As a airline professional, I have a chance to travel around the world and found out that the tour leader of this local tour is the best I have ever met.
It was a great tour, on time and well run and informative. We had a blast! Thankyou.
We had a beautiful day to tour the castles. There was plenty of time to walk around the Neuschwanstein Castle area. We chose to walk up to the castle on the roadway which was great excercise - others chose to ride up on a bus or, horse drawn wagon which they enjoyed too. Tour guide inside the castle was very knowledgeable.
Great tour! Sophie was an excellent tour guide - very knowledgeable about the family and the history of the castles. The bus ride was relaxing and pleasant. I would highly recommend this tour.
Both castles were beautiful in their own way. Neuschwanstein is amazing but the walk up to the castle and the bridge aren't easy but so well worth the effort!!! Views are amazing!!! Our guide Elizabeth was very nice and made the trip more interesting.
While we didn't actually get to tour Linderhof due to the G7 conference that was occurring in Germany at the time, this tour was nevertheless excellent. Linderhof was replaced with Hohenschwangau castle which was very impressive. Neuschwanstein itself is spectacular. Entertaining guide also.
This was a great tour! I loved the stops in the towns along the way- we would have never been able to visit those if it had not been for this tour!
Great guide and bus driver. Unbelievable scenery and just a great day
Both castles were absolutely amazing! Our tour guide was very nice and helpful. I also recommend walking up to Neuschwanstein castle and the bridge instead of taking the horse-drawn carriage or the bus. The walk was not hard. Slope was gentle, and it took me 18 minutes only to the castle. I enjoyed the walk as much as the castle itself.
Very cool castles and grounds and a very good tour guide. They booked lunch at a hotel's restaurant by Neuschwanstein but you didn't have to eat there. We did and thought the lunch was very good. If you want to walk to Neuschwanstein, it's a bit of an uphill hike, so it wouldn't be for people with mobility issues, but we enjoyed it, especially after spending so much time on the bus.
Brilliant day trip to the castles , informative and witty tour guide Maria.
Comfortable double decker air condition coach.
Excellent driver , cheap cold beer and water on board.
Couldn't have imagined trip to be any better ... Though would have liked longer at Linderhof to look round gardens and also would have preferred to take lunch at Obergmau passion play village!
Great tour, very informative, our girls enjoyed it, it was a great way to spend the day away from the city. Our driver Mike and guide Sopie were awesome!
This is a highly recommended tour. The tour company is very efficient. Nice and comfortable vehicles and knowledgeable tour guides.
We really enjoyed this! My husband says it's one of his best memories over the past 6 weeks of travel. We were gonna do a train visit but this included more stops, and was great to see more of the countryside. Liked seeing Ommergau and walking around the shops. I liked that the guide told us alot about what we were driving through on the way.
The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and she stayed with us throughout the day aside from when we were touring the castles. She warned us ahead of time about the long walk to Neuschwanstein and informed us about the other means of travel available. If the line is short I recommend the bus so you can ride up to the top, above the castle and two minutes from the bridge. Otherwise you have to walk up to the castle, then walk uphill further to the bridge worth it for the view. The only complaint I had was that we were unable to see Linderhof, but this is because of the G7 summit and not because of the tour. Instead we viewed Hohenschwangau which was still very nice.
Overall, great tour, though be warned the price you are paying here only covers the trip with the tour guide. It does not cover entry to the castles. We were asked to pay 22 euro for entry to both.
Well worth the trip. Bring your walking shoes, as there is some hiking to the castles from the bus parking and even from the shuttle bus drop off. Danielle and the driver were superb. Understand that, when Danielle gives a departure time, BE THERE! I almost missed the bus at Linderhof. There are strict time constraints, due to the distances, also resulting in not enough time at any of the sites. Still, well worth it. Highly recommended.
