Super worth it - ticket also includes priority access to the Castle which is a great advantage as queues to buy tickets were really long and there's no shelter for those waiting. Bus was on time for departure and arrival.

Great trip and bus was on time and comfortable. Carcassonne was beautiful and food there was excellent. Had two young girls and they enjoyed the trip and the castle a lot. Would recommend

Plenty of time to take a close look at everything and also to take a lunch break.

Fantastic beautiful medieval town. The whole city is an open museum.

Wonderful and will recommend it for a good day out of Toulouse
