I will be in Munich in June and we are planning a day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 1 - 16year old and 1 senior (65 yr old). We are looking at the options for tour companies and was wanting to hear from others on their experience. Options:
- Bus tour company - Looks like the 2 main operators or Mikes Bike tours and Grayline. Mike's has a bike ride and a hike in the tour. May be a little concern for the 65 yr old in our group. I know she can opt for the other castle in lieu of the bike. With Mike's you only see one castle (2 if you opt out of the bike ride). The other is grayline which goes to Neusch. and Linderhof and Oberammergau. However, the reviews on Grayline are pretty bad and seem like a speed tour which is ok if you get to see a lot
- Train, one tour group takes you on the train but I think you only see Neusch.
- Do we rent a car for the day and do Neusch., Linderhof and Oberammergau on our own.
We are pretty active and are very good with GPS for directions. We are a up at dawn and stay up late type of group.
I would really like everyones thoughts and experience with these tours.
Thank you in advance,
