I use them quite often, they are very good, no complaints. Easy to get to the bus and park. I have 2 trips coming up with them soon. Buses are comfortable.

I just booked the NASA tour in March. First time for me. Wanted to give it a try. You board their bus by the American Legion.

Took a trip with them and my only complaint was I had a gps on my phone and the bus driver was traveling at speeds in excess of 80 mph. I thought that was excessive. Since the speed limit on the turnpike is 70 mph. When we departed the bus I ask the driver if she thought that 80 mph was excessive. Her response was to laugh and say no. We made it back from Orlando in less than an hour. I called the company and reported her.

I have used Senior Adventures several times, both for day trips to Orlando or Tampa and for longer trips to Biloxi and Branson. No real complaints and I was pretty well satisfied. A suggested improvement for them would be lunch stops on multi-day trips - I got tired of Burger King or McDonalds for lunch - there are better places to stop.

I’m glad you reported the driver! 80 MPH is excessive and puts lives in danger. I don’t take buses for anything because they are on a time schedule and it is more important for them to get there on time than to consider the safety of their passengers. I think 70 is as fast as I want to go, even though the majority of traffic has no problem pushing 80 and above. Sounds like a death sentence to me.
