Best Tour of My Trip

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.
Very well organized schedule

This was my favorite day from our stay in Munich. Our host Ryan was great, the swim and hike were picturesque, lunch was delicious, and the castle is beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour!

Excellent!

The tour was excellent. Our guides were Ryan and Danielle. They were both very knowledgable and made the day even better. We started the day by driving to the Bavarian countryside where we got out bikes and rode to the lake, it was amazing. The castle was in the distance and the countryside was so peaceful and beautiful. Once at the lake you were given the opportunity to have a swim or to relax and take photos. After that we rode back to the spot we got the bikes from, which happens to be where we ate lunch! Lunch was delicious and we made our lunch selection on the bus prior to arrival so we weren't wasting time. Lunch was a suffiencient time not rushed. After lunch we made our way to the castle, given the opportunity to hike to the top or catch the bus! Once at the castle we saw Mary's bridge and then waited for our reservation for the castle tour. Ryan educated us along the way about the history of King Ludwig and told us information that the tour of the castle doesn't include, such things like what it was used for during the war. Ryan and Danielle were both great tour guides and there love and passion for the job is very evident. Would definitely reccomend this tour and would be using this tour company again.

Ryan and Patrick gave me a history lesson about Munich that I won’t forget. They were very accommodating and left no stone unturned. Thanks for all the effort.
DO NOT TRUST VIATOR's INFORMTION

We paid for this Tour thinking it was what was described. Many things were very different for us. The price of the castle entry fee way higher than it told us, Their was no Wi-Fi on the bus as advertised, it tells you than you can do a bike ride and a swim in the lake on this tour. What is does not tell you is that the bike ride is about 4 miles according to guide, you only get a few minutes to swim and it tells you to bring a swimsuit, but their is no place to change only behind some trees. and if you swim you do not get to see the best photo opportunity. It promises helmets for bikes but we never saw or were offered any. The guide himself was great!!! It also tells you that lunch is not included but makes you believe their are places to get lunch. Then you get on the actual bus and they give you a menu to choose from (so my family thought they had to choose and it was included) it was not included... So this TOUR cost me ALOT more than planned and it was very frustrating. They have a satisfaction guarantee according to their website but when I called they said only if TOUR company was willing to provide, and would not take any responsibility for their wrong information. TOUR COMPANY TOUR GUIDE told me they have given correct information to VIATOR numerous times and they don't change anything or listen. VIATOR should be offering me aa partial refund as it cost me way more than planned and it is their lack of changing information that caused this problem. I will not book anything else from VIATOR...
Enjoyable trip

Very lovely trip experience with a great guide, Ryan. We chose not to do the optional bike tour before lunch since we did a bike tour in Munich the day before, but we had the best time playing mini-golf instead! At the restaurant where we had lunch (and the departure point for the bike tours), my son and I played 18 holes of mini-golf surrounded by the alps and the castle. Perfect! The tour up to the castle was invigorating (don't take the bus--do as much hiking as you can), and the tour of the interior of the castle was short, but interesting. It is short because there are only 12 rooms in the castle that are completed!
