This tour is a must!! My husband and I went into both castles (totally worth the $25) and we were blown away. I also recommend going on the bridge at Neuschwanstein. It is absolutely terrifying, but the view is unbeatable.

This was a well organized trip and very interesting. We learned alot of interesting facts. Enjoyed the walking. You will get some exercise on this tour and a few hills to climb. But so worth it. We had a beautiful day. Worth taking this tour. Guides were great.

I usually like to do things on my own instead of taking tours, but I'm glad I took this tour. Do buy the tickets from tour operator for the castles. It is well worth it. You are pretty much on your own when you get to the castles, which I loved. Your given a timed ticket for entering the castle. You have plenty of free time to see and take pictures.

Great tour! Our guide and the bus driver were well-organized and they kept the tour on schedule so we were able to see lots of things. Viator handled everything -- purchasing the entrance tickets (extra cost) and scheduling the entry times (very important because of the crowds at each location). The bus was comfortable and well-stocked with refreshments. The guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining. Very glad we booked with Viator rather than trying to visit the castles on our own.

I went here with my family just a couple of days ago and it was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had! The tour was super organized and neat, and our guide was super informative and kind. You will learn a lot of history about the castle and the king and you’ll see so many breathtaking sights, but be prepared for a lot of walking. At the Neuschwansteinstein castle you can take a bus or horse carriage the quarters up and walk fifteen minutes, so that’s just a little pointer. The bridge where you can see the view is pretty crowded, so be patient and you’ll get an amazing picture because it’ll clear up eventually. You have plenty of time to catch a bite for lunch in the village and the walk to Lake Alpsee is super short and pleasant. I definitely recommend this trip to anyone, and it’s also very family friendly :)
