What people are saying about Carcassonne

Our guide Nathalie was great, very friendly. She takes the time to explain and rehearse if necessary. I, who did not like history lessons, and well there I was very attentive. We went on July 15th and it was very crowded which made the visit a bit choppy as we had to wait for the families to pass so that our guide could start the explanations otherwise it was impossible to hear something with the cries of children. The visit lasted about 2 hours but it seemed short to us because we were absorbed by the history of the city. We did not visit the castle for lack of time and we regret it. Because I think it should be done to complete the visit well. Remember to wear adequate shoes and no heels because the streets are made of cobblestones and are sometimes slippery.

Punctual guide, smiling (even with the mask), masters the subject of the city. Is available with children (sweet and very patient). Interesting tour of the city. Thank you very much to Nathalie for these 2 hours of discoveries and knowledge on part of the history of our country. “It was nice to meet you! ❤️” signed our daughter.
