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

A great tour
Our guide India was super friendly, knowledgeable, and down to earth. The train ride down was beautiful, the castle was exquisite, and the heavy metal sausage shop in Hohenschwangau is an oddly wonderful place for lunch. I highly recommend this tour.
Nice trip with Dan, worth the time spent in the train
Dan was really great ! Friendly, had a lot of interesting stories all day long, made sure everybody felt included.

The castle and the surrounding area were as beautiful as advertised !
