Many visitors to Munich consider going on a Neuschwanstein castle tour offered by train or to go there on their own by train. These options are somewhat less expensive, yet offer an experience FAR inferior to that of our Neuschwanstein castle tour by luxury coach with our expert and lovable guide, Brad Daynes.
When weighing the option of going to Neuschwanstein castle from Munich by train, either alone or with a tour company, we suggest considering the following factors:
The total travel time by train is at least 5 hours, including the necessary bus from Füssen to Hohenschwangau where the castle is. The train does not have air conditioning, often has more passengers than seats available and it is not possible to reserve seating. Upon arrival in the town of Füssen, everyone on the train gets crowded into one bus, like sardines into a can, which can be quite undignified, to say the least. Finally, in Hohenschwangau, lines to purchase tickets for the Neuschwanstein castle tour can sometimes be up to 2 hours in length, with the average time being about an hour.
A day of your vacation is of tremendous value and you deserve to enjoy every one of them to the fullest! Disappointment and stress are the last things anyone wants, especially when on vacation!
It is our goal to make your day trip to Neuschwanstein with us THE best of your entire trip and we GUARANTEE that you will agree that the extra investment for our Neuschwanstein castle tour is worth far more than how much more it costs over any other option offered from Munich, and this includes most especially Neuschwanstein castle tours that use the train for transportation as their tours cost almost as much as ours by luxury coach do and don’t include discounted tickets into the castle (1 Euro savings with us), a guided bike tour, the entertainment value that our fantastic guide (Professional Magician) Brad does, nor the opportunity to use the Alpine slide for only 1.70 Euro, nor the opportunity to FLY directly over the castle on a tandem paraglide adventure nobody EVER forgets!
But please, by all means, don't just take our word for it. Please have a look at the 156 since May, 2011 and increasing (almost daily) number of 5-Star reviews at our listing for this outstanding excursion to Neuschwanstein castle from Munich at Tripadvisor.com
For more information regarding this subject you may want to read Mike's Management Response to the (only 2-Star review to date, July 2012) titled "Nothing Special" from June 30th, 2012 at the link above or here on the right, under our listing for Bus Bavaria at Tripadvisor.com
Regarding that guest's review, she had been on THE most logistically challenging day in our 13 years of offering this tour, and it was also previous to a major improvement we just recently (July, 2012) implemented which gets the bus on the road 15 minutes sooner than her and most previous groups have experienced with us.
Thank you for your interest!
We hope to be sending you off convinced that your choice to join us was an excellent one!
