Our guide was Rocket Bill & he was AWESOME! Very knowledgeable & shared his knowledge. My friend is recovering from a broken knee, so very slow, and Bill was very patient & talked while we waited for her. He offered to take our heavy bags to the car while we went on the guided tram ride. I'd ask for Bill again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind remarks. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Hope you have a pleasant and safe trip home. Cheers, Bill

This tour was great. So glad that we chose a private guide as NASA is huge and our wonderful guide, Bill, helped us navigate the "must see" parts. Bill was so knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour and Bill as a guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ashley, Thank you for the very kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you, and I am so glad you enjoyed the tour. Cheers, "Rocket Man" Bill

We thoroughly enjoyed our day at NASA, with Rocket Man Bill. In fact, we think it was one of the best tours we have ever done. We have three kids and Bill engaged with them so well and he kept their attention for the whole day. We felt very privileged to be on a tour with someone with so much knowledge and expertise of rockets and space shuttles. We now want to learn more about the upcoming Space programs as a family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anita and Brian, Thank you for the very kind words. It was a pleasure to meet your lovely family and spend a fun day together touring the Space Center Houston. I wish you all the best and look forward to when we might meet again. Cheers, "Rocket Man" Bill
We had a fantastic tour at Houston Space Center with Bill. He was so interesting and had so many amazing facts about the Space Program we were enthralled and thoroughly entertained. A Rocket scientist to spend time with at NASA...doesn't get any better :) We learned so much during our fun day. Bill was so accommodating and we were so comfortable in our trip from the Airport to the Space center and with all our bags he made it easy access through the center. Was the best 6 hour layover ever!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, Thank you for the very kind remarks. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you and your family. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour, and wish you safe travels. Cheers Bill

Bill did an amazing job with our tour group. Bill kept our youth engaged and answered all their questions. It was a very educational tour of JSP Rocket Park. Our time with Bill was well-spent time!

***** 5 Stars for "Rocketman" Bill!! If you're in the Houston area do yourself a favor and go on this amazing tour with Bill. From a gentleman who was on the "inside" of the space program we learned so much!! I can't recommend this tour with Bill enough. Thanks again for such a wonderful afternoon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you and I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Cheers, Bill

William "Rocket man" provided us with an exceptional experience on our recent trip to Houston. We were in town for only a day, and wanted to experience as much as possible; Bill did not disappoint. He picked us up at the hotel and proceeded to show us some highlights of NASA. We then enjoyed a beautiful lunch at a seafood restaurant that Bill recommended. After lunch we saw the San Jacinto monument, and the Texas battleship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you enjoyed the guided tour. It was a pleasure to meet you, and I hope you have a wonderful time during the rest of your trip. Cheers, Bill

This man is fantastic. He not only know exactly what he is talking about, but he actually was involved in the building of these space rockets. He is articulate and friendly, and goes out of his way to answer any questions you may have, in language that is easily understood. Would unreservedly recommemd Rocketman Bill.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the very kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you, and I am so glad you enjoyed your tour.

"Rocket Bill" was indeed the real deal. Very knowledgeable and engaging throughout the several hours that passed so quickly.

Now I'll be reading more about the missions and personnel!!

Hiring a local tour guide from Tours By Locals was one of the best decisions I've made in a long time, and "Rocket Man" Bill was worth every penny. A legitimate retired rocket scientist who spent many years working on rocket engines, Bill was engaging, professional, and erudite. He knew short cuts around lines, rearranged the day's events as weather and changes in the crowds needed, and thought about just about everything, including rest breaks and photo opps. Extremely knowledgeable and very recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed the opportunity to meet you and your family and spend some quality time together. I am really glad you enjoyed the tour of the Space Center Houston, and thank you for the very kind remarks. All the best, Bill
We had all been looking forward to this tour and it did not disappoint. After a tasty breakfast we were fascinated with the exhibits. Then a great tour of the space shuttle. Lunch with an astronaut was a interesting personal insight. The tram tour gave a chance to relive something from the past-mission control. Finally, my personal favourite was the rocket park. All the time our guide, Bill the rocket man, added so much with personal knowledge and was always very helpful. What a memorable, great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure meeting you. Glad you enjoyed the tour, and thanks for the kind words.
