The Castles are spectacular and are definitely worth the trip. The only reason I gave this tour 4 stars and not 5 is that timing was really bad: we didn't have enough time in Linderhof - only 1 hour, which didn't allow us to see much besides palace itself, while there are lots of other interesting things there. In Neuschwanstein the timing was all wrong: we had too much time before the tour in the castle, and only 30 minutes to get back to our bus. The guide told us it would take only 20 min to go down from the castle, but later I read in the guide book it should take at least 40 min! And indeed my 80-year old parents and I had to run down the hill to get in time to the bus, as the guide warned us she would leave without waiting for anyone. We happened to be on time, but we were out of breath, and the people who came after us were also red in face and sweating profusely. That definitely spoiled the pleasure of seeing Neuschwanstein castle.
