Lydia was an incredible tour guide! She made sure we saw all the highlights, including the best restaurants In the city. She was very thoughtful in making sure she understood what we were interested in and geared her tour specific to our interests. I HIGHLY recommend doing this tour as it provides a lay of the land and gives you an opportunity to see the areas of interest for the remaining days of your vacation. She even sent us additional information the next day for additional highlights of interests for our remaining days of vacation. We were very happy with our tour and would recommend doing this! It was very helpful and made our trip that more enjoyable!

We were so lucky to get Sandra Chue as our tour guide on our private tour in Nuremberg. We had a lovely walk around the town with her as she gave us a detailed history of Nuremberg & pointed out the important buildings & churches. She is extremely knowledgeable & well informed on German history plus being a very interesting person herself. I highly recommend taking a private tour & asking for Sandra.
Think I saw everything in the town. Sandra was very nice and helpful. In the beginning of the 3 hour tour I felt we had all the time in the world. Toward the end it felt rushed but that was due to my start time choice and not knowing things would close. However, to avoid this rush perhaps certain sites should be seen earlier than later. Sandra knows her script but at times can sound somewhat monotone, I suggest for Sandra to feel more of what she is saying, tell me more with excitement!
Regardless, if you want to see where sites are and have someone to tell you the whats and when’s, then Sandra can do it. True rating 3.7, better than a 3, not exactly a 4.
Instead of taking a traditional tour of Nuremberg, pair up with a local guide for a private walking tour. It’s a new travel concept that’s more like exploring the city with a friend; before your private walking tour of Nuremberg, you’ll connect with the Lokafyer guide to chat about your interests. That means an experience that’s tailored to you, not a one-size-fits-all tour.

After doing much reasearch on guided day tours from Munich, I chose Mike's Bike Tour to Neuschwanstein Castle on Monday September
9, 2019 because different options of activities involved and so glad I did. I highly recommend. This is a very well organized tour with the insider tips to help make the most of your day. Our tour guides were Ryan and Patrick and our driver Nayim. Ryan narrated a lot of history on the bus ride to castle and also took care of optional choices. I elected to do the bike ride, gorge hike, and tour of inside of castle. It was a scenic bike ride to a lake where you can swim and along the way there are several stops for photos of castle. If you decide to go swimming, just be prepared. You can change after bike ride and before lunch and there are several restroom breaks scheduled throughout the day. After bike ride we had lunch and the food was delicious. Don't worry about what to order because you've already taken care of it on the bus after your guide has given you description of meal options, he also arranged to have water at the table for us, which is not common practice, also if you can refill your water bottle at faucet. As an added bonus for me, since I was there in September, when we ordered our drinks the special Oktoberfest beer was available and it was so good and refreshing. Just what you need to get you through the gorge hike.
Nayim, our driver has bus stocked with beverages and of course beer all at 2euro each. Before our hike and on our way back to Munich this was a welcome bonus. I have probably misspelled our driver's name and I apologize but I want to make sure he knows what a great job he does driving the tour. Now to the hike.
This is a breathtakingly beautiful and magical hike.
I am 58 and not in the best of shape and although I struggled a bit with all the steps, it was so worth it. Patrick was at the back of the tour and made sure everyone was safe and accounted for. This was especially important to me since I was traveling alone.
I can't stress enough the care that was taken with us as a group and also individually. Sometimes I wondered off or got distracted taking photos and then realizing I was alone would look around and always there was Patrick keeping watch and giving me a nod or thumbs up.
Our tour was only about half full so maybe on completely full tour it wouldn't be quite as individualized. Inside castle tour was crowded.
I've been traveling Europe for 3 weeks now and have taken a quite a few tours through Italy and London. This tour was by far the best one yet. Hunter made for an awesome day out, he's very knowledgable about the history of the region and the castle and also hilarious when talking about it. He really made the trip worth it.
The bike tour is a nice cruise through the valley and around a lake. Very peaceful. Bring swim shorts, even though it was cold, the lake was still fairly warm. The hike isn't too difficult either, and its very beautiful. The castle is interesting as well, but the castle tour is run by the state, not Mike's company, and they only give you 30 minutes inside so heads up on that.
Tailor your trip to Neuschwanstein Castle by adding on either a Hohenschwangau Castle tour, a Lake Alpsee bike ride, or a hike to the village of Schwangau. Perfect for family and friends who are traveling together but don’t have the same interests, this day trip from Munich offers an experience that everyone can enjoy. After your choice of morning excursion, you’ll regroup for a tour of Neuschwanstein, learning about eccentric King Ludwig II as you explore.

Skip the hour-long lines and make the most of your time in Bavaria. Enjoy round-trip transportation and luxury comforts on this private tour from Munich.
I enjoyed going on the tour, but found this guide Andreas difficult to understand what he was saying. Also, no mention that you needed to buy an U-Bahn ticket in advance for visiting one of the Breweries
