I did the Bavarian Highlights Tour and have to say this tour was as special as it was with thanks to our tour guide Peter, he had an exceptional wealth of knowledge and was so welcoming. We visited three castles over the course of the day and because of the small size of our group, Peter treated us to a scenic trip on the border of Austria on the way home. If you have only one day in Fussen or even if you have a few, this tour is a must!

We had a group of seven friends/family on our trip and highly recommend this tour company.

Planning: The planning process was very easy, we planned via email and Astrid was responsive and helpful.

Tour: Mariana and Mirena were wonderful tour guides, both of them knowledgeable and personable. They arrived to our hotel in Munich early for the Castles tours. We only wanted to see Neuschwanstein Castle and they were flexible in adjusting our tour so we could stop and stay longer in Oberammergau. Our friend is handicapped and in a wheelchair and they were very accommodating throughout the day; it's the primary reason we wanted a private tour for a group and both made it a great experience. Beautiful sights and highly recommend! One out our highlights on our two week European vacation!

I was lucky enough to be on this tour several years ago. It was wonderful and perfect. Astrid Baur is the ultimate in customer service and perfection. I went by myself and felt totally at ease. I had my own room at night and had the advantage of being able to hang out with my fellow travelers the rest of the time. I loved that we stayed in the same place each night and the Landhaus Koessel is so charming and comfortable. The owner is lovely and the breakfasts each morning were wonderful. I have no complaints and am contemplating going back for the same tour next Christmas season. Hopefully with one or two daughters in tow.

Our group of 10 friends booked two tours with European Castle Tours to make the most of our 4 days in Fussen. We were not disappointed. A half-day tour to Neuschwanstein with our delightful and informative guide, Mariana, (on a picture-perfect day) was a great introduction to the history and beauty of the area. Two days later we took a full-day tour to Zugspitze, Oberammergau, and Linderhof Palace, all must-see sites. Our guide that day, Peter, was equally impressive with his enthusiasm and knowledge. While this 9-hour tour was well-planned and exactly what was advertised, we appreciated that Peter also personalized it to the needs and interests of our group. Our experiences with European Castle Tours made Fussen one of the highlights of our trip!

Sudden trip to Germany to watch our son in the Mercedes golf tournament. Decided two weeks before to take the castle tour with Astrid and Caroline, What an awesome tour!. Caroline was a wealth of information about all the sites we visited. The scenery was just gorgeous. The hotel in Hopsee was just great. The meals were fantastic!! They were so accommodating in making sure we arrived in Stuttgart on time. Astrid made the train reservations, gave us perfect directions for the train and reserved us at the Pullman Fontana in Stuttgart. While in Stuttgart, we decided to take a one day trip with our son and Astrid gave us great advice on how to do it. I would highly recommend this tour.
