Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich. 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.
Given the length of the journey to Füssen and the brevity of the castle tour itself, it was well worth the money to have our Viator guide handle all the transit logistics—and to give us the story of Ludwig and his castle before we got there. Absolutely a day well spent!
The destination is wonderful and a magical experience. Due to the newly melted snow the path was extremely slippery, so we decided to take the horse and wagon up the hill. Enjoyed the castle tour, even though it is hard to hear the guide in the larger rooms. Perhaps audio guides would work better for this venue.
Also, a lot of duplicate information about Ludwig from the tour guide and the castle guide.
This is a really great tour! My friend and I considered doing this on our own from Munich, but after comparing costs, it was almost exactly the same, so we opted to let so done do all the "legwork" for us. Our guide, Roland, was knowledgeable, funny, and very gracious. As others have said, he makes a point of chatting with everyone on the trip on a more personal level, making it much more enjoyable.
The weather was perfect for a visit to a "fairy tale" castle; a little cloudy, with rays of sun poking through intermittently. But the views! Breathtaking! Literally; when you're up on the bridge overlooking the castle, the wind is pretty active.
This was one of the highlights of our visit to Munich, and I HIGHLY recommend this tour!
This was a very well organized trip. Our tour guide, Roland, was a bit of an odd character but I found him very informative and entertaining. The train ride is beautiful and once we arrived, Roland took us to a small sausage cart for a cheap lunch before heading to the 2 castles. We only went inside Neuschwanstein, which like others have said, is a very short tour not put on by Viator, but by the castle itself. Still worth the visit in my opinion. Roland then took us up to Mary's Bridge (amazing!) and then we hiked…yes it was quite the hike…down into the gorge below where we walked back down into town. The views are incredible and I felt we got plenty of time in each place, however we did go in early November so it isn't as busy. I would highly recommend doing this tour. You could do it on your own but I don't think I would have learned as much nor would I have been able to find the great photo op spots on my own. Worth the money but wear good walking shoes as there is a TON of walking.
Very well organized tour. Beautiful sights of Bavaria, the Alps and the Castle.
Very good tour and guide. Well worth the walk up to the castle!! Stunning views . Train journey took us through some delightful scenery. Would definitely recommend.
The tour was great and Ian was very helpful and accommodating. I could do a lot of the walking involved, but I am overweight, much shorter (much smaller stride) and have arthritis in my knee. Thankfully, Ian was able to either point out alternative methods of transportation to the castle or allow me the freedom to start the walk back down to the village much earlier so I could take my time. I highly recommend taking this tour! Thanks, Ian!
