Little or no personal interaction with our tour guide , whom me and travel mates all found spoke slowly and boringly via the in-bus audio system. Castles were lovely but note that certain sections closed during winter such as pool and garden with flowers in bloom. Half the time spent on bus to and fro. Pity we couldn't do third castle. Linderhof tour conducted by local castle guide who was much wittier friendlier. Neuschwanstein was only with audio guide which was a pity. Overall, it felt like this tour provided logistics and transport rather than fully guided tour like the other tours we took.
Independent guide Kevin from USA was nice, warm and informative. He could answer most questions and took care of us pretty well, cracking jokes here and there and ensuring banter among our group, which contributed to lively atmosphere. Expect to be treated to over a litre of beer each and a smorgasbord of hams, cheeses, sausages
Guide and driver were both approachable and knowledgeable. A section of the Mirabell Gardens where Do Re Mi song was filmed, was closed when we visited on our own after the tour. Mondsee was nice and romantic, fun reliving childhood nostalgia scenes from movie. Listened to some songs from soundtrack and special 40th anniversary edition of DVD. Overall enjoyable and worth doing!
