Both the castle and palace tours were guided by official guides at each location. The guide on the bus was very good and provided interesting information along the way. The first stop, Linderhof palace, was about an half hour visit. The second stop was at a small city for about half an hour. The last stop, the castle, was about 2.5 hours, where we had time to get lunch. The tour of the castle took 30 minutes. Be aware you need to walk uphill on a road for about 30 minutes, and then back down after the tour. The carriage and bus up have long line ups and you will not get up in time for the tour. It then took about two hours to get back to Munich. The bus was new, and full.

Sorry but I forgot tour guide and driver names. Yet, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the places we visited. He talked slow and explained everything in details. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit these two castles. Linderhof maybe small but very neat and organized. You will walk out of the castle and still remember the details of the castle even though it’s camera prohibited. Neuschwanstein, of course, its still very new and magnificent. Love ❤️ it.

This tour was amazing! Great guide with the perfect stops. Definitely would recommend this tour for everyone. One tip would be to bring cash for the tickets to the castles!

fantastic. The interior is as beautiful as exterior. Highly recommended.


View from the window of Neuschwanstein

This is the only look of this lake you see on the tour, because the guide puts heavy pressure for you not to take the bus to the Marien Bridge. It is from the bridge that you see most of the pictures of this castle and the lake.
