Tour guide Amanda was excellent. She provided a recommended schedule to follow that would allow us to see all of the attractions that we can and it worked out perfectly. Also it was much cheaper than booking directly thru Kennedy Space Center.

Bus was very nice, just we were not lucky with the weather, it was rainy sometimes during the tour. We used our choice to take a boat the next day and this tour was amazing. I loved it a lot. Thank you.

It was the best way to appreciate urban art. Our guide had vast knowledge about the artists and their art. We even had the opportunity to see one artist starting her work.

Fantastic trip and a great price for everything included

This was my favorite new experience while on vacation!
