Excellent all the way...
Arrangement is good and the tour guide is very nice, I enjoyed it very much.
Rothenburg was well worth the visit. The coach trip was just a means of getting there. Nothing special.
terrible. i would not recommend this tour to anyone.
Unfortunately it was a complete disaster. I paid everything on my own account and am waiting For Viator to give me back my money.
The bus was great, the activities too and also the Hotel in Hohenschwangau. My only comment is about the Hotel in Rothenburg which very awful and uncomfortable, I was expecting a Hotel as good as the one in Hohenswangau.
We left Munich on August 23rd. The bus driver was disrespectful, not answering our questions, not giving us the appropriate pamphlet when asked. When we started our tour, the bus lurched into reverse before I was seated and I fell. We took the train from Rothenburg to Frankfurt as a result of our experience.
The accommodation was basic and austere. They did not provide soap or shampoo.
Very special. Overnight stay in Rothenburg wonderful, especially as all the day trippers have left. Time to walk the town, do the Night Watchman's Tour and walk the wall which surrounds the village. Simply lovely overnight stay in Hohenschwangau and despite huge numbers of people tour of Neuschwanstein Castle extremely well organised and orderly. Very pretty spot. Although there are short stops along the way bus trip from Rothenburg to Hohenschwangau a very long day.
This is a great way to see a lot of the German countryside without driving. It is an independent tour where you are with one large bus group going to the castles on the first day, another bus to Rothenburg on day 2, another group when departing Rothernburg, and another group when going to Hiedelberg. The only reason I did not give the trip 5 stars was an issue on the first day. When departing Munich, I showed my voucher to the tour guide and mentioned I was staying overnight in Hohenschwangau. However, while the bus was driving, the guide explained there were 4 buses going to the castles, so we were going to start in Hohenschwangau and finish in Linderhof. When I reminded the tour guide that I was supposed to be staying in Hohenschwangau, he was helpful, along with the staff at the Hotel Mueller in Hohenschwangau where we stopped first instead of last on the tour. The result was that all 66 people on this bus were rushed through Linderhof with no time to visit the grounds so that I could be dropped off in Oberamerggau to wait alone and catch the last public bus to Hohenschwangau while the tour bus returned to Munich. Despite this issue, the tour was amazing. The castles are a must-see, and it would be hard to see Neuschwanstein and Linderhof without driving yourself. The Romantic Road bus made multiple stops (which was a pleasant surprise) with 15 minutes in some stops and 45 minutes in others. The bus arrived in Rothenburg around 4:30 PM where a taxi took me to the hotel within the medieval walls of the city. There was plenty of time to spend in Rothenburg before being picked up the next day and getting back on the Romantic Road bus to Frankfurt. All of the hotels were nice. Overall a great trip – just make sure when you start in Munich that the tour guide knows you are not coming back to Munich with the rest of the bus, that the last stop is Hohenschwangau, and that the day 1 tour is not being done in reverse.
Our tour was outstanding. The activities and sights that were included in the tour were exactly what we were hoping for on this trip. Our tour guide, Dirk, was incredibly knowledgeable on both the history of the region, as well as current information on the country. It's not easy to accommodate the various needs and meet the expectations of a group of people on vacation, but the consensus of nearly every one of our fellow travelers was that our tour guide was exceptional and went above and beyond to assure that we had an enjoyable experience. We would definitely go on another tour through Viator and Touring Tours and we would recommend this particular trip without reservation.
Rothenburg is a fantastic little medieval town and the Night Watchman tour is a must. We could easily have stayed another day or two. There was a great little park at one end and from there you can see the whole valley and it was also a nice place to just sit and rest after shopping or hiking around the old town. I would definitely like to go down this again and maybe stay in another town or two along the way.
Value for money, nothing to worry about, all organised in a professional manner.
We had many expectations after reading the reviews prior to taking this trip and when we did it was just fantastic.We went in June prior to the European holiday season and the scenery was spectular. Our stay at Rottenberg was unforgettable, fantastic hotel and very courteous staff. The night watchman tour was brilliant. The coach we traveled on was very comfortable with plenty of stops at different towns for breaks and photo shots. Traveling with children was no problem. Thank you
I enjoyed very much The Romantic Germany Tour. It was much more than I have expected. The driver Andreas and the guide Dirk were both excelent. The hotels were all good. The only thing I did not like was that we had problems with the bus air conditioning and it was somewhat unconfortable due to the very hot days we had during the tour.
The Bavarian alps, castles and accommodation at Hohenschwangau excellent. Bus trip to Rothenburg not so good, the bus went back to Munich (a big waste from our point of view) and the bus driver contributed very little, he explained almost nothing and let people get off at Rothenburg station instead of the main town. Our day in Rothenburg was excellent, accommodation very good and bus driver to Frankfurt helpful and entertaining.
