Great day out - Gary our driver was fab, unfortunately people were late for bus going but coming back two ladies decided to be late also we were told to get to bus between 4 & 4.30 they turned up 4.55 ! One of our passengers had a plane to catch that put Gary in a situation, we left at 4.45 but quickly turned round as he felt guilty, we found out they had gotten on another bus home, we then had to drop off plane passenger at his hotel. Gary did everything for everyone, why are people late! Our time is as important as yours. Apart from that a brilliant day out.

Awesome, but don’t book Chat With An Astronaut - Don’t book Chat With An Astronaut. I did it, and I think it’s not even worth it. It was only 30 min, very not personal. It’s more like a press conference ! BUT, the transportation was awesome, and the Center is so great (even if I think it missed some worker to explain us…). You are 100% alone among thousands and thousands sign to read. But it’s awesome to see some real rockets. But you have to like reading and learn by yourself.
