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.

My husband and I considered driving ourselves to Neuschwanstein, as we had a car rental. I am SO glad we didn't! The gang at Bus Bavaria made the trip so wonderful, beginning with the videos on the bus.

Once reaching the area near Neuschwanstein, we met Brad and Micah. Brad is an especially entertaining and informative tour guide. The actual tour inside Neuschwanstein was brief and lacking in information/entertainment value, as Brad warned us. I was so happy to have the "inside scoop" from our guides beforehand. I think I would have been very disappointed, had I not done the tour with Bus Bavaria.

The bike tour beforehand was simply stunning. I got the best pictures from the whole vacation during that time. There was plenty of time to stop and enjoy the scenery, and the guides were happy to take as many pictures as we wanted. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable ride.

We opted to do the "hike" instead of taking the bus to the castle. In hindsight, I would have ridden the bus. I was not feeling my best, and it was much tougher than I expected. You don't miss out on anything and it only costs 2 euros, so if in doubt, take the bus!

This tour was my favorite part of a 10 day trip to Germany and Austria. I give it the highest recommendation!

The day trip to Neuschwanstein with Bus Bavaria was fabulous! Brad, Miccah & Natalia went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. Both of my kids (ages 7 & 10) loved this tour and wouldn't hesitate to do it again in the future. This was my third tour with this organization (first time was in 2001) and hopefully not the last!

I booked per Phone the Trip with the Mike`s Bus Bavaria Adventure tour to Neuschwanstein Castle.

We drove by a very nice bus 2 Hours to Hohenschwangau. Than we met our Tourguides Brad and Meike. We had the choice to visit the castel Hohenschwangau or take a bike trip to the swan lake. Most of us, took the Chance to go by bike. We had many fotostopps to take some pics from the castles and the beautiful nature. We made a stop at the swanlake where we could jump into the fresh water. It was a very sunny day. And a great refreshing swim.
After the bike tour we had a very nice lunch at a brewery with typical german food, like Schnitzel, Haxe and Käsespätzle like mac and cheese, and for sure fresh german beer.
We ordered in the bus already, so we didn't have to wait for it.
After the lunch we went to the caste.
You could go by bus ( 2 euros ) oder walk up the hill.
I did the last, and it was nice, but hard.
First we could have a chance to take pictures from Marys Bridge and after this highlight we went to the castle ( 15 euros ), no waiting because of the good organization.
The tour was nearly 30 min and very fast. What was a little bit sad. very nice to see, the rooms which are open, because the caste was and will not be finished.
After the walk down we got to the bus and went back to munich.

The whole trip was very good, a very good Price and the guides are very friendly and funny. Its a full Day trip started at 9:00 and finished at 19:30. Totally Worth it!

Incredible tour and best way to view Neuschwanstein! Best way to see multiple views of the castle, enjoy additional commentary, and have a beautiful bike ride around the grounds. If you just go to the castle and skip this experience, you are missing out! You gain so much additional knowledge we would have never known, made friends we didn't expect, and thoroughly enjoyed the entire day! My travel partner was apprehensive on doing a tour but was so grateful we did. Later in the week, we were in Amsterdam, had a day to do a tour, and immediately Googled "Mike's Bike Tours" to see if there was one available in that city. Thankfully there was!! And again, we weren't disappointed. Loved this tour and recommend this company to EVERYONE that is traveling overseas!

There are many different Neuschwanstein tours through various companies, and I am so glad we chose this one! Natalia was friendly and competent during check-in in Munich, and told us a little about the areas and sights of Munich on our way out of town. The scenery en route was lovely, and water, soda, and beer were available for purchase on the bus. Upon arrival in Schwangau we were greeted by Brad and Miike who guided us to restrooms before setting us up with bikes and offering sunscreen for the ride to a lovely lake. there were views of Neuschwanstein throughout the ride which was flat and easy. The lake was clean and clear and warm enough for swimming and wading. Guide Brad was a font of information about the history and geography of the area. He, like Miike and Natalia, was enthusiastic about the tour and had a great sense of humor, making it really fun. On the bus ride we had pre-ordered our brewery lunch from a menu, so that it was ready at the restaurant after we stored the bikes. The brewery/restaurant had several types of their beer on tap which enhanced an already delicious lunch. Service was fantastic and we were given as many carafes of water to drink with lunch as we desired - an uncommon touch which was pre-arranged by Bus Bavaria. While we settled our tabs before heading to the castle, Brad entertained us with card tricks. He let us in on the "tricks" and made us laugh a lot in the process. Throughout the day, the temperament and "vibe" of the guides created a congenial feel among the tour participants. After lunch, the bus took us up to a drop-off point from which we hiked up to Neuschwanstein - a steep, but lovely hike through the forest. First stop was Mary's Bridge which afforded spectacular views of the castle, then we proceeded to the castle to arrive at the precise time of our group tour. Our guides positioned themselves along the way to make sure no one got lost or separated from the group. The tour through the castle was great, made especially fun by the "unofficial" historical information Brad had shared with us prior to going in. After the tour, we had time to purchase souvenirs, get a cold drink or ice cream, and use the restroom prior to getting on the bus for the trip home. The enthusiasm of the Bus Bavaria guides, and the variety (bus, bikes, lunch, hike, tour) kept the day fresh and fun while visiting this marvelous castle!
