Neuschwanstein Castle and More Private Tour

Booking our tour through Amir was easy and smooth. David our guide was FANTASTIC! We appreciated the education that he provided and truly valued our friendly conversations throughout the day. Seeing and touring the castles were enjoyable, but David made this a great EXPERIENCE.

On this website, Amir Saad states the following, “Come as a tourist and leave as a friend.”

This statement is true. We now have new friends.

3-Day Private Tour Best of Bavaria and Tyrol

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.

Small Group Tour to Neuschwanstein Castle With Skip The Line Service.

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!

Private Tour to Neuschwanstein or/and Hohenschwangau Castle

My family and I had traveled to Europe over Easter spring break as one of my kids was studying abroad. As we had wanted to see this castle we were lucky to have stumbled across Amir and his tour. We were in Fussen for the day and were beyond satisfied with how Amir presented the history and insights to what we would see and hear once inside. Inside the castle tours are run by a separate company but we met at a hotel where he picked us up, took us to the bridge, the lake, around the castle, got us skip the line tickets, and a carriage ride back down. His humor and professionalism and the evidence that he has a full knowledge of the subject were more than we could have hoped for! While the weather was not the best (Easter this year was April first) it was a trade-off with not having to wait for what could have been hours during peak season and it was not as tourist filled. Would definitely consider using his services again!

Romantic Road: Harburg Castle, Dinkelsbühl, Rothenburg ob der Tauber

We booked the Romantic Road Tour with Amir and his new company Special Private Tours. I have to say, it was an amazing experience. On the way to Rothenburg we called off at Harburg castle perched above the river valley and our guide Amir was fluent in Italian as well as being most knowledgeable about the castle itself. Then a stop at the beautiful small city Dinkelsbuhl, with its well-preserved city walls.
We then proceeded along the romantic road to the UNESCO protected town of Rothenburg. The highlight of our visit was to go to the world famous Christmas Store of Kathie Wolefahrt, where it is Christmas all year around. The town itself is absolutely beautifully preserved in medieval times.

We enjoyed Amir’ s company, his stories, how he is passionate about his job and the places we visited. His friendly but professional behavior made this trip even more special.

Innsbruck and Ambras Castle

Ambras is fascinating… I could have spent half a day in the Museum of Oddities alone! But there is so much more to see…
Amir is a delight; his statement of “come as a tourist, leave as a friend” certainly defines our time with him!
This little known castle is one not to miss.

3 Day Royal Tour (Ludwig II from the beginning to the end)!!!

We could not have been more pleased with the time we spent with Amir; we actually spent a full week with him, traveling from Zurich to Lucerne, through Alsace, and to the castles of the Romantic Road. His knowledge was thorough and he was fun to be with. We laughed, learned, and had a wonderful time. He was attentive, thoughtful and was flexible about what we did and how long we wanted to spend at each place. We look forward to spending more time with him!

We were welcomed with a smile at our hotel by Amir. From the moment we met until the end of the day we felt comfortable and highly valued. Amir was passionate about his tour, sharing information he had researched and researched. If I have the opportunity to be in Bavaria again I will DEFINITELY book another tour with Amir! More than satisfied with our day.
