After pickup from your selected location, it’s just a 45-minute drive by bus from Orlando to the Kennedy Space Center. When you arrive, embark on a space adventure from the Visitor Complex as you explore the many world-renowned exhibits. Visit the Rocket Garden to see the Redstone, Atlas and Titan rockets that first put NASA astronauts into space.

Short of becoming an astronaut, there’s no better way to catch a glimpse of Kennedy Space Center than on a narrated bus tour that delivers you to the launch control room to experience the historic Apollo 8 send-off. Then head to the Apollo/Saturn V Center where you’ll witness Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. Here, walk under a massive Saturn V rocket and marvel at its 363-foot (110-meter) height.
