We undertook this tour with some
trepidation but our guide Jeff from Radius Tours really made our visit even more memorable than we anticipated-his knowledge was exceptional and the way in which he conducted the tour was supurb-he directed us to sections when there was the least amount of people so we felt as if our visit was really personalised. Jeff had a delightful way of presenting what was a very dark period in history-we gave him 10/10. The meeting place was easy to find and the staff were very efficient-all in all it was a good experience!!
Coming at the end of a 10 week trip, this was a long day but was good-we could have had a little more time at Llinderhof but the experience was good. Oberamergau was a great experience and we felt fortunate to have had an hour to explore the delightful little town. After a very pleasant lunch at Mulers Hotel (own expense) we walked to the Neuschwanstein Castle for our appointed tour which was definitely well organised as far as entry was concerned. Our tour was a large one so it was a little difficult to hear all the narration also we felt peeved that some members of the group lagged behind and continually snapped photos (which would dearly have loved to have done but rules are rules!!!) Maybe they need a follow up person to prevent this from happening. All in all the castle tour was great and the Bus Trip was very good with our guide providing background history along the way-she also organised the purchase and distribution of the tickets very efficiently - all in all - it was a tiring but great day out filled with beatiful scenery.
The Tour meeting point was easy to locate and the guides were prompt and efficient having us in the Tower promptly. Of course the crowds were present but even in the rain our guide was able to point out highlights of the city as well as present facts and figures relating to the construction of the tower. We remained after the tour to take in the lights of the city- all in all the experience was great for our first night in the city.
