This has been the coolest part of my trip to Europe this time and my first trip 10 years ago. The bus company is subcontracted to haul people on the tour to Neuschwanstein. There was a slight miscommunication I believe with our original bus guide and it looked like the trip was going to be a bust. Once we figured out what the official agenda was and that we were on the right tour it completely 180'd. When we got to Neuschwanstein and realized that we had to check into the Muller Hotel the trip became highly recommended. The castles were amazing. Neuschwanstein is a must see if you stay there or not. I recommend going inside the castles at least once. Neuschwanstein looks like a Disney castle and is good for people of all ages. The Muller hotel was as good and hospitable hotel as I have stayed at. The staff deserves the highest rating. The double room also very cozy with the old German feel. We had enough time to check out the other castle the following day (Hohenschwangau) and take in the sights. The night we stayed we took a cab ride to Fussen which is a local smaller town with enough to do. I would stay at the Fussen again and could spend several days there. Everyone around town was also very accommodating. For the most part everyone speaks English and if you know the basics in German you should have no problem. The tour guide that took us back to Munich after the night stay was also very knowledgeable and had all of her ducks in a row. I think the poor experience with getting to Neuschwanstein was a complete fluke and do not expect repeat trouble for anyone else. I highly recommend this tour and would consider doing it when I make it back to Munich.

I stayed in the Muller Hotel which was excellent.

This was fantastic hotel absolutely fabulous second castle caused me some problems as the climb was so long and steep and I have a bad back and two injured knees but well worth the pain and effort when I eventually reached the top really recommend staying overnight to be able to see the third castle

No complaints at all. Highly recommended. We had a great time. It was the highlight of our six week travels through Europe. We appreciated the constant reminder emails from Viator as this reassured us that our booking was confirmed. Staff from the bus company and Hotel Mueller were excellent. Town was quite and relaxing - if you are looking for night life this is not the place for you! Visitors shoud do the tour of Hohenschwangau castle to get an overview of the history as tours of Linderhop and Nueschwanstein are very basic and crowded. Understandably, no photos are allowed in the castles but we felt that they could at least allow access to one or two external facing windows so that people can photograph the views from the castles. Visitors must take a photo from the bridge (worth the extra walk) when visiting Nueschwanstein as this castle currently has scaffolding on its other sides. We recommend that visitors take the bus or horse and cart to castle Nueschwanstein unless they have lots of time and are very fit. We travelled on a bus with day trippers to the castle and many expressed disappointment that they did not know that staying overnight was an option! We would not do it any other way.
