Great Combination - Space Flights And Alligators

Great Space Center “shows” and actual Atlantis and Saturn 5 Apollo rocket 🚀. Then after the mental stimulation, a really fun ride through Everglades. Saw over 10 alligators🐊 - close and big. Real thrill- fist time in air boat after years of boating. 😀

The airboat was awesome! More fun then I expected abd we did see a couple gators. NASA on the other hand was not as good as it used to be. You used to get to take as bus tour out to the launch pads and actually get a guided tour with lots of info. Not anymore. The bus drive just drops you off at the space shuttle building. It’s still neat to see but not like it used to be. Also, not sure the tour operator but wasn’t impressed with them. They were all very nice but we got very little information from our guide. They changed the pick up location the day before the tour so we had to Uber 20 minutes further then where original pick up was. They were 25 minutes late picking up and we left the Space Center 50 minutes then we were supposed to after waiting for two people who never showed up. They should have had better command of that situation. Good activities but next time I would just rent a car and go myself.

Thank you so much for your feedback and this is very important to other guests who look to book this tour. There has been some changes at Kennedy Space center during the pandemic as all businesses are running into staff shortages. We apologize that other late guests caused the tour to be delayed without communication but do hope you enjoyed the airboat ride at the end of your day! Thank you again!

The communication was excellent, whenever I had a question, I had an immediate response. The information regarding the pick up location was accurate. The tour bus was on time and the driver was polite and there were some late people. We waited for them but no one complained and understood which made the ride more enjoyable. Enjoyed both trips to the Everglades and the space center. Travelers please tip your servers.

The airboat ride was great, the crew member was fun and outgoing, really giving great historical facts of the area, and lots of tidbits about the numerous alligators we saw. NASA was amazing we wished we had more time there! The bus drivers there and back were very nice and accommodating! My 6yo, husband and I very much enjoyed the whole day!
