This was a great tour. We went on January 9th, and were lucky enough to have a fine day. The castles are fabulous, even in winter when all the statues etc in the grounds are covered with wooden boxes to protect them. Our guide was very informative, and the bus was comfortable and warm. Our only gripe was the time we spent in Oberammegau. It was too short, and by the time we'd bought a coffee and had a quick walk around it was time to go. We got the horse and cart up to the castle. There was quite a queue, and we had to wait about 30 minutes, so if you take that option make sure you allow plenty of time before your time slot for the castle tour.
We had booked this tour, but were put on the longer Le Grand tour. It was wonderful. Our driver/guide Jessica was terrific. She was very informative, friendly and approachable. We only had two days in Avignon and could never had seen so much in one day on our own. As it was New Years Eve the day was shorter than in summer, and Jessica made sure we saw all there was to see before it got dark. It has certainly made us want to come back to visit the area in summer. All in all, a wonderful tour snd one we would recommend to everyone, especially if you are time poor like we were. The wine tasting, bridges, roman ruins and delightful villages were wonderful.
We eent to the 9pm show on December 29th and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We went to the 9pm show and expected to queue, but were taken straight to our table. We did not have the meal, but a bottle of champagne was delivered to our table very quickly. This was included in the price. The other 2 couples at our table has the meal and were very friendly. The staff were all efficient, and the show was fantastic. It was rverything we expected, and the two hours went very quickly. Ebery act was excellent, from all the dancers to the gymnasts, girl doing amazing things with hoops and the very funny ventriloquist. We would recommend this show to anyone who wants a good night out.
