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!
After departing Linderhof, you will have a short shopping stop in Oberammergau, world-famous for its woodcarvers, richly painted houses (Luftl-paintings) and Passion Play.
On the approach to Neuschwanstein, it will quickly become clear as to why this magnificent neo-Romanesque style castle is the most well known castle in the world. It appears through the mist like something out of a fairytale, and you will not be surprised to hear that the man who conceived its design - King Ludwig II, was considered quite eccentric. If it all seems very familiar, it may be because the castle was the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle.
You will stop in Hohenschwangau, a small town at the feet of the castle, where you'll have 4 hours at disposal for lunch and to explore the grounds of Neuschwanstein. You'll also have the option of joining a guided tour of the interior of the castles if you wish.
What a beautiful place this tour is a must do you have to see it to believe it.
Great trip with a great guide, an older man who was talking very cosy and clear about everything.
Really great tour.Firstly Linderhof Castle is stunning(though sadly not much time to see the grounds).Then a quick stop in beautiful Oberammergau for shopping and a lovely ice cream.Then Neuschwanstein which is magical.Its very busy(especially the bridge) lot of walking involved so have good shoes.
Great tour guide, unfortunate rain all day. Our guide was very helpful and informative. A few people were late at a couple locations getting back on the bus shortening our time in a couple locations. there was not enough time to enjoy Obermagaugh sp?, very short stop of only 45 min, would have liked at least 60 in that little town.
Guide Monica supported the group very well.
Great tour. A fantastic way to see the Bavarian countryside and some amazing castles. Monica our guide was fantastic. It's worth the day.
Ursula, our guide, was excellent, made sure we understood her instructions, very informative for the whole trip. The trip was as described but there was nothing like standing at the base of the and #39;Disney and #39; castle to really appreciate Ludwig and #39;s vision. A sad life perhaps but he left something wonderful.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour. We had a very informative tour guide by the name of Ursula who provided an excellent commentary throughout the day. We enjoyed visiting both castles and also the stop over at Oberammergau. I highly recommend this tour
Fantastic day trip, the Linderhof Palace and Neushwanstein Castle are a must see. The tour is very comfortable, air conditioned coach and you are always kept in the know about the plan for the day and no queuing for tickets, the tour guide collects them in advance and hands them out to us. The tour includes a trip to a lovely village and time for lunch in the beautiful local restaurants. I would recommend this to all my friends going to Munich.
This was the tour that we wanted to take but at the time we booked it was fully booked for the day that we wanted to take it. So we opted for the large group instead. On the date of our tour we were late getting to the pickup point so the larger group had already left. But the small group was still there and they had seats for us no problem. So we paid the additional charge and went on this tour instead. This is the way to go small the guide gets all the tickets and makes all the arrangements so no lines to wait in. Both castles were fantastic and our guide was very knowledgeable. Also hats off to the tour operator accommodating us on such short notice
