Skirt through Bavaria’s magical places and spaces on a 3-day tour from Munich. In the morning, set off with your private guide into the southern countryside, where you’ll enjoy gorgeous natural vistas and visit picturesque villages like Hohenschwangau and Rothenburg ob der Tauber, called the ‘Jewel of the Middle Ages’. Over the next days, you’ll see regional highlights including the Würzburg Residence, Linderhof Castle and Neuschwanstein Castle—a model fairytale palace! When not on the move, enjoy independently discovering Bavaria through self-guided walks and indulging in traditional fare cuisine at local eateries.

We really enjoyed this tour. It worked exactly as promised--our papers were at our first hotel when we arrived and all of our cabs showed up to transport us to the next location. We loved all the towns we stayed in. This is a very beautiful part of the world and we are glad we got to see it.
It was awesome!! I would recommend it to everyone. The beginning was confusing because none seemed to know what bus we were suppose to go on. Ran into traffic so we were rush at the Palace. That was a bummer. We still enjoyed the trip. The nightwatch man tour was really cool in Rothenburg. Very Funny and entertaining. AMG.
Fantastic trip. Great scenery, loved the castles. Best part was the medieval towns. Loved the stay in the Mueler hotel.
Great trip! It was mainly a tour on your own with set transportation schedule and hotel arrangements made. Night watchman tour was great!
Had an amazing time!! I was treated almost like royalty. Everyone was very nice. I was by myself so I was taken care of by the hotel staff, the tour guide, and the bus drivers. The hotels were wonderful! Hotel Mueller was the best!! The tours were wonderful. Everything was handled very easily. I would definitely do again.
Great Tour! Rothenburg stay was the highlight.
Great tour! A few comments though: The time allotted for Linderhof Castle is too short. Although Oberamagau is a great place, I would have wanted to spend a bit more time at Linderhof Castle and a bit less time at Oberamagau.
Definitely sleep over at Neuschwanstein area and Rothenburg. Only way imo to really enjoy the area or else it would just be too stressful. The bus ride through romantic road was scenic but not much to really explore or do. Was a bit rushed as well.
