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.
We loved it. This was the best tour ever, our guide was excellent. When we entered the castle the guide said no pictures were to be taken.
But at the end of the tour he turned away and we all got to take awesome pictures.
We also had a horse carriage ride down the mountain. I recommend this tour.

Our tour guide was exceptional. Keeping us together for the train ride and the tour. I apologize for not remembering his name....I feel like such a Nob. He will know who he is with that said. From Africa He made some great recommendations on grabbing a quick bite to eat before we started up Heavy Metal and Sausages! Awesome! and he had a wealth of information. We learned so much about the hows and the whys of the castle. Also information he gave us about the castle showed up in Munich when we toured a day later. Great tour and even greater tour guide. THANKS! PS. take the time to walk up to the bridge!!
Highly recommend this tour! Nic was a fantastic guide, all in all a fab day!
Neuschwanstein is obviously one or the most charming places you can go, located near the Bavarian Alps just half a click from the Austrian border it's quite romantic and spectacular. You would enjoy both surrounding landscapes and the castle itself observing the beauty of the castle and nature outside watching the paragliders in the air above.
Try planning your trip on a sunny day to get best pictures from around the castle and of course Marienbrucke.
Also, special thanks to our tour guide Verena from Radius Tours who was keeping us engaged with her stories of the castle and King Ludwig all the way from the very first second of our tour to the last one.
This tour was amazing. Our guide Keith Scottish was very knowledgeable and made the day more fun. It was nice having a guide escort us to the Castle and back. The trains on the way back ended up being canceled and Keith arranged transportation back without us having to worry about it.
Spectacular!! Our guide Jeff was very entertaining and helpful the whole day. The tour is really nice, even the train rides through the Bavarian country side have amazing views. Then the castle, just as if it came out of a fairy story.
The tour was great for the price. It was nice having travel accommodations to and from the castle handled for us. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we had a great time. We also were able to skip the line and go right into the castle. Great views everywhere. Definitely worth it!
A truly beautiful place! Verena was fun to travel with and she had very good stories about King Ludwig and his castles.
Keith was an awesome tour guide!! My girlfriends and I had an amazing day tour! Very organized and we learned so much. Definitely will be recommending this tour to friends!
Roland was a great tour guide! I would recommend this trip to anyone traveling to Germany.
Radius took excellent care of us during our full-day tour of Neuschwanstein Castle. Our guide, Aidan was engaging and very informative giving us lots of little insider facts that the tour run by the castle would have completely missed. He was also super helpful in helping everyone on the tour make the most of their time at the castle and in Munich overall. We left enchanted by the beauty of the castle and surrounding area as well as the story of Ludwig II and the Wittelsbach dynasty. I would highly recommend to anyone spending a few days in Munich!
We loved the small group train tour. Roland, our tour guide couldn't have been better. He took care of all the details, providing the small group with all the information we needed to navigate the grounds and castle. Roland was interesting, humorous and provided an interesting history of the castle. Such a great value. Highly recommend.
Awesome Tour. I strongly suggest Radius Tours as an excellent Tour company to use this. The climb walk up to the castle is very tiresome, but totally worth it. The tour guide was excellent also. All in all a MUST see tour when in Munich.
Neuschwanstein is a must see, and our guide Hein was great--informative and very organized. It's a long day 10 am - 8 pm but absolutely worth it
A must see when visiting Munich. Our guide, Nick, was great. Full of great historical stories. Very fun!
