What people are saying about Munich

Absolutely amazing. My sons (aged 23 and 22) and I booked this tour, and we loved it. We stopped at two beautiful churches, which were so interesting to visit, and made the ride from Munich seem very short. After visiting the breathtaking castle and it’s views, we had a late lunch in a village and we’ had some time to walk around and enjoy the shops. Mario, our guide, was also a joy. If you have the chance, this is a must.

Arnem (tour guide) did a fantastic job adding to the tour due to COVID closures that precluded visits to secondary attractions. For a company like this to make the most out of the situation to accommodate its guests makes it a world class company for any traveler.

Excellent trip. Very informative, friendly and helpful guide. We really enjoyed the day with Mario and getting to see the various sites we would never have seen otherwise. Would definitely recommend as a day trip away from the city.

The guide Armin was extremely knowledgeable. He was very friendly and had a good sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip...the views were outstanding and probably the best I have ever seen

We had the most wonderful daytrip with our super friendly and caring guide! And also it is very comfortable to have trip only with 1 family during these days.
