This excursion gets an A+!! All of the staff do everything in their power to be gracious, they are passionate about the manatees and the environment, and make sure every person in our 12 person party had a chance to see manatee. Even our smaller kids who were afraid!! The fan boat ride was also excellent!!! We will never forget this experience!

Loved the Airboat ride & KSC was amazing……. But coach was 40 minutes late picking up … then the coach was an hour late picking up at Airboats, Though loved space centre felt like we had to rush round… The KSC wasn’t closing till 6pm but we had to leave at 5pm it then took 3 hours to get back because of the number of drop offs

I recommend this tour to anyone traveling to the Orlando area!! It was such a great experience for me and my family! Our guide was very good and told everyone a lot of details about the things we saw! We will definitely be going back the next time we come to Orlando!

We traveled with our 13-year old grandson and thoroughly enjoyed Kennedy Space Center. It was very moving at different points as it reminded of what we watched on tv in the late 60's through to the current expeditions.

Everyone was very nice. The driver and your guide ensured nobody was left behind, they patiently waited for those who were tutelage. Lots of fun activities for the kids on the pirate cruise and nice crew staff.
