This day was number one for us. Our tour guide Christine was fantastic giving us all the necessary information and managing tour tickets well. We arrived at the meeting point 30 minutes early and due to many tours going that day once a bus was full they left. Our bus driver was great.
The inside castle tours were not included in the price so bring some cash if you wish to do them. 25 pp Both castles are well worth it but also require lots of walking and stairs. Some people on our tour chose not to take the tours but still enjoyed viewing the castles.
Our first stop was Linderhof castle and we were given time before our tour to look around the garden. A 40minute stop at Oberammergau for a quick. Look around and the chance to buy a snack for us really wasnt long enough but we understand to fit it all in this is all the time allowed. The highlight is Neuschwanstein castle which really is a fairytale castle. We had time to look around and get ourselves to the top ready for our tour. We took the shuttle bus to the top to make it a bit easier as it is very steep. The shuttle bus drivers cram them into the buses and dont drive overly carefully..... the view from the bridge of the castle is worth seeing but often there is a big line up to do so so do it as soon as you get off the shuttle bus.
The tours inside the castles were fascinating and worth doing if you can.
On the way back to Munich we all sat back and relaxed after a busy 10hours day.

This tour was great! A full day of seeing castles and beautiful landscapes! This was a great way to see some of Ludwig's famous structures without having to worry about waiting in line for tickets or the transportation to get there!

Stunning castle. Nice coach ride stopping in a few locations for wandering/exploring. The castle was fantastic and a nice hike up to it for the fitter people or horse drawn carriage for the rest. Only downside was the weather but what can you do. Recommended

This tour far exceeded our expectations. Comfortable coach ride. Beautiful scenery along the way. A huge bonus was the snow which made the day even more magical. And two absolutely stunning Castles to explore. Loved it.

My husband and I loved, loved this trip. We are in our early forties and we are active people- let me tell you that you need to believe people when they say there is a steep walk! So worth it! Also- we went inside the castle and I would highly recommend doing that. I mean, do you want to walk all that way up the hill and not even go inside!!!

Fantastic! A must do

Loved this tour! It was great, the guide wasn't that great. Both castles offer guided tours from their own staff so you're paying for the transportation cost basically. This and convenience alone was totally worth it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

Amazing! I can went to 2 famous great Castles and enough time to enjoy a cup of coffee and a apple strudel at Oberammergau .
Highly recommended !
