I was really looking forward to this tour as I thought that we would be taken on a comprehensive tour of the manufacturing facility but we were just brought up to a top floor observatory where we could overlook the facility five or six floors beneath us through glass panels. This was followed by a presentation in a mock-up of... More

The "tour" is about an hour and a half. All this time you are in a bus driving around Toulouse Airport. This guide describes what is in buildings - you don't see anything because the buildings are closed! It is the same as looking at a maintenance hangar at any airport. If I were associated with a major company, such... More

Having visited the Boeing factory in Seattle which was amazing, we were expecting a similair experience in Toulouse. We were not disappointed! The tour is well thought out and Emanuelle, our tour guide was very knowledgable about the industry. The tour was excellent value for money, well directed, and very interesting. The rolling programme for the AIrbus 380 was illustrated... More

We visited the Airbus factory travelling as a large group, and attended a presentation held by some of the Airbus representatives before we were allowed to roam around inside an A380. Would only recommend this tour if you are a keen aviation enthusiast.

These tours are a shambles. I want to do the panoramic tour and they only put the dates up a couple of weeks in advance. There was a tour showing every Wednesday afternoon, perfect ,flights booked. Now they say there is only a tour on the morning of that day, too late for me. They have no idea people want... More

This tour is a complete rip off. THEY SHOW YOU NOTHING. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. You take a lift to about 10th floor of the hangar where you can watch a FULLY ASSEMBLED A380 from a remote plaltform behind a GLASS and a HUGE distance. They have 3 hangars with different stages of assembly, but they only take you to the last... More

We didn't get to take the tour. I knew to book in advance, but didn't realize it had to be at least two business days in advance for non-EU citizens. I didn't see this on the website until I started the booking process the night before. Oh well.

My family and I visited in 2013 during the week but unfortunately no tours were running as they only cover busier periods. The website wasn't very informative so just turned up and hoped for the best. We still had a look around the museum but can't give the actual tour any feedback as they weren't running.

Popular tourist destination, check times and languages online. Plane buffs would really love this. We visited on a weekend (not much happening in the factory). A bit heavy on marketing their product.

The A380 is a great aircraft but the Airbus visit does not give it any justice. The French word to describe the visit is l'harnaque. Save your time and money for more valuable and more interesing places in Toulouse.
