Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. He had the perfect mix of talking and allowing us to just enjoy the views on our trip to the castle. He made plenty of stops to allow us to use the restroom, grab drinks, and stretch our legs. His instructions were clear and he was very helpful with any questions. Really enjoyed this tour.

Great day experiencing the castles of Bavaria. We had a great tour guide, called Elisabeth, and a great group who were punctual and also enjoyed the tour. An easy tour to take the stress out of organising the big day trip and plenty of time at the castle to explore.

Great tour guide, very well organized! Would appreciate a detailed itinerary beforehand with number of "free time," also a direct line to contact the tour guide to ask any questions before the tour started would be nice

It was a amazing experience, It worth a lot to see the castles and the role trip. I Just think It don't worth go inside the castles because there is no much to see. But the whole trip was Very Nice.

An organized and memorable trip to Linderhof & Neuschwanstein castles. Comfortable travel, beautiful architecture, and interesting history. Highly recommend!
