Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Munich Super Saver: 2-Day Trip from Munich Including Neuschwanstein Castle and Herrenchiemsee Palace. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
For the Neuschwanstein tour it was very cold and rainy, so unfortunately the bus that takes you up the hill to the castle was not running and we had to walk the entire way. Although it was unfortunate to have to walk uphill in the rain the castle was definitely worth it. This company was fantastic!!
Very well organised using train for most of the journey. With Neuschwanstein you also take a bus to get you to the little township below the castle site. With Herrenchiemsee you also get to go on a steam train and ferry as part of the experience of getting to the palace. Both are worth seeing and unique in their own way because of their setting and styles. If you get a chance do Linderhof as well. That is the smallest of the palaces, but it is complete, almost 'homely' compared to the others and it is where King Ludwig spent most of his time.
The views from Neuschwanstein are amazing! Herrenchiemsee has a lovely village and abbey nearby to visit. Our guides were wonderful, friendly and accommodating. Very pleasant experience. Great way to see some of countryside as well.
Great trip! The castle and surrounding area were beautiful! Our guide, Austin, was very friendly and entertaining. He gave some great background on the castle and King Ludwig II, and made sure we got exactly where we needed to go. He was organized and made sure we always had seats even when the trains got crowded. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves history, and even to the ones that simply like beautiful scenery.
Excellent, but fast-paced. Sabine is a great tour guide and her little dog makes it easy to find her in a crowd. If you have to pick only one of these two castles to tour then Herrenchiemsee is by far the prettiest inside and includes a day on the lake as you tour to the little islands that house the convent and the monastery as well. Beautiful statues everywhere at Herrenchiemsee and the interior is amazing.
Had a wonderful time. Out tour guides we excellent and very informative
Beautiful scenery with the Alps in the background . Neuschwanstein Castle tour was only 30 minutes. Not sure worth 4 hours on the train and we were minus one family whom held us up twice.
This review is only for the Neuschwanstein Castle as I didn't enjoy it much and switched my next trip to Dachau, which happily they were willing to do for me. If you're into castles, it is breathtakingly beautiful. However, it is a horribly long day-longer than it needed to be. It could be done in 6 hours easily but the entire day of this tour is about 10.
The tour guides were great, no problem there. However, for a 10hr day, I'd recommend packing some sort of food with you. The only options there are really, really repulsive/disgusting with very limited options. And, if you're a healthy eater, you may as well fast for the day because it will gross you out even more. And beware of all the tourists there. If you hate crowds, simply don't go. They were horrendous the month I went (August). Skip it if you aren't truly into castles.
