Travel back to medieval times with a guided tour of the walled Cité of Carcassonne and a visit to the fairy-tale Château Comtal (optional). Tailor your tour to your interests and enjoy either a 1.5-hour stroll around the hilltop battlements and historic sites, or a tour with lunch, including a visit to nearby Minerve, a wine tasting excursion or a sightseeing tour of Toulouse.
Jacqueline was one the best guides we have ever had. She really knows the history of the fortress and how it developed over the years. She brought to life through animated stories what it was like to live, defend and attack Carcassonne. I would recommend this tour and especially Jacqueline to anyone.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to France! Mme. Grillon knows her subject intimately and tells the history of the Castle and Cathedral in captivating detail. Two hours was hardly enough time to take it all in! Regretfully, we were detained in arriving in Carcassonne, and Madame very graciously extended her day to give us the full tour regardless and in the rain! Many thanks to this exceptional guide for a very memorable experience!
