    The tour was good but too much talking and the facts were off. The guide was personable but it could have been delivered in 20 minutes.

    Wir hatten eine tolle geführte Tour rund um und im Schloss Neu Schwanstein. Die Tour bei Armin Saad hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und er hat uns leidenschaftlich etwas über die Geschichte vom Schloss und Ludwig dem II. erzählt. Die Tour dauerte drei Stunden, aber ehrlich gesagt hätte ich gerne noch viel mehr über die royale Geschichte erfahren, obwohl ich eigentlich nicht wirklich großes Interesse für Geschichte habe.

    Loved this tour!! We had Amir as a tour guide. He was outstanding! He was well-spoken, funny, and most of all demonstrated his love of history. By taking this tour it also removed a lot of uncertainty about when to be where. The castles can be confusing and it’s so important to be in the right place at the appointed time. The tour of the inside of the castle is very brief — it is not done by the tour company I am reviewing. The tour company secures the ticket for you and enhances your castle visit with stories you would otherwise never know. You simply meet your guide at the beginning and he takes you on a nice walk to the key spots, all the while sharing history that the official tour inside the castle doesn’t do. Highly recommend. So glad we did it. If I’m doubt…just book it. You won’t regret it. Thanks Amir!

    The tour needs to provide a better meeting place. We were late and when we asked for the address the people in the area told us there are two places with the same address. The guide did a great job but the guided tour inside the castle is not so impressive. Exterior of the castle is most impressive.

    Ideal, wenn man sich im letzten Moment entscheidet und keine Tickets mehr zu haben sind. Empfang im LA-Hostel mit Erklärungen zu der Tour von einer sehr netten und professionellen Dame. Bravo! Greifen Sie ohne zu zögern auf Bavarian-Castel-Tours zurück! Der exzellente Service ist den (geringen) Aufpreis wert.

    Amir è veramente bravo una guida molto professionale, chiaro e simpatico Anche il giro in calesse ha il suo fascino

    Does exactly what it says. Possibly the only way to get tickets to the castle at the minute. Delighted to have found it

    Es war super! Toller Guide und viel Fachwissen! Würde ich sofort wieder buchen. Super Spannend und ein Erlebnis.

    Amir/Viator made it easy to tour the castle. He gave us many details that were not included in the 30 minute tour. When our plans changed he helped us secure tickets for the next day! The bus dropped us near the top, horse carriage down…amazing tour!
