We loved our tour with Xavier. He is very interesting, entertaining and a bit quirky - just like our family! We were delighted he was able to accommodate our VERY last minute request to change the time of our tour.
Don't bother with a tour. It is easy to walk the town on your own and the guide did not add any great insight. This did not a nclude an
Tour inside the castle. Money would be better spent going in the castle. The rest can be seen on your own.
Carcassone is a magical village within a fortified area. Very commercial and over restored unfortunately but none the less interesting. Our guide while knowledgeable was a little too serious and lost our interest.
