What You Can Expect
Had a wonderful time on the trip, it left on time and returned on time, we were well looked after throughout the day and the driver was excellent, he (Jack) was full of stories and information about the region we were traveling through and was very informative and funny. He was explained correctly time lines for the day and made sure the bus was warm enough and we had enough food and drink for the trip, He was also very helpful at recommending other sights to see after the trip. The castle was fantastic to see and the town of Rothenburg was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursion and would recommend it to anyone.
I really enjoyed my day trip to Neuschwanstein. It is an extremely long day with a lot of time on the road. If you are not put off by spending 4-5 hours on the road each way, I highly recommend this trip. The castle is one of the most stunning things in Europe that I have seen and the region of Bavaria it is located in is gorgeous. Additionally our guide stopped for pictures in Rothenburg on the way back which is an experience not to be missed. The guide Wolfgang was professional, knowledgable, and even went out of his way to try to converse with me in German to help improve my language skills even though he spoke flawless English.
Got to see a lot of Germany on this tour. Our driver was very knowledgable and had amazing stamina. Enjoyed extra stop at Rothenburg. Would have appreciated better dinner stop. Glad we took this tour.
I had a lot of fun. It is a long trip for a short tour of the castle but if, like me, you have always wanted to see it I don't think you will be disappointed. We just had a driver guide so he didn't talk much on the road but he was still nice. Great to be able to do it at short notice in low season.
The tour was great and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
The view is magnificent from a distance. Just like the fairy tale castle comes alive. The wealthier was excellent and we can scrolled down the hill track after visiting the castle.
The drive from Frankfurt to Neuschwanstein took over 4 hours one way. We were privileged to be chauffeured in a limousine with great leg room. The car condition was excellent that we felt that it was cruising quietly although it speeded at 180km/hr on the Germany autobahn.
The castle was great. It's a 3-4 hour trip each way by car....so if you don't want to spend 8 hours driving, take the train to Munich and go from there instead.
This is an extremely long day trip from Frankfurt. It is more driving than actual sightseeing so be prepared to spend a lot of time in the car. The castle is lovely and the views are amazing so it is worth doing only if you have plenty of time to spare for it.
I believe this was only supposed to be to the castle, but we also did a brief stop in Rothenburg. The next day I was glad we had done this because the trip I booked for the next day to Rothenburg was cancelled on me.
Our "tour" guide didn't not know a lot. The actual tour of the castle was a let down. Stay overnight it is too far to make a day trip. Eat there the one included is not worth it.
