Something we could have done on our own. The tour guide was not enthusiastic and seemed to be just doing the job because he had no choice. Some facts were interesting, like Maria Teresa being crowned Empress. The cannon ball in the side of the church from an Napoleon visit was cool.
Lazlo was awesome! His knowledge was vast and his determination was endless. Our tour was during the recent Danube flood which closed access to some roads. But Lazlo and the driver got us there. The views were breathtaking and lunch was delish. The restaurant had views of the ruins of a castle and a Monastery. I wish we had time for the zip line. That would have just made things even more spectacular.
Loved it! Three tips for those who should decide to take this tour: 1) get to the bus early and sit on the left side, the view of the snow capped Alps is beauuuuuuutiful! If at all possible, sit on the top level of the bus. 2) Upon arrival, Don't spend too much time downhill of the castle before the timed tour of castle's interior. The bridge behind the castle is a must see! 3) Be prepared to walk from the bus drop off to the castle. It's a good climb up hill (more like the side of the mountain). Horse carriages are available, but there is a wait which can be long.
