What people are saying about Carcassonne

Nathalie gave us a wonderful tour of the Cité of Carcassonne! She managed to pitch her descriptions so that they held the attention of kids and adults at the same time! The visit of Carcassonne was a much better experience due to how she shared her knowledge of place and historical context with us!

This tour was excellent. Nathalie Molteau was our tour guide - she was informative, knowledgeable, and and gave us a great overview of the old city and history behind it. I highly recommend this tour and Nathalie as a guide!

Excellent guided tour. Nathalie knows her subject very well. We found out lots of little details that we would otherwise have missed. A great way to get to know more about Cite de Carcassonne. Recommended.

Nathalie spent 2 hours with me 1:1, guiding me through the Château de Carcassonne, the museum, ramparts and various places of interest. Fluent in English. Highly recommend.

Nathalie is a very good guide. We enjoyed the 2 hours tour.
