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.

The A380 is a majestic airplane which I was able to enjoy on several business trips. So visiting the A380 production site was a must for us when we visited Toulouse. Alas, we felt that Airbus wasted an opportunity to convey a feeling for the plane's class and grandeur during the tour. The tour began in a container-like building, with... More

You are probably expecting to get a FACTORY tour and see an Airbus being assembled. Sorry but you WONT. This is a truely awful waste of time. Watching planes from an airport car park is much more interesting. You get loads of chat, even more videos, shown some prototypes way in the distance, from a viewing gallery, more videos and...

As a frequent traveller and therefore a frequent user of Airbus aeroplanes, I was keen to visit the factory and see how they are constructed. The tour takes about 1.5 hours and covers 3 main areas - 20 minutes or so on the certifications of the airbus A380 including being in a telemetry room looking at the different displays and... More

I was looking forward to seeing the inner workings of the Airbus 380 but was disappointed by what was offered. Although the guide was well versed having been a pilot the content was not what I was looking for. The beginning of the tour focused on the first test flight of the A380. This lasted about 15 minutes. It did... More

Not a bad tour. It's set in three stages - the first flight, the visit to the hangers where they make the A380 and then a visit to the mock up of the plane where you can sit in the (dated) seats. The tour felt pretty shallow to me. The English speaking French guide clearly knew a lot about the... More

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 !
