What people are saying about Oberammergau
We really enjoyed the tour- the background information from the tour guide, organized tickets and tours. It was a very tight schedule- not sure if the stop in Oberammergau was value added- unless you love 30 minute speed shopping. The drive through the town was still interesting so I wouldn't suggest cutting it out... The time could have been better appreciated at the Neuschwanstein castle. We had to run down the hill to make the return trip :) But overall, a trip to the Neuschwanstein castle is a must. Stunning to take it all in!
Pros: - Comfortable bus seats with air-conditioning - Doing this is probably easier than taking the train by yourself - The guide was very helpful & kind Cons: - We started almost an hour late. Probably does not happen all the time but still. - Logistics for tickets hand in is very time consuming. This can definitely improve. - You feel somewhat forced to get the entrance tickets. I thought I could decide which one to go in, but they right away tell you to pay for it on your way there.
The bus ride was relaxing, while we had just enough time and Linderhof followed by enough time at Neuschwanstein. The gave us enough time to relax, do the tour(s) and have something to eat. If you are fit, you can half the time theu suggest of walking up to the castle. The guide (in this case Laura), was very friendly and informative.
Loved the two castles of Ludwig II. Really fascinating insights provided by the guide and beautiful countryside. Tour could perhaps skip Oberammergau and spend more time at the two castles. Hanni was a brilliant tour guide, very funny and knowledgable. Five stars!
Very good tour. Punctual, spacious bus, knowledgeable guide (Suzanne). Best way to see both castles will seeing some countryside of Bavaria. Was able to see things I would not have been otherwise capable of seeing since I was not going to rent a car.
