I absolutely loved it and it was much better than I thought. I was absolutely amazed by mountains and the views. I would recommend it to anyone and would love to go there again.

This wasn't our first pick of tours, but the others were unavailable because of the time of year we went but we are so glad. It was beautiful and I learnt more about the area and the history than I thought i would. We were lucky because although there was snow on the ground it was sunny and warm. Loved it and would highly recommend it.

The drive into the Bavarian Mountains was absolutely beautiful. Travelling from Australia we just wanted to get into that snow that we were expecting to be everywhere in Europe, but due to the warmest European winter for some time we had to travel up to the mountains to see it and feel it, but it was well worth waiting for. The lakes were so peaceful. Our tour guide Michael could have been a little more talkative.

Great tour! Our tour guide Walter was superb! A rather fast tour, but hghly recommended. Exceptional mountain and country side beauty. Not sure how this tour would be if Walter is not the guide. He made all the difference!
