Excellent tour of Schloss Linderhof and Schloss Neuschwanstein! A truly memorable experience and worth recommending if you are spending some time in Munich or Bavaria. Our tour guide, Margit, was very friendly and highly knowledgeable. The bus was very comfortable and our driver did a great job getting us from one city to the next.
Although the trip was undertook in heavy snow and poor visibility we still had a lovely day. Both castles and village are well worth visiting. It was just a shame the weather was so bad which impacted on the length of time we had a each stop. Neuschwanstein is lovely, seeing the castle as you walk up mountain path towards it is breathtaking (took around 20-25 minutes in the snow). Linderhof was also nice and interesting but was quite tricky to walk to in the snow. The village was stunning but our length of time there was extremely short. We would have liked more time here to look around the shops.
A great tour to take on a Sunday, when all of Germany is closed.
A well-informed guide and a comfortable bus take you to these two palaces. In the winter, Linderhof boxes up all the exterior statues, so there's not much to see outside. During the summer, it's stunning.
Even the poor weather didn't diminish what a wonderful day I enjoyed. Linderhof castle tour in particular was a standout.i would recommend this day tour anyone. First cass.
The pure splendor of these castles cannot be described in words. Mesmerising views especially atop the hills of Neuschwanstein. Although it was a pity that during my visit in winter, the outdoor statues at Linderhof was covered for protection.
Very organized and professional. Linderhof castle is breath taking!!! A real nice unexpected surprise! One of the most beautiful castles i ever visited (talking abt the inside decoration not the castle architecture) It is as beautiful, if not more, than Versaille. This tour is a MUST do in Munich
Both are spectacular castles to see. Neuschwanstein is like a fairytale castle without the glam inside and Linderhof the total opposite being decorated with so much gold and beautiful original furniture. Take the horse carriage if your not too fit to walk up the hill to Neuschwanstein and then walk back down later.
Neuschwanstein is breathtaking! While Linderhof is beautiful and comfortable. Tour guide and coach are comfortable, it's a very enjoyable trip!
This tour was amazing!! Depending on your activity level, there was a lot of walking involved. Ana was an amazing tour guide! I cannot stress that enough! She was so knowledgable and informative about any questions you could think up, even if the question didn't even relate to the tour. The castles were breathtaking and the weather was thankfully perfect. We had plenty of time to do everything, though if we went in the summer when the gardens were in bloom I think we might have felt a little rushed at Linderhof. All of the gardens and fountains were being covered for the winter, so we had plenty of time at each location.
A dream come true... the woman on the bus was so knowledgeable about the castles and the countryside of Germany. Do wish we had more time at Linderhof but that was the only thing that could have been better.
Neuschwanstein was awesome... I was like a little child visiting Disneyworld for the first time, definitely woudl go back.
What a fantastic trip! Both castles are absolutely beautiful. Linderhof is small and exquisite. Neuschwanstein the ultimate fairytale castle. We loved the short stop at Oberamagau - just wished we had a little longer. Again the houses are fairytale like and like nothing else we have experienced anywhere else. The scenery along the way is stunningly beautiful. Thoroughly recommended as a day trip outside Munich.
This tour was just as it was explained in the booking process. To be clear, Viator books the tour, but the tour is run by a tour company so you are on with others not having booked with Viator. Likewise, the guide is from the tour company. This was not obvious to me from booking and /or reviews. So then, our guide Franciska (sp?) was wonderful. Very good information on the bus both there and back, with time, especially on the return, for resting. She was nmot our guide for either of the castles.
Linderhof was very special and our castle guide was great. Jaw dropping rooms and further interesting info about King Ludwig II. Oberammergau was a delightful stop. A little short, but so much to fit into one day. Neuschwanstein was amazing, but to me more for the exteriors than the interiors--after seeing Linderhof.
Be forewarned, there is considerable walking for Neuschwanstein, no matter how you approach it. My sister, 80, opted not to do that part, but the small visiting area below the castle provided entertainment whileI visited the castle--a very nice museum. So it worked out for us.
All staff were very accommodating and attentive to our concerns.
The tour was brilliant. First to Linderhof to show St Ludwig 2nds villa then Oberammergau for a little pit stop and finally Neuschwanstein. Be warned the tour guidd recommended eating at muller, which is packed, but further down there is a lake with a restaurant called Alpenrose Am See.
This was by far the best tour I have been on yet. I did 5 other viator tours and this was just outstanding. It was the highlight of my month long trip to Europe.
First, they take you to the Linderhof Palace, where they hand you over to another guide that actually works there. You can't take pictures of the interior (which is beautiful!), but you can try. Our Viator guide encouraged us to try, though they seem pretty strict about not doing it. Anyways, you have a bit of time before and after the tour to take pictures outside the palace before heading back to the bus. By the way, you are somewhat in the mountains, and the view is just wonderful.
Then they take you to a little village, which was my favorite part. It was breathtaking. We stopped for about 45 minutes, which was just enough time to get some ice cream (only 1 euro!) and shop for souvenirs (which were really great!).
Afterwards, you go to the Neuschwanstein castle, where they let you go free for about 3-4 hours. The guide does not guide you, and many people were confused. He hands you a ticket with your entry time to the castle, points you in the direction to go, and tells you what time to meet back at and where. There are different trails you can take, or a horse carriage if you like, he gives you a map so you know where to go. Still, a ton of people were confused. Just listen to what he is saying carefully and you shouldn't be confused. Many people weren't listening on the bus when he was telling us all the info. (snoozing, talking to their kids, etc.) The 3-4 hours gives you time to eat, shop, and go to the castle. Make sure you stop at the bridge to take pics!
This was a well organised and enjoyable tour. It may seem a bit rushed to some, and not really recommended if you have mobility issues, but we felt we got enough time at both Linderhof and Neuschwanstein and would definitely recommend it for a great day tour to see the castles, everything is arranged, they recommend a place to eat, so it's made easy. Bus was comfortable and our guide was lovely.
