Castle and tour guide were amazing!! The tour guide gave us a history lesson on the way over. He also took us to a good view to photograph the castle. It was a magical time!!!!
The trip was well organized. Our guide Austin was fun and insightful. Wish we had more time in the castle.
Fantastic tour guide, follow the flag worked a treat. Castle is a great place to visit and not too far from Munich. Lovely to go when there's snow around.
We ran this tour on Wednesday December 16, 2015. The weather was cloudy, but we enjoyed the trip. The castle is magic and wonderful. Our guide Keith W. was American with a very good knowledge of the history of Germany and of Europe in general. The other participants were very sympathetic. We met people from Las Vegas, Australia, Russia and UK. Just one word : trip to be highly recommended !
Great day trip with a friendly and informative guide, Suzanne. Enjoyed the tour of the castle and the walk from the lake up the hill. Helped by sunny weather and blue sky. A memorable day.
We were very happy with the tour and the guide. The castle did not disappoint but the lack of snow did, which is out of your control. Thank you for a top day.
Susanna was good at sharing interesting information and navigating the trains and buses. No problems, went well.
Although the walking bridge viewpoint was under construction, our guide went the extra mile to take us to a private viewing spot that gave us a great view of the castle and some wonderful pictures! It was much easier to navigate the options to get to and from the castle with the tour guide's advice, and her commentary on the history of the castle's builder gave some great context to the visit. If you are thinking of visiting Neuschwanstein I definitely recommend this tour!
Not for the unfit or feint heartedlots of climbing and a long way back to the village. But what a spectacular setting. Our tour guide was knowledgable and very friends with lots of information about the castle and Munich generally. Highly recommended.
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.
