A Recent Review of this tour

Thomas was a very knowledgeable and courteous guide. He possessed extensive knowledge about Neuschwanstein and Linderhof and gave us insight into King Ludwig Ii's life. We felt like we had a deeper and more personal understanding of Bavaria compared to what we had learned in history books in college. We had a lot of territory to cover, but Thomas drove quickly and safely. We have had other guides that drove very aggressively but we felt very safe with Thomas' driving. He was very polite and thoughtful.
