The extra money for this small group tour was well worth it. Spacious seats and a very comfortable ride through scenic Bavaria. I never felt as if I was part of a herd. The guide (wish I remembered her name) was very knowledgeable and informative. The description of the tour was spot on, and met or exceeded my expectations. Could you spend more time in Neuschwanstein, Linderhof and Oberammagau? Sure, but I was able to see 3 beautiful places in one day in perfect weather. I was extremely satisfied and the tour was one of the highlights of my recent vacation in Europe.
What a great Tour and a spectacular Value. If you get a chance to do this tour, don't hesitate. Neuschwanstein, Linderhof, Hohenschwangau and the village of Oberammergau in a 10.5 hour tour is jam packed. Tickets for the tours inside both Neuschwanstein and Linderhof were taken care of by the fabulous guide for an additional 21 euro. Everything was made very convenient.Plenty of time was spent at Neuschawnstein/Hohenschwangau. Oberammergau village was a quick shopping stop with beautiful Fairy Tale painted homes and businesses. I found prices for souvenirs cheaper here than Munich. Overall a fairy tale trip.
This tour was amazing!!! best part of visiting Munich. Maximus was a great guide and gave us such good insight into munich. The little town we stopped at on our way between Linderhof and Neuschwanstein was so awesome! I also highly recommend to any one to purchase most of your souvenirs here because you won't find a better price!!
We walked up the mountain to the castle, it was a tiring walk but well worth it once we made it to the top! Don't forget to walk to the bridge so that you can see the perfect view!
Don't miss this tour!!
Our guide was very knowledgeable not only on the story of King Ludwig, but also into the history of the towns passed/visited. Her enthusiasm for King Ludwig really brought his story and that of his castles to life! The castles themselves were beautiful, although a bit more time to explore the grounds of Linderhof would have been good. The short visit into Oberammergau was also a highlight- a very cute little town which again we would've loved to have spent more time in. Understandably though it was a long day with a lot to cover so with that in mind, the times allocated were reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend
Tour guide Christine was awesome and very friendly. The tour bus driver did an excellent job as well. Lots of cool and unique history given while traveling to all stops. Loved the Linderhof castle tour. My wife and I both did not enjoy the Neuschwanstein castle tour however. All in all a great.
Overall a fantastic and informative tour. Monica, our guide, was amazing. Full of great info and fun-facts, she kept us all on-track and entertained. Neuschwanstein and Linderhof were gorgeous. The sole improvement we would suggest is considering omitting the stop in Oberammergau. While it was a lovely spot, we had only 30 minutes to explore/shop which was not nearly enough and the whole detour felt very rushed. Very small issue for an otherwise wonderful and fun-filled day!!!
This was a lovely tour. A visit to Neuschwanstein had been on our bucket list for several years. Our time at both Linderhof and Neuschwanstein was enjoyable with the bonus of great weather.
excellent trip with a very knowledgeable guide. Added stop at Obergammerau was very much appreciated. Castles were spectacular, with Linderhof reminding me of Versailles, and Neuschwanstein being the perfect model for Disneyworld.
The tour has been well organized, where our guide has prepared all the tickets and given us clear instructions on how to redeem them at each attraction. The guide is very knowledgeable, sharing background information and history with us as we made our way to each attraction.
Between Linderhof and Neuschwanstein, we stopped over at a small village with various souvenir and handcraft shops. For those who are interested, this would be the place to pick up a traditional cuckoo clock. For the uninitiated, you may find the stopover to be a little too long. Lunchtime was slightly later than we had expected, hence I would advise those who are taking the tour to have a good breakfast that day.
The crowd at Neuschwanstein was significantly more overwhelming. The tour bus dropped us off at the foot of the hill and we were to make our own way to/from Neuschwanstein at the top of the hill there were a few transportation options. This was where things got a little confusing and we had difficult making our way back down. In the end, we were late and might have almost missed the tour bus. If the transportation to/from Neuschwanstein is organized for the group, that may be helpful.
All in all, we had a wonderful time on this tour and I would recommend it to others.
I'm not sure how to rate this tour. When I arrived at the bus depo operated by greyline, they advised me to the bus I need to go on my overnight tour. While on the bus Nancy our tour guide had no idea I was on a overnight tour not a good start, I'm very nervous at this stage - praying I was not on the wrong bus when I question her what do you mean you don't know she kinda ignored me. Nancy was a terrible guide , she was not organised at all. We waited so long out side the ticket area when we arrived at linerhof - she could not organise her group. Linderhof was beautiful - amazing castle and the grounds were gorgeous. Very picturesque.
I approached the tour guide again and she said the hotel at Fussen should have all my info when we arrive at neuschwanstein castle. Once we arrived Nancy took me to Hotel Muller if it wasn't for the hotel staff my nerves would not have settle
Neuschwanstein Castle WAS AMAZING it was breathtaking. I was relaxed by this stage I had checked into the hotel and all was good. I was happy. I was enjoying my afternoon at the castle. Once all the tourist left Fussen, it was such a quite little town. Beautiful, surround by both castles. The next day the hotel organised my tickets too Hohenschwangau castle. Everyone at the hotel was fantastic. Breakfast the next morning was fresh and delicious.
So I'm not sure if I rate the tour on what I saw or how I felt when the tour guide had no idea I was on an overnight tour, and really didn't seem to care! If I had to do it all again I would stay overnight but plan the thing myself. And not book this tour. Definitely stay at hotel Muller.
Tour Guides and timing was spot on. The time after the Linderhof Castle and small town could have been a little longer.
Saw a lot in one day without having to hire a car. Plenty of time to walk to Neuschwanstein and do timed tour and walk back to coach. Loved Linderhof too. Quick tour there. Not much time to see gardens before we had to be back on coach. Not much to see at Oberamergau though.
Very nice tour. The castles of Linderhof and Neuschwanstein are spectacular and well worth a visit.
The tour was well organized and the guide very helpful and prepared.
Because Gray Line tries to sell out their buses, this small group tour was well worth it. When we went, there were only twenty people on the bus, which offered very comfortable seats with plenty of room. The snacks were nice and our tour guide was quite efficient. The visits to Neuschwanstein and Linderhof justify the trip, but we also visited Oberammergau--a very pleasant surprise. The only downside: this is a very full day and a very busy itinerary!
Luxury coach was excellent.....never seen a bus like it! With just 14 of us, the guide, Holger, was informative and very organised and helpful, and the Neuschwanstein Castle just shouts out for itself. It is fabulous and the entire area very beautiful. We also liked the Linderhof visit and thought the entire package very worthwhile.
Thank you for a great tour of Schloss Linderhof and Neuschwanstein castles. A wonderful day and a great guide and bus driver.
We had a great time visiting Linderhof and Neuschwanstein. Such a beautiful part of the world. The tour guide Ursula was well versed in the history and sights as we went along. Wear comfy walking shoes because there is alot of walking/stairs. Truly spectacular places to see. Well worth the price.
Overall we were very happy but would have liked more time at Linderhof. We could have skipped the hour long stop at Oberammergau - mostly souvenir shopping. We were the only overnighters on the trip. At lunch our guide checked us into Hotel Muller and we were on our own until 4:30 the next day.

The highlight of this tour is the visit to Neuschwanstein castle. You get to spend 4 hours walking around the castle and taking a tour. This is the perfect amount of time to see the castle from all angles. The Linderhof castle is visited before Neuschwanstein, and you're not there for very long. I could have done without seeing the Linderhof castle, it's much smaller. I docked 1 star because the tour guide seemed like he didn't want to be there. He didn't engage us very much and was very monotone in his speaking. Other than that, it was a great tour.
No wonder it is such a popular tourist destination, everything about the Royal Castles is fascinating. Great to begin the day with an informative tour of Linderhof Castle as well as a short but enjoyable wander through the beautiful gardens. Great too to have a lunch break in Oberammergau and get to see some of the distinctive fresco painted houses. The highlight of the day was seeing and going on the guided tour of Neuschwanstein Castle. A simply amazing castle and the views from it out over the countryside are stunning.To fit everything in on this day tour, you have to keep moving but our bus guide was wonderful at no only giving us an informative commentary on our travels, but also keeping everyone well informed on time frames. Would highly recommend this day tour to see and marvel at some amazingly beautiful places in Barvaria.
We visited Linderhof on a rainy day in June but it was still beautiful, as were the gardens. The weather just added a certain charm to the day. Our time there was nice and relaxed.
Oberammergau is a quaint town with painted buildings, shops and cafes. It's like stepping into a fairytale! So lovely! We felt that there wasn't enough to time to explore it though and after tourist shopping we only had time for coffee, no lunch. The tour was on a Sunday, so not all the shops were open.
Must say that our tour guide was fantastic! She was so nice and informative!
Definitely an amazing day out from Munich and would do it again!
There was an English speaking tour coach and the tour guide was wonderful in narrating the history of Bavaria and Ludwig II. It was very well organized and we loved the linderhof castle. Awesome beauty amdist a scenic locale. Too good and I would recommend the tour any day !
Really great tour.Firstly Linderhof Castle is stunning(though sadly not much time to see the grounds).Then a quick stop in beautiful Oberammergau for shopping and a lovely ice cream.Then Neuschwanstein which is magical.Its very busy(especially the bridge) lot of walking involved so have good shoes.
Fantastic day trip, the Linderhof Palace and Neushwanstein Castle are a must see. The tour is very comfortable, air conditioned coach and you are always kept in the know about the plan for the day and no queuing for tickets, the tour guide collects them in advance and hands them out to us. The tour includes a trip to a lovely village and time for lunch in the beautiful local restaurants. I would recommend this to all my friends going to Munich.
The drive to the castles was beautiful. Linderhof was built as a hunting lodge by Ludwig II. We stopped at the small town of Oberammergau, home of the Passion Play. Neuschawnstein Castle the Disney castle was built in 1869. It is quite a trek to walk up to the castle and once inside there are about 300 steps. We are glad we took the hike. The view from up top is amazing.
