It has been a memorable experience to have chance to visit this castle, not to say the chance to ride on carriage downhill! Luckily we have booked the tour to save our time in queuing for the ticket and wandering around without guidance. Highly recommended for whoever visit Fussen for Neuschwanstein on their own but without any knowledge on how to visit the castle!

This tour was fantastic and our tour guide, Caroline, was wonderful! Caroline was very prompt, extremely knowledgeable and was extremely helpful! Our tour of the amazing Neuschwanstein Castle was scheduled perfectly and ended exactly on time. The horse and buggy ride was delightful. Everything was perfect!

Our half day tour of Neuschwanstein castle was managed very well although a little bit more information on what was happening at each stopping point would have been nice. I guess the tour operators do this every day and expect the punters to know exactly what is expected at every stop. A minor quibble on what was a sensational tour to celebrate our sons's 8th birthday all the way from Australia. The castle interior was way better than I expected for a castle that was so shortly lived in.

This was fascinating; it was interesting to see how the castle was constructed as well as the two finished floors. Our guide was a very competent, cheerful young woman---so sorry I did not write down her name---who was flexible, willing, and able to fill in the sparse tour information given by another inside-the-castle guide. The woman inside was competent, but did not go into much detail about the castle, including the fact that she neglected to mention that this castle was used by Hitler to store stolen art which was found by the Allies' Monuments Men, and was featured in the movie by the same title. We highly recommend this tour!

The tour was exactly as described on the website. Our tour guide picked us up promptly at the designated location. We then had very easy access to the castle tour. What was not described was how friendly and knowledgeable our tour guide was. We greatly enjoyed hearing additional history about the famed King Ludwig 11 of Bavaria and the castle. Our tour guide took us on a walk around the magnificent area before our tour began. The convenience of not having to wait in line to buy tickets, and to have had our tour guide get us around in what could have been a confusing environment, was worth the expense of the tour. The horse and buggy ride on the way down from the castle was an added plus.

It was wonderful being personally escorted to Neuschwanstein, skipping the line, and being shown all the sites around castle without the usual hustle-bustle of popular attractions like that. Our tour guide, Caroline, was great. Very friendly and very knowledgeable. We would absolutely recommend this tour to others.

If you are tight with time this is a very good option but it costs more than going by yourself

It was clear from the start that a small group tour was the way to go and this is exactly what Peter provided. Be prepared for massive crowds and be fit enough to manage steep inclines/declines before you reach the castle. once inside you will then ascend approximately 180 steps, so make sure you wear good shoes and are fit enough to manage as the castle tour guide doesn't wait. Over all this was well worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone.

The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable and good company. However, we did not get the horse-drawn carriage ride back to Fussen because of a bunch of tourists commandeered all the coaches. If you can't guarantee an inclusion, don't advertise it.

Also we did not get the leisurely stroll around Alpensee - as soon as we reached Hohenschwangau we were bundled into the car and returned to Fussen.

In summary, 6 out of 10.
