Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What a tour! The castles are amazing, the day is really well planned so you have plenty of time to see everything you want. Our tour guide, Max, was brilliant, very knowledgeable and funny. Even though he didn't have a lot of time to plan the day it went perfectly. I would happily go on this tour again

It was a very enjoyable and memorable trip esp Neuschwanstein castle...and the fact that it had snowed the day before our visit

This tour was so much fun! Linderhof was smaller than I expected however, it was 100 worth seeing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was very informative. Neuschwanstien was incredible even though the tour itself was pretty lacking. You receive an audio guide while you're ushered from room to room by a guide. The inside is incredible so I suggest the tour. If you decide to go to Marienbrucke the bridge you can take pictures of the castle from I suggest grabbing lunch at the Bistro and then walking up. We took our sandwiches with us and ate them once we made it to the bridge. The view is worth the steep hike. Our tour guide, Monica, was so nice and helpful. I would take a tour with her any day.

An absolute must. Our German tour guide Marcus was a little crusty but a great guide nonetheless. Super informative, gorgeous sites, amazing history and a really great day. Our 13 and 15-year-old kids loved it too. Wouldnt change a thing, and would even go on it again. Helpful hint: punctuality is super important. My motto is if youre not 10 minutes early, you're late. The German motto is something like if youre not 20 minutes early were leaving without you.

Fab day and great stop offs along the way, comfy bus and great views! Best way to do it, I have had friends who have driven and not been able to fit everything in properly!

Did this tour in October and had a great day out, the tour was full on but very interesting. Did both tours of Linderhof and Neuschwanstein both so different but beautiful. The guide was very good and tour was well organised. Had a stopover at a little town called Oberammergau famous for their passion play, which the guide explained the history of, the town was so beautiful surrounded by the Barvarian Alps. The guide explained the history of King Lugwig II which made touring the castles more wonderful. Linderhof is a lot smaller more like a mansion than a castle but no less impressive and the surrounds are beautiful, but the main attraction was Neuschwanstein even though it was never finished inside, it is still worth the tour but mind you there is about 300 steps of spiral staircases to climb but well worth it. You also have to walk up to the castle but lots of food and drink kiosks on the way but there is a shuttle bus or a horse and carriage that can take you there as well. Lovely day out, lots crammed into the day but well worth it.
