Excellent day at Ludwig's castles!
Dale_W, Aug 2022
Well organised trip. Gerda was an excellent, personable and knowledgeable guide. Just be aware that there is a lot of walking if you want to do Neuschwanstein justice!

The coach we travelled with was comfortable. Our guide was super friendly and helpful. The trip itself was definitely worth it, both castles are beautiful.
A fabulous tour not to be missed!

Everything about this tour was amazing! The bus was very comfortable, Katarina the tour guide was fabulous and her knowledge was wonderful. Linderhof was amazing as was Neuschwanstein.

Ning_W, Jul 2022
Excellent tour - very efficient organisation of everything. The tour guide was very responsive and provided very detailed background information about the tour. One suggestion could be that, the actual castle tour was expected to finish at 4:55, it left quite limited time for us to visit the castle shops on the way back to the coach which would depart at 5:30PM.
Awesome time
Charles_B, Jul 2022
Absolutely beautiful, the bus tour guide and driver were both super nice! Locations were gorgeous and everything was well timed.

Amelia_N, Jul 2022
I enjoyed visiting the Linderhof and Neuschwanstein Castle. Our guide Christine was knowledgeable and helpful. A reminder to bring euro's cash for paying for the entry tickets and if you want to take the bus up for Neuschwanstein. Neuschwanstein had multiple stands you could buy bratworst or hot dogs for a reasonable price as well as some gelato places.

Lovely day out
Emily_H, Jul 2022
I wanted to come here for years, so I really enjoyed having a tour to learn about the history of the castle. A friend recommended I see the Palace as well as the castle, which is why I picked this trip. Great information by our guide Christine, very informative and helpful.
Kristine and Neuschwanstein, a great combo.
Betty_G, Jul 2022
Kristine was a wonderful guide and knew her history and facts about Ludwig II and history of his family. She was quite organized and knew where to go, when to be where-kept us on schedule so we weren’t wasting time. It was a long, but fulfilling day.
Lovely Bus Trip
Nate_L, Jul 2022
This was a very nice bus ride out to the castles. The host Monica did a wonderful job as a tour guide in the bus for everything we drove by. It's a little longer than you expected - though right at the time they said it would be.
It's fast, but it's worth...
Daniella_L, Jul 2022
It's fast, but it's worth it. You must be attentive to the timetable. The place is fantastic, the tour guide is very sympathetic.

Great experience - recommended!
Jennifer_K, Jun 2022
Great trip and good price - MUCH easier than trying to figure out public transportation from Munich. Tour guide was informative and interesting, and driver was competent and the bus was comfortable (and air conditioned! 🙌). My kids aged 11 and 14 enjoyed it and we would definitely recommend the experience.
Awesome day visiting Ludwig castles
Rohit_B, Jun 2022
We had a wonderful tour guide Francisca who explained everything so well and showed landmarks along the way as we travelled to both the castle. It was an amazing day and both castles are worth the visit.
Trip to Remember

Loved it! (Bring cash and an N95 mask!)
megangator, Jun 2022
Ohhhh my gosh we LOVED this tour! The castles are absolutely gorgeous! It was also super nice to be driven by bus and have the tickets already reserved. We debated just taking the train and doing it ourselves but we are SO glad we went with the tour instead. We got a lot more historical background, we didn’t have to stress about the different transportation getting there and our tickets were already reserved. I felt SO bad for the people showing up to Neuschwabstein Castle to find out it was all sold out (it sells out quick!). The only only downside is having to bring cash. I think the original details of the trip say to bring cast but purchasing the tour through Viator doesn’t include the tickets inside of the castle. Each person needs to pay an additional $28 cash per person to cover their tickets. A lot of people didn’t realize it and had to run to an ATM to get cash. It would be so much better to just pre-pay it and add that into the tour price (instead of $60 plus bring cash for tickets, just charge $88 and have the tickets included). Other than that it was great! **Don’t forget to bring cash and a N95 mask!! They won’t let you in the castles without an N95 mask**

HungHooi_T, Jun 2022
The castle tour was very well organised. I was impressed with the efficiency and effectiveness of how we were guided through the tour. Both the castle and the palace were fabulous and interesting too.
Excellent tour! But beware the morning meeting spot
TingYean_S, Jun 2022
We had a wonderful guide named Francesca (not sure I’m spelling her name correct). She did an excellent job telling us stories along the way, arranging tickets, giving us tips. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The only small frustration was trying to locate the morning meeting place. The train station Karlsplatz has many exits and they are labeled A-M. We tried exit F and fortunately ended up across the street from the meeting point. I heard another person could not locate the meeting point and missed our tour. It would help future tourists to know which exit to use.

Very well organised, Franziska was very knowledgeable and informative. I had done the tour 10 years ago, but still found the day interesting and was happy that I had recommended it to the others with whom I was travelling.
Wonderful !!
