What people are saying about Carcassonne
Nathalie was an excellent guide - with a lot of knowledge, very charming and funny! Since my daughter dropped out at the last minute it was just us two and she didnt get tired of answering all my questions. In fact she said she prefers small groups to make the tour an individual and personal experience. Which was absolute the case for me! And she was very patient when I was taking pictures and pictures - and more pictures. She even gave me some tipps for my trip to Monsegur. Nathalie, if you really get the chance to do a guided tour with Sting, remember: He is the lucky one with you at his side!!
This is just a ticket to get in, use it any time of the given day. For a small price premium it does avoid a really long ticket line. Most of Carcossonne (the medieval city) is a shopping bazaar (which is fun and interesting), but the really interesting part is castle and ramparts, which require a ticket. The only disadvantage is that you are locked in to a given day by buying the ticket ahead of time, and you could just show up and buy a ticket (there doesn't seem to be any limit).
La Cite is close to saturation of touristic and commercial activity. Our guide managed to present the history and explain the many interesting details of this monument so that we became interested, felt informed and enjoyed the visit.
We liked this tour very much. We had two teenagers. Roberto made the tour also interesting to them with lengends and stories. He is engaging and we learned French history and interning information about Carcassone.
Our guide Robert was super knowledgable and had lots of interesting facts to tell us about the city. He was super nice and funny and the tour was very interesting. Both my dad and I were impressed. Thank you!
