It was so convenient to get on a bus and get to see these amazing sites! Our bus's tour guide & driver were excellent. The guides at the palace & castle were not great and seemed to speed through the tours, but that was out of the control of Gray Line GetYourGuide tour company. It would be so great if there were more accessible tours for handicapped individual.

Tour partito e tornato in perfetto orario, la guida molto gentile e sorridente, molto disponibile nello spiegare anche in diverse lingue. Posti meravigliosi, il paesaggio è da fiaba e così i castelli, sia all’interno che all’esterno. Unico puntò deludente, il tour interno del castello di Neuschwanstein (organizzato dalla direzione del castello stesso): ci hanno dato un’audioguida e una persona a dirigerci, che ci ha messo abbastanza fretta e non ci ha dato la possibilità di fermarci ed esplorare. Non ha senso fare un tour audioguidato, se non si ha la libertà di prendersi il proprio tempo.

The GetYourGuide team was excellent and the activity was well planned and executed. No complaint, 5 stars for GetYourGuide. However, the castle tours are done by the castle operators. This is apparently unavoidable and these guides were frankly bad. First, I had to fight for 10 minutes at the Linderhof ticket office. My Canadian vaccine passport wouldn't show what vaccines I got and the overzealous agent wouldn't accept it. Had no such problem at the hotel, Dachau and Neuschwanstein. Secondly, the guide at the castle was so unpleasant (grumpy) that 2 of the guests preferred to leave the tour. As for Neuschwanstein, although the guide was pleasant, she was speaking so unnecessarily quietly that I couldn't hear a thing. I also found the Neuschwanstein tour to be way too fast (around 20 minutes) and I feel like there was so much more to be seen. Again, this is, I believe, out of the control of GetYourGuide and the treatment all guests at these castles receive.
