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

Neuchweinstein tour is a must do!
Aidan was a fantastic guide! He did a great job telling us the history that was informative but also entertaining. The castle is beautiful inside and out. Aidan definitely made this an even more enjoyable experience.

Neuschwanstein with Austin
Absolutely pouring rain and for the entire tour, but Austin was upbeat and knowledgeable and totally made the trip just amazing. I had visited here before on my own, but his storytelling about the whole Ludwig history made this visit so much better! And not having to walk up the hill was so nice. The tour was worth every penny, thanks for a great rainy tour Austin, you gave us a wonderful day!

Excellent tour of Neuschwanstein with Jake!
Last week, my children (both 10) and I travelled to Neuschwanstein Castle for a day trip with Jake. We had a wonderful day. Jake did a terrific job storytelling as a means of navigating us through the history of Ludwig II's life and family. He interacted with the kids and involved them appropriately. It's a very long day for travelers, even seasoned travelers, and having a guide who paced everything so well was a tremendous benefit to the overall appreciation of the castle, the man behind it and the incredible setting. I highly recommend Jake.

Could have been a LOT better
Our guide didn't seem that interested in the tour himself.

A trip to remember
This trip was awesome!! Ian was brilliant. Once we got on the train he told us the entire history of Salzburg (without reading of a paper), answered any questions we had saved us time doing it on the train vs. after we got to Salzburg. He then gave us all maps of the city and walked us through every dot on the map in detail so if there was something we wanted to do in our free time it was efficient to figure it out instead of wander around confused. Then he came around and asked what each of us were interested in and helped us decide where we needed to go. Super helpful! The day in Salzburg was beautiful and full of history. Ian did indeed save us so much time so we could fully utilize our 3 hours alone. He made sure to engage with all 32 of us at least once and was knowledgeable and made the tour a ton of fun!
Nice informative tour
Great tour
Iain was a wonderful tour guide with great knowledge about Munich and a nice sense of humor.
Richard was a wonderful guide
Richard was a wonderful guide. He is passionate about World War II and all its political and economic aspects. He's a great communicator and will make your tour an unforgettable experience.
Great tour to discover the city of Munich
My son and I really enjoyed our tour.
