Michael BellMiami, FL, United States
Simone hits all the marks, which qualify her as a five-star guide: knowledgable, personal, punctual, friendly, and well-spoken (in multiple languages). In addition, Simone is a safe driver and possesses a delightful sense of humor. Simone superbly fulfilled the tour's agenda and allowed us to personalize the experience according to our interests. I would embark on any tour led by Simone and would also recommend the Neuschwanstein tour she provided us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael, thank you so much for your outstanding, wonderful review! It was such a pleasure to meet you and spend the day with you in the Bavarian countryside. Hope our paths will cross again one day. Wishing you the very best, Simone

Simone drove us through the country to Neuschwanstein in her spacious, clean car. Her driving was smooth and comfortable, and her organisation of our timing was impeccable, even while giving us enough flexibility to make slight changes to the itinerary. We loved her company, and all her recommendations. Would highly recommend her at the drop of a hat. She's great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ee Waun, thank you soo much for your great review. I am so grateful for the wonderful two days spent with you and am looking forward to when our paths will meet again, Simone

George S.Boca Raton, FL, United States
Our second day with Simone was another 6 star day. Driving thru the German countryside on the way to Ettal and then Neuschwanstein with a stop in Oberammergau was outstanding. Simone is the consummate professional - historical knowledge, an immaculately clean car for her guests, and a thorough knowledge of the sites and the area. Her English is excellent and her overarching goal is to provide value to her clients. We were overjoyed with Simone as our guide for 2 days and would strongly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear George, I cannot thank you enough for your great, warm rating. I am overwhelmed! So glad to hear you both had a truely great travel experience here during our time spent together. Thank you and all the best to you and your family, Simone

Jenifer BrownUnited States
My husband and I, with our two 20-something sons, took this all-day tour. Simone is TOP SHELF! She picked us up at our downtown hotel and wisked us away into the countryside. she is an excellent driver and handled the autobahn while getting to know us in an artful way. Her compassion and intelligence were evident. The beginning stops were very interesting, but the show stopper is Neuschwanstein. Simone had fascinating information to share about the castle and Ludwig. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer, thank you soo much for your wonderful rating, this really means a lot to me and I am very grateful. But even more so to have been able to spend a great day with you and your family! Thank you and all the best, Simone
J.b. GoodwinUnited States
We have booked three tours with Simone and could not have been happier with her being our local Bavarian guide. Without her we would not have seen half as much! Being picked up by a private driver/guide not only makes travelling so much easier - it's also more fun. While riding in Simone's comfortable car she answered all our questions, provided us with background information about history, life in Germany and today's political situation. She adapted the pace when needed and also gave us restaurant tips
Simone was a wonderful guide who carried out her role with professionalism. We were impressed with her knowledge of, not only of the tour focus, but 100's of other historical, geographical, local and global facts. We very much enjoyed her company and her friendship. She was on time, her vehicle was well maintained and clean; she herself, presented as well groomed. We were a party if three, Simone did an excellent job and fitted right in with our group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jillian, thank you soo much for your great and kind rating! This is really special, thank you. Wishing you and your group many more memorable moments during your trip. All the best, Simone
Charles MaxwellUnited States
Our day trip with Simone was spectacular! We could not have asked for more. It was a fantastic excursion to Neuschwanstein Castle and Oberammergau. Every moment of the day was filled with picturesque scenery and expert information and knowledge of the history. Simone even recommended a fabulous restaurant at the end of our day trip. We were thrilled with everything and would highly recommend hiring Simone to enhance any excursion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, thank you very much for choosing my tour and your wonderful rating! Great to hear you enjoyed our day together in the Bavarian countryside! Best wishes to you and your family, Simone

Simone was very knowledgable and provided additional commentary beyond the castle's tour guide. Additionally, she found the most delightful little cheese shop for a fabulous lunch. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

David ScottUnited States
We had a great tour of several small Bavarian towns and Neuschwanstein Castle on a dreary, cold & rainy day with Simone! She kept us on schedule perfectly, and her knowledge of various Benedictine churches and the Castle was impressive. She was personable, funny and engaging, and the 10 hour day zipped by. Plus, she took some great photos of my wife and I to make our day even more memorable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Scott, thank you for being such wonderful guests on this cold and wet day. Your interest and kindness just made it the great it was. Wishing you all the best, Simone

Simone was a WONDERFUL tour guide! She is very knowledgeable about Neuschwanstein Castle and it's surrounding area. Our tour was both educational and enjoyable. Simone took us (in her lovely car) to places we would never have known to visit. We would highly recommend Simone to anyone wanting to visit Munich and/or Neuschwanstein Castle. Thanks Simone!

An enjoyable way to visit Neuschwanstein while seeing other iteresting sights, and also having a little flexibility. We were there at a very busy time, but even then it was still fun. Awesome scenery on the drive too. Simone can also recommend other things to do, and places to eat. So ask your questions.
