We had a great time on this trip. Everything is taken care off and we were able to enjoy both castles. And before arriving to each destination, some history or background of each castle were narrated to us, its so interesting especially for me that I am new here in Germany.

It was a lovely experience which enabled us to visit places in one day with plenty of time to explore on our own as well. The guide was very sweet and detailed everything about the visited landmarks. I highly recommend this tour !

The trip is amazing and our guide offered sufficient information about the castles and all Bavarian culture.

Very smooth experience, excellent guide named Marcus. Marvelous locations.

Everything about the tour was excellent. specially the tour guide.
