Amir was our guide to Newschwanstein Castle...
, Sep 2021
Amir was our tour guide for the Neuschwanstein Castle tour. He was filled with historical details not found in books or on-line. Very witty comments. Danke, Amir!
Tour guide made it fun...

Tour guide made it fun and interesting. He provided great history of the castle and king, things not on the internet.
A visit to this castle belongs on your bucket list

So we wanted to visit Neuschwantstein, and then suddenly there was corona. The disadvantage was that the number of visitors was strongly limited, and we could only get (overpriced) tickets via Viator. The big advantage: it has probably never been so quiet, and we could take beautiful pictures. Our guide Amir told us all about the castle, and made a fascinating tour of it. The visit to the castle is on a tight schedule, takes only 30 minutes, but is still very impressive.

Great tour

Great tour with a ton of information. Enjoyed the carriage ride down although the walk would not have been bad. Just wish we had had more time!
Awesome experience

We had a very good tour guide by the name of Amir who was very accommodating with his group members who had mobility issues. The only thing I can suggest is for him to slow down a bit and/or wait for his entire group to catch up before he continues walking. He was walking at an extremely fast paced and some in the group were slightly older in age.

Dear Monica, Thank you for your wonderful review and we are happy to hear that you such a good tour. Your suggestion is extremely valuable and we are absolutely thankful to you for it. We wish you a Happy New Year and we hope to see you soon in 2020. Best regards, Amir
Neuschwanstein half day
, Oct 2019
The quide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The castle tour was disappointing. They did not allow for enough time in the rooms to absorb all that was there and understand the character of Ludwig. Could have used about 10 more minutes per room or less people in group to see everything.

Dear valuable customer, We thank you for your review but unfortunately your rating is based on the castle tour which has Nothing to do with our tour. Inside the castle is operating by the castle administration not by us. Please rate only our tour and our service. Thank you for your understanding
A must if you’re going to visit!
, Oct 2019
I’m so glad I decided to go this route. Not only did it make it easier to visit the castle but the tour guide was amazing! He was knowledgeable and engaging! I never once was bored on the tour! If you’re going to visit Neuschwanstein do it with this tour!
Perfect tour of castle

This is the best way to see the castle inside and out, without worrying about the details and tickets. It's a bit out of the way, so you will want to be sure to book in advance.
Disappointing due to overcrowded tour sessions
, Jan 2019
We did lots of Viator tours on our trip, however, this was unfortunately not great. Our tour guide was good, it was more the amount of people they let through for each session. We had to wait a long time for our session time (although we had priority entry) and then so many people went in that we were squished together and any children were really unable to see anything inside much unless they pushed through to the front. This is not necessarily Viator's fault - it was just disappointing as the tour was too quick and so overbooked in numbers per 15 minute session. I have been there in the past and it wasn't like this the last two times (although they were a long time ago). This was the only castle we visited with the kids, so it was really disappointing.
