  • Very interesting place to visit if you are into aviation. 2 big museums to look at with some nicely kept aircraft. Then take the A380 production tour its very good.  more »
  • We collected in the Museum of Aeroscopia (that Yes well worth a visit), got us into a bus in which we moved to the Airbus factory (on the side) and there we got to enter a building in which a glass window on the top floor you could see the hangar where are A380 (although at the time of the visit there was no operator so you could not see it running despite being a weekday and not the lunch) and on the opposite side of the plant went to a few balconies which gave to the tracks where they were parked the Airbus waiting for flight tests with them. Then we returned to riding on the bus to return to the Museum of Aeroscopia, which got us into a room where projected videos of telemetry from the first take-off of aircraft. The explanations of the guides very basic, and why I am not an engineer as many of those who were in the Group and whose questions were left unanswered. We just discovered some detail that we had not read before the visit (and we are not passionate or knowledgeable in aircraft). We have been a disappointment, especially my teenage son. We were expecting us much more. And they can't take photos. Positive data: there are guided tours in Spanish, good communication with the Centre of Toulouse with the tram line T1.

  • Flawless despite the rigor of the registration organization. Tour "on time", great guide, very informative explanations of the Assembly of the A 380 line. Moving on site (areas of assemblies) and areas of tests are worth the trip. In short a very good time.

  • I'm really passionate about commercial aviation, and usually spend my whole holidays visiting aviation museum and tacking scenic flight. The tour of Airbus factory was really disappointing. Paid a lot of money for two guided tours: in the first one, the A380 tour, after a short video presentation the guide give you same trivial details about the process of sub-assembly around the Europe followed by the terrace visit, over the final assembly line. Not much more. The second tour, Airbus factory panoramic tour was even worst: Same short video and talk, followed by about one hour of tour onboard a bus outside many factory buildings. the bus simply stop, the guide explain you what happens inside but you are not allowed to descent the bus, nor enter the building. Spare money and limit your visit to the Aeroscopia museum.
  • Great experience for all the aviation lovers. And not only Awesome overview of how the planes are made and put together. Very interesting. Shame you cannot actually enter the manufacturing area!
  • The tour is only OK. Half the tour is driving the bus around the assembly hall. After this, visitors can see half assembled planes through the visitors window. A guide supports this with shallow information about Airbus. However, detailed knowledge about the program is lacking and her English is only average French. The tour is supported by videos watched by the visitors window. The videos aren't too exciting and can be found on YouTube. The tour ends in a simulated prototype test center which could be interesting but presented boringly. When taking the afternoon tour, it is not possible to visit the museum afterwards due to opening hours, neither is its entry included in the tour price. The timing could be better. Generally, the tour is focused on A380 and the visitor doesn't get in touch with planes. The small roof in front of the museum entrance does not cover rain, which makes it kind of obsolete. There was a huge rat on the runway which felt like the highlight of the whole tour.
  • A380 tour. Very bad. We went from another country just to see movie like in youtube and watch on production site from balcony for 10 minutes :( Strongly not recommended.
  • Tour is only ok. Photos prohibited and that was disappointing. Most of the time you are on the bus just 'passing-by'. I feel that this can be improved by allowing a special part where we can take photos for keepsake. Don't Google maps your way, proceed to the Aeroscopia Museum for the entry. They should put up signages to indicate to us that the Let's Visit Airbus Program is 'this way'. Souvinirs are overpriced with most from China. Be prepared to walk if you have no car.
