Castle tours needed even an extra 30 mins at each location for gift shop purchasing. Could of skipped the little town between the 2 castles since it was so short!

We booked this tour knowing full well that we would not be able to hike up to Neuschwanstein for the included tour. However, we read many reviews that indicated people used the horse drawn carriages. Even though there would still be a 10-15 minute walk after being dropped off, we felt this would be sufficient. So we booked the tour. Unfortunately, we did not make our tour of Neuschwanstein. We went in early August, and it was very, very busy (our tour guide indicated July and August is high season). Our tour guide indicated the line for the horse drawn carriage was long, but three carriages came down right away. Unfortunately this was not the norm, and once we determined we would not make it in time we got out of line. The frustrating part was other people in line were just going up to take a picture. There is no priority for people with disabilities/walking issues or people with tour times, so be aware of this if you cannot do the full hike. There is also a bus option. It also does not take you right up to the castle courtyard, so I am not sure if this would have been a better option for us. The line for the bus was also very long, but they packed a lot of people into each bus. Other than that we enjoyed the tour. Our routing was the opposite as described, but the time in each location was the same. We had a great lunch in town at Schlossbiergarten Bräustürbel, which we wouldn't have had time for if we had made our tour (making lemonade out of lemons). We spent 45 minutes in Oberammergau, which was great. We knew the grotto at Lindehof was closed prior to booking, but at our pace we wouldn't have had time for it anyway. We made the tour at that castle with no problem.
