Berlin Welcome Card

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This is a convenient way to get around Berlin and save money on certain attractions. If you plan to use the bus or train systems several times during your stay, this is worth it especially so you don't have to keep buying tickets. If you only take a bus or train a few times it would be cheaper though to just buy individual tickets. We about broke even or possible save a little with how much we used it including saving on a few of the attractions we went to like the Berlin dome and aqua dome and the city circle sightseeing tour. The pass is kind of expensive so make sure you will actually use it.

Romantic Road, Rothenburg and Harburg Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Our tour guide was not very nice. Since we ended up taking this tour on a German holiday we heard from other people stores may be closed in Rothenburg so we asked our tour guide. We were not the only ones to ask either. He got upset and said you don't go to Rothenburg to shop, you can buy that junk anywhere. You go for the history. He said this several times. Rothenburg is a beautiful historic town with many neat shops. Definitely worth seeing and yes the stores were open. The Harburg fortress is awesome. It is around 1000 years old. Beware on tours that charge extra for the entrance to the castles and even overcharge from the rate you'd pay if you walked up and bought them yourself when you got there. They keep from 1-3 euro on top of what you've already paid for the tour.

Royal Castle of Herrenchiemsee and Fraueninsel Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Castle not as spectacular, however it had some beautiful porcelain chandeliers, which I've never been a big porcelain fan but these were spectacular. The island of Fraueninsel makes for a nice relaxing day. You can just sit on the shore and gaze at the beautiful scenery. Of course walking around the island you see lots of beautiful stuff as well. I just enjoy looking at the architecture in Germany and looking in some of the shops.

Royal Castle of Linderhof and Oberammergau Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Oberammergau has many neat wood carving shops. Very popular Bavarian trade, very expensive too but they do some pretty fantastic work. The Linderhof castle is the smallest but still neat to see and is on very pretty grounds. You can walk around the grotto and have a nice relaxing day. Beware of tours that charge extra for the entrance to the castles and even overcharge from the rate you'd pay if you walked up and bought them yourself when you got there. They keep from 1-3 euro on top of what you've already paid for the tour.

My Review
This tour was awesome. The area is very beautiful, and the tour included the entrance fees to the castles and a nice lunch. Beware of some other tours that charge extra for the entrance fees to castles, and tack on a few euros over what the actual ticket price is to keep for themselves even though you already paid a high fee for the tour.
