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.
The best tour I have ever taken. The single seat design in the bus makes it a very comfortable day. More tours should be offered in this style of bus. The driver and tour guide were both 5 star
We had a lovely tour guide, who spoke excellent English, and the tour stopped at 3 places. The bus was very comfortable, and had snacks and drinks available for purchase.
Highly recommend the tour, but be prepared to hike up a big hill or pay to ride in a horse drawn buggy to the Neuschwanstein castle. So good walking shoes are recommended.
I didn't end up on the luxury tour, my husband ended up with availability that day, and there were no openings, so the company was very flexible and transferred my payment toward two of the economy tour tickets which was very generous of them considering I had booked a non-refundable tour. They even came and found me, and handed us two of the prepared snack boxes that were given out on the luxury tour and apologized for not having room to add my husband that day to the luxury tour. They were quite gracious, easy to work with for trying to make a last minute change, and we had a lovely time.
We loved this trip. It was so nice to be in the large bus with a small group and our guide was very good.
This was completely worth the price!

Our guide Ursula and driver Freda were amazing. The bus was very comfortable and up scale. Ursula filled us with stories and history, which enhanced our tour of the castles. It was even a rainy day, but that didn't spoil our adventure. Highly recommend this. Nice not having to deal with the crowds as Ursula took care of everything. She was awesome.
Very good tour guide with excellent English, very on top of things and extremelly helpful and kind. Provided all the historical information about the placecs and the castle we were visiting in an organized fashion while we were in route to the different locations. It was about 1 1/2 hours of driving to/from and the rest you spend it in the castles, in the small towns, etc.
Some people complain that you don't spend enough time in the Bavarian towns but that is a very personal thing. I found the time to be just enough and the towns to be gorgeous but small so an hour in the town and you have seen it all.
The bus was awesome same bus that was used by the Bayern Munich soccer team. You get a snack box some chocolates, peanuts, cookies and coffee as well as tow free drinks after that you would need to purchase it but it included beer, etc.. I got my two free drinks on the way back to Munich so we didn't find the issues that other people encountered with the drinks or being charged. Everything is clearly explained at the beginning of the trip and the guides within the castle are included and are great about 30 minutes for each Neuschwanstein and Linderhof.
Guide was very knowledgeable about Bavarian history and told a lot of fun stories. My only regret was that not sufficient amount of time for Linderhof. Should be 1 hour min. This is one of the worlds most beautiful gardens and no time to explore but around the build. Less time in the city, more time at Linderhof
Great tour, stunning castles and unbelievable country side. The bus is the way to travel total luxury no false advertising here! Both Neuschanstein and Linderhof castles are out of this world really nice, only pity is not being able to photograph the interior but must be seen to appreciate the quality of the workmanship of these buildings. Great tour guide and driver really had a enjoyable day.
This trip was wonderful. The luxury coach was certainly worth the difference in price. The bus was comfortable. The driver and tour guide couldn't have been more accommodating. I would highly recommend this and will use Viator in the future.
We had a great trip...Anna was simply great as our guide....took extra time with us to answer all of our questions on bus. The palace and castle tour were great and coordinated well with our bus guide. Would highly recommend the smaller tour like we took

Excellent tour, only about 18 people on our tour. Plenty of free time to do and see what you would like to see and do. The bus is truly a luxury bus, with stagged seating, so plenty of personal space.. Highly recommend this tour to see the castles
Great tour. Ursula, the guide was very informative and responsive to participants questions. If you are planning on visiting these castles, this tour is a must if you would like to see the interiors. Nothing better than than going to the front of the line! This tour was one of the highlights of our vacation.
This tour was awesome! We did it the second day we arrived in Europe. The castles were amazing, not to mention the view of the countryside and other towns on the way back to Munich. I would recommend this trip to every one. Just enough people in our group to make it enjoyable. The guide was great and very knowledgeable.
Loved this!! So glad we did the small group tour- the extra money was well worth it! From the moment we stepped on the bus and handed a 'snack box' with more than enough snacks for a day, as well as a fresh banana and a coffee- from the buses own coffee machine!!- it felt like a great decision. The guide was informative, and it was one of the best days on our European holiday. Would highly recommend :
Amazing day!! Well organized. Guide was attentive. It was wonderful to get snacks and drinks too
This tour was the best way to see the castles. We loved being in a small-group and the luxury coach was a great way to travel the German country-side. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made for a great day.
Excelllant trip and guide. If you miss this tour, you shouldn't have gone to Munich.
The tour was outstanding. The tour guide did a good job of explaining everything.

The tour was fantastic and the guide was great. She told us all about the history of the two castles and King Ludwig ll. When I booked the tour I thought ten hours was a long time on a bus but you needed every minute. The bus was very comfortable and with the small group you could ask a lot of questions. When you visit Neuschwanstein take the tram up to the castle. It's a long walk up and the tour of the castle has a lot of steps. On the bus the guide treated us like we were guests in her home. Offering coffee, tea, cold waters and even beer. I would take the tour again just to see the Bavarian alps its was beautiful. But what really made the trip unforgettable was the tour guide and I can't forget the bus driver. She made the trip so smooth and comfortable. Thanks so much.
I have left individual reviews of this trip on Tripadvisor and they reflect what was a superb day that was organised faultlessly by the team on the coach. The coach itself was more or less brand new and made the trip very comfortable. The 3 ladies running the show were excellent and the day couldn't have been better. We need to visit Linderhof again to see the Grotto etc but this trip gave us a great overall view of Bavaria.
