We enjoyed every minute of this tour. The guide was wonderful making sure everybody was taken care of and had a great time and informed us about the history of the castles and the area. There was plenty of time to walk around and enjoy the castles and the little town. Great tour for a great price!!!
The guide was very knowledgeable on the topics. The bus was very comfortable and the bus driver was very skilled. We really enjoyed this tour.
Beautiful trip and a must do for anyone with a spare day in Munich. This beats the olympic area or any of the car manufactories BMW or Mercedes. It is a great way to see the countryside of Bavaria.
Same as eagles nest,bit dissapointed that could not see more inside,but still great day.
The Bavarian country side was such a beauty to behold. Winding roads, lush green fields, tall trees, massive mountains everything added to the charm of this place. Our first stop was palace Linderhof, which had stunning landscapes. Second stop was the charming old town of Oberammergau with its painted houses and famous wood works. Via the Romantic road, we reached our final destination The Neuschwanstein Castle, such a secluded and stunning piece of work. Our tour guide was so very informative not just about the tour but Munich in general. The coach was very comfortable with push-back seats, toilet, refreshments, TV, luggage stowing and an upper deck for better views. Very much recommended and worth the money.
Beautiful place and the experience was wonderful. A lot of walking and hilly, though.
This tour exceeded our expectations and considered one of our favorite tours ever taken. Not only did we spend the day visiting the castles, the drive through the Bavarian countryside was breathtaking. We highly recommend this tour.
Had a great time....LOVED IT! The tour guide was very informative and the driver got us there and back to Munich safely. Wish we could have had 20 more minutes in Linderhof, so we could explore the gardens.
Other than that, everything was fantastic! Thanks.
Excellent day out and well organised and details are as expected. Al and Christine were excellent, driver and tour guide. Very interesting stories told on the way. Definitely recommend.
Had a great tour to the castles of Ludwig II including Lindenhof and Neuschwanstein. Our tour guide, Geuder, was excellent - full of great information and witty banter which was most appreciated. The tour is well organised, and it pays to keep on time! Tour stops are enjoyable and provide ample time to soak up the atmosphere as well enjoy the castle tours themselves.
PLEASE NOTE: The cost of the entrance tickets is NOT included in the cost you pay on Viator. We needed to pay the ticket price of 23 euros per adult when the bus was already enroute. The tour was wonderful despite our surprise. It was a 2 hour bus ride from Munich but the view was worth it. When we got to Linderhof castle, the tour was quick and not much time to explore the grounds but we did get a chance to see the gardens and take pictures. There are timed entrances to Neuschwanstein so we had lunch where the guide recommended. We also made a much too quick stop in Oberamergau for shopping. I do wish more time was allowed for that because there were many beautiful wood items made by the people of the Black Forest but we needed to make spot decisions on some expensive items and I regret we didn't get more time to decide.
Awesome little day trip. Linderhof and Neuschwanstein are awesome places to visit. Interesting history and beautiful landscape around the castle grounds. Our guide was funny and knowledgeable. No regrets!
We enjoyed the trip and the tour. Our guide Christine was knowledgeable and friendly and very helpful. It was pouring rain on our walk up the hill to the castle but it was still very enjoyable.
My family really liked this tour. Our guide was informative and funny. Neuschwanstein is absolutely worth the trip out of Munich to see. When you get to Neuschwanstein, I would suggest you take the bus uphill and not try to walk up. The castle is so grand! And as my son calls it tiny baby Linderhof Castle is also beautiful. Overall, a day well spent.
It was amazing! Loved everything about this tour! I would recommend this tour highly and do it again in a heartbeat.
The tour was nice, and the guide was excellent! Highly recommended!
Fue increiblemente visitar un Palacio, un Castillo y un pequeno pueblo de cuentos, nuestro guia fue la mejor parte del viaje
The tours of the royal castles of Neuschwanstein was very good and our tour guide Joseph was excellent. He told us about the history of the castle, where his favorite ice cream shop was and he even sang to us. The only complaint that I have is about the weather which none of us have control over. During our stay in Munich the temperature was 95-98 degrees F or about 36-39 degrees C and our hotel had no AC. I felt like the first day whenever we would get into a city, it was always the hottest and then the day we were leaving it would cool down. A helpful hint, when you are booking a hotel in Munich if it has four stars or more, then it will have AC.

Great trip with an interesting and humorous guide. The walk to Neuschwanstein was quite long and difficult, even if one opted to take the bus especially in the sweltering heat there were also lots and lots of steps and most of the tour was spent scaling enclosed spiral staircases. The tours themselves both castles were rather regimented no more than 30 minutes in each place on a guided tour in poor English. One also couldn't take photo's, which is completely ridiculous, particularly as there was so little time to consider the decor and ambiance. This however, was the fault of the venues, not the tour operator. Visitor numbers were huge and I guess this is one way of managing them, however I am still grumpy about the quality of information and lack of photos...
