Our guide was a first-class tour guide. He was extremely knowledgable about the history of the castle and indeed was very knowledgable about German history. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and found our guide both willing and capable of giving as much information as you demanded. He even recommended books for further reading. We didn't take the inside tour of the castle, having read other reviews of it. The people in our group that did said they thought we had done the right thing and gone off for a walk. Doing that we saw the lake which we wouldn't have been able to do had we taken the inside tour. The views are beautiful. A word of warning, even though it may not be cold in Munich, you are heading into the mountains, there was a small amount of snow and slush, not a problem for us as we went suitably clothed but some in our group were not at all dressed for the cold conditions and ended up with wet feet. We went in April. Go on the trip - it is well worth it! Take your camera. Highly recommended.
