Make your own way downtown to meet your bus for a narrated sightseeing tour of Houston. During the 90-minute tour by double-decker open-top bus, pass by City Hall, Minute Maid Park (home of the Houston Astros baseball team), Hermann Park, Houston’s Museum District and much more.

Afterward, transfer to a comfortable coach that takes you to Space Center Houston and NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Although high-profile space flights launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, most of the planning and training for the US space program takes place in Houston.

Your day includes a 90-minute tram tour that takes you onto the grounds of the Johnson Space Center. See both the new and original Mission Control centers and the International Space Station Assembly Building. Watch NASA staff at work, especially fascinating if a shuttle mission is in progress. You might even catch a glimpse of astronauts in training at Building 9. Be amazed at the impressive Saturn V Rocket, which stands 36 stories tall and is the most powerful rocket ever built.

After the tram tour, have free time to explore the exhibits at Space Center Houston, NASA's official visitor center. Astronaut Gallery features the world’s most comprehensive collection of spacesuits. Check out Apollo 17, the last manned spacecraft to fly to the moon. Experience what it’s like to be on the Space Shuttle at the interactive Living In Space gallery and take a close look at a full-size replica of the Space Shuttle.

You can purchase lunch at the NASA cafeteria — you might even spot a NASA astronaut dining there. Or head to Zero-G Diner to choose from a variety of cuisines.

At the designated time, meet your bus for the return trip to downtown Houston where your tour ends.

Customer Reviews

Our visit to Nasa was the highlight of our trip to Houston and would recommend to all.

excellent tour.

We travelled from San Antonio to Houston specifically to visit the space centre. The trip was amazing. We could not ask for more since we had only one whole day to stay in Houston. We managed to see most of the things we would like to see and visit in Houston in one day. We started of with a 90 minutes tour around the CBD and the Herman Park. The tour guide was very informative as well as humorous. We changed bus in the city and our same tour guide drove us to the space centre. The space centre was wonderful. The tram ride to the mission control centre was great. We took a lot of photos. We went our own ways within the space centre exhibitions until the pick up time. In fact, we wish we had more time at the space centre. However, the whole process of buying the tickets online and the actual trip was so simple and user friendly. We would highly recommend this trip. No hustle, just go online book and know where to wait for the initial pick up in the morning.
