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!

Absolutely wonderful. A dream come true. A must do from Munich. It was great.
It was a great tour, well worth the money. An early start on a crisp morning, but very relaxing on the coach. The Bavarian countryside was beautiful and our first stop was Linderhof Castle. An optional tour of this castle is very good and worth doing. The surrounding countryside was quite stunning. Next stop was the town of Oberammergau beautiful. We had a reasonable amount of time to take in some sights.
Then onto Schwangau and the Neuschwanstein Castle. It took about 45 minutes to walk up to the castle, but don't worry, you won't be on your own. We didn't do a tour of this castle, just looking from outside it is awesome. Walking to Marienbrücke Queen Mary's Bridge took about another 20 minutes, but the views along the way are fantastic. One of the best views of the castle is from this bridge, but you won't be alone. The crowd was quite orderly and you just have to be patient. It's worth it.
Plenty of places to get food up the hill or down in the village, we had the standard bratwurst in a bun at the top of the hill and then enjoyed a hot drink at Hotel Müller, Then headed back to Munich at 4:30. It was good to be on the coach as it was getting fairly cold outside. Back in Munich about 6:30. Thanks to Elizabeth for her friendliness and professionalism and thanks to Daniel for delivering us back safely. A great day out.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. Bus was comfortable and guide was excellent. Neuschwastein was beautiful. Be prepared to walk a mile up hill to the castle you could take the horse and carriage, but you have to wait in a long line, and you would miss the beauty of the countryside. Long day but well worth it
This was a great tour! The climb up to the castle was work, if you're older I would definitely recommend getting the carriage. The castle in Linderhoff was beautiful and the drive through the mountains was fabulous. I enjoyed our short stop in Ommerammergau as well.
Picture perfect locations, helpful guide, great day
Very convenient, knowledgeable guide, Monica was great! We enjoyed the entire day! Would highly recommend.
Our guide Patricia was the ultimate. Super organized with the times, without running, we could appreciate everything beautiful in this beautiful place.

Fantastic tour! Did the tour on mid of October. It started from Oberammergau, Linderhoft Palace and Neuschwanstein castle. Beautiful view along the way and beautiful castles. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had beautiful memories. I highly recommended this tour.
