Was a fantastic journey to a stunning sight. Petra was very nice, knowledgeable and thorough in her tour We had a wonderful time!
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Well worth the time and money!
Our tour guide Keith from Scotland was amazing! We had such a great time with him and found him to be supremely knowledgeable about the area and history of Fussen and Neuschwanstein. Would definitely do this tour again when I return to Germany!
This tour made it easy to get to the castle and provided us with some background information on Ludwig and the history behind Neuschwanstein. Train ticket there, bus to the site, lunch stop, bus to the top of the crazy hill, and back to Munich all for one price!
Guide -Roland -v good and entertaining. Remember additional cost for bus and tour of castle. Even after bus there us quite walk from viewing platform to castle esplanade. If you choose horse and carriagedo on way down as you won't want go viewing platform, uphill, after castle. Queues for bus tickets ridiculous in hot weather. More needs done to process bus tivket queues quicker. Remember if u choose to walk from bottom, it is v long and steep. You'll need to be fit and have lots water. Castle v well preserved inside and out and spectacular views on good day. Hof ttowards bottom hill -with seating up side, v good and reasonably priced.
We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Keith was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The castle is definitely a must see! Don't forget to enjoy Quarkballchen donut that the area is known for...so good!!!!
Heine was a very good guide - was confident and knew what he was doing and how to reorganize the group when necessary in a very efficient at reorganizing the group when necessary -- and was a great story-teller. We would recommend this trip to fellow travelers.
Our guide couldn't have been better. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The tour of the castle interior was rather short and by audio guide because that's how Neuschwanstein is run... but there was plenty to absorb from our real guide before and after. The grounds were fun to explore as well. Also: getting to the castle is slightly complicated, so having a guide is a definite plus!
Wonderful tour w/Aidan as our tour guide. Train ride was great, castle stunning. About a 30 minute walk up a steep paved road to reach the castle. Take the bus if you need to. Marian Bridge was open, see that for the best photo op. Just a wonderful day. Highly recommend!!

Adrian was the best tour guide! He made the day into an adventure... sharing so much rich backstory and history along our travels to and from the castle. He was a wealth of information! The tour was great, all the work was done for us, we just had to be at the set locations at the set times and all of the thinking and navigating was done for us.
Our guide was fantastic! It's a great way to spend a day, and it's a must do if you're in Munich for more than a day or two. It meets at the main train station, and we all took the train there and back as a group.
Nic was great. I had an issue with walking the steep parts and he took exceptional care of me.
This was a great day trip. So interesting and lovely scenery. Our guide, Jeff, was very good. He kept us entertained on the train with knowledge and fun. He certainly contributed to our enjoyment.
Excellent value for the money, very well organized, great infotainment. The group size allowed for a personalized tour, our guide Petra was fantastic.
We had wonderful experience with our trip to Neuschwanstein. Our tour guide, Petra, did an excellent job providing historical background, guiding us through the trains/bus, and making sure everyone received personal attention.
If we had it to do over, I would include the Hohenschwangau tour too- just to see more of the interior of the castles because the interior tour of Neuschwanstein is only 30-40mins. Also, I would recommend taking the bus to the castle rather than walking due to the time limit you have. This would allow you to see more of the castle grounds/Marian bridge before your group goes into the castle.
We were very pleased with our trip- Thank you!
This is a great day trip if you are staying in Munich. The price includes your transportation to and from the castle. It's an unbelievably beautiful place and we'd highly recommend visiting.
We had an enthusiastic and friendly tour guide - Austin - who kept us all together for the journey to and from the castle from Munich. Austin stopped periodically to talk about Ludvig II and how the castle came to be in his own style which was funny, factual and compelling. I highly recommend this tour, and Austin, as both were well organised and allowed us to skip all the tourist lines and long walk up to the castle. Everything was smooth and easy and it was an enjoyable day.
Don't go to Neuschwanstein yourself - go through this tour and make your day quicker and easier!
Aidan was awesome, hilarious and remembered all of our names! Super impressive and a great guy. The castle was amazing as was the tour. Highly recommend.
We really enjoyed the beautiful castle as well as the countryside. Susanne was really nice and very informative. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
We had a very unusual experience while on this tour to the Neuschwanstein Castle. We enjoyed 2 nice train rides and then a bus ride to get to the castle. Upon arriving, we ate lunch at a nice cafe and then began our steep walk up to the Castle which took an hour. The actual tour of the castle is about 45 minutes. Susanna, our guide did a great job with giving us loads of information about the history of the castle. After leaving the site, we returned to Munich via the bus and train. It happened that on this day, Munich experienced a shooting in a shopping mall and just as we were getting into the vicinity of central Munich, we heard about it on the train. The decision was made for us to get off the train at the train stop Munich - Pasing since it was outside the area that the shootings were occurring. Susanna did a great job keeping our group together during the chaos and advised us to stop in at a biergarten in the area to have dinner as we waited to hear about updates as to what was going on in the city center. We spent several hours in the restaurant and later learned that all trains, buses, were shut down and taxis were very limited. As the night wore on, Susanna stayed with us and then made the very generous offer that her husband would be arriving soon to the restaurant and would shuttle groups of us back into the city to our hotels! What a lifesaver for us, since we had no other way to get back to our hotel. We were very grateful for the kindness of Susanna and her husband. We can't say enough about these 2 people and how helpful they were to us and other members of our tour group!
Really good tour, save a lot of hassle with the transportation and getting of the entrance tickets to the castle. Sufficient time to see everything.
Aidan was an excellent guide and was very knowledgeable as well as personable. The grounds and the Castle were impressive despite the challenging weather we encountered.
We enjoyed the scenic train ride on the way to Fussen. We had enough time to visit the castle as well as explore the surrounding. Our guide Aiden was very friendly and informative.
