We had a smooth and fuss free tour to see Ludwig’s Linderhof and Neuschwanstein castle. Our tour guide Elisabeth is a joy and she had great knowledge of the tour and shared some interesting stories with us. She took great care of us during our entire tour. If you happen to be in Munich, take this tour and you will enjoy it.

Fairytale comes alive

A fairytale comes alive at this tour. I could not believe that places like the castles and small alpine villages like that existed outside of cartoons and fairytales. Highly recommend this tour!

Didactic and funny trip

I went alone to the trip to Neuschwanstein Castle and Linderhof Palace. I join to the group in a bus in the center of Munich and then we made a tour thru all those monuments with stops in very traditional Bavarian villages. On all this tour I have to highlight the importance of our guide Paul Riedel that did not let us by a single moment get bored, he was very enthusiastic, funny and with a huge knowledge of history. I really advise this tour to everyone!

This was a wonderfully organized experience, made all the better by the guide, Elisabeth. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, charming, and interesting. The two castles, Linderhof and Neuschwanstein, are absolute must-see attractions in Bavaria and this is a very easy and good way to do exactly that.

Great experience all around
Paula_J

We had a wonderful day with tour guide Elizabeth and driver Thomas. New Covid restrictions were confusing as a traveler, but they handled all with ease. It also meant a super small group for our tour, and the entire day ours was the only bus at our destinations. That, combined with the first snow the night before our tour and nice weather day of, made for a one of a kind experience. Highly recommend.
