Excellent Tour Company, but the Attraction had issues
John_D
, Aug 2022
Drivers and staff of the tour company were very helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. Could not have asked for better. The Space Center itself was a slightly underwhelming experience, a number of very detailed displays in a relatively small area. The poorest part of the Space Center is the tram tours, for which the reservation and marshaling of the queues leaves a lot to be desired. We reserved a 14:30 "White Tram Tour" (which goes to the historic restored Apollo Era Mission Control), but our group did not get boarded and moving until nearly 15:30. This is not however a criticism of the Space Center tour guides, who were excellent.

1 day is not enough so you must plan in advance to booked the Tram Tour because booking is filled up so quickly. I suggest to come early at 9or 10 am if you want to complete the tram tour plus book as early as possible.

Don’t do this on a weekend. Space centre was so overcrowded . There was no “skipping the line” as promised in the package. And the Houston bus tour was also poor.

The city tour was not bad. Bring water, sunscreen and sunglasses with you if the tour is in summer. Lunch at the space center was a rush since the cafeteria stopped taking orders at 2pm. Many tourists did not know about it and didn't have lunch.

It was a fantastic experience. This was my first visit to the United States and packed in as much as possible. My best thing was when I opened the door to the space rocket Saturn. I couldn't believe my eyes it was such a huge size.Very informative visit awesome. I was there with my daughter 42 following a conference.

The tour was very interesting and gave a great impression of Downtown skyline - old and new. The ride over to Nasa Space Center went smoothly. There, especially the Rocket Hall (blue tram line) was amazing. The tour team was very friendly and experienced.

Enterprise centre was good and we enjoyed the tram tour. The theatre shows were also well done. Just felt that nasa could do more to feature the current space program. The day we toured for example the kennedy space centre was launching 4 people to the space station - but at Houston you wouldn't know that.

Tram tour

, Apr 2022
On the tram tours it would be better if they used ear phones. The noise from the engine made it very difficult to hear what the guide was saying. I think sitting in the last tram may be better than those closer to the front.
