Some of the cars on the tram at the SC were missing the speakers. So you could not hear the guide. I do mean missing and not broken- there was an empty sleeve where it should have been. While great, I liked Kennedy SC better. I found it weird that while it closed at 5 everything was closing down at 4. The bus arrived right on time, and she did show us The Beatles on the way back, but my camera was not on - boo hoo.

I felt too much time was given for the Space Center. Figuring out how to order food was a challenge since it had to be done by the kiosks in the center of the room. The kiosk was easy to understand. Too few kiosks in my opinion because we felt rushed with people waiting in line behind us.

The city tour from 10 to 11:15 showed the architectural highlights of Houston and some of the stories of its development. Fairly typical city tour. A bus brings the group to the NASA Space Center for a self-guided tour. It is difficult to take-in all that the Center has to offer in about 4 hours but but you have a chance to see most of it. I would have liked to spend a full day at NASA but this was the best compromise I could find for the price.
