Wonderful! Beautiful! We had a really great time on the "Romantic Road" trip. All of the details, hotel rooms, tours, were absolutely wonderful! This was our first time using Viator and we will certainly book again. Price, value, experience, couldn't have been more perfect!
Well worth the price paid. Everything worked well - the transport and accommodation was first class. The hotels that were booked were top quality. I recommend the nightwatchman's tour in Rothenburg. You are given a choice of that or the day tour and I opted for the night one. The nightwatchman was great and the atmosphere was fantastic. This was a great way to see the Romantic Road - plenty of photo opportunity stops along the way.
We had a wonderful experience. The buses were nice, the drivers and staff at Touring (the local company) went out of their way to make sure our experience went smoothly. The hotels were charming and clean with excellent service. I will book through Viator again.
They were very accommodating to our change in schedule. We enjoyed the trip very much!
Very good trip! The Hotel was fantastic. I love every part of the tour.
This trip was wonderful, and it was perfect for us. We needed to get from Frankfurt to Munich and wanted to see some of Germany while doing so. The towns and villages we saw along the way were so quaint and charming. We had plenty of rest stops, and occasionally stopped to go into a church or museum. Our hotels the two nights we spent on the way were comfortable and very conveniently located for sightseeing, and we had plenty of time to do some sightseeing and shopping. We highly recommend this trip.
This was a fabulous trip. Germany is such a delightful tourist destination. We enjoyed the castle experiences and Rothenberg is a treasure. The guide commentary was clear and informative, but non-intrusive. The hotels were well appointed with friendly professionals. They offered good breakfasts. Bus/taxi pickups are well organized.
Outstanding, everything was ready and professionally done. Would recommend viator tour to our friends.
Amazing places. I travelled solo and did not experience any problems, instructions were very clear, comfortable buses and nice hotels. My favourite was the Muller Hotel in Hohenschwangau, hotel staff were very friendly.
The pace was just right and the hotels were great. The bus was comfortable and commentaries were made on a loud speaker as we traveled through the cities and towns. We stayed 24 hours in Rothenburg which was my favorite part. We avoided long lines at Neuschwanstein castle because Viator had made reservations but it took the guy a long time to find them as the tix were under a tour company name, not ours.

Our hotel accommodations was very nice. The Rothenburg hotel we stayed in was very quaint, and the people were very nice. The Hohenschwangau hotel was also very nice. The staff were very helpful in both places. Our transfers from the bus stop to the hotels was very well organized as well. I would definitely do this route again.
I would have rated this tour higher except for two things.
First, the agency where we collected the vouchers the day before told us to wait in the wrong area for the bus - It was only as 8am approached that I went back to the agency and spoke to another member of staff and was given directions to the correct bus stand. We then raced around the corner with our suit cases to the correct stop followed by another family. I told the driver and he did stop at the first stand where it picked up more passengers. We had all been given the wrong instructs in the agency.
Second, the hotel in Rothenburg was substandard. Our intinerary indicated that we would stay at Hotel Spitzweg or similar. That hotel looks lovely with quality furnishings etc - on Tripadviser it ranks as no 6 in Rothenburg. We had to stay at Goldene Rose - really a basic B and B, not a hotel. Apart from a pretty exterior, it lacked charm and was very basic and not very comfortable. A real disappointment and not in the same class as Hotel Spitzweg so I felt we had been mislead.
On the positives, the route is terrific - the stops are well chosen. Rothenburg is gorgeous with its city walls and mediaeval buildings and the night watchman walk is very entertaining and great fun. The second night is spent at Hotel Mueller - this was a lovely hotel. We had a comfortable room, great breakfast and the hotel staff were so well organised and efficient. They had tickets ready in the morning to visit Neuschwanstein Castle and we got them to buy us extra tickets to Hohenschwangu Castle as well.
This is a great tour but needs fine tuning - perhaps options can be given to select from a rage of accommodation. I would recommend it if they can fix up the accommodation in Rothenburg.
Great tour , absolutely beautiful. It should not be taken if you plan on more than a drive through of the cities on the way to Rothenberg , but the stay in Rothenberg was perfect and inn was fine and yet simple. The pick up was on time and no time at any of the towns to the Castle. The Hotel Muller was super and the guides or drivers on the way were great.
The trip was great although time and information was a little short in a few instances.
The drivers need to take a more active role in the trip, perhaps providing commentary as the trip progresses.
Loved them. Rothenburg was lovely, we had only 24hrs. wanted more. Neuschwansten was on our bucket lists.This package was unique, we weren't with a group, taking buses by ourselves, but everything---bus to taxi to hotel--- was cordinated smoothly. loved the flexibility. Hotels were nice. only negative comment is---I had to pick up our itenerary and vouchers in person at travel office in Frankfurt, I went there 3 times because it was not ready until the pm of the before departure. Fortunately, our hotel was very close to the office. The people at the office were not nice either. I really wish we could have the detailed information earlier.
