This tour for us was magic. The hotel in Rothenburg was very comfortable, and the "old town" simply amazing. So much wonderful history, not only here, but along the whole route. Weikersheim was very special. As we proceeded down the Romantic Road we saw the increasing richness of the countryside. Wonderful rich, rich farmlands surrounding beautiful centuries old towns. It was a great way to go, from north to south. To finish in Hohenschwangau, and stay the night at the magnificent Hotel Muller was a terrific surprise, with a view of the "Fairy Tale Castle" from our hotel room window. Many thanks to all those involved, who made this tour so wonderful. The tour leaders, the drivers and the hotel employees who looked after us so well. It went like clockwork.
We really enjoyed this tour. Amazing and beautiful places, good steady coach drivers, adequate bathroom stops (and a toilet on the coach if necessary), all transfers efficient and smooth, lovely hotels booked for us with good rooms and excellent breakfasts, and yet we were still largely independent. Yes, we could have done much of the same tour for a somewhat cheaper price if we had booked each bit ourselves, as we have done for the majority of our travels, but for once it was good to have it all organised for us and it would have been difficult getting back to Munich in the evening after a wonderful day in Hohenschwangau. All 3 meals that we ate at Hotel Muller were excellent and they catered extremely well for my gluten-free diet, as did Hotel Spitz for my Rothenburg breakfast. Viator had informed the kitchens of both hotels and they were ready and aware of my requirements.
Absoutely excellent tour, visiting some amazing hotels and villages and meeting new people. Highly recommended.

This was a great trip. We were able to see the true Germany away from town, it was beautiful. The hotels were well chosen and they went our of there way to make us feel welcome, friendly and helpful with directions. The packages that were prepared for us at each hotel were well put together and presented to us along with person instructions at each hotel. Loved this!
Fantastic tour! Rothenburg was lovely. Make sure to do the Night Watchman tour! Southern Bavaria spectacular, just like a fairy tale. Great way to get to Munich!!
This part of our trip to Germany was the highlight for me. Seeing medieval cities was absolutely awesome. The castles at Hoenschwangau were amazing. I would definitely recommend this trip.
Great trip with lots of flexibility for own time. Bus arrangements and staff were very friendly. Hotels were also very comfortable. Took the horse carriage up to neuschwanstein which i initially thought was part of the trip but wasnt. Thanks for the great trip which I totally enjoyed!
If you have the time don't miss out on this tour. Beautifully scenery, great hotels for your overnight stays. The small towns overnight stays and Neuschwanstein Castle are a dream.
The 3d/2n Romantic Road tour was excellent.
All hotels were above average and bus trips went smoothly.
Even though our itinerary and vouchers were not at waiting for us upon our arrival at our hotel the night before our trip--the tour company somehow got all our papers to us while we were on our tour.
The Bavarian Alps are beautiful and the towns are interesting. Also, it is a worthwhile way to get from Frankfurt to Munich.
Wonderful tour! Good drivers, nice accommodations, and great locations. We were in Rothenburg during their festival, not sure that was the best timing, locals didn't like it, but we thought it was fine. Neuschwanstein Castle was amazing!
I highly recommend this! Beautiful town, castles and breath-taking scenery. I would think that this tour will be perfect if there is an additional night at Hotel Muller (between Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle) in summer. This will give us more time to enjoy Alpsee lake or to discover the hiking trails around gorge at Marien Brücke (Mary's Bridge).
This was a wonderful trip and I'd do it again in a heartbeat! This trip allowed us to see the small German town of Rothenburg, a gem of a town we normally would have missed. Our favorite day on our 25 day Europe trip was our day at the castles as well. We did both castles in one day and took a boat ride on the most beautiful lake either of us had ever seen, with the castles and the foothills of the Alps nestled around us. The accommodations are excellent and the bus tour was welcoming and informative. My only suggestion to the tour is to skip some of the smaller towns where it's only a 5-minute picture stop. Those stops, though interesting, made the bus ride longer than it needed to be.
This trip was a lovely surprise. As Individual travellers you are given vouchers to join buses along the Romantic Road and vouchers for WONDERFUL hotels and tours etc,. This was well organised but plenty of free time to relax at the same time,
This was worth our trip to Germany! It was perfect!! The hotels, the romantic road, the stops. Where to begin... On the big coach we had us and 1 other couple on this journey. We left Frankfurt and made stops along the way for photos. We arrived in our 1st overnight in Rothenburg at the parking lot where we were met by our taxi driver. He dropped off the 1st couple at "Hotel Spitzweg" then on to our hotel a boutique Hotel Goldene Rose. Wow, what a beautiful hotel, friendly host and excellent breakfast. The most beautiful town and friendly people. Got a gorgeous "black forest" cuckoo clock and steins at "Kathe Wohlfahrt Christmas store. (they shipped perfectly) DO NOT miss the Night Watchman tour. He was so interesting and entertaining. Tickets are provided. Great views of city on this tour. Next day we traveled to Hotel Muller at Hohenschwangau. Excellent breakfast, best in Europe! Loved the castle on the 3rd day, tickets provided. Walkded down to Fussen enjoyed every minute of this trip. You are on your own, the driving is taken care of for you and it was a relaxing and perfect way to see the romantic road and castle. Excellent value!! While on the road the drivers had great info to share. Would love to go back. I would not miss the chance to do this one again. Another fantastic trip with Viator, Thank You!! 5 Stars!!!
