Our tour guide was Christine. She was very well informed and full of very interesting facts about the palace and the castle. The tours of the palace and castle different tour guides, was also very good. I really enjoyed the day. We stopped off in a village along the way to shop and walk around. Picturesque ride on the bus. Nice to see the countryside. Bus was comfortable sit on the upper level if you can. Christine kept us on schedule without rushing us. Overall, a great day!

Linderhof was beautiful inside and out. I enjoyed the short walk to the castle especially passing a swan in the pond on the way. There wasn't much to see in Oberammergau during the winter but the fairytale painted buildings were prett,y and we had 30 minutes to shop. Neuschwanstein was gorgeous from the outside with the snow, and although the inside tour is short, it was worth the trip. Overall, while this trip was a little rushed, it was so we could do everything and I'm glad we did. I'd say don't miss this one.

A visit to Neuschwanstein Castle is like stepping into the pages of a storybook. On our journey to Neuschwanstein, we passed through the picturesque Bavarian Alps and through a few small towns, making stops at Linderhof Castle and Oberammergau. We reached Neuschwanstein mid afternoon, and after a brisk walk to the top of the mountain, were free to explore the castle grounds for a few hours. Make sure to take a picture from Marion Bridge as this is definitely the best photo spot. Overall, a wonderful day with amazing scenery and a great guide.

The tour was amazing! We were blessed with brilliant weather on our trip to the castles in Jan and the snow covered trees, peaks and castles were an absolute delight to watch!! The coach was very comfortable!!

Great day seeing beautiful castles. The 1.5km walk up the mountain in snow may be challenging for some people. There are always long waits to use the horse drawn carriages so don't bank on them.

It was an amazing trip. The Neuschwanstein castle is out of a fairy tale book! The guided tour was also pretty good. I would highly recommend this place as a must visit.
