Our Trip to the Everglades and Kennedy Space Center 2021

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.

We had a fantastic day combining KSC and the Airboat Safari. We got to spend from 9am to 3:15pm at KSC then the bus took those who had booked the airboat safari to do this activity. We returned to KSC to pick up those on the full day KSC trip. The only slight negative was the 2 hour return journey to our hotel.

Thanks for your review. We have tried to adjust our trip times to miss as much traffic as we can but it is still busy at that time of day. Glad to hear the rest of your day went well!
