It seemed expensive at first, but it worth every penny! The trip was really comfortable, informative, very convenient, and fun. Trip to the Neuschwanstein castle can be stressful if you go during the busy season, but this trip definitely saves all the headache!
Our guide, Franz was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Clean and very comfortable bus.
This was a dream of a tour. I highly recommend the small group. You pay a little more but you will not be cramped up with 50 people. We only had 7 total participants. I am sure it is a little more during high season but my experience was great with 7 people. The bus that you are transported in is really 1 of a kind! Big seats that swivel and recline. Monica was our tour guide and she was EXCELLENT! For us tourists from the states, Monica's english was perfect. She speaks with such a nice cadence. Very knowledgeable and helpful. I really enjoyed our experience on this excursion and honestly if I find myself traveling to munich again I will probably want to take another tour similar to this one!
Excellent tour! very knowledgeable guide Ana willing to answer any questions, confortable bus. The offer snacks and drinks. The tour is very well timed to enjoy all sites of the tour. A very good experience worth doing while in the Munich area.
The small group tour was an EXCELLENT investment. Bus ride was exceptional _ only one seat per row, coffee, tea and snacks. Tour guide and driver provided historical background to our experience. We highly recommend this tour. On the day of our tour it rained all day, however, the tour experience was so good that we did not mind it at all.
This tour was amazing. Our guide was very informative. We loved the smaller group and it was worth the money. We were given food and drinks on the bus which was very nice since this was a long tour. We will use Viator again for future travels!
This day trip was amazing. We had a bus that was very comfortable and the single seats swivelled and reclined so you could certainly relax and enjoy the stunning view. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. It is basically a twelve hour day and worth every penny. There is a lot of walking and much of it is on an incline, so wear comfortable shoes! I highly recommend this tour!
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. From start to finish. Our tour guide was wonderful, she was funny,pleasant and very entertaining and knowledgeable!
This was amazing and even better than we expected! From the comfortable and spacious coach to our fantastic guide and driver I'm sorry, I can't remember the ladies' names, every bit was well thought out. The information and stories along the ride, the time for shops and photos, the tours and, of course, the drinks and snacks, all made up for an entirely unforgettable experience. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a bit extra when picking a day trip to the castles.
A wonderful tour and the driver and guide were fantastic in every way. Highly recommended tour.
This is the tour to take! Margaret our guide and Frieda our driver were wonderful. The bus is super comfy and it was nice to have a smaller group to travel with. We had an amazing time! :
The luxury coach is really comfortable and it was really a small-group tour 8 of us. By virtue of the small group which made us agile, the tour guide made a quick stop at Oberammergau which was a BIG bonus. It would be better still if our tour guide could lead a quick walking tour around Oberammergau as we were kind of lost and unsure of the directions. Overall was a pleasant experience especially experiencing winter wonderland during this trip.
Small-Group is the only way to go. Fabulous tour bus and guide. Scenery is picture book quality.

Fantastic tour!!! Ursula was a wonderful guide, filling us in on the history of King Ludwig, as well as the Bavarian country side. Worth every penny. Am so glad I paid the bit extra for the smaller tour and perks that came with it. Can't wait to visit this area of Germany again with my husband. Spectacular, despite the rain and fog. The weather added mystery and enhanced the amazing colors of Indian Summer.
The premium small group tour was wonderful. We were comfortably seated in a bus with one captains chair on each side for great views and leg room. We received snacks and drinks for the ride. Our guide Ursula ? was so knowledgable, pleasant wand made the trip go quickly. The castle was fogged in until we got up close but was still beautiful. We truly enjoyed the beauty of the area with fall leaves to frame the castle. We took the shuttle up the hill to walk down from the bridge closed unfortunately so we did not need to climb up to the castle. A short trip to picturesque Oberommergau to enjoy the scenery painted buildings. A tour through Linderhof castle was also enjoyable and only wished for more time. Couldn't have been a better day.
The small tour bus was the most luxurious bus we have ever been on. 25 large swivel chairs made the 12 hour trip very enjoyable and comfortable
The tour director and bus driver were very knowledgeable of the area of Germany we traveled through.
Neuschwanstein and Schwangau castles is in a beautiful area of the Alps The history behind the castles are very interesting. We had plenty of time to explore the area. The tour guide had tickets for our tour of the Neauschwanstein castle at an appointed time.
There was a nice stop at Oberammergau for lunch, snack or shopping. It is a cute little village in The Alps.
The final stop was at Linderhoff Palace. The palace tour is beautiful from the interior rooms to the exterior statues and fountains.
On the ride back we were treated to wine and beer to enjoy while we drove back to Munich.
If I have the chance to take a small group tour again I will The additional cost is definitely worth it.
very nice bus. enough time at the different sites. learned a lot of the history.
This was a fantastic tour. The tour guide was great, the bus exceeded our expectations. Large bus, yet only a few seats, maybe 20. We had ten on our tour. Linderhof was the gem of the tour, only complaint was we would have liked more time there, but time is limited since you see Neuschwanstein, Oberamergau and Linderhof. I highly recommend this tour. We did three Viator tours, and gave a 5 star review, a 4 star review and a 1 star review.
Our driver and guide were exceptional. I did know a lot of the history, lore and events surrounding King Ludwig II but for those who didn't, she made this a history lesson full of interesting stories and anecdotes. They explained the tour in great detail, making sure we knew what to expect and how to get the most of it. Very pleased with this one and highly recommend it.
The bus was luxurious and Franzi was a great and knowledgeable and funny guide. She kept the bus ride entertaining and pointed us to the best locations for pics and souvenirs.
Exceptional guide and amazing castles. Very long day! Be prepared for a long trip.
