I've done the tour many times, as an airline pilot myself flying the aircraft and trained in Toulouse. I had the luxury for one more visit with friends. They enjoyed very much! Merci mes amis !

To qualify this review I will say from the outset I am not an anorak or an enthusiast of aircraft and we only went to the factory because our friend works for Air Bus and it seemed like the polite thing to do. However, we both really enjoyed the visit. It seems to me that most people in Toulouse know... More

Only advance bookings accepted and passports required. 15.50 euros one tour and 23 euros for 2 tours. Reduced prices for under 25 years like a lot of other French attractions. Had one real plane enthusiast in our group but all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Ensure you book tours in your language . We did the 1 pm panoramic... More

A lot has been said about the"lack of activity" or "you need to go on a weekday". I have an aviation background and was there on a Saturday. Whilst initially concerned I realised it Does Not Matter because the nature of the assembly process is you will be lucky to see actual assembly. The tour starts with some R&D background... More

I was shocked to see so many folks wanting to take a tour of the Airbus Final Assembly Plant in Toulouse. Despite the crowd, the tours were great. Both guides explained everything well. Seeing where they are assembling the 380 was fab! Several commented that it was much better than the Boeing Tour n Seattle. We were explained how the... More

If, like me, you're a bit of an aviation geek, then this is one for you. You get to see the massive hangars at the plant; you get close to the production line where the A380 is being built; and, best of all, you get to play with a mock-up cockpit of an A320. No photography is permitted, and you... More

I went ten years ago to the Airbus Factory tour in Toulouse France. Flew from CDG on AF for the day, spent the night at the Crowne Plaza Toulouse and flew back the next day. To get from downtown Toulouse to the Airbus Factory was not easy and very expensive by cab. Once there, it was not as organized and... More

I visited here with my nephew and his friend aged 12 & 11. We went on the panoramic tour first and this was interesting for me but not so much for the kids. On this tour you stay on the bus and drive around the outside of the various parts of the site. The scale of the buildings is phenomenal.... More

Well organised tour. The English speaking guide was easily understood and had good knowledge of Airbus operations and the vast Airbus site at Blagnac. There are different tours, I did the A380 tour. I was surprised by the number of women doing the tour. My wife elected to wait in the car and read up about our next stop, Carcassone... More
