Taking the city bus was a little disconcerting at first, but once we were near the castle it became clear why we had paid a little extra for the experience. The timing for the ride up to the castle, the tour and the carriage ride all were perfectly timed so that we had time to look around but also moved to the next thing without waiting. I would have liked the tour for Neuschwangau to be included also--once you are there, you really do want to go in both castles, but adding it on a sunny day in July wasn't possible because of the line.
Great tour with a wonderful guide who gave lots of tips on other things to see in the area as well. We were limited with time, so this was a great way to see the castle without having to worry about the very long lines.
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Was most helpful to have arranged everything in advance as there were lots of stages to negotiate and long lines at most of them. Beautiful castle with stunning views. Highly recommended
Our guide was well informed and managed our tour expertly. Transportation to the castle by bus and return by Horse-Drawn Carriage was wonderful since the climb is long and steep and we had a light drizzle. It is always a more enjoyable experience in a small group. Our only disappointment was that Mary's Bridge giving the best distance photos was closed but, that wasn't the tours fault.
We had a wonderful tour guide and a small number of people on the tour, which kept things very manageable. Everything was very efficient and I'm so glad we chose to tour Neuschwanstein this way. The horse drawn carriage ride at the end was a nice touch! Would do the same tour again!
Your Guide was Amir and he was awesome! They are very prompt, so you must be on time. There is a walk from the bus dropped to the castle with some uphill climbs, so be prepared. The carriage ride is from the castle back down the hill which is very nice and relaxing. Great tour! Definite must do!
Easy and convenient. Only way to evade hustling with long bus or castle lines. Guide was helpful and friendly.

This was my 1 favorite visit throughout our European vacay. We had a mishap and was unable to meet at the designated time. I called the number and spoke to our tour guide. She was very nice and gave me exact instructions to meet them at the base of the castle. I wish i remembered her name. She was a lovely lady with long dark blonde hair. We met the group at the base with no problem. She was informative and walked us to different spots for picture prior to going to the castle. We were very lucky and had a beautiful day and had just breathtaking views. This tour came with the carriage ride. I would recommend to just purchase the tour without it. The lines and the wait for the carriage ride was VERY long. So long that we just decided to skip it and walk down the mountain instead. However, it was a long walk, but very pretty. This place is simply gorgeous and I hope you have great weather as we did to truly see the views.
Our tour guide was very nice and we really loved what we were able to accomplish in 4 hours of limited time we had. If you are short on time and don't like standing on long queues this tour is absolutely worth it.
Absolutely recommend this as a way to see Neushwanstein castle. We did not want to take a day tour as we were able to drive from Munich in our rental so did not need picked up. We met at the tour office and were greeted quickly and warmly. Amir, our tour guide, was fantastic. Very friendly and talked us through what we were seeing around the small town and the castle. We were handed off to a tour guide for the castle and were met promptly when we exited to continue our tour. Great experience and the group loved it. Thank you!!
We enjoyed the trip. The guide was very good and very helpful. Was a wonderful experience and beautiful country
Great experience! Our tour guide Emma was fantastic. What a nice young lady and very knowledgable.
The trip was well planned and enjoyable and my family of 8 had a great time!
It was great to Skip the line.
Great sights, wonderful time. However the Horse-Drawn carriage part didn't happen because of long lines waiting for them and the schedule didn't permit it. That was disappointing.
It was a very enjoyable tour! Is definitely worth taking to avoid the long lines. Our guide, Florian, really took care of our group and was a lot of fun!
The lines to get tickets are massive and very limited. If you go during high season, you have to take this tour, or one like it. Forget trying to go on your own. The castle itself is impressive, but smaller inside than you will expect due to it never having been completed. I would strongly recommend taking this tour as part of a combination with other Castles, but if you only want to see neuschwanstein, this is a necessary option. If you go off season, just skip this tour. On season, it is a MUST. Or you just can't get in.
The tour was well organized and Astrid was a knowledgeable and pleasant guide. She took advantage of available services such as the shuttle up to the town at the base of the castle and the shuttle from there to the Castle. She shared quite a bit of interesting information on Ludwig and the castle and got us to our 10:30am tour right on time. We enjoyed the tour very much...so glad we took the time to visit Neuschwanstein. I'm not surprised it is one of Germany's biggest attractions.
Excellent tour - the guide was really knowledgeable and knew her stuff. Did a great job - definitely recommend and would use this company again.
