We are a family with childrens, so we was searching an interesting monument suitable for all ages. Someone recommended us doing this activity, so we gave it a chance. The" cité de space" is a place were you can find a lot of things to do and learn. There are expositions about different subjects, mockup of the machines used in... More

I must say, after hearing so many people just saying that "the tour was fantastic" and having excitement and expectations (my children too), I really got quite disappointed. The security was so tight that WE DID NOT LEAVE THE BUS! It was almost like watching a video, and I kept on expecting us to actually get out of the bus,... More

Firstly the tour started half hour late but didn't mind that to much. We where taken on a bus to the A380 factory where the assemble on the parts which was good and then shown where the completed ones are but after that and a few videos you head back to watch a test flight and that's it. Would of... More

I love travelling via Toulouse. It is always great to stop at Airbus to see what developments they have done together with technological advancements. Definitely recommend both the A380 tour and the panoramic tour. Like this you see the larger part of how aviation is evolving. Great little restaurants in Toulouse Center when you go out at night reasonably priced.... More

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...
