“10/10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

We travel in many countries and visited as many castles (Berlin, Praha, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava, Salzbourg)... but the best visit we had was really with the Historical Walk at Neuwanstein Castle.

Small groups, a lot of information and magnificent panoramas.

Our guide, Ieuan, was very good and really took the time to answer all our questions (and we had a lot...).

A must see!!

“Beautiful, Amazing, Educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

I knew nothing of the castles of Shwangau before I went on this tour but now I am so glad I went. The guides are so much fun to talk with and bring you around to see the best parts of the area. The castles are amazing themselves but the picturesque views from the bridge, and the waterfalls below are just stunning sites. Definitely go on this tour you will not regret it :)

“A must do when in Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2011

This tour is a great way to see the beautiful castles and surrounding areas. The guides are great and easy going, and the tour is really well paced. No rush. They organise everything. The guides are very knowledgable about the area and its history and are happy to answer any question they can. Even some off topic questions. The group was small which made for a great personal experience. The guide even took us out of his own time to a great restaurant he recommended with local cuisine after the tour was finished. They are extremely friendly and approachable. If you are thinking about taking a tour around the castles this tour will save you the lines and hassles of organisation and its at a very affordable price.

“Good day out to the castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011

We did this tour back in September 2010 and had a fantastic day out to the castle with Josep who was very entertaining and full of knowledge. We came across Historical Walks at Munich Central Station and decided to go with them as they were the cheapest.... we were glad we did! The tour was well organised and the history of the Bavaria was well explained to us. There were trackworks on the train and they even arranged a bus for us to get to the castle. The castle and the Bavarian countryside was absolutely beautiful and well worth the visit!

“Excellent Value, well paced trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2010

We went on this company's tour of Neuschwanstein Castle. At 30 Euros it was excellent value for money. Our guide, Jeff, was very informative and told us the life story of King Ludwig in little chapters all through the day. From Ludwig's parents history as we boarded the train to his suspicious death on the way home. You could see other groups listening in as it appears their guides were not as interesting. The walk up to the castle is a mile up a steep hill but Jeff paced it well and had a couple of stops so everyone could catch their breath and he told another chapter of the story. It made the climb comfortable and was easy enough for my 73 year old mother to complete. Highly recommended.
