Wonderful day! Hanae was a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable about the history and the sights! It was so nice to buy our tickets on the bus, no lines, no waiting. The bus was comfortable, restroom on board, seatbelts, and drinks for sale on board at a low price! Highly recommend!

A very large your group but it went very smooth. Lots of information, clear times and meeting points, and it was great having direct transportation exactly where I needed to go.

A great trip. Josef was an entertaining guide who kept the guests well informed and also amused with his history of King Ludwig in five acts. Well recommended.

A great day out with trips to castles where I was taken to both and provided with lots of information along the way

This is a highly recommended tour if you are in Munich. Both castles were magnificent. Worthy experience
