Just that word does not do this tour justice. Our guide was Jova. Not only was he an amazing story teller, but he was patient (when my group forgot a meeting time) and so much fun. I really recommend this tour!
Although go pee before you get to the tour platform, then there are plenty of restrooms after the 2 hour bus ride to get to the town where the castle is!

Description

We’ll accompany you on the train journey from Munich to Füssen and back, and walk with you uphill to the castle’s lofty perch where it sits gleaming above a spectacular panorama of mountains, lakes and valleys.

Once we arrive, you’ll be taken on a tour of the castle by one of its experienced guides.

It’s not just about the castle, though, but also about its wonderful location. We’ll take you to the best vantage points; we’ll visit the lake (we can take a swim if time and weather permit), admire postcard-perfect views of the equally beautiful Hohenschwangau Castle, see the waterfall gorge and enjoy stunning views from the Marienbrücke bridge suspended above it all.

To visit the Neuschwanstein Castle is to step inside a fairy tale.

Please note that the trip involves an uphill walk of approximately 20 minutes. If you prefer not to walk uphill, you can take a horse-drawn carriage or a bus, though some walking will still be necessary. The availability of these options can also be limited at particularly busy times.

Transportation :
Jan - April : Train
May - Oct + Dec : Private Coach
Nov : Train

PLEASE BE AT THE MEETING POINT 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE SCHEDULED DEPARTURE TIME.

Neuschwantein Day Trip
It was a fabulous day trip and we were left wanting for more time. Our guide Dani was very informative and caring person. She had so many stories to tell and even though it started raining at the end, she completed her story before we got in. Loved this outing and special shout out for Dani for a fab trip

Day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle with the wonderful Dani
Booked this day tour by chance on Saturday morning and we were off on the train within half an hour! Dani was the best tour guide ever - a great balance of knowledge, experience and humour making our day extra enjoyable at such a beautiful place. Everything was organised so well, leaving us feeling relaxed with enough time to explore by ourselves and as a group. Good value too!

Radius makes it easy
The Neuschwanwtein castle tour was a wonderful experience. Yes, it's a long way to go from Munich, but our guide Petra made it worth our while. She was informative and she made sure that we didn't have to do anything except tell time. Everything ran like clockwork, easy, and her friendliness was lovely. Thank you Petra, Maureen ( from Toronto)

Discover Munich Introductory Tour
We enjoyed the tour and the guide Joyel. I would recommend it storngly at the beginning of the stay. We did take a "Third Reich and Hitler tour" the day before so it was nice to get the more cosy version as a tourist as well. Lots of nice stories, tips for shops and restaurants and sightseeing for the rest of our stay. We did not have the time for Scloss Neuschwanstein, which we would have loved to take. So we have to come back at another occasion.
Great day trip!
This was a great day trip and we were able to see the highlights of Salzburg. As our time was limited, it was nice to leave the navigation to someone else and experience the city without the hassles of planning it all and navigating by ourselves. That saved us time and allowed us to appreciate the city. I would recommend this trip to others who want a quick day trip to see the city.
Great day trip
Iain was a great tour guide and extremely knowledgeable.
