Without a doubt, the group I went with and myself are aviation faniatics! We had very high expectations for the Airbus A380 Factory Tour. However, it was not exactly what we were expecting. The majority of the tour included viewing the main bay where the A380s were alredy assembled. We were hoping to see the interior of an unfinished A380... More

We did this trip 4 years ago and it has indeed changed for the better despite the fact the trips are very busy. Book in advance using the mandators website to avoid waiting around. We chose a trip in English as there was less people and although the guide was knowledgable her English was quite hesitant. The trip consists of... More

I got the chance to visit the Factory in April 2014 while I was in Toulouse for a business trip. As an aviation enthusiast, this visit was a must-do for me. I was really impressed with the guided tour. This trip allowed my eyes to feast on all the airbus beauties (I'm referring to the planes) and of course I... More

Let's start with some logistics: 1. If you're using a GPS enter Allee Andre Turcat not the Rue Franz Joseph Strauss at the bottom of your emailed ticket. The tour building is at the end of this Allee, 2. Once you get there, follow the signs for Aeroscopia which is where the Airbus tours starts. The signs for 'Let's visit... More

I really enjoyed this tour. I had flown to Europe on an A380, my first time on one, so I think that enhanced it. I found the whole process interesting and informative. The plane parts are manufactured in 4 countries and moved to Toulouse for assembly. It is probably rather boring for children but if you have any interest in... More

On August 21st 2015 we visited Airbus Factory on an English-speaking 90 minute tour - so educational and so much to absorb it was magnificent. Having no car getting there by taxi was great but try returning to Toulouse - suggest the tram clean fast and cheap plus Metro.

Incredible in size, incomprehensible in dimensions. An educative tour which provides a lot of interesting information and know-abouts about Airbus. The attractive tour is something completely different as experience during a holiday or as a one day out.

A really disappointing visit, in fact, a waste of time, effort and money. Better off heading to Heathrow and seeing them there!

A well conducted and described tour in English. Everything is so large and it really needs something to give a better impression of the size. This might improve later when the museum is developed, and one can see a mock up or cut away. The other disappointment was the lack of activity - it was the August shut down -... More

Having looked forward to the tour we were a little disappointed on the day. Instead of a walk through the factory and seeing some planes close up we instead saw the outside of various indescript buildings/hangers from the inside of a coach. The tour guide himself was great, knowledgeable with excellent English and willing to answer questions. Perhaps we should... More
