Enjoyable trip to visit the castles at Neuschwanstein and Linderhof with a stop at Oberammergau. Our tour guide was outstanding and we enjoyed all three stops. The castles are amazing, and the highlight of our time in Munich.
A must! The highlight of our holiday. It's a fairy tale world waiting for you outside Minuch. The castles were amazing and the scenery jaw dropping. We had a couple of hours in Schwangau before our tour of Neuschwanstein which gave us enough time to walk around the lake and visit the Hohegschwangau Castle. Our guide was fantastic. Very relaxed and friendly.
Well worth every penny!
We went on this trip in October - we were lucky to have a sunny day and all the trees were showing their autumn colours - our first stop was at Linderhof Castle - in comparison this was fairly small - I think it was his summer castle - we only saw this quickly and it was in a very pretty setting. Then off through a little town where we stopped and could have a coffee and a wander around - where we saw some gorgeous german painted houses and a shop full of cuckoo clocks. Then off on our way to Neuschwanstein castle which was HUGE and MAGNIFICENT. We went on a tour though the castle and opulence was mind blowing. We found out a fair bit about King Ludwig II and were sad to hear that he only lived in his castle for 172 days before dying suspiciously after being declared mentally insane. It was beautiful, informative and very interesting.
Although the fog was so bad that day we didn't actually see Neuschwanstein, the trip was still one to remember. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and gave a lot of really great information on tour. I would highly recommend going in the fall because the colors of the Bavarian countryside were absolutely beautiful. I will be back for another visit in December.
A must to see! Our group kicked off and headed to Linderhof Castle for a scenic tour of this smaller castle, then to Oberammergau for time to touring and end at Neuschwanstein. Francesca was fabulous with suggestions to see or do at locations and full of information! We had a GORGEOUS day of weather and so the views were spectacular from the castles. The only drawback was Marien's Bridge Marienbrucke closed for repairs. Still the views are wonderful and well worth the time to visit!!
Tour guide v good, castles good, enjoyable day all round. Unfortunately the bridge at Neuschwanstein was under maintenance so the best views of the castle were unavailable until May 2016 I believe.
Great tour overall. Not enough time to spend at each sight though. Had to literally run back from Neuschwanstein tour to catch the bus. The guide was nice. The sights are beautiful. In winter less so than in summer as all the statues are covered with wooden boxes and the fountains are not working.
Overall speaking the arrangement is good. But it's a pity the best spot of taking photo of the Neuschwanstein was blocked. Othewise everything else is perfect.
I enjoyed the tour of Linderhof and Neuschwanstein castles. It was just unfortunate that this time of the year did not really allow us to see the splendor and colors of the so-called sleeping beauty model castle. I should return summer or spring.
Our group was my wife and I, our two sons with fiancé and girlfriend plus my niece currently living in Germany This was a perfect day for all of us to share. Brad and the other guides were well informed and we learned much more about Neuschwanstein than the tour itself offered. The bike ride was fun and my sons took a dip in the Alpine Lake. This day trip was a highlight of our trip.
Excellent. A full day to see two very interesting castles. Good tour guide Nancy and driver. Neuschwanstein is a must see.
Highly suggest this tour! Such an amazing time and organized PERFECTLY. Would definitely recommend this perfect day trip from Munich to see the Neuschwanstein Castle and the area around it.
This was a fantastic tour. The tour guide was great, the bus exceeded our expectations. Large bus, yet only a few seats, maybe 20. We had ten on our tour. Linderhof was the gem of the tour, only complaint was we would have liked more time there, but time is limited since you see Neuschwanstein, Oberamergau and Linderhof. I highly recommend this tour. We did three Viator tours, and gave a 5 star review, a 4 star review and a 1 star review.
Love the whole experience !! Love Hohenschwangau, Neuschwanstein and Linderhof.
Great tour of 2 castles and a stop off for some shopping in Oberamergau. We had an excellent guide who gave us history as we were driving along about the area as well as King Ludwig. It was a long day but, but it did not seem like it. I liked that we had plenty of time at Neuschwanstein. We rode the carriage up which was nice. There are restaurants near the top, so recommend going up and then having a leisurely lunch on top prior to your scheduled tour.
The Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich was a tour not to be forgotten. Enjoyed the day and the tour so much that the memories will always remain with me. The weather was perfect and our tour guide, Arnoud was great. The only sad thing was the bridge was closed for renovation for the whole of 2015 which was unavoidable.
Still a tour to be recommended highly for all those who are visiting Munich or Germany.
This was a great tour! Loved seeing all the castles and getting to go to the little German town to see what a small town is like in Germany. It was a shame the bridge was closed because you couldn't take those lovely postcard photos of Neuschwanstein castle. The coach ride and everything else was great! Easy to find meeting spot. Great tour!
The small tour bus was the most luxurious bus we have ever been on. 25 large swivel chairs made the 12 hour trip very enjoyable and comfortable
The tour director and bus driver were very knowledgeable of the area of Germany we traveled through.
Neuschwanstein and Schwangau castles is in a beautiful area of the Alps The history behind the castles are very interesting. We had plenty of time to explore the area. The tour guide had tickets for our tour of the Neauschwanstein castle at an appointed time.
There was a nice stop at Oberammergau for lunch, snack or shopping. It is a cute little village in The Alps.
The final stop was at Linderhoff Palace. The palace tour is beautiful from the interior rooms to the exterior statues and fountains.
On the ride back we were treated to wine and beer to enjoy while we drove back to Munich.
If I have the chance to take a small group tour again I will The additional cost is definitely worth it.
I loved both castles made by Ludwig II! It was nice being able to choose between different tour options throughout the day. Neuschwanstein Castle is definitely not to miss but I would recommend visiting Hohenschwangau over the other activities offered.
We really enjoyed this tour. I have been a big fan of castles since I was a little girl and Neuschwanstein and Linderhof did not disappoint. I enjoyed the interiors of Linderhof the most and exploring the grounds of Neuschwanstein. Unfortunately the bridge at Neuschwanstein was closed for renovations so it was hard to get those breath-taking pictures of the castle but if you go off track a little there are some perfect viewing points. Marcus our tour guide was very good, he provided lots of information about each stop along the tour and made the bus journey very relaxing. We had a great day!
This is a wonderful trip to drive to the country side of Munich and visit the royal castles. Both castles are worth to visit and are astonishing. The Tour guide, Marcus, did not provide much information about the visited locations. His voice was most of the time low and the sound system at the bus was not very supportive as we were sitting in the last row. Onsite time was not enough at Linderhof Castle. We had around 45 minutes while it requires around 2 hours to see the whole place.
Marcus got us the tickets for both castles and that was very supportive. Upon arrival at Neuschwanstein Castle, I felt Marcus lost his temper and did not respond professionally to my question to confirm some details about departure time. I do not recommend Marcus for future tours.
Would've loved more time in the small town Oberamengau, but once we got to Neuschwanstein and took the time for lunch and walked up to the castle, it was clear why the majority of the time was spent there. The bus was comfortable, the gal telling us about the region was knowledgeable and easy to hear and understand. Excellent trip overall!
Loved this tour. The castles and views were awesome! Our tour guide was very good and knowlegeable so made this trip very worthwhile. It rained, but it didn't spoil our fun. My only concern was I had been to Neuschwanstein many years ago and this Neuschwanstein Castle tour seemed abbreviated.
Very nice area. The only thing I wish they would have given us a bit longer to explore around Neuschwanstein. Linderhof was nice to see and experience but with the walking at Neuschwanstein and the village, it would have been nice to have a bit more time there.
A must do. Be in shape because touring Neuschwanstein Castle is a physical challenge but with it. Guide was enthusiastic and friendly but English was a little weak.
