This was an awesome must-do tour! The double-decker bus had a toilet on it, and hot drinks, beer and bottled water were available for sale on the bus as well. Our guide (Monica) was really friendly, pleasant and knowledgeable. The pace was just right and everything was so well-organized! And the castles were really beautiful and impressive! Must-go when you're in Munich!
The tour guide was knowledgable and organized and knew how to guide us on the bus without being cheesy or overbearing. He gave us the freedom to explore each area we were in but made sure to tell us a specific departure time so we could accomplish everything we needed in the day. It was the perfect day tour, getting to see both castles and the small town of Oberammergau. It did help that we had perfect, snowy weather the day of the tour! Bavaria is just beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed the sights.
Great experience! The time frame was managed very well and we were able to take our time and enjoy the entire trip.
Had a great day at both castles! Tour was well organized timely and informative!!
This was a great tour. We went on January 9th, and were lucky enough to have a fine day. The castles are fabulous, even in winter when all the statues etc in the grounds are covered with wooden boxes to protect them. Our guide was very informative, and the bus was comfortable and warm. Our only gripe was the time we spent in Oberammegau. It was too short, and by the time we'd bought a coffee and had a quick walk around it was time to go. We got the horse and cart up to the castle. There was quite a queue, and we had to wait about 30 minutes, so if you take that option make sure you allow plenty of time before your time slot for the castle tour.
One of the best tours I have ever had! Amazing places worth visiting!
The tour was excellent. The tour guide provided detailed info about the area and recommended shopping stores and restaurants. We totally enjoyed the location and of course the tour.
The castles and their grounds and surroundings are beautiful, especially set against a brilliant blue sky contrasting with the glistening white underfoot.
Buses do not run up to Neuschwanstein castle during the winter season but it is possible to take a horse and cart shuttle to quite near the castle. There were 5 running on December 20th 2013. Each holds about 11 people and the driver. The queue time was at least 30 minutes for us so this in mind in terms of not missing your timed castle tour.
Oberammergau is very picturesque and was a nice stop.
The guide, Gerta, was efficient, helpful and extremely warm. I heard her giving all kinds of travel and local advice to various passengers. Steffan, the driver, was also very helpful.
It seems like a very long day but the longest unbroken journey we had was the 1.5 hours leg back to Munich.
The entire group of people who booked this trip the day we went filled 3 double decker coaches. Each coach, however, had its own guide and did the tour independently of the others. The coach was very clean, cosy and comfortable and had a WC along with cola, water and beer for sale on board.
Gerda was a great guide. Bus was comfortable and the timing of each stop was great.
Our bus driver and guide were very professional and knowledgeable. The tour departed Munich on time returning at 1830. A dusting of snow the day before made a beautiful backdrop of the areas we visited, the roads were clear. The walk uphill to Neuschwanstein Castle from town is 20 minutes. Linderhof Castle is stunning. Both inside tours began on time with professional guides. Booking early online gave us a terrific price on two tickets. I will look to Viator in the future!
Amazing tour guide, very well read and answered all our questions. Fairy tale experience.
The castles are amazing. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The stop at Oberammergau was a great plus, it's a beautiful town. Worth every cent.
The tour guide is very knowledgeable and explanations on every attractions are very clear and concise.
We were a little disappointed with the visit to Neuschwanstein castle as the route to Mary's bridge was closed due to ice and we were forced to compete for pictures with other tourists from the only decent viewpoint of the castle. We will definitely go back to visit but probably in summer to avoid the route being closed again.
