Our guide, Anna, was excellent. She narrated at appropriate points along the way to keep us interested in what we were about to see. It really added to the experience and brought the story of King Ludwig alive for us. In winter, the Linderhof grounds are covered. We knew this in advance, so be prepared for only an inside tour - which is awesome - but no photos are allowed. The stop in Oberammergau is a tease. The place is quaint and charming. I wished for more time there but understood why we had to move along. Neuschwanstein is really a sight to behold. We are in our 50's and walked up to the bridge for the castle view, then to the castle for the tour (no photos inside this one, either). The walk is steep - as advertised- but not impossible. Crowded shuttles or horse wagon rides are available. Pack a lunch and eat on the bus. Don't waste time there eating. (As an aside, Grayline reserves restaurant seating for the group. Those who took advantage of this said it was quick. I took no chances.) I really wanted to see Neuschwanstein, so this was a highlight for me. We had excellent weather which added to the pleasant experience. The bus was neat and comfortable. Drinks are offered for a fee. Bring euro for the castle admission fees. Be (at least) 15 minutes early as they ask you to be as they are seriously prompt about departure. This trip is a whirlwind. We would have wanted more time, but our trip to Bavaria was limited, so this bus tour was ideal for us. A final note: The unsung hero is always the driver. We had no issues and arrived in complete comfort.
