This was a lovely trip. It opens a completely different vista by transporting one to a magical medieval time as is imagined by Ludwig. Annatte was a great tour guide and informed us of the reality of the spaces (and the importance of punctuality) that kept us firmly rooted in reality despite the dreamy landscape and the castles.

Paul was the be BESt tour guide ever. He was personable and so funny throughout the entire tour. He was also very knowledgeable and provided so much back ground information and even made it a point to answer individual questions. The tour itself is a must see!

Highly recommend this tour. The drive up to the castles was stunning and the castles were gorgeous. Our guide Jaqline was very well informed about the history and also a hilarious guide!

All in all great Experience. The Tour guide on the bus gave clear directions and information. He ensured that we all reached the time slots for the castle tours.

Amazing day. We got lucky with the weather. Experience of the two castles were surreal. Our guide was amazing!
