Well organized, knowledgeable guide. If you are not fit for the walk up to Neuschwanstein (though the way up is nice) you can take a ride in the horse coach, though you will have to wait for an hour so in this case skip lunch or just buy sandwiches. The day was foggy so we could not see the castle until we where very close, but it added a different atmosphere. The trip was worth the time and money.
Of all the tours during our trip, this was the highlight of our trip. We were not disappointed. Even though we thought it was a long tour, we really enjoyed the trip and scenery on the way and back from the castles. Everything was beautiful, the castles, the small town visited, the place were we had lunch, etc. Even the walk up the hill to the castle was a little challenging but it was worth it to find the castle at the end of the road. Our tour guide was great and she made it a fun experience.
Excellent tour of two grand castles of Germany and a short stint along the romantic road to get to them.
You can't come to Germany and not do this tour! The sites were beautiful and it was definitely worth going to the Linderhof Castle before Neuschwanstein. It's a long trek up, so take the bus up and walk back down. Your time is limited so you'll want to spend more time at the castle and then enjoy the view on the way back.
Beautiful. Both castles were very nice. Big difference from medieval castles. Amazing sights. Very fun walk. If you don't want to walk, you can take a bus or horse carriage, the latter for a small fee. Guide was crazy. She felt Ludwig wasn't crazy. After hearing everything...he definitely was
Wonderful trip. Be prepared to walk, uphill, to get to Newschwanstein. 1 hour in Oberommegau was not quite long enough. If you wanted to shop, there wasn't much time to tour the town. It was a great trip and the second time I've used Viator. The staff is always helpful and busses are comfortable. Well worth the money.
The bus was on time, the scenery from Munich to the castle was amazing. The guide describe every place we saw from Munich to the castle. She carefully summarized every aspect of the place we were seen, and similarly was carefully with the time we were expending in every place we went. At the end she summarized the important aspect of the trip and ask questions and explain in detail questions of the travelers. I highly recommend this excursion.
It was really nice tour. The time was not sufficient for the tour but really enjoyed all the way. The tour guide was very helpful and inforamtive. It was raining most of the time and couldn't see the mountains, hence my advice is please avoid during the rainy day.
These beautiful castles are really a must-see. The Linderhof is smaller but more beautiful inside and out while the Neuschwanstein is bigger and really lives up to its name as a fairy tale castle.. Just be prepared for some 1.5 km walk uphill and another walk to the Marienbrucke in order to have the best view of the castle.
There are plenty of buses doing this tour everyday so don't feel like your going to miss out as one drives off like we did. but we got on the next one and scored the front seats of the top level which meant an amazing view though the Bavarian countryside. Linderholf gardens and castle was beautiful and well worth the visit. We then stopped in a little town for some souvenir shopping, be careful the cuckoo clocks are very tempting (the proof is hanging on my wall) We then visited Neuschwanstein. The pub they take you for lunch as very quick meals to give you plenty of time to get up to the castle. If you do this tour you won't have time to catch the horse and cart up there or down as the lines are really long. you do have to walk or bus, but the walk isn't as bad as they say, plus there is an ice cream stop half way. the castle itself is stunning, just like out of a fairytale. This tour is great because you get to see everything but someone else does all the driving.
We enjoyed this trip very much. The castles are beautiful, inside and out. The scenery on the way is fantastic. The view from the castle is inspiring.
The best tour.. Walking up to the castle is steep.. Have to pay more for the bus, horse drawn carriage . Don't pay to go back down just one way is good. Great tour.
