A very full day that I did enjoy.
Main negative was I didn't realise that entrance cost were not included and hence another 21 euro HOWEVER probably still reasonable for the full day. I would just rather pay up front as you wouldn't go on this day trip unless you intended to go inside the castles.
A very full bus - the usual suspects who didn't adhere to time frames and kept others waiting.
Linderhof castle in the morning - not enough time here - you arrived, waited in line for the toilet, quick walked up to the entrance to the castle, waited in line and then taken through the castle, out again and straight back to the bus. Lovely place and grounds looked beautiful and worth more time.
Onto Oberammagau - 45 minute visit and just the most wonderful town - next time will stay here.
Onto the Disney Castle - time for lunch in the village which is incredibly overpriced - takeaway hotdog or pizza is cheap and satisfying.
3 ways of getting to the Castle itself
walking - not for the faint hearted - you do need to be fit - I didn't attempt and so pleased I didn't as actually not sure I would have done it
horse and buggy - still a ten minute walk uphill when you arrive. reasonable price
- shuttle bus - 10 min walk downhill on arrival. Small charge
I did walk down and took me 30 minutes but worth it.
Weather was miserable - very foggy and didn't really lift however still a magical place
Lots and lots of walking once you arrive at Castle and you need to be able to walk up lots of stairs at one time - narrow spiral stairs and up numerous levels to start tour which was very interesting and worthwhile
Just a stunning place - appears easy to get to on your own and this would allow further time or a night here
Great guide - very knowledgable. Said enough but not too much. Information provided was not boring
Easy travel via train and bus to the site. Lots of time on your feet so wear comfy walking shoes.
Well worth the money paid
Good size group of people
Wonderful day trip from Dubrovnik to Montenegro. Picked up from near our accommodation - 8 of us altogether. Comfortable minivan and lovely driver/guide.
The day was as described - very hot but enjoyable and saw some lovely places. Guide in Kotor Old Town was fantastic and very knowledgable.
Only negative comment was that those of us in the back of the minivan couldn't hear the driver/guide and all the interesting information he was telling us. Also very hard to see from the back row particularly for the person in the middle. its a shame when the 2 people in the front sleep for most of the driving and don't give up their seats to those who want to see everything.

The actual journey was fine. The main problem was the booking - a long time spent on my cellphone for the man not to understand anything I said (I have a NZ accent). Finally had to get hotel staff to ring. Also they tell you what time they will pick you up not the other way around and consequently i was at JFK 4 hrs and 15mins prior to my flight - boring.

smooth and straightforward - counter easy to find and only waited 20mins
