Good destinations, good schedule, maybe a little too much time designated for souvenir shopping, but well put together. Castles(especially Newschwanstein) are beautiful, but the tours themselves are very short (30 mins each).

Elizabeth was a great guide; she told lots of interesting stories and made sure everyone was clear on departure times and locations, where restrooms were, and how to get to the castles themselves. Daniel was also a great driver. The tour itself was pretty good, and I was pleasantly surprised with how nice Linderhof was inside. I'd sort of been expecting Neuschwanstein to be more impressive than it was, but maybe that's just because the castle wasn't ever properly finished and wasn't furnished or anything. The views of the castle from the outside were amazing, though! The coach was clean and as comfortable as a mach can be, but the tour group was HUGE, and I feel like a smaller tour might've been worth whatever the increase in money would be.

The tour guide should give more time for the tour at neuchwanstien castle. It was too pack given the fact that we had to walk up and down to the castle which took 30-45 mins. Furthermore, given the crowd and time constrain, waiting for the bus and horse ride were near to impossible (furthermore the guide encouraged us to walk). As my mum (who is in her 50's) was Travelling with us, she took longer time to travel down to where the bus has stopped. Hence would appreciate it if the tour guide can give sufficient time or be more understanding as she made a comment which I'm not very pleased with. Her comment was "when is she coming down, we couldn't be all waiting for her" even I have explained to her our difficulties. Other than that the tour is a pleasant one and the tour bus is well maintained and clean.

ITINERARY

Wander through the scenic German countryside on your way to the legendary extravagance of the German castles Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Known for their elaborate construction and world-famous architecture, these two extraordinary structures were dreamed up by Germany’s own Ludwig II, also known as the Swan King. You’ll soon find out why many believe Neuschwanstein inspired Disney’s storybook castles--get ready to feel like you’re living a real-life fairy tale. Hidden in the seclusion of the mountains, German King Ludwig II built two of his dream castles: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Both testify to the vision of Bavaria’s fairytale King.

Departing from Munich, you’ll first visit Linderhof Castle, a French rococo-style castle inspired by Versailles itself and surrounded by immaculately manicured gardens. A quick shopping and photo stop in the charming village Oberammergau will recharge your batteries for the second half of your day. You’ll arrive at idyllic Neuschwanstein Castle around 1:00 p.m, where you’re free to enjoy approximately 4 hours to explore the castle.
