My family and I recently spent 14 days in Europe, visiting five different cities, and Munich, but more specifically, THIS TOUR, was the ultimate highlight. Our tour guide was Mario, and he had this tour down to a science! We were given plenty of time to eat and shop and take photos. Mario even took us to a special place along the route to get fantastic family photos with the castle in the background. We have some AMAZING memories of Bavaria, now, thanks to Mario and this perfect tour! Take it. You won't be sorry.
