently in the afternoon in extreme freedom. Professional, expert, helpful and attentive guide. His advice made it possible to make effective use of the time available. Company help desk readily available for any additional information or support.

You should arrive right when the gates open at 8:30. Our driver was twenty- five minutes late ,and blamed traffic. We had to ask through text where he was , no notice of him arriving late. They have been doing these tours long enough to include traffic time just like with everything else The pickups are all over the place, not at all in one area. You could have a pickup at Universal and Disney, then even if you're the closest stop, you have to travel first to the distant stops. The breakfast was a paperbag of juice and packaged products. The tour was not VIP and it was only guided for a small section. The driver constantly took his eyes and hands off the wheel and the road, it was nerve wracking! He would look at the map of KSC while driving at high speed and try to look at water areas for gators. On top of the overpriced cost, the driver also made it clear a gratuity was expected and stellar reviews. We would have been much better off getting a rental or Uber.
