We just took the tour to Neuschwanstein Castle.
It was wonderful. The weather was raining and misty but I thought that added to the magic. Charlie, our guide, talked just the right amount of time - giving us space to take in the scenery in peace but still giving us plenty of history of the castle and King Ludwig. Charlie's tip to try the Munich "Donuts" on the walk up was much appreciated. They were delicious. Also his tip to walk to the lake at the end of the village was perfect - a beautiful spot. He also helped us find a great Indian restaurant at the end of the tour. Amazing guide!!
The tour inside the castle was too fast and the guide was not as interesting but there is nothing you can do about that - it is separately run by the state and not this tour company.
Please be aware that there is a LOT of walking. A 20-25 minute walk up to the castle, a 10 minute walk to the bridge to see the view of the castle, all
fairly steep. Then all that again heading downhill. Bring tennis shoes or hiking boots.
