Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

It's fascinating to learn about eccentric King Ludwig II, who built the two grandiose castles on this tour. You get plenty of time at both to appreciate his vision. And the short stop at Oberammergau, home of the famous Passion Play, is a nice bonus!

Had a wonderful time on this tour. We left on time from every stop. We had enough time to souvenir shop, have a quick bite to eat and take photos. Bus slowed down so we could take photos of a very clear river and painted houses along the way. Great tour everyone should see the castles at least once!

Tour guide Christine was awesome and very friendly. The tour bus driver did an excellent job as well. Lots of cool and unique history given while traveling to all stops. Loved the Linderhof castle tour. My wife and I both did not enjoy the Neuschwanstein castle tour however. All in all a great.

Our guide was very knowledgeable not only on the story of King Ludwig, but also into the history of the towns passed/visited. Her enthusiasm for King Ludwig really brought his story and that of his castles to life! The castles themselves were beautiful, although a bit more time to explore the grounds of Linderhof would have been good. The short visit into Oberammergau was also a highlight- a very cute little town which again we would've loved to have spent more time in. Understandably though it was a long day with a lot to cover so with that in mind, the times allocated were reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend

This tour was amazing!!! best part of visiting Munich. Maximus was a great guide and gave us such good insight into munich. The little town we stopped at on our way between Linderhof and Neuschwanstein was so awesome! I also highly recommend to any one to purchase most of your souvenirs here because you won't find a better price!!

We walked up the mountain to the castle, it was a tiring walk but well worth it once we made it to the top! Don't forget to walk to the bridge so that you can see the perfect view!

Don't miss this tour!!

The tour was very comfortable and well timed. We got the right amount of time spent at each one of our stop overs so we were never rushed. Lunch was well coordinated too so that was a plus. This is a tour I recommend.
