You can get to "Let's Visit Airbus" easily on public transportation from Toulouse. We paid 2.90 euros each for a round trip ticket. Important: when you get off the tram, turn left, look for the tiny sign, walk one block and then turn left again on rue Andromede. Stay on this street for about one kilometer. You'll see a few...

There are 3 tous on offer. We did the A380 followed by the Heritage Tour with our 11y old son who thoroughly enjoyed both. A lot of interesting facts are offered but the room where the video is shown a tthe beginning of the A380 tour should be improved (the tour starts in the shop so try to be near... More

I recently (August 2012) went on this tour with my wife and three kids. A very nice tour guide but the tour is very disappointing, in fact awful. You are very far away from the production facility and not much going on really to see (even if you had binoculars). The gift shop was really expensive and the welcome building... More

If you have any sort of basic knowledge on Airbus, don't go. The tour is for total dummies and you don't get to see Anything exciting. Flying an Airbus tells u more than the tour ever will

First is a nightmare to get there if you do not rent a car. Second you take a bus to a building to see a video and to see one of the factories bt through a glass,. There is not enough space for everyone to take a seat while the explanation is given and people is not nice and push... More

Great overview concerning Airbus and the A380. I was sorry that we could not get closer to the actual planes, but we were able to visit a model.

Went with my family, was interesting and I enjoyed it. Staff are helpful and pleasant, if you're a pilot or especially interested in planes - it's perfect, and staff will answer any questions. I'm going on the herritage/concorde tour in August! Can't wait!! :)

You watch an out dated video, ride a bus to the building they assembly them and ride an elevator to the top of the building and look out over the building. You can see several 380's from the outside (that's really all you see at the assembly plant) plus you can watch more video's. Lastly you ride the bus back... More

My partner was interested in this more than me, but to my surprise I really enjoyed it. Very factual, you get a talk about airbus, before going on the bus to view the factory. You then return to go inside a mock airbus (which is really large). Tours are done in English, and our guide was very knowledgable. Much better... More

This is a must if you are interested in air travel. It is well organized and very informative. There is a shop to get Airbus 'goodies' but if you miss out on that or wished you had got something, don't worry, there is an Airbus shop in the corner of one of the bigger shops at Toulouse airport. Prices seemed... More
