Great places to visit. Highly recommend you be in good shape to walk to the castle. It is a long uphill walk but worth it. The trip really would have been better to start sooner because of the long drive or split the 2 tours. The time spent at each place was really too short. I will probably go revisit each to spend more leisure time to enjoy them. Also, the provided lunch is just pre-made sandwiches and water you had 2 options. Recommend you bring additional fruit and snacks like we did. The guide did give us great information during the drive and stopped to be sure we saw areas of interest. He even stopped to place the castle in the backdrop and took photos of each person/ family with the castle in view.
The trip is a very long one and the van used to transport the tourists was not comfortable for this trip. It provided no arm or leg rests. The stops were few and made at gas stations along the way that offered almost exclusively junk food the company only provided one sandwich and one bottle of water for this extra long day trip The tour company made us pay Euro 1.80 extra bus fare to take us up to the Neuschwanstein castle. I thought this was really cheap on their part, especially after the amount of money each tourist paid to get on this excursion.
