This tour was fantastic! We spent two days with Kevin, visiting Neuschwanstein as well as Berchtesgaden. Kevin is a wonderful guide who knows so much about the history here, and he was a lot of fun to spend time with. He also saved us a lot of time and effort with navigating the crowds and finding our way around; it was so easy. Thank you Kevin! We had a great time.

Laura MullerUnited States
Kevin was a great guide he picked us up promptly at our hotel and was very imformative on the drive up. His knowledge of Germany and the kings was fantastic. We really enjoyed the drive up both castles were beautiful Kevin was there every step of the way. We had a great lunch and went through oberamagoff on the way home for ice cream. I would very much recommend Kevin as a superior guide. The only recommendation I would make is that we know beforehand we needed to pay for entrance to the castles.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laura, thanks so much. It was a pleasure having your family here. I’ve noted your comment about entrance fees and will make it more clear on the tour page.

Kevin is knowledgeable about history, geography, culture and comparative politics. He was skilled in adapting this knowledge to the interests of his guests and keeping it entertaining. Our group ranged from 60-year-olds to 26-year-olds with a wide range of experience and interests. Each one came away very satisfied that their needs were met. We were not forced to follow a pre-packaged agenda; Kevin modified it according to his assessment of our interests.
Robin VitolsUnited States
Kevin and this tour were absolutely outstanding! He customized our day to suit interests of both parents and teenagers. Kevin is very knowledgeable about the sites on this tour and Germany in general. In addition to being informative for this day, he also gave us great ideas for things to do at our next stops on the vacation. We had a delicious Bavarian lunch and toured the area! I highly recommend this tour. It is so much better than navigating the train, etc. on other tours.

Kevin did a marvelous job for our party of four and managed to get us around to all three Ludwig castles, including Hohenschwangau, in one day, just as we requested. We really appreciate it. He did a nice job of mixing history, walking, stopping for lunch, and competent driving. We recommend Kevin very highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nancy, thank you very much! It was my pleasure to take your group to the castles.

We enjoyed our trip to Neuschwanstein not only for the beauty of the castle but for all the information shared with us by our guide, Kevin. He made history come alive and cleared up the time line of Bavaria. He spent as much time as we needed and he is a very good driver!

David ChampionUnited Kingdom
We were able to cram in plenty in our tour thanks to Kevin,s skills there were lots we did not expect a dip into Austria and an extra old town visit on the trip back to Munich. By pre booking timed slots we were able to maximise our visit time. We are active and the tour was tailored to our level of ability I am confident that less active people would be catered in a different way. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David, thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure taking you and Helen and Ruth to the castles.
Adam KaiserNew York, NY, United States
Kevin spent the entire day with our family, taking us to castles and out of the way places we never expected. Everything was seamless -- he prepared in advance, with all the tickets waiting for us and everything timed perfectly. Most of all, we enjoyed his company and rich knowledge of the area and local customs. Just an outstanding guide. It was a fantastic day - one we'll remember forever. Thanks, Kevin, for showing us so much -- and the beer garden you sent us to for dinner was superb!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Adam, so glad you all had a great day. It was nice having you here.
Thomas ClancyUnited States
Great personal tour by a knowledgeable and professional guide. Kevin picked us up at our hotel and spent the next 10 hours traveling to the castle pointing out interesting points of interest along the way. He provided all the history of Munich and of the royal family that ruled Bavaria and led to the creation of the castle and other properties of King Ludwig II. Excellent !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael! Glad everyone had a good time.

Spent an enjoyable day with Kevin touring the Bavarian countryside visiting Neuschwanstein, Linderhof palace, and Oberammergau. Kevin's knowledge of King Ludwig and his role in Bavarian history made for interesting and informative day. We highly recommend this tour.

Kevin was great!He drove us on back roads where the big buses can't go and stopped for postcard-like photos!He shared his vast knowledge of the history and culture of the area so we had a better understanding of what we were visiting.He took us to an excellent, small local restaurant away from the tourist crowds.Kevin's vehicle is very roomy and comfortable and he is an excellent driver/guide.We wish he could have been our guide for more of our tours!We highly recommend Kevin...he gives a fantastic tour!
Sue WeiermanUnited States
This tour by Kevin should not be missed. His knowledge about the Bavarian history and kings enriched our tour in the castle. Kevin knows the best places for pictures and manages the tickets and tour times with ease. However, what endeared us the most about Kevin was his patience and interest with us in Oberammergau while we were buying nativity sets. Not once did he indicate that we were taking too long, and he assisted us in putting pieces together to make the perfect nativities that we purchased.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sue. It was a pleasure having you and Laurie in Munich for several days. I was happy to help with the nativity sets - with the the huge selection available it is never a rapid process picking out the perfect set.
A nice blend of western background and german culture. Kevin was very informative and helpful - even in locating a store to purchase snow shoes for my son. A fabulous day.
Robert StephensUnited States
Great tour to the Ludwig castles by Kevin. He has a great knowledge of the area and was quite interesting to be around. I highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Robert! I am glad that we had some snow for you!
Cynthia De La Garza QMexico
Kevin was very patient with our group, very respectful and was allways trying to meet our needs. We were all very satisfied with the service and his knowledge about Germany's culture and history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cynthia, many thanks for the kind words. It was a genuine pleasure having your group here. I look forward to seeing everyone again some day!
Milton BirdwellUnited States
Kevin exceeded our expectations in every way. Upon arrival in his very comfortable 7 passenger Van, we began our trip. He was interesting and prepared to provide us with the perfect day. Even though it rained most of the day, he knew how to guide us to the dry spots and the best places for photos. We would definitely use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Milton, many thanks for the kind words. It was a pleasure showing your group beautiful (but rainy) Bavaria. Hope you enjoy the rest of the trip. Come back soon! - Kevin
Joel HatoffUnited States
Kevin picked us up at our hotel and returned us there at the end of the day. The trip was fantastic to Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castles. His commentary while driving kept all 8 of us enthralled abaout the history and customs of the time. He knows it all and his english is perfect since he is an American. There was no "accent" problem which we have had with other guides on occasion. He is the one to use in Bavaria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks once again! The energy level of your group was amazing and inspiring!
Jaci HoffmanUnited States
