I contacted Astrid to help me organise a fantastic winter wonderland holiday for my family. She organised a day out for us including a castle and snow experience. On the day we met Ruth who took us to Neushwanstein Castle and a chair lift ride to snow. The snow was not cooperative so Ruth spent a lot of time ringing around and found us snow and an open chair lift in nearby Austria. We had a fantastic dream day. Huge thank you to Ruth and Astrid for their help and fantastic professionalism.

Helen,

thank you very much for your feedback.
The snow still is not cooperative and we have to go to Austria all the time to ski:)
But that special excursion was just for you! So happy you enjoyed your day so much.
Thank you for coming, warm greetings from Bavaria, Astrid

We've used Astrid twice now for our Germany vacations. We used her the first time because of the USA Today article recommending her. We used her the second time because she delivered on making the tour completely painless. She takes all of the stress out of logistics, navigation, and translation. All that's left is to sightsee, take pictures, enjoy the fantastic Bavarian food, and shop. We've seen a lot of southern Germany and can't wait to go back a third time, using Astrid again.

The Castle Tour is wonderful! The sight of the Neuschwanstein castle surrounded by fresh snow was spectacular. Both my husband and I enjoyed Carolin, your tour operator. She was accommodating of our needs and helped guide us through a perfect day! No one should miss taking this tour from Munich to visit the Bavarian castles.

Ruth was our tour guide, a lovely lass from Dublin, Ireland who had moved into the area a number of years ago. She was so lovely and helpful, including helping me to work out how I could get to Zugspitze the next day by myself (as they had no tours running). Full of useful information, and the kind of gossipy stories about king Ludwig that you wouldn't get on the regular tour, she's was a delight, we did Oberammergau, and Linderhof as part of the tour, and the combination as well as being driven through some delightful scenery, was worth the money. There isn't a lot to see in Oberammergau, but it was the perfect place to stop for lunch, and Ruth recommended a good Bavarian restaurant to us. We had 6 people in the morning, and then there were only 3 of us in the afternoon, so it was a perfect number to work with. I only booked my tour about a week before, while I was already in Germany, but Astrid was super helpful by email.

I will say that when visiting the castles, there are a lot of stairs within the castle itself, so be aware of that if you have mobility issues.

Thank you very much for your comment - I am happy you enjoyed our scheduled tour with Ruth and that your day was what you had expected - and hopefully little more. Kind regards from Bavaria, Astrid

We are from Canada and found our tour guide very easy to communication in English. Also she taught us several German words.
She clarified the meaning of some of the castle names.
Polite, courteous, and patient.
we found the information given to us prior to the tours was at times more informative than the castle tour guides.
The pace of the day suited our group to perfection!
Highly recommend this tour company and more than likely return to it in the future.
Wonderful value for the cost.
