A brilliant day that wed been looking forward to for weeks. It was the Highlight of our trip to Florida. We had a great driver (Kelly) who was very informative and gave us good advice about how to get the best out of our visit. By far, the best part of the trip was the Atlantis building. I would highly recommend a trip to KSC for anyone visiting Florida, and we will certainly be returning! Reviewed by:Philip C.,
