What people are saying about Carcassonne

This tour was excellent. Nathalie Molteau was our tour guide - she was informative, knowledgeable, and and gave us a great overview of the old city and history behind it. I highly recommend this tour and Nathalie as a guide!

Incredible experience! the places overflown in France are magnificent! At times, we take control of our flying machine to pilot ourselves, it's super fun and we're full of sensations! I highly recommend.

We had a great time with our guide Nathalie! 2nd time in Carcassonne and she knew how to make us discover lots of novelties, great anecdotes,... We recommend 1000%!!! Another big thank you to you Nathalie!

A great way to experience the whole France while staying in Paris. Great activity especially for children and teenagers. Our teenage daughters rated it as the best activity we experienced in Paris.

Nathalie spent 2 hours with me 1:1, guiding me through the Château de Carcassonne, the museum, ramparts and various places of interest. Fluent in English. Highly recommend.
