Great trip
, Oct 2020
Great day but we left a book on the bus. Trying to get it back is difficult. I would take it again thank you
Very well organised but could be adapted to be better
, Oct 2020
Cannot fault the tour or our Guide Jacklyn for providing what they stated they would and did so very well. However Linderhof castle was, well, boring. The alpine town where the Passions was, was also just a dull tourist trap with added Jesus statues. The Neuschwanstein castle was the main and by far best bit. I honestly think the tour should just go there and add the cable car and bridge over the waterfall behind the castle. The uphill walk to the castle (and back down) takes about 30 minutes on quality roads but you will be walking so be prepared. Also please note - as the tour company states in advance - you pay extra to enter the castles - The total for both = €27 adult / €6 for kids (Oct 2020) I would avoid Linderhof and to be really honest Neuschwanstein main attraction is its exterior which can be viewed free from the viewing deck at the top of the hill near the castles front door. But €27 to find out yourself is hardly extravagant.

Neuschwanstein Castle
, Sep 2020
Busy day with lots packed in. Monica was a great guide. Despite the weather, it rained most of the time, I was able to see some great sights. I wanted to take photographs of the castle from Mary’s bridge and was able to do so but had to foresaw lunch for an on the go sandwich To ensure I got my place in the bridge queue and made the castle tour at the set time. The walk at the end of the day is quite a trek fortunately I was able to jump in a horse and trap but be careful these guys only leave when all the seats are full!!!
Alpine Delight

Great Trip, fantastic hosts. No issues with the COVID situation, well prepared and social distancing on bus. The Scenery at both locations and whilst travelling around the Bavarian Alps is stunning and we had time to stop for 30 mins at an Alpine Village which was a bonus. The Bonus of current COVID Situation meant that albeit Neuschwanstein was busy apparently it was no where near how busy it would have been under normal circumstances to access to all the viewing points were accessible.
Could have been better

The tour was on time for departures however after the depart everything went downhill. The tour mentioned a stop after the first castle for lunch, but due to time issues, lunch was skipped and so was the village visit. The tour ended 3 hours prior to the estimated time. The tour guide did not give helpful insights for photo locations or the local know hows. I say this because the castle can be seen from a specific bridge for which the queue is very long and instead of whiling away time at a nearby lake one could have done the bridge as you travel 5 hours only for that one view! Tip: From the tour bus drop off point at the Neuschwanstein Castle, take the local bus to the top of the hill. The bus stop is close to a natural path that leads you to this iron bridge, from where you can see the castle in its full glory.

Amazing views and impressive castles
, Aug 2020
Things were a bit delayed in the morning but tbe tour still went mostly as expected. Due to covid-19 the castles were quite empty so it was possible to see a lot and to really enjoy the experience. Our tour guide was always very informative and told us a lot of details about the history of the places we visited.

Great time

We had a lovely time. We were worried the tour maybe too long, but the timings worked out quite nicely.
Great tour
, Aug 2020
The trip was fantastic. The timing leaves you no margin of error if you want to experience the most of it but on the other hand, who would book a trip longer than this one? I was already having second thought about this one because of its length, and I have no regret, every stop where meaningful, enjoyed the whole experience, great couch, great guide. I highly recommend it.
