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! Informative and organized and Hotels were perfect. My only suggestion would to allot more time on stops. Had a great time!
Arrangement is good and the tour guide is very nice, I enjoyed it very much.
The Bavarian alps, castles and accommodation at Hohenschwangau excellent. Bus trip to Rothenburg not so good, the bus went back to Munich (a big waste from our point of view) and the bus driver contributed very little, he explained almost nothing and let people get off at Rothenburg station instead of the main town. Our day in Rothenburg was excellent, accommodation very good and bus driver to Frankfurt helpful and entertaining.
Overall the trip was fine, except the hotel in Rothenburg, there was no elevator and no air conditioning. Older customers could not stay at the Golden Rose Boutique hotel.
Cool! Neuschwanstein castle is simply a must-see. The hotels Hotels Muller and Spitzweg were fantastic. The medieval town of Rothenburg is incredible. Don't miss the tour by the Nachtwichter! He's a riot and you learn a lot from him too. You'll learn why the word 'salary' comes from 'salt'.
Except for the tour to neuschwanstein, the rest of the tour was excellent. The procedure for the tour drop off at the first hotel was confusing and not well communicated. The driver was rude and sarcastic and the guide did not explain what we were supposed to do clearly. Expensive for whole tour
The bus was great, the activities too and also the Hotel in Hohenschwangau. My only comment is about the Hotel in Rothenburg which very awful and uncomfortable, I was expecting a Hotel as good as the one in Hohenswangau.
Everyone has to see the Romantic Road! It is just simply beautiful. If I were to do it again I would do it myself. Don't get me wrong this tour was very well organised and I didn't have any problems, but on the second day you don't have many bus stops so miss so many great villages.
Previous reviews commented on the confusion at the bus stop on the first morning, I thought it was relatively straight forward. There were 3 buses all going to the same place and the difference was the language spoken on board. The bus drivers are really friendly so just ask and they will point you to the correct bus. The first day is also linked with the Royal Castles one day trip so when we stopped for lunch, those staying overnight, checked into hotels and then continued with the group for the rest of the afternoon. I stayed at Hotel Muller and loved it - nice food and good character. The second day was a long day travelling, we started at 8am and arrived in Rothenberg approx. 4pm. 2hrs of this day were spent heading to Munich which is a pain, though you don't miss any of the romantic road. The third day we were picked up at 4pm and arrived in Frankfurt at 8pm. All of the transfers from and to the bus stops were very prompt and we had no hassles whatsoever.
Overall, we enjoyed this independent tour but would recommend others to hire a car and spend a couple of extra days exploring more villages.
