Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Best Skip-the-Line: Neuschwanstein Castle Tour from Fuessen Including Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Great sights, wonderful time. However the Horse-Drawn carriage part didn't happen because of long lines waiting for them and the schedule didn't permit it. That was disappointing.
It was a very enjoyable tour! Is definitely worth taking to avoid the long lines. Our guide, Florian, really took care of our group and was a lot of fun!
The lines to get tickets are massive and very limited. If you go during high season, you have to take this tour, or one like it. Forget trying to go on your own. The castle itself is impressive, but smaller inside than you will expect due to it never having been completed. I would strongly recommend taking this tour as part of a combination with other Castles, but if you only want to see neuschwanstein, this is a necessary option. If you go off season, just skip this tour. On season, it is a MUST. Or you just can't get in.
The tour was well organized and Astrid was a knowledgeable and pleasant guide. She took advantage of available services such as the shuttle up to the town at the base of the castle and the shuttle from there to the Castle. She shared quite a bit of interesting information on Ludwig and the castle and got us to our 10:30am tour right on time. We enjoyed the tour very much...so glad we took the time to visit Neuschwanstein. I'm not surprised it is one of Germany's biggest attractions.
Excellent tour - the guide was really knowledgeable and knew her stuff. Did a great job - definitely recommend and would use this company again.
Awesome! Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. She took us to lookouts that no one knew about and told us what to look for as highlights in the castle. The castle was better than expected!
Very nice tour guide and convenience of not standing in line for tickets. Beautiful castle and countryside!
This tour was wonderful and SO beautiful! The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The ride up the mountain was quick and painless (I am not a fan of winding mountain roads). At then end of the tour, our guides even helped us find train tickets to get to the Black Forest. Super helpful! Do it!
It is as advertised! Amazing. Just don't cheap out . Get there early and arrange for a carriage ride( preferably ahead of time)
We loved the tour of the castle and the surrounding area. Ruth, our tour guide, was a wonderful source of information and history, and was especially enjoyable. The carriage ride was nice, however it was for the ride down, not up, to the castle. There is a good amount of walking uphill, which was fine for us, however, some tourists were not aware of this.
Excellent tour! the guide was knowledgable, had good story about the castle and answered all my questions. The bridge was beaultiful and the tour inside the castle was also great. Loved the hourse carriage ride. Everything was all good!
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!

Beautiful trip. need to provide better directions on how to find train station where tour begins. We drove to town put almost missed the bus since it was difficult to find.
Perfect weather and our delightful and informative guide, Mariana, made this tour a highlight of our trip to Germany.
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.
