We had a fabulous guide who gave us background information as we walked up to the castle! Greatly appreciated havering all the transportation prearranged.
Excellent trip, wonderful venue and scenery. Roland was a really good tour guide. I will be back again.
This company made this full day easy and efficient. My tour guide Austin had a great sense of humor to make the history of the castle and monarchy informative and fun. The train ride out though long was great to see the countryside and chat with other tour members -- great way to find out about other people's travels and culture. Be sure to pick up a sandwich/lunch to take with you and bring coins for paying the bathroom monitor a pain in Europe!. Austin arranged for us to take a bus to the top to save our energy it is quite steep on the way up, lovely stroll on the way down. The castle is definitely a fairytale adventure, the tour was excellent and free time was the right amount. Wear comfy shoes for sure!
Our guide has been very attentive and enthusiastic abou her job.
She seems to keep studying the histories related to whatever she may guide about.
You can travel to the area and get to the castle on your own, but taking this tour made logistics SO much easier! I really appreciated the advance purchase ticket so I was guaranteed a spot in the castle that day. I can see why this is the most popular tourist sight in all of Germany. I'm just glad I was with someone who helped me navigate it so well. Our guide Austin was very charismatic and funny. Don't fuss with going on your own. Book the tour for the interesting historic information and the ease of travel!
The tour was very well organised and our guide, Austin,was excellent. I had a physical disability on the day and he was most accomodating. Best tour guide I have ever had.
Despite a problem with the train we had an excellent day. Anya was extremely helpful and informative. The other people on the tour seemed to enjoy themselves as well and we had glorious weather. Such an amazing castle. Thank you for a great day.
Awesome trip..not far from Munich. Beautiful countryside and castle. Tour guide is very accommodating and his instructions are clear. There are multiple methods to reach the top of mountain where the castle sits. Great views and scenery!

AUSTIN OUR TOUR GUIDE WAS AWESOME, highly recommened.
this tour Is a must. a great experience. what a fantastic view form the castle. loved it. our tour guide was also very friendly and we enjoyed a chilled beer with him after our castle tour.
The bus direct to the castle was very convenient. The guides were very friendly and helpful. Petra and Austin were both very knowledgeable about Ludwig II and the castle itself, and made the tour very enjoyable. I would recommend this trip.
Will is a great tour guide and I strongly recommend to take this tour!
Austin was an excellent guide! Would highly recommend this to others.
I would not recommend seeing the castle inside however the hike up and the view are to die for! Our guide was fantastic and new a ton! I like asking and learning from others who are passionate about what they know!!
Could not fault the trip arranged by Viator. Meeting place was clear, Tour Guides were very amiable, and knowledgable The Castle itself runs to a very strict timetable, and the guides made sure we were kept informed of times and logistics all the time. The travel system in Munich is very good and the train was fast and comfortable. My only gripe would be the rudeness of the tour guide in the castle, even denying was said on the pre-recorded tapes which were our only information inside the castle. Of course, this is nothing to do with Viator, and if it wasn't for our guide giving us a very informative story on the way there, we wouldn't really have known anything. If I could change anything about this trip I would take the Viator Tour Guide with me inside the castle and ditch the castles own guides.
We understood your tour to price included admission to castle. Jeff was an awesome tour guide! Disappointed in the approach to castle. Should ask if people have asthma or breathing problems. Too many children, could not hear the tour guide in the castle.
This tour was absolutely awesome and definitely worth the money! Our tour guide, Austin, was amazing and really knew his stuff. Being a King Ludwig II and music history buff myself, I (as well as my husband and our friends) was very impressed with his knowledge of everything King Ludwig II.
Austin was a great tour guide! He was entertaining and funny, but extremely knowledgable and kept the tourists entertained and involved the whole time. He took us around, and gave us great advice on what to do and see around the town. You could tell he really cared about us because he came up to each of us after the presentation and made sure we had plans that night, where we were going, suggestions on where to eat, and answered any other questions we may have had. Great tour! Thank you!
