Great trip! The bike tour of the valley, the lunch and then the fantastic hike to the castle.
This tour really exceeded my expectations, I was completely impressed with the number of sites we were able to see on the tour. Sigmund is unbelievable as a tour guide, very knowledgeable, and hilarious! If you are looking for an awesome tour to see a number of different palaces and awesome alp towns and churches, I would not go on any other tour.
Absolutely fantastic tour by Sigmund, Very informative and once in a lifetime experiences and views. It made our trip to Bavaria very special.
The tour was a lot of fun!! Our two tour guides were excellent. The bike ride is very leisurely so even the most out of shape folks can enjoy it. Definitely check out this tour of Neuchwanstein Castle and Bavaria!!!
Awesome experience, even my husband loved it!
Wonderful excursion from start to finish. Finding the starting point for the tour was a tad tricky, being without a phone/not knowing German, but the guides could not have been nicer! They made certain the entire group staying together and that we were well informed during the entire trip. We had a gorgeous day for the bike ride, as well as the castle tour. Plenty of places and time to stop and take in the scnenery and snap some pictures. Lunch was delicious, with breath-taking views. Easy, relaxing, nice break from our trip where someone else could take the reigns. So happy we chose this instead of going the tour of Neuschwanstein from Munich on our own. Thank you!
Guests met up at Mike's Bikes in Munich, it seemed there was a little delay getting started. Walked to a very comfortable bus several blocks away. Natalia gave an informative introduction to the planned events and discussed various points of interest as we passed them leaving Munich. A couple movies were played on the bus reviewing Ludwig II's life and controversial death, but because of various passengers' conversations it was difficult to hear the audio.
There is a choice of joining the bike ride in the morning and touring Neuschwanstein, or touring Hohenschwangau in the morning and Neuschwanstein in the afternoon. We chose the latter. The hike up from the former to the latter is steep, and with good weather it is rather warm. Brad and Maikka were experts at making sure everybody reached the destination, considering the varying paces. They are also very good at drilling into the guests the necessity for everyone to be prompt at the meeting places, such that no one or several stragglers would hold up the entire tour group. Worked like a charm! They were excellent and pleasant hosts.
Definitely recommend this trip to others, well worth the expense: fun, informative, and full of exercise! We can't speak for the bike ride, but we cycle at home and figured we had better see Hohenschwangau while we were there.
The state guides in the castles were independent of Mike's Bikes. Our guide through the lower castle had a wonderfully amusing delivery: she would introduce a room or item in the room, pause for several seconds, and then surprise us with a funny and curious fact regarding it. Very relaxing tour. Neuschwanstein was a little faster paced, like a people mover to keep the groups proceeding through. Primarily a function of the two guides' personalities.
Amazing tour! With four sites visited the whole day was a wonderful experience. Our guide, Hunter, was informative, witty and relaxed making the whole day stress and worry free. 100 recommended for any one visiting Munich. One of the cities must do activities.
Amazing tour! I saw so much and learned so much more than I would have on my own. Sigmund was awesome and made the day really fun! Thank you
great guides. do the bike tour for sure! it is relaxing, light, and you see fantastic views of the castle and nature!
