A simply incredible six day trip in Bavaria and Switzerland with Amir of Special Private Tours. Amir planned our pre-Rhine Cruise trip to our exact desires down to the fabulous dinners and was beyond a gracious host. He is a man of incredible integrity and is simply a joy to spend time with.
Our journey began with a tour of Dachau and Old Town Munich with a beer and dinner at Hofbrauhaus. The Dachau experience is difficult and the feelings one experiences are hard to put into words, but I think the world would be a better place if everyone visited a concentration camp.
The Romantic Road day had us visiting the medieval Harburg castle and two lovely walled medieval cities. If you desire to see a true medieval city, Rothenburg is the place. It is absolutely like a being in a fairytale.
Next up was Neuschwanstein and The Wieskirche church. Both are stunning and a must see in Bavaria. No wonder Walt Disney used Neuschwanstein as the basis for his Fairytale Castles. Later we made the drive into Switzerland- yes it is expensive and worth every penny!
We enjoyed visiting the Chillon Castle on Lake Geneva as well as the beautiful Lucern area. The highlight of the trip though was the Lauterbrunnen Valley with its 72 waterfalls and dramatic cliffs. This may be the biblical Eden – words can’t describe its beauty. We visited the Trümmelbach waterfalls inside the mountain and took the train to Jungfraujoch, the top of Europe from Lauterbrunnen. If you can only visit one place in Switzerland – Lauterbrunnen would be my recommendation. All of Switzerland is worthwhile and beautiful, but Lauterbrunnen is over the top. Our final night Amir booked us in the best room with the only double window and an incredible view of the Chapel Bridge at the Hotel Des Alpes – just another perk of booking with Special Private Tours as I am certain securing the room is not easy with everyone desiring to see the iconic bridge. PS – the picture of the Chapel Bridge is from our hotel room
Don’t hesitate to book with Special Private Tours as Amir truly is special. For instance, we had a day of rain that would make our planned visit to Jungfraujoch less than desirable. Amir surprised us by adjusting our schedule to take us to the Chillon Castle adding 350 km driving for himself and the expense of the castle – then made sure we had time to do Jungfraujoch the next day. Never once did he request additional pay or insist we take the tour as originally planned. That is service one does not often receive!
We definitely came as a tourist, yet left as friends. Amir, you are simply the best – See You Soon.
Amir was our tour guide for the Neuschwanstein castle tour from Füssen. As we passed by the long lines of people waiting to get tickets, I was happy we booked with Special Private Tours. Our group of 13 was the perfect size, unlike the large groups we saw packed on large buses. The history of the castle and the area was exactly what we were looking for. Amir was awesome!
