I traveled to Munich with three friends and The first thing we did was join the Mike's Bike tour through Munich. It was the perfect way to get aquatinted with the city. We liked the tour so much that on our second day we took a private tour to neuschwanstein Castle through the same company. Siegmund (Ziggy) picked us up from our hotel and treated us to a fabulous day! We started that day off with breakfast in a small German town just outside of the Bavarian Alps. We ate at an outdoor theater that had breath taking views. We then headed to one of of King Ludwig II castles. After exploring for a bit we headed to Castle Neuschwanstein. I can't even explain the beauty we saw you must go see for yourself. Before we headed into the Castle we went Paragliding over the mountain and over the castle. This part was optional and in addition but you will never see the castle and mountains from a better view! I will remeber the views forever! We also had lunch and went on the alpine slide. After we toured the castle Ziggy took us on a path we didn't even know existed to a suspension bridge in the mountains. We then headed down one of the best waterfalls I've seen. We hiked down the mountain along the waterfall and had a blast doing it. We couldn't have had a better tour guide. It felt as though we had known Ziggy forever and he was very knowlegeable and alot of fun. It's definitely worth the money to do the private tour so you can go at your own speed! We had an amazing time and there's no other way to go see the Castle! Don't miss out!

My husband and I have always been leary of guides when traveling, preferring to rent a car and see the countryside on our own. But since we had our young children with us (ages 4, 7 and 9), we decided to go with Mike's to bring us directly to the "Disneyland castles." We ended up getting so much more than just a castle tour ... First, our guide Siegmund was first rate. He was charming, kind and very accomodating ...he even got in the lake and played with my kids which was the highlight of their day. Siegmund took us all over Bavaria ... Garmisch, Linderhof Castle and Neuschwanstein Castle and the surrounding countryside. We biked, swam, ate fabulous pizza, hiked, and toured the castles. It was a wonderful day that I will always cherish. (In fact, it was so great, that we booked Mike's Munich bike tour the next day and loved it too). I would book another tour with Mike's without hesitation. Top notch!

We had "castled and stately homed" ourselves crazy. We just wanted a nice relaxing day in the countryside, and maybe a little bike ride. Hunter picked us up from our Hotel in Munich, and we hit the autobahn. We went to Garmisch- where our teenage son spotted a GAME STOP (we live in Dubai- and he was having withdrawal from the American brand store)- Hunter made sure we saw Garmisch and our boy got to the Game Stop. We went to Linderhof, and had a great day in the sunshine- with lunch, then onto Neuschanstein. We took the bikes to Swan Lake- and had a swim- and really had the best day of entire vacation! THANK YOU HUNTER- he did an outstanding job. We felt like we spent the day with our distant relative- it was awesome! We will come back and tour again! Can't recommend highly enough!

While in Munich, my father and I went on two mike's bike tours: the regular ride through the city and the bike and tour trip to neuschwanstein. Both were amazing! Our guides were Kyle in Munich and brad in Fussen. Both know their stuff but make it fun and entertaining. Kyle uses lots of humor and brad uses magic....seriously really cool magic. My father and I are now hooked on bikes and have been doing tours in others cities in Germany but mike's is simply the best! If you are in Munich, don't leave without a tour!

The day started with only two couples on the tour, which allowed us to be quite flexible and see more than the regular tour. So we left Munich for a visit to Linderhof castle with its terraced gardens. Upon arrival we had time to look at the gift shops and enjoy a wonderful butter pretzel. Next we had plenty of time to enjoy the grounds before leaving for "the back way" to Neuschwanstein.
After passing beautiful mountains, rivers, and a canyon lake we arrived at Neuschwanstein castle . We sat down for lunch with Brad and enjoyed his rugby stories and amazing magic while eating schnitzel and a beer. It was nearly time to go on the tour of the castle so we walked and enjoyed the magnificent scenery of lakes, Hohenschwangau castle, and St. Mary's bridge. The castle tour was very interesting and did not take a long time, but the real surprise was still waiting. We headed back towards St. Mary's Bridge, but took a turn that lead us to the gorge below the bridge. I have to say this is one amazing hike along the river!
At the end of the trail we headed back to towards the car then back to Munich for dinner. Like I said, what a fantastic day of sightseeing, laughing, and learning. Mike was a great guide and knew everything about all of Munich and the castle region. Thanks for a great day!
