Interesting tour

The tour was very interesting and the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Would have been nice to go inside the retired A380.

Sadly this tour is a missed opportunity for Airbus. You take a coach to see a couple of airplanes parked in the distance, spend half an hour looking at a map of the airport and Airbus locations, followed by a visit to a viewing platform overlooking semi finished A380s in the distance. Honestly it was very poor and came away... More

It is hard to call this a tour as you don't really see anything. Yes, you get on a bus and ride over the assembly plant but once there you don't see them assembling anything. Unpainted planes are sitting there. The workers are inside, you see nobody moving, hear no sounds. The part where they assembly the plane together is... More

If you are a fan, you should go though you may not get access to as much places as you would like to be. Certainly worth visiting just getting a feel of how a company may affect the development of a city! In Toulouse, either you are a student or you work for/with Airbus.

This is a nice tour for 2-3 hours as there is a chance to go through the museum, but also see the construction of the A380, which runs 400m Euros per unit. It was hard to imagine Emirates airlines purchasing more than 100 of these at one time. Their production capacity and logistics is mind-boggling as Airbus continues to accumulate... More

I am a fan of anything that flies so I jumped at the opportunity to tour this factory. Was attended a conference in Toulouse and this tour was part of the cultural package. We arrived and it was difficult getting the tickets as the ticket lady was unable to communicate in English but lucky for us, someone in the group... More

Had the privilege of getting back a special tour via an invitation from Airbus and i was not disappointed one bit! If you love airplanes you will adore it and if you don't you will still appreciate it!!! All the history from the initial planes to the Concorde to the A380 it's a must do tour and I will hopefully... More

You visit a shed with 3 airbus A380 and a wooden model ! This visit was not much interest. The wooden model is not real, I'm very disappointed because you never enter in this aircraft...

If in Toulouse this tour is a must do - great oppportunity to see how the monster A380 is built. Knowledgeable guide, and good gift shop at the end.

Firstly any negative reviews on here must be questionable.... The tour was informative and entertaining, delivered by a lovely red head minx. We went round the site which was massive, and then into the factory, I was with my brother who is an aviation enthusiast who found the trip amazing. The viewing gallery was quite a sight and helped by... More
