Owner description: Bus Bavaria Neuschwanstein Castle Tours has been doing day trips to this famous castle especially for English-speaking guests since May of 2000. This listing has only existed since 2011. Over 15 years we have sent off as close to 100% of our guests enthusiastically satisfied with their choice to join us on this excursion as we believe is realistically possible. Nonetheless, we have, as is our custom with our famous bike tour of Munich (Mike's Bike Tours) raised the bar again and improved our tour in several ways for 2015 and beyond. We know when comparing any and all offers for tours to this destination from Munich that one can easily come to the conclusion that we offer superior value. Our tours include a highly enjoyable, (optional) bike ride on well-maintained, comfortable Cruiser bicycles around the area near the castle, our guide's post-lunch PROFESSIONAL magic show (MOST of the time but not on Wed. & Sun. in the peak season) which is FUN and often downright mind-boggling as well as a few other fun activities such as swimming in a refreshing alpine lake in the middle of the bike ride and the unique opportunity to FLY DIRECTLY OVER THE CASTLE on a tandem paraglide! One can also take a fun ride down an alpine slide! Hence, our Neuschwanstein Castle Tours from Munich are quite unique. We hope you will choose to join us on this fantastic excursion from Munich in the near future so that we may have the opportunity to send you, too, off as nothing less than another FAN of our company.

Excellent tour, Brad, Maaike and Flo are really terrific guides. Very attentive and truly make the tour a great experience. Made sure everyone felt comfortable and happy. This is the only way to see Neuschweinstein Castle, so glad I made this reservation after researching other tours on line. We were lucky enough to have a great group of people and the most spectacular weather. Was a little nervous about the length of time but it honestly went by so quickly I didn't notice what time it was. It was a day none of us will ever forget!

This castle was created by King Ludwig II and is breathtaking both in design and view of the countryside. The castle is rich in history and mystery, due to the early death of the King and his psychiatrist in the lake. As far as I know, this is the only castle where the King commissioned paintings of Jesus Christ and the apostles. Awesome.

We had planned the Neuschweinshtein tour a month before our arrival in Munich, mainly because of excellent reviews on tripadvisor. We were lucky to have a wonderful sunny weather that day. Brad and Maaike are the most wonderfull people I have ever met: funny, caring, and always smiling. They will make sure you are well fed, entertained and amused by nature, history and good houmor. Really made our day and the whole stay in Munich. Guys...we would be very glad to welcome you in Macedonia, especially for paragliding and tasting good macedonian beer.

I booked the tour based on TripAdvisor and we are glad we did. From 9A to 8P we had a full-service experience on an easy, enjoyable day that we were able to tailor to our own desires.

Unlike other bus tours during which autocrats with flags on sticks hustle you from point A to point B, you get to design your own day in the hills around Neuschwanstein Castle. The bus arrival and departure times are fixed, as is your (optional and additionally-priced) tour of the castle interior. But in-between...you may go on a 1.5 hour slow bike ride. Or not. You may bike on your own for a good four hours. Or not. You may watch Brad's magic show (and those who did had a great time). Or not. Mike, and his guides (Brad, Maaike and Florian) make it clear that the day is about your entertainment rather than following a set agenda.

We chose to bike longer and leave the group for awhile for a bit more strenuous ride. We brown-bagged our lunch, but were made welcome in the restaurant just the same (and had a lovely beer). Instead of the Alpine slide, we visited the cows (because--hey. Cows. With cowbell. We needed more cowbell.)

We did join the crowd for the hike up to the castle. Our guides took us on a short, but strenuous route because their normal trail has been closed as a result of a rock slide. If you aren't exercising regularly, I do recommend you take the bus for an extra 1.8 euro instead. Between that hike and our extended ride, however, my glutes are now closer to my shoulder blades.

Brad is the showman of the program and quite entertaining. Maaike mothered us well, making sure our bikes got across the road, that we all had our tickets and were where we wanted to be. Florian rode the bus with us, serving drinks, answering questions and making sure everyone was comfortable. We were especially impressed because it was only his first day, but he was as unfailingly pleasant and professional as the rest of the crew.

If you DON'T take this tour, be aware that you may not get into the castle. The 27-minute tours are sold out early in the morning (Brad and Maaike pre-purchase the tickets to ensure the group gets in). We were there on a holiday weekend and the town was packet with tourists from all over Germany--many of whom were sent away at the gate. If you're going to do the castle on your own, plan to purchase your tickets online ahead of time for a higher price.

Perfect pacing, plenty to do and pleasant people taking care of us the whole time. Everything we wanted in a tour.

We stayed in Munich and were considering just taking the train to the castle ourselves but instead decided on this tour. Brad and his girlfriend are great tour guides and there to make sure you have a good time. Once there, you can customize what you want to do (para-glide, bike on your own, skip biking, etc) but we stayed with the main group. When reading the reviews before booking the tour I thought the magic show and alpine slide would be super cheesy, but both were fun! I'm glad we picked this tour and would recommend it in a heart beat to anyone.
