A brilliant tour! A very long day but worth it to see an amazing castle. Worth outlining that if it is snowing or likely to be, wear some decent shoes some of our group didn't as if the bus isnt running you'll have a 30 minute walk to the castle totally worth it! Our guide Petra had a great grasp of English and had a great insight into the history of the monarchy and the castle and provided pictures and information whilst on the train journey to Fussen. Well recommended tour.
This castle is a Do Not Miss! We went Dec 30th and it was no small-group tour, but because of the holiday I guess it's understandable. While on the train our guide British but forgot his name was super in going up and down speaking to everyone and beginning the story of the castle.
You get on a bus from the train and take a short ride through the really charming town and get off at the foothills of the castle.
Then you walk and walk and walk going up a very winding but beautiful road to the top. We stopped at a cute restaurant half way up and had a brat which was delish!
The tour of the castle is given by a castle guide, not Viator's guide. It was still great.
It's a fantastic story and a really fun day trip.
Great gift shops too.
This trip is incredible! The guide gives you a lot of the information and is open to further questions at any time. The area around the castle is quite an scenery and there are good restaurants nearby.
Fantastic tour! Loads of information about the Royal Family and the intrigue surrounding this castle. Would recommend to family and friends.
Austin from Radius Tours was the best tour guide we've ever had. We'd even consider flying him all over the world to lead us on other tours. I highly recommend requesting him. He may the tour funny, and interesting. The castle itself was amazing, too!
Was every thing I expected. Our guide was funny and informative about everything. Gave us a nice history lesson
Jeff from Radius tours was an excellent guide and the day was absolutely magical!
We really enjoyed the tour. Neuschwanstein castle, alps, and German countryside are amazing!

What a fantastic day out and what a guide could not have asked for anything better. The whole day from start to finish was amazing. Thank you

After three weeks of seeing many many castles, this trip was worth it. Our tour guide Kevin was great, keeping us amused along the way. The train trip was around two hours each way but the scenery was worth it in December and the doughnuts!
This was such a beautiful tour! Our guide was very fun and interesting, which made for a great day to look at such a beautiful castle!
This is a must see. Absolutely beautiful. Our tour guide was great too and told some interesting stories!
A very pleasant and informative day out. Our tour guide Verena was helpful, kind and her knowledge of subject outstanding. Stunning views, a great experience that is highly recommended.
Austin from Radius Tours was fantastic and made sure everything had a great day and fun time travelling to Neuschwanstein Castle. The day went very smoothly and we learned a lot about the history of the castle and King Ludwig II. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in going to this castle. You will not be disappointed.
Wonderful day trip. Nic was a great guide and very knowledgeablez
If you visit Munich then this Day Trip is a must! A very well Organised trip to see one of the biggest landmarks in Germany.
Our Tour Guide Roland was excellent, helpful, knowledgeable and very well spoken, he even knows a few short cuts/ tricks to help all the party enjoy their day and avoid the inevitable queues.
The castle itself is fantastic and every bit as good as it looks online, Roland pre booked our tour times and allowed us plenty of time to see as much of Schwangau as we could before avoiding the rush back.
We booked everything through Viatour online, very easy and all the staff we came across were very helpful. Really enjoyed Roland's stories regarding Ludwig extremely interesting, a credit to his company.
Well organised and smoothly run tour with good mix of an informed guide and some free time and space to explore the castle and the surrounding area. As the viator site clearly states the castle ticket is not included in the price thus be sure to factor in 12euro into the total price when considering the tour, although the guide is excellent at ensuring easy transport, and also ensures that you dont have to join in the rather substantial ticket queues.
This was a surprisingly great tour. I didn't have the highest expectations, I mean, the castle is beautiful and all but is it really an all day thing? Our guide Austin made it so fun, from his story telling abilities, understanding of history and the larger societal forces at the time, to simple knowledge on how to best get around, it made for a great balance of info, scenery, and time to enjoy the foothills of the alps on a crisp, clear autumn day.
Traveling to foot of the German Alps was a great idea, and these guys make it easy to do. The price of a Viator-contracted tour is fair, and the local guides they use are eminently qualified. I think that the grandeur of Neuschwanstein Castle speaks for itself, so all that's left to do it visit the castle both inside and out.
Brilliant tour, Nic our guide was funny, informative,engaging in all aspects of the days trip. Easy 2hr train ride to Fusson station and then a 40min walk up a rather steep incline which Nic stopped our group to rest for 10mins at 3 stages to make the walk easier. We loved this tour and would thoroughly recommend to anyone to do. The castle and its history brilliantly explained to our tour group by Nic our guide was the best tour I've been on. Nic is a brilliant tour guide.

This was the highlight of my visit to Germany. My wife and I loved our tour guide Nick from Radius Tours. He was hands down the best tour guide of my traveling life. He tells an amazing story of the whole life of Ludwig II and his family. Such an interesting location and the tour is very entertaining. Nick took time to get to know everyone in the group and on the train ride back checked in with everyone to see if he could offer directions or recommendations in Munich. He told my wife and I about a great Italian restaurant close to where we were staying and we had a wonderful time. Thanks Nick!
My husband and I enjoyed this with Radius Tours. Aiden was our guide and did a wonderful job. Once we arrived in Fussen we had a little time for a snack before the long walk up to the castle. After the castle tour we had our own free time, but was not enough as we had to hussle down the hill to get ready for our ride back to Munich.
