Perfect experience, but no special tour on the day.

Fantastic day! The extended tour with the bus was astonishing and breathtaking. Lunch with an astronaut was fantastic. I would have loved some more time in that event.Our driver, Giovanni, deserves some extra praise! Great driver, funny as hell, always smiling and went the extra (several) miles for us. Will definitely book again if we are in Orlando!

Billy our driver was very helpful and knowledgeable. Only issue we had was was we booked a CC explore tour but due to a government shutdown we were not able to do this. Greyline didn’t seem to know this had occurred

The Ultimate Experience for Space Enthusiasts - a SPACE PASS. When we first arrive at Kennedy Space Center Gray Line guests enter with the guide and get a special meet and greet welcome from a NASA Astronaut! This is an exclusive benefit for booking with Gray Line Orlando, it is at no additional cost however please note there are occasions when this meet and greet cannot happen due to astronaut schedule.

Upon arrival at the main visitor center complex you have time to visit the world’s most comprehensive attraction devoted to the space shuttle, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s new Space Shuttle Atlantis brings visitors nose-to-nose with the priceless Atlantis spacecraft as only astronauts have seen it before – with payload bay doors open as if it were floating in space. More than 60 interactive, touch-screen experiences and high-tech simulators invite guests to “be the astronaut,” bringing to life the people, passion and patriotism behind NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program as well as the complexity of the engineering marvel that launched the Hubble Space Telescope and built the International Space Station (ISS). Guests can conduct a virtual EVA or extravehicular activity; practice docking to the ISS; extract cargo from the payload bay; create sonic booms and glide to a landing on the Re-entry Slide; experience the sensation of floating in space; explore a high-fidelity replica of the ISS; virtually mate Atlantis to the external tank; kick up a virtual chemical reaction to launch the shuttle; get an “X-ray view” of Atlantis’ interior; experience an orbital sunrise; strap in to the sights, sounds and sensations of a shuttle launch; take the helm at the shuttle cockpit, and much more. This is the best expansion Kennedy Space Center have ever had and gives you a reason you have to visit!

Then we would recommend going over to the IMAX movie or riding the Shuttle Launch Experience prior to lunch.

Then it’s lunch time, and your chance to sit down to a buffet lunch and presentation from an astronaut – this is a great opportunity for photos and autographs.

Following lunch it is time to ride the DISCOVER KSC Bus Tour.

This takes you close by the former shuttle launch pads, it is a two hour fully guided bus tour within Kennedy and if you really want to experience Kennedy yet don’t necessarily wish to walk around and read the exhibits yourself then this is your opportunity. On some occasions the bus tour stops in the Vehicle Assembly Buildings for guests a photo stop outside. This is definately a tour highlight and something not to be missed - this inclusion is for a limited time only and we will not be told by NASA when this special stop will end, it! The tour shows you areas not seen on the regular bus tours. The bus tour ends at the Saturn V Center where guests get to walk under the Saturn V rocket and touch a piece of moon rock.

This is a compact day as you have a lot to do, but if you really want to see the best that Kennedy has to offer then this is the day you should book!
