This island tour is amazing! You have to see it and the neighboring island. Kevin was actually our tour guide for the castle, translating German to English to save us time. The ferry boat was a relaxing, fun ride, and the walk in the woods to the castle was simply beautiful. He went out of his way to first take us back to Oberammergau and then to the island, accommodating our wish list! Book him or Bridget, both 5 star tour guides!
