We had a wonderful day. Lovely big and comfortable bus collected us on time from our meeting point and the driver interacted well with everyone and gave a good running commentary. Loved the airboat ride, great weather makes a difference and saw quite a few alligators. Dropped with plenty of time to cover the Kennedy Space Centre which was amazing. You do need a whole day to see everything. We even met an astronaut and it was fascinating listening to his experiences. The bus arrived right on time to take us back to Orlando.Reviewed by: Jourdan S, October 2012
KSC is interesting and we all loved the Saturn 5 rocket and other displays. The space shuttle simulator experience was pretty good ( but not so amazing after three days at Universal!). Meeting the astronaut was good but we did not have lunch with him, so we can't comment. It will be even better when the shuttle is on show. Great souvenir shops! KSC was definitely a highlight of our Florida trip.
The airboat ride was fun - it felt very brief but was probably 45 minutes long. We saw very little wildlife and no alligators, which surprisingly disappointed the adults more than the kids. For me, not as fun as I expected.
The bus driver was friendly and helpful. The bus was a new air-conditioned coach.
The long trips from hotel to hotel to pick up passengers was mindnumbing, for us it was 1 1/2 hours before we were on our way out of Orlando.
The Kennedy space centre was great, something different to all the theme parks, and educstional for the kids.
If you didn't see alligators, the airboat trip wasn't very exciting. A shame
Was a great experience and well ballanced day; thanks also to the tour guide......Reviewed by: Ronny K, September 2012
It all went very smoothly, pick up on time, good driver, modern air-con coach with video feed of kennedy space centre information, airboat ride was good fun, saw some aligators, lasted about 30 mins, it would have been nice to be offered a cold drink perhaps though. Kennedy space centre was interesting but we maybe had too long there - in my opinion 4 hours would have been enough. Excellent photo opportunities!Reviewed by: Sandra H, July 2012
the airboat ride was fun.lucky with the weather considering thunder storms later.boat captain did a good of positioning the boat to catch sight of alligators and give a good narative on their feeding habits.overall a well worth it trip.
I have always wanted to visit the kennedy space centre.just fantastic better than I could ever have dreamed of.we were there for six hours and I still never got to see everything.will definately go back the next time i'm in florida.
Very enjoyable and worthwhile. Kennedy Spece Centre great visitReviewed by: Anthonea R, November 2011
I was mistaken that this "Everglades" refers to the Everglades National Park but it wasn't. Was slightly disappointed but nonetheless, we did see 2 crocodiles despite the flooded banks and the airport safari ride was enjoyable enough.
Kennedy Space Center was an eye opener and learnt lots of stuff. Wasn't never a big space fan but seeing all the exhibits were impressive enough! in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the trip!Reviewed by: Jo, Singapore, November 2011
This was a good trip BUT we did not do an Everglades Airboat ride. We did an airboat ride on the St. John's River. It was still fun but you should change the title and description so it is not misleading.Reviewed by: Wendy S, November 2011
The tour operator was great and very helpful in all aspect of the tour. Would recommend this tour to anyone.Reviewed by: PATRICK L, Australia, October 2011
