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

We booked two tours both in English, the first was the panoramic tour that incorporated the whole airbus site. The tour guide spoke perfect English I think he may have lived in the U.K. or had an English speaking parent. He was however slightly monotone and kept having a sharp intake of breath through the microphone becoming irritating in the... More

We made the tour for the airbus A380, is really good to realize the size of this big airplane, but the tour is poor, the english is not good and you only get to see a small part of the plane and a few planes builds, I saw a program in natgeo about this plane and I think is the... More

In general it's a great opportunity to get a deeper insight into this fascinating industry. The guide was giving her best, however sometimes she was struggling a little and could not give clear answers... The only thing, which really disappointed me was the A380 mockup. It smelled moldy and was more gross than interesting. I am sure you can get... More

This wasn't something we had thought to do until the friends we were staying with suggested it. We got the third degree when we called to book - full names, dates of birth, passport numbers, my maiden name. We almost expected a full body search when we got there but they barely glanced at our passports. The tour was great.... More

Fun and interesting although I admit that the guides could do a better job... However, still something to see if you like the industry and want a glimpse at one of the most amazing airplanes ever invented, the A380.

The headquarter of Airbus is at Toulouse, so it's one of the things that you can't see everywhere. Will be a memorable experience

This was my aircraft crazy 10 year old son's 'must do' while we were in France. The information presented was factual but lacked any imagination; the guide presented the facts but with little flair or excitement. The factory tour on a Saturday allowed us to look down from a viewing deck to the assembly area but, with no-one working, it... More

We travelled to the 'Lets visit Airbus' site by public transport from central Toulouse; metro and tram followed by a brisk walk. We did 2 tours; the Airbus A380 and the Airbus Panoramic. Both were led by the same excellent guide. We saw all of the Airbus fleet on the ground and the huge Beluga freight planes, and an A380,... More
