My several communications with Mario started 2 months before the tour. All correspondence was answered within 24 hours by virtue of the 6 hour time difference. As my booking was for 2 persons, Mario put us on stand-by as he organizes tours for 4 to 8 persons. About 3 weeks prior to the tour date, Mario informed that we can be accommodated as there were other participants on the selected date.

Pick-up from our hotel was on time in Mario’s clean and comfortable Ford minivan and the tour started with visits to 2 beautiful churches in Rottenbuch and Wieskirch. On arrival in Neuschwanstein, Mario bought castle tickets for us and stood in-line in the light drizzle to purchase bus tickets and saw us off. He even had time to give his piece of mind to queue jumpers rushing for the bus. Mario did not accompany us up to the castle as the castle tour was conducted by castle officials.

Although I’ve read poor reviews regarding the castle tour as being rushed and not much to see, I found it to be quite interesting probably this being the first time for me. But the highlight of the tour is being at the Marienbrucke taking photos of ourselves with the castle in the background. Even the short walk from the bus drop-off point to the bridge through the woods was picturesque.

On the way back after the tour, Mario stopped at the foothill for us to take more photos. A late lunch at about 3, was at an organic cheese farm on the way back to Munich. We did not join the rest as be brought our packed lunch with us. We safely returned to our hotel at about 6 in the evening.

Book through Pure Bavaria Tours if you want small group hassle free and personal service of Neuschwanstein castle tour.

Why book Pure Bavaria Tours:
a. Super-convenient: pick-up/drop-off from hotel
b. Super-fun: castle is beautiful, but small towns en-route are an added bonus
c. Super-Mario: best tour-guide ever!

We made the reservation by e-mail through the website (http://www.pure-bavaria-tours.de/) for the Neuschwanstein Castle Daytour and everything was perfect. Mario was our tour guide and he is a very nice person! Picked us up at the hotel at the appointed time (we were the first couple), then we get to the others and continued our journey. It is really worthwhile because it is a small group, maximum 8 people which is not that rush thing. Mario goes through amazing places along the way to the castle. On the way back we stopped at a farm that produces cheese, simply PHENOMENAL. It was very worthwhile !!!

The best part of our trip to Munich was taking this day tour out to Neuschwanstein Castle. Andy was an amazing tour guide who was very informative. The castle is amazing and the cheese farm that we stopped at afterwards was great. The price is great and the tour well worth it.

What a fantastic tour and an even better tour guide - Mario. We booked the private Neuschwanstein Castle Private Tour (6 adults) and it was by far the best tour any of us have even done. Mario was a fantastic guide and was able to show us so much of the beautiful Bavarian countryside, including stopping by a small farming town and taking in some amazing churches. We even got to stop at cheese factory and we sampled and purchased some delicious cheeses. Mario was very entertaining and could also inform us about so much interesting history relating to Munich and Germany. He is very kind and knowledgeable and we hope to return to Bavaria one day and see Mario again.
