Great value to enable us to visit all those spectacular locations on one day, even saving hours of waiting in queues, which would have been most probably impossible to achieve on a private itinerary in high season.

Comfortable bus, good tour guide, on time, got us where we needed to go. (I didn't need the stop in the small touristy town - but many other people were eager to purchase souvenirs)

I took the Gray Line excursion to Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Palace on my 40th birthday and it did not disappoint!! Spectacular views and scenery, wonderful guides, and even though the stops were pretty structured, we still had a lot of freedom to explore. Loved wondering through Oberammergau and taking pictures of the frescoes. Linderhof was amazing and we had time to wander the grounds for a bit. And Neuschwanstein had been a bucket-item list for me for many years, which is why I chose it to visit on this milestone birthday. I knew in advance that the gatehouse had scaffolding on it, but I'm sure not everyone on the bus did, but they did not mention this before we arrived, so I hope no one was disappointed. I was prepared for it so I knew what to expect. Also we skipped lunch (we brought our own food on the bus) and headed over to Hohenschwangau. We did not have time to purchase a ticket to do a guided tour, but you can see a lot of the castle from the outside without buying a ticket. You can walk all over the exterior of it, and you can go in the gift shop, which is sort of built into the castle, so I feel ok in saying that I visited both castles. :) The walk up to Marienbrucke is not an easy one, but VERY well worth it - even if there is a line for the bridge like there was for us - it moves pretty fast. This was a hot day in August that we visited (lower 90s Fahrenheit), but it didn't ruin the experience for us. We had an absolutely fabulous day and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again! We were pretty successful with getting to see both castles, even on a crowded August day, so my biggest piece of advice to anyone considering this tour would be: skip lunch. You can eat in a restaurant anywhere. Enjoy the castles!!

Check in was chaotic but once on the bus, all smooth sailing. Driver was excellent - he spoke clearly and was very informative.Tour guide at Bavarian castle was fantastic.Tour guide in Neuschwantein was terrible-- he was uninterested and the audio system was poor.

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.
