Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable. Easy to contact on WhatsApp to set up meeting place other than Füssen met in Schwangau since we were driving from Garmisch. The skip-the-line feature was well worth it. A bit of a hike walking up the hill to the castle entrance, but the view, photo opportunities, and the guides info made you quickly forget about that. The kids loved the horse carriage ride down. We sat up front next to the coachman. The inside tour, itself, was given by the castle staff. Also very good.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

Great way to do Neuschwanstein, because crowds are huge. Meeting place was just as described, tour was punctual and Amir was a wonderful guide. Despite the fact that it was cold and rainy we still had a good time. Photos not as good due to weather but we still got some nice shots and the tour was exactly as advertised.

Great tour guide Pete! Full of information and funny things! The castle itself is AWESOME! Was expecting more fairytale in the carriage ride but that's my own silliness. Pick up point is easy to find right across from hotel. There is garage right there for parking,if you have a car. Don't forget to go to the other smaller castle, it is just as grand.

So glad that I decided to sign me and my daughter up for this tour. Everything was arranged flawlessly and we had plenty of time to see everything that was included. We did not feel rushed at all. Peter was our tour guide and was full of knowledge, was friendly, and kept the tour interesting.

Peter was our wonderful tourguide, could answer all question about the castle tour.
I highly recommend an organized tour, no waiting in line for anything, maybe Peter just
timed it right.
The carriage ride at the end of the tour was perfect.
If possible go early in the day.
This tour was just perfect.
