Great trip, beautiful castles
Alina_K

From the start of the trip till the end, we all were given clear information of the itenerary, tickets for castle tour bought from Jackie, so no worries at all to queue for the tickets. No obligation if you just want to enjoy the sceneries like us. We enjoyed our own time walking and doing our own thing.

Paul was absolutely amazing and completely made our trip. The combination of knowledge and humour he provides is brilliant. We learnt so much about the history of Bavaria along with the castles and laughed the whole way. We would definitely recommend this trip, one we won’t forget for a while!

A excellent Long day. Think ahead and take lunch.

Excellent tour. Excellent guide who was a local and who’s comments throughout the trip added colour to the Ludwig story. I’d recommend to maximise your time you take along lunches and drinks with you as time is limited at linderhof if you have the tour. So don’t faff about. Get to the tour and after or prior depends on your time slot can get some great pictures of the garden and the water feature in the middle. Same goes for neuschwanstrein I’d skip stopping somewhere for lunch eat what you have and get a ice cream or cold drink as you will waste plenty of time waiting for food as it will be busy. There is a lovely lake you can explore and even go in if you like. Can also hire a boat (pedal and rowing types) for half hour cheaply. Allow plenty of time to get to the castle bus is fine they cram you in and then go straight to viewing point. Will be a big que but it’s worth it but keep Eye on times. Only saying these things and is my second visit on this tour and I’ve learnt from the first time. The countryside along the trip is stunning so don’t be like many on our coach and sleep as some the scenery is the best part at times.

For castle fanatics only! Otherwise it's a mediocre experience
Amiram_H
, Aug 2022
The tour guide, bless him, had a thick foreign accent and was a bit hard to understand, above 4 hours of the tour is spent on the bus, the tours that are given at the castle felt too brief to me with very big groups and was hard to find time for asking questions, all the castle tours were absolutely packed with other visitors and it hindered the experience. The castles are beautiful and the history of them has a lot to offer, but was it worth it? No

Foreign accent? Your review is more than political inacceptable. You booked a bus-tour, what you expected?

The trip was on time and very smooth, very beautiful landscapes on the way to both palace and castle. A little rush in the side, wish we could have stayed bit longer. Our tour guide Hanae was very helpful.

Thank you for taking your time to write this reviews. I understand your view, but such famous places require a very controlled time schedule. If not just some few would see this wonderful castle.

Jo_K
, Jul 2022
Would recommend going to both locations as well worth seeing with stunning views, however, take a different tour operator than Grayline as they rush you at both locations and poorly organised on the day having to wait for tour guide to purchase tickets then tell us the incorrect time for the castle viewing. Could have spent another hour or so at the smaller castle instead of stopping at a pointless souvenir shop when driving to the second location.

I'm sorry you experienced that. I'll try to solve it. Please contact me through Viator.

Too little time inside
Rebecca_P
, Jul 2022
Both of the castles were spectacular, and pictures don't give you adequate perspective so they absolutely are worth seeing, but the time allotted for the tours was way too short: only 30 min inside each castle! And no photos allowed, so you have to buy these crummy little overpriced books full of pictures that are generally of lower quality than what any decent cell phone made in the last 5 years can take. To be clear, I place the blame primarily on the castle operators, not the day tour operators. The worst thing I can say about the tour guide was that he felt the need to be talking for the whole length of every bus ride, so he rambled and repeated himself ad nauseam, even spending the last 15-20 min of the tour recapping the entire trip complete with his previous repetitions. Dude, it's OK to just be quiet and let people digest the experience. The castle owners need to allow at least an hour per tour, and hardly anybody takes flash photos anymore with cellphones able to compensate internally, so there's no longer any legit reason to ban photos, only flash.

It seems that you posted your review on the wrong place. We are responsible for driving you, but a review about the castle belongs to the castle and not here. You also miss, that fotos are not allowed because people copy things. We just respect our cultural treasures and would be great if all visitors do the same. Please replace your review there where you actually want and not here. Ok?

What a wonderful trip. Moderate amount of walking and lots of hills. For a fee, there is a bus available up to the castle (or horse and buggy). It's a hard walk for elderly or out of shape. Castle has stairs to climb, but grounds are available.
