Munich Airport Private Departure Transfer

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Pricey, however, worth every dime. Driver was prompt, professional, courteous and English speaking. The car was spotless and the stress of having to figure out transportation to the airport from downtown Munich at 530am was relieved by securing this service. We used it both arriving and leaving Munich, and I would recommend it to anyone. Winner!

Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a fabulous tour. The bus was clean and comfortable. The tour guide was friendly and did her best to manage a bus full of tourists from different countries with language barriers (ear phones were given to those who did not understand English). The countryside as we traveled was exquisite. Our first stop was Linderhoff. Time was limited, and there is a bit of a walk to the palace. If you have physical issues, this may be an issue. I was traveling with my son in a wheelchair, which proved difficult uphill, and over snow (we traveled in March). The palace tour was brief and we barely had time to get back down to the bus. No time for souvenir shopping, however we were forewarned of this. Next stop Oberammergau. Gorgeous town with storied history and Fairy Tale painted homes. Again, only a brief stop off for souvenir shopping. Harried, but fun. Then we arrived finally at our final destination, Neuschwanstein castle. Idyllic. Breathtaking. Again, be forewarned, the castle sits high atop a mountain. It is a 30 minute hike, or you can secure a ride on a horse drawn buggy, which brings you almost to the top, but not all the way. Your entrance ticket (BTW...entrance to the castles is not included in tour price, it is separate) has a time for your tour. Be sure to be there in time. Again, only enough time after the tour to make your way down the mountain and back to the bus. We had about 4 hours at our last stop. So, you can eat lunch, shop, and make your way up the mountain. We had to wait in a long line for the horse carriage, so we did not have time for lunch. All the stops were gorgeous, and the information and history given by the tour leader was super, the only problem was the time constraints. I don't know how you would do this on your own however, so I recommend this tour. We met great fun people, and all in all it was a fun, beautiful day.

Bavarian Beer and Food Evening Tour in Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fun. Fun. Fun. Fun. Informative. Who knew beer played such a pivotal role in the history of Bavaria and Europe as a whole? Our tour guide Iain was a veritable encyclopedia of knowledge, and he was such a likable, fun guy to hang out with as well. This tour was a winner, winner, winner! We traveled by foot, S-bahn and subway. The Oktoberfest museum was so interesting, and the beer samples were great. Don't miss this tour. If you are in Munich, it is a must do!!

Salzburg Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide Iain was marvelous. His knowledge and wit and personality helped make the day a complete success, even though we traveled in March and the weather was very cold and windy. The train ride was comfortable and the scenery along the way was stunning. We were given a very informative and interesting history of Salzburg as we strolled through the town and the plaza's. We were then given 3 hours to explore on our own. We were most excited about the "Sound of Music" sights. The entire day was exceptional. A complete success. Don't miss this tour!!

Nuremberg Day Trip from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fascinating city with a mind boggling history. Our tour guide was an American living in Munich and was a veritable walking encyclopedia of knowledge about the city and its dramatic history. The train ride was pleasant and comfortable. We had a wonderful day and would recommend this tour to anyone staying in Bavaria as a desirable day trip.

Munich City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Munich, Germany

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

This was our least favorite tour of our trip. The tour guides were informative, but the tour was a bit confusing and harried it seemed. The buses did return back as scheduled for any hop offs you chose, so that is good. Good history was imparted by the tour guides, but we were left wanting nonetheless. Don't know how to describe what was missing. It just didn't exactly work. Kind of boring.

Munich Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very comforting to arrive in a foreign land and have an English speaking guide waiting for us outside of baggage claim holding a placard with our names clearly printed so we would easily spot our driver. Kind of pricey, but well worth it to us. Beautiful BMW, and lots of helpful tips from the driver on our way to our hotel.
