The tour with Nathalie was one of the Highlights of my holidays

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!!

Skipping the long ticket line is helpful

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).

Carcassonne castle and ramparts are simply amazing

Most of the information is in French and it would help if the best / correct route through was clearer but every turn had an amazing new view to take in

Absolutely worth having a skip the line ticket.

Carcassonne is a very interesting place. There are too many touristy souvenir shops though.
