What You Can Expect
Your first stop is Linderhof Palace, a small palace built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Though inspired by France’s Versailles Palace, Linderhof’s interior is actually rather private and humble, as you’ll see on your 1-hour guided tour, but head to the surrounding gardens and you’ll discover why they’re considered among the most beautiful in the world, combining elements of Baroque, Italian Renaissance and English styles.
Leaving Linderhof behind, head next to Oberammergau, where you’ll have about 30 minutes of free time to walk around. Wander the lanes of this quaint village and see beautiful examples of the traditional art of woodcarving.
Continue driving along famous Romantic Road to the foot of majestic Neuschwanstein Castle. Before hiking up the hill for your guided tour of the castle, you can either have lunch (own expense) or set out for Mary's Bridge (Marienbrücke), the best spot for postcard views of the castle.
The most famous of three royal palaces built for King Louis II of Bavaria, Neuschwanstein sits on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau. Take a guided tour of the 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace to learn about its peculiar past: it was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive, crazed king, but it was opened to the public after his death in 1886.
Today Neuschwanstein is an architectural icon; in fact, it inspired Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and closely resembles Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland!
After your tour of the castle, relax on the drive back to Munich.
wonderful guide- and beautiful stops planned. there was plenty of time for most things. The only issue was the fact that we had to pick up people at another location and this delayed us by 30 minutes - which we lost at another stop.

Great!! I liked the small group and the bus was very comfortable and clean! Great trip!!
This was a fantastic experience. Luxury bus with a lot of room and coffee/water service. They even gave us a beer on the return trip. The guide, Gerte, was great. Very knowledgeable, friendly and quite a history buff. This was such a great way to see some of the major tourist spots in Bavaria. Definitely do this. It's much more comfortable and enjoyable as opposed to the standard bus full of tourists type of tours.
This small-group tour was the best! The driver and guide were excellent and the coach was luxurious!

This was a great tour even though we got stuck with rain. Our guide was really sweet, I just don't remember her name. The Neuschwanstein castle was beautiful! Even the drive there was really nice. The Linderhof Castle was small but really interesting to see. I would definitely take the Luxury coach option since seats are more comfortable and it's a smaller group. Loved this tour.
This is the way to travel,,nice bus ! Nice guide. Plenty of time to see what you want. Only complaint was not able to see the swan cave at Linderhof...wasn't on tour.
Nice trip even though it's snowing.
Well worth the price. The bus was so comfortable and our tour guide (Margrite I believe) was wonderful. The bus driver was also very friendly. The castles were amazing, just wished we had enough time to see the grotto.
Luxury coach was great. As soon as we got on the bus we were given a snack box, fruit, and offered a coffee. The tour guide provided commentary throughout the tour and was very clear with the plans for the day.
Ursula was an excellent guide - very knowledgable and personable. The coach was very comfortable and we enjoyed traveling in a small group instead of with a herd of people. I highly recommend this tour.
