Highly Recommend !
Jeff, Sep 2022
Very knowledgable about the history and the best views for photos and geography of the area. Timely, professional an courteous. Would recommend! We had a great time!!!
Gorgeous sights with a great guide
Christopher_M, Sep 2022
Wonderful tour, even on a cold rainy day. Our guide, Alex was knowledgeable and lots of fun to spend the day with. He was smart to have us start early and get to Neuschwanstein first, ahead of the crowds and while we were still fresh. We stopped for lunch across the border in Austria and bumped into his older brother, who is also a guide and they exchanged info on the next stops, as his brother’s tour was going in the opposite direction. All around a terrific day!
Amazing experience!
Katherine_E, Sep 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed every part of this tour. Alex was our guide and was incredible. His English was perfect, he was extremely knowledgeable, and he was able to help us maximize the day. The castle tour itself was shorter than I realized, but all the other components of the day made it an incredible and unique experience. Driving through the Alps was so beautiful, and we were happy to have Alex leading the way. I would 100% recommend the experience.
Experienced Guide
Kiran_R, Aug 2022
Excellent tour!! This trip was made even more memorable with our tour guide Mike. I have taken many tours and seen many guides - sometimes getting irritated when asked many questions but not Mike. He made us visit a maximum number of places during this trip within the available time - I'm 100% no other guide would have done like Mike. Overall a great tour and great people managing it. I would highly recommend this to everyone visiting Munich.
A Tour with Some Great Attractions and Beautiful Scenery
Patricia_H, Aug 2022
The tour was great! We saw adorable towns and the palace and castle were just beautiful! Our guide Martin was fantastic!! He suggested an alpine roller coaster which was one of the high points of the tour. Unfortunately, clouds covered the castle when we got there, but he tried his best to make it the most positive experience possible and his upbeat attitude really helped. He also gave us a lot of interesting information and was just a pleasure to be with.
Mike’s a terrific guide...
Maryann_R, Aug 2022

Highlight tour during our time in Munich.
Shelly_N, Aug 2022
Highlight of our time in Munich was our private tour to Neuschwanstein Castle. Our tour guide Mike was absolutely fabulous and had so much knowledge of the Castle and surrounding area as we drove from Munich to the Castle. A really fantastic day!
Fantastic day!
Shelley_H, Aug 2022
Super accommodating. We enjoyed the history of the area. Great photo opps. Toboggan ride was a bonus! Even with a hail storm heading up the sky lift. Alex and Martin were so great!

Fun on the Autobahn!
Norm_B, Jul 2022
Alex was the best. He was very friendly. He gave us lots of information about restaurants and sights to see in addition to being very well informed about the tour itself. His English is perfect, which is important in a country where English is not the first language. I would definitely recommend
A genuine experience
Ali_A, Jul 2022
Mike did a wonderful job showing us the best spots + going the extra mile with squeezing in some special stops that you shouldn't miss when visiting the castle
Unforgettable Bavarian Adventure
Ana_B, Jun 2022
Take this tour for the fastest and most enjoyable 11 hours your trip. Mike’s tour was jam-packed and very enjoyable! Very knowledgeable and professional tour guide. His self-published magazine was very impressive, informative and comprehensive — not only of the activities for that day, but also full of many ideas for future trips and sights in the region. All-encompassing experience! Highly recommend, you will not regret it!
Fast paced fun
Doug_B, Jun 2022
Saw and learned a lot in a day with our guide Alex - Ettal Abbey, Obergammau, rode the Alpine Sled, toured Linderhof Palace, lunch beside Lake Plansee in Austria and finished the day at Nueschwanstein Castle (no tour of either castle). A bit hectic but it did fit our pace however others might want a slower pace however you’ll see less. Alex will customize the tour for you to fit your pace and interests. Unfortunately the car broke down on the way home but the company provided a taxi to return to our hotel in central Munich.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi Doug. We thank you for your great review and we are sure glad you made it home safely as it was rather unfortunate that our car broke down when it did. Such is life. Also wanted to clarify to everyone reading this great review that we did inform you beforehand that the tour of the interior Neuschwanstein Castle was not an option as the tickets were sold out and you were good with that and we appreciate that you had a great time with Alex. Kind regards and safe travels.
2nd day in Germany
Angela_F, Jun 2022
A great way to start our vacation. The private tour is definitely the way you go. Tour guide was right on time, explained alot of interesting facts that we would have missed and customized our day to tailor what we wanted to do. Will definitely use them again!
Alex was an awesome tour...
Kathelyn_A, May 2022
Alex was an awesome tour guide. Full of information, experience and great suggestions. We had an amazing day. I very highly recommend; and I would definitely look up Mike’s Bike Tours again in the future. Thank you for a fabulous day.
Best way to see a lot in limited time near Munich
Justin_S, May 2022
Mike was a great guide and was very flexible to accommodate some schedule limitations on our end. He showed us all the key sites we wanted to see, and told us all about the region, Germany, and the sites we visited. Highly recommend this tour if it fits your budget.
Bavaria in a day
Mark_K, Mar 2022
Sigmund was fantastic! We enjoyed each planned stop, his great lunch selection, and his commentary all day. One of our kids said afterwards that he would “follow Sigmund anywhere in the world”.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hi Mark. Many thanks for the kind words and tell your son he can still follow me on my travel through Instagram which I believe he now does. Stay safe.
Fantastic tour
Daniel_R, Mar 2022
Fantastic tour! Alex was a superb guide. Punctual, informative and easy to spend the day with. Very highly recommended.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hi Daniel. Alex asked me to pass on the message that he also had a great day with you your amazing family, he especially enjoyed the Zugspitze with its amazing views. He has been up there many times but it never gets old. Thank you and stay safe. Kind regards
Stunning - fantastic
Cindy_K, Nov 2019
Our guide was a big part of why this tour was soo great. Nicolas was the best. He was informative, interesting, funny and caring. Great tour guide. Its a long day and a long drive but well worth it. Our stop in Oberammergau was magical - the christmas shop is stunning and open all year round. The town of Oberammergau is just picturesque. The castle is just beautiful - it wasnt finished inside and the inside tour was overcrowded and not really worth it. But from the outside the castle is stunning - as is the area. We had lunch in Austria at Lake Plansee and this was wonderful. We really enjoyed the whole tour and thank Nicolas so much for being fantastic. Its a long day and you spend a lot of time with the guide so you need to get along. Highly recommend the tour and Nicolas.

Fantastic Trip!
Michael_G, Oct 2019
Nicholas was a fantastic guide for our private tour to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Ettal, Oberammergau, the alpine coaster and Neuschwanstein Castle. We were able to enjoy our time at our own pace while gaining excellent knowledge about Munich, Bavaria, and each stop along the way. This tour was a highlight of our family trip. Highly recommend!
