Well, I would start by saying that a year ago we visited the Boeing factory in Seattle. Compared to it, the Airbus tour is very laim. This is an assembly line so no manufacturing at all. But the worse thing is that you don't get to see much. Just the talking of the guide and 2 videos. Not as we... More

Went on the A380 tour hoping to get up close to an A380. No. They took us in a bus to an office building. Showed us a picture. Then went up a lift and behind glass from about 50meters we saw an A380. Watched a presentation on the tv screens. Then went to a balcony to see more A380 on... More

I found the tour wanting. It wasn't free either. We had to book using passport details couple of days in advance as they said they have to do security check on us. So I thought we're going to see something special. We joined an English speaking group. The tour was basically 4 parts. First where all the 380 parts were... More

We went on the English speaking tour and then did the aeroscopia museum afterwards. The tour was really good and the guide quite knowledgeable about the Airbus assembly. A few people have mentioned that the factory floor itself isn't busy and there were only a few people moving around - people need to understand that planes do not get assembled... More

A great experience. Saw four A380's ( all Emirates ) being assembled. Also there were a couple of A350's ( Ethiopian airways ) being assembled.

MY ADVANCE WARNING : DONT GO ! This was my worst experience of ANY visit to any establishment let alone something supposedly so scientific and "advanced" technological manufacturing. Absolutely nothing good about this tour whatsoever particularly when you factor in the high cost and time wasting particularly the advanced booking etc. The only lucky thing in our case was we...

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

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

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.
