Kennedy Space Center Tour
Duration: 6 hours
Tour Code: pcv-001
On a trip to Kennedy Space Center, a day becomes an odyssey for the entire family as you experience the thrilling past, present and future of America's space program.
Your tour begins with a short ride from the pier to the Kennedy Space Center. En route, your personal guide will brief you on your Florida Space Coast visit. You will leave the coach outside the main entrance in order to pass through a security check. Once inside the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex, guests will be escorted to designated KSC coaches for a bus tour of restricted NASA property. At each stop, you will rejoin a different coach (This may require some waiting in lines during peak periods).
On your tour of the secure areas, you will have an close-up view of the space shuttle launch pads (closer than regular guests are allowed), see one of the largest buildings in the world - the vehicle assembly building, and visit the award-winning Apollo/Saturn V Center. Here, you will relive the launch of the massive Saturn V rocket and enjoy a front-row seat as man lands on the moon.
Your personal tour concludes at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, where you will have the opportunity to touch a piece of Mars, enjoy an IMAX space film and "The Shuttle Launch Experience" which will take visitors on a simulated shuttle launch beyond the boudaries of Earth.
At the conclusion of your Kennedy Space Center experience, you will board your coach for the return transfer to Port Canaveral.
