Great tour!!! Our tour guide, Sabina, did a great job providing us the history on our way to Schwangau and preparing us for the remainder of the tour. Once in Schwangau, we had time for lunch and then proceeded on the walk, thru town, up to the castle. Fortunately, the weather was absolutely perfect making the walk and sights much more enjoyable. The tour inside the castle was equally as stunning. Awesome to see all that history. Only downside was the look-over bridge was closed for renovation. Overall, highly recommended! Thank you again Sabina!!!
Excellent tour. The Castle itself was amazing. Th train ride to and from was also very interesting, just to see so much of the German countryside. After a month, I don't recall our guides name, but he was informative and entertaining. Very knowledgeable about the Castle and King Ludwig.
The only disappointment was beyond his control, the Lake Mary bridge was closed so had to settle for a bit lesser views.
I would highly recommend this tour. Just be aware, it's a bit of an uphill hike from where the horse cart drops you and the entrance. Also, lots of stairs inside. But well worth the effort.
Austin, our guide, made King Ludwig come alive with his extensive knowledge of the man, this castle and the surrounding area. A must take tour!
It was simply wonderful and our guide Yulanda i hope i spell correctly was really helpful and nice.
My friend and I enjoy the sight and also finally get to see the castle. An eye opener for me and my friend.
Loved it! So interesting, very well organized. The tour guide had a lot of knowledge not only on the castle but on Munich as well. Everything was taken care of for us. I strongly recommend it.
We were very pleased with this tour. The train ride was a lovely way to get to the castle. Our guide Petra was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable and made an effort to get to know each of the travelers in our group. We were a bit surprised to learn that she would not be coming in to the castle with us, but the tour provided by the castle staff was very informative though a bit brief. The castle itself, and the surrounding grounds, are of course beautiful beyond words! Overall we had an excellent experience!!
Our guide Austin was wonderfully well-informed, amusing, friendly, efficient and helpful. The castle is amazing and the surrounding landscape fun to explore. The company Radius, I think were extremely thoughtful and on a swelteringly hot day arranged a coach for us instead of the train which would have been an ordeal. All in all, a great experience.
I've seen may photos on calendars and in magazines, but seeing the castle personally and the surrounding vistas was awesome. The views from the bridge and from inside the castle are spectacular.
Our tour guide Dallas, from Austin Texas, was very knowledgeable about the history of the castle and made the visit interesting. He also knew a lot about the local breweries in Munich which I greatly appreciated.
Very nice trip. A lot of stairs in the castle.
My mum and I booked this trip through the Viator website and the trip itself was a local operator . Our tour guide was Anya and she was spectacular! We had a really good time on the tour and on the way to the castle, Anya told us the whole history of the castle and King Ludwig and her English was perfect. She was hilarious, knowledgeable and very approachable if you had any questions about the castle or even Germany. Instead of the train we were sent by bus, which was probably a better idea because there was a huge influx of people into Munich. We walked our way up to the castle which was a bit extreme at the start but becomes gradual after the first 10 minutes. For those who cannot walk up, there is a little shuttle that can take you up for 2 euros Anya organised that for a couple of people in our group. The castle is beautiful, the village below the castle is really cute. You can also see the Hohenschwangau Castle from the same area but would have to pay for a separate entry fee to get into that castle. We paid 12 euros per person to do the Neuschwanstein Castle but the interior castle tour was extremely short maybe 20 25 minutes or less and you were not allowed to take photos. The trip was worth it but taking the additional tour would be dependent on the traveler. The interior was lovely however but maybe 12 euros is heaps for it. When you walk down from the castle, you can follow the road right to the bottom and land up at a beautiful lake which is very picture worthy! Overall we had a really good day and Anya was fantastic! :
We had a good time on the tour. Instead of the train we were sent by bus, which was probably a better idea because there was a huge influx of people into Munich. The castle is beautiful, the village below the castle is really picturesque, and you can see what I seem to recall is Hohenschwangau Castle from the same area. I would, however, recommend skipping the interior castle tour. It was terribly short 15 minutes or less, an additional 12 euros per person, and pictures are not allowed. The trip was worth it without that additional tour.
No surprises! Everything whet as promised. The guide met us on time and did a very good job. Excellent
English speaker with a lot of extra information about the area as we made our way to the castle.
Our guide Anyafrom Radius was very informative and thorough. The castle tour was ok but Anya was the highlight.
This was a fantastic tour with a great guide. The castle is high on the must see list. The surrounding is breathtaking. I cannot recommend this strongly enough.
Roland gave us so much history. It was a lovely tour and the castle was amazing! I highly recommend it!
We went to the castle via coach, and our guide, Anya, gave us background information on Munich, the Oktoberfest Fest and Nieuschwanstein Castle. She was informative, friendly and chatty and we would recommend her and this tour. The castle was magnificent, as was the little town and surrounding countryside. Very happy with this tour.
We had a wonderful day trip to the castles with our guide Carl. He was quite knowledgable and got us there on time for the tour times for both castles that they had pre-arranged for us. We were very pleased as the lines of people waiting for tickets and for the public bus to get up part of the hill were very long and had we not done this tour, we would have taken some pictures and turned around and gone somewhere else for the day. Carl got us on a private bus up the hill, and had things timed so that we were able to see everything and have a quick lunch in town as well. We would highly recommend this trip.
Tour guides were wonderful, and gave unique insights to both Neuschwanstein Castle and Munich. The Bavarian beer on the drive back was a great added touch.
Thank you for the great time. The tourist guide Anya always patient and with lovely smile, provided us with essential knowledge about Neunschwanstein Castle.
Also breathtaking view of the castle in the fog :
Great tour of the castle! Our guide was very knowledgable and having the transportation taken care of was a huge plus! Would definitely recommend.
The lines to get tickets are massive and very limited. If you go during high season, you have to take this tour, or one like it. Forget trying to go on your own. The castle itself is impressive, but smaller inside than you will expect due to it never having been completed. I would strongly recommend taking this tour as part of a combination with other Castles, but if you only want to see neuschwanstein, this is a necessary option. If you go off season, just skip this tour. On season, it is a MUST. Or you just can't get in.
The tour was well organized and Astrid was a knowledgeable and pleasant guide. She took advantage of available services such as the shuttle up to the town at the base of the castle and the shuttle from there to the Castle. She shared quite a bit of interesting information on Ludwig and the castle and got us to our 10:30am tour right on time. We enjoyed the tour very much...so glad we took the time to visit Neuschwanstein. I'm not surprised it is one of Germany's biggest attractions.
This really is a wonderful day trip, with gorgeous scenery, the intereting history of king Ludwig II and his castle, full of mistery and beauty. We went as a family, with our three teenagers children and we all loved it!
Our tour guide, Anya, was lovely and knowledgeable.
Thank you, Anya, for this perfect day!
Awesome! Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. She took us to lookouts that no one knew about and told us what to look for as highlights in the castle. The castle was better than expected!
This was our favorite tour while in Munich! The castle is amazing, and there is a beautiful lake at the bottom that you don't want to miss. Our guide, Austin, was wonderful! He is very funny! The bridge was super crowded, but worth the hike to see this beautiful castle.
