Great day, good long bus ride but Patrick was a riot and we had a great time. Solid value on this Viator tour.
Great tour!!! Our tour guide, Sabina, did a great job providing us the history on our way to Schwangau and preparing us for the remainder of the tour. Once in Schwangau, we had time for lunch and then proceeded on the walk, thru town, up to the castle. Fortunately, the weather was absolutely perfect making the walk and sights much more enjoyable. The tour inside the castle was equally as stunning. Awesome to see all that history. Only downside was the look-over bridge was closed for renovation. Overall, highly recommended! Thank you again Sabina!!!
Excellent tour. The Castle itself was amazing. Th train ride to and from was also very interesting, just to see so much of the German countryside. After a month, I don't recall our guides name, but he was informative and entertaining. Very knowledgeable about the Castle and King Ludwig.
The only disappointment was beyond his control, the Lake Mary bridge was closed so had to settle for a bit lesser views.
I would highly recommend this tour. Just be aware, it's a bit of an uphill hike from where the horse cart drops you and the entrance. Also, lots of stairs inside. But well worth the effort.
Such a fantastic experience , great tour and Jeff was so helpful and fun and we all had a great time :
Austin, our guide, made King Ludwig come alive with his extensive knowledge of the man, this castle and the surrounding area. A must take tour!
It was simply wonderful and our guide Yulanda i hope i spell correctly was really helpful and nice.
My friend and I enjoy the sight and also finally get to see the castle. An eye opener for me and my friend.
Loved it! So interesting, very well organized. The tour guide had a lot of knowledge not only on the castle but on Munich as well. Everything was taken care of for us. I strongly recommend it.
Really loved this tour, great smooth journey out, very scenic and quick.
An amazing day and one we will remember for ever. Sabina was a gracious guide and full of knowledge!!
The tour was awesome! Petra was so informative and entertaining. She was the best! ! I and #39;d definitely recommend going on this tour. Sure, it and #39;s full of tourists, but honestly, it was so great and the scenery in the fall time is spectacular. A must see for sure! ! :)
I highly recommend booking this tour if you're interested in the wackier side of German history. :- Austin, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and made the whole experience--from the train ride to recommending where to get a quick bite to eat to getting us up the hill to making sure we all made it back to town--an absolute breeze!
This was a great tour! I enjoyed it very much.
The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.
I recommend it for information, sites and ease.
We were very pleased with this tour. The train ride was a lovely way to get to the castle. Our guide Petra was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable and made an effort to get to know each of the travelers in our group. We were a bit surprised to learn that she would not be coming in to the castle with us, but the tour provided by the castle staff was very informative though a bit brief. The castle itself, and the surrounding grounds, are of course beautiful beyond words! Overall we had an excellent experience!!
Our guide Austin was wonderfully well-informed, amusing, friendly, efficient and helpful. The castle is amazing and the surrounding landscape fun to explore. The company Radius, I think were extremely thoughtful and on a swelteringly hot day arranged a coach for us instead of the train which would have been an ordeal. All in all, a great experience.
I've seen may photos on calendars and in magazines, but seeing the castle personally and the surrounding vistas was awesome. The views from the bridge and from inside the castle are spectacular.
Our tour guide Dallas, from Austin Texas, was very knowledgeable about the history of the castle and made the visit interesting. He also knew a lot about the local breweries in Munich which I greatly appreciated.
Awesome experience! The tour guides were awesome, and had great information. Everything was on time and we were able to skip the lines, and the mad rush to the departing train back to Munich.
Very nice to have a guide usher you through an overwhelming amount of information, as well as set the tone, and make it interesting.
what an amazing, fairy tale place to visit. the surroundings were stunning.
due to the large size of the group we got a coach instead of the train which we were happy with. Roland our guide was funny, dramatic and very knowledgeable. great day!!!
My mum and I booked this trip through the Viator website and the trip itself was a local operator . Our tour guide was Anya and she was spectacular! We had a really good time on the tour and on the way to the castle, Anya told us the whole history of the castle and King Ludwig and her English was perfect. She was hilarious, knowledgeable and very approachable if you had any questions about the castle or even Germany. Instead of the train we were sent by bus, which was probably a better idea because there was a huge influx of people into Munich. We walked our way up to the castle which was a bit extreme at the start but becomes gradual after the first 10 minutes. For those who cannot walk up, there is a little shuttle that can take you up for 2 euros Anya organised that for a couple of people in our group. The castle is beautiful, the village below the castle is really cute. You can also see the Hohenschwangau Castle from the same area but would have to pay for a separate entry fee to get into that castle. We paid 12 euros per person to do the Neuschwanstein Castle but the interior castle tour was extremely short maybe 20 25 minutes or less and you were not allowed to take photos. The trip was worth it but taking the additional tour would be dependent on the traveler. The interior was lovely however but maybe 12 euros is heaps for it. When you walk down from the castle, you can follow the road right to the bottom and land up at a beautiful lake which is very picture worthy! Overall we had a really good day and Anya was fantastic! :
Excellent tour with Radius group and Sabine our tour guide was very knowledgeable and caring.
We had a good time on the tour. Instead of the train we were sent by bus, which was probably a better idea because there was a huge influx of people into Munich. The castle is beautiful, the village below the castle is really picturesque, and you can see what I seem to recall is Hohenschwangau Castle from the same area. I would, however, recommend skipping the interior castle tour. It was terribly short 15 minutes or less, an additional 12 euros per person, and pictures are not allowed. The trip was worth it without that additional tour.
Great Tour, and Great Tour Guide!
I'd do this trip again, and also recommend it to anyone. Thanks so much!
No surprises! Everything whet as promised. The guide met us on time and did a very good job. Excellent
English speaker with a lot of extra information about the area as we made our way to the castle.
Our guide Anyafrom Radius was very informative and thorough. The castle tour was ok but Anya was the highlight.
This was a fantastic tour with a great guide. The castle is high on the must see list. The surrounding is breathtaking. I cannot recommend this strongly enough.
