Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Tour with Horse Carriage Ride From Hohenschwangau

5 Star Service! Excellent experience for our family! Would highly recommend it to everyone 🙂

Amir was our guide, and he was such a pleasure. Our family met in the parking lot as described, and he gave us a good intro to what to expect. He coordinated the horse carriage ride to the top and met us up there. From there he continued with a very in-depth knowledge of the history of the area and the castle before our tickets let us in for the self-guided tours of the castle. He gave us a good deal of tips on what to look for inside the castle, which we never would have known without his guidance. Afterward, he met us outside and gave us some final history of the castle and the royal family. We finished by walking us back down and giving us area suggestions for the rest of our day. We felt very well taken care of, and he was a true professional. It was night and day, better than booking the tickets to the castle alone. I would recommend it to everyone!

Views that left us speechless and an Excellent Tour guide to lead the way

The tour was phenomenal! Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the castle, and its absolutely brilliant and underrated creator, King Ludwig II. My husband booked this tour for my birthday, and I consider it to be the best birthday experience I have ever had! We plan to go back and bring friends with us the next time!

Neuschwanstein Castle and Highline 179 Private Tour From Munich

Ottima esperienza

Consiglierei senz’ altro questo tour. Amir è stato il vero valore aggiunto del tour: precisione simpatia e gentilezza, ci ha raccontato la storia del castello e di Ludi II aiutandoci a capire e a contestualizzare ciò che stavamo visitando. Quando un lavoro lo si fa con passione si vede e questo è proprio uno di quei casi. Una volta nel castello, abbiamo fatto il tour classico con l audio guida, che non mi avrebbe dato assolutamente nulla se Amir non ci avesse prima spiegato una serie di cose non segnalate poi dall’ audio guida e che invece mi hanno aiutato molto di più ad apprezzare e capire ciò che stavo visitando. Esperienza piacevolissima, consiglio a tutti di affidarsi a loro! Amir parla benissimo sia inglese che italiano.

Lovely day trip and friendly driver, Martin!

Totally enjoyed our experience with Martin. Friendly and knowledgeable driver, who also brought us to another hidden Church that was not on the itinerary.

The itinerary planned was great, and we were not required to rush anywhere. Martin kept track of the time and was flexible in adding any more activities or sights if possible.

Will definitely hope to go on more day trips with them on my subsequent trips to Germany.

Neuschwanstein Castle and More Private Tour From Munich

Amazing tour of Neuschwanstein!!

The highlight of my family holiday in Germany is to visit Neuschwanstein. When we arrived in Munich and realized that the tickets to Neuschwanstein were sold out, we were devastated. Fortunately, the Andaz Munich front desk manager found our tickets. We are very happy with the service provided by our tour guide, Amir.
We learned a lot about the history of Neuschwanstein from Amir. It was definitely interesting and informative. We will definitely recommend anyone to book the guided tour, as my family and I had a great and enjoyable time! A big thank you to Amir!!

Neuschwanstein Castle Private Tour: knowledgeable and friendly guide Amir

The ticket to this tour was easy to purchase, directions to the meeting point were extremely clear, and the location was easy to find. The guide, Amir, was punctual, friendly. The tour was well-paced, and Amir was humorous and was knowledgeable about not only the castle but the history of the area as well. The cost of the tour includes the castle entry ticket. Group was 10 pax, nicely sized. Enjoyed the tour with Amir and would definitely recommend it!

Fairy-tale Castles Private Tour From FĂĽssen

Just a magical day seeing castles I had always dreamed of visiting.

Was on holiday in Germany with my boyfriend. With the increased limitations on visitors to popular sites due to COVID, we thought it would be good to use a professional to ensure we could see what we wanted to see and have a good experience. We were not disappointed! Amir arrived at our hotel in Fussen right on time, we had a wonderful drive to the castles and he knew exactly where to go to avoid the chaos. Amir has an impressive amount of knowledge about the area and its history and is a ton of fun. I also think he knows everyone in the town! He was incredible. Also, we noted how many people couldn’t get in and were especially appreciative of Amir’s connections and our ease in navigating the castles, thanks to him.

We had a great time and will definitely use him for other tours when I am back in Germany.

Private Tour To Zugspitze and Innsbruck

Zugspitze and Innsbruck with a tour guide for sure!

Our tour guide was Amir, The specialist. He was extremely knowledgeable and full of fun facts about German and Austrian history. He was also very funny! We got to see amazing small downs. In the end, there is a breathtaking view at the top of the Zugspitze. So make sure to take this tour! You will never regret it! This is something fun for the whole family. Please also remember to tip your tour guides!

Fantastic tour of a marvelous place

Great tour, lots of interesting historical facts. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
The price was reasonable as well. The fog made things a bit difficult, but otherwise, it was an
awesome experience.

Amir’s knowledge of history is amazing, and he is the perfect guide. Everything was well-organized. We can really recommend this tour.

Neuschwanstein Castle and More Private Tour From Munich

Incredible Experience!

This was one of my favorite days we had in our entire 10 days in Europe. It was wonderful to have a comfortable and private transport down to the castle from Munich. Amir was so knowledgeable and friendly, creating a stress-free and fun day for us. He took us to the most beautiful places and educated us on the area so well. He took photos of us that we wouldn’t normally have been able to get, which was so nice of him! It was a perfect day, if you are debating this, just DO IT! You won’t regret it!

Fairy-tale Castles Private Tour From FĂĽssen

Diese Tour lohnt sich auf jeden Fall!

Man merkt, dass der Guide für das Thema Neuschwanstein inklusive seiner Geschichte dahinter lebt & es von ganzer Seele aus liebt. Meines Erachtens präsentiert er das Thema noch besser als in der Führung Neuschwanstein selbst!
Kann ich auf jeden Fall empfehlen!

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

Ludwig II, a life full of cliffhangers….

Our guide Amir was an excellent host, had an interesting story about Ludwig II which added value before the audio tour in the castle itself. Well organized. And the cliffhangers make you come back…….

Private tour with Amir

Had a private tour this morning with Amir as a guide. He knows a lot about the castle and its history. He tells it with a lot of passion and humor, and that’s why you keep listening with interest. Definitely recommended for young and old .. Amir thanks again.

Great insights to Iconic Castle

The tour with Amir was great. He gave many good tips and made us appreciate the beauty of the landscape and the Schloss. We were not sure what to expect, but we were positively surprised by the tour and what we experienced. We are glad to have experienced this half-day with Amir.

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Tour with Horse Carriage Ride From Hohenschwangau

THE GREAT AMIR!

Amazing tour, the horse ride is the best option to go up and down the castle.
The tour guide, Amir, was waiting for us 20 mins before the schedule at the meeting point.
He told us a lot of secrets and information about the castle. He was our photographer!!!
If you are thinking of going on a tour, this is the guy!

Well worth the money – Excellent tour 🙂
Spectacular tour. Reasonably priced and just top quality. Amir was our tour guide, and you could not find a finer or friendlier tour guide. He is knowledgeable and so enthusiastic, with a great sense of humor. Pick-up and drop-off at our hotel was timely and professional. Thanks to Special Private Tours

Amir Saad, Master of guides

Unser Guide war Amir Saad. Bester Guide ever! Er fesselt seine Begleiter mit einem Mix aus Fachwissen und Humor. Dabei stellt er immer Fragen auf deren Antwort man ein bisschen warten muss…spannend halt!

Fairy-tale Castles Private Tour From FĂĽssen

This tour is a winner

We had a great time on our tour of southern Bavaria. Our guide, Amir, managed to get us tickets to Neuschwanstein when we couldn’t get them ourselves online. He also helped us get booked on the English language tours at Neuschwanstein and Schloss Linderhof. (Actually, I think he sweet-talked the guide into changing the second tour to English, haha.) He was personable and knowledgeable, and made the day very enjoyable, even for our very skeptical teens. We learned more about the history of the area then we would have on our own.

Die FĂĽhrung zum Schloss Neuschwanstein durch Amir war sehr entspannt und sympathisch.
Vielen Dank fĂĽr die interessanten Infos zum Schloss und die hilfreichen Tipps fĂĽr die weitere FĂĽhrung im Schloss.
Amir kann ich uneingeschränkt empfehlen. So machts Spaß! 🙂

Neuschwanstein Castle and More Private Tour From Munich

Exceded all expectations!

If I could give this tour and guide more than 5 stars, I would! Amir was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and insightful about the area, and its history. He even added a stop to a little-known, but wonderful church. In Oberammergau, he recommended an excellent restaurant and gave us extra free time. It was a long day, but worth every minute. If you can only take one tour in Munich, make it this one. You won’t regret it.

Douglas B

Fairy-tale Castles Private Tour From FĂĽssen

Fantastic Fun Tour

This is by far the best way at a reasonable price to have a great learning experience and get the most out of your time at Neuschwanstein. Amir makes it fun for everyone while creating a fun learning environment. He also will customize the tour and even add extras for his clients. Would do it again.

Romantic Road: Rothenburg ob der Tauber and More Private Tour

Wonderful tour with Amir

Our family of four did a private day trip with Special Private Tours. Amir was our guide and he was fantastic. Amir accommodated all of our needs and went over and beyond. We made special arrangements for airport pick up to begin our tour in Germany. Our family did the Romantic Tour with Amir. We made several stops along the way including Harburg Castle, Dinkelsbuhl, and Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber. Amir was very knowledgable of the history and was great at helping us have a good background of what we were visiting. Overall, I can’t begin to tell you what a great day we had with Amir and Special Private Tours. It was a highlight of our trip and well worth every minute. This will be a tour that you will not regret.

Neuschwanstein Castle and More Private Tour From Munich

Perfect Day in Bavaria

Could not recommend this anymore. We did a private tour for 2 and the entire day was perfect. From the sites, to the tour guide, to the food recommendations and more. No waiting at the castle. Straight in.
Do it!

Private Tour To Innsbruck And Swarovski Crystal Worlds

Wonderful day trip; Elisabeth was a fantastic guide

Our group of 10 booked this day trip from Munich. Our guide, Elisabeth, and a driver picked us up at our hotel in a very comfortable vehicle with plenty of room for everyone. Right from the beginning, Elisabeth was personable, attentive and answered all our questions. She is very knowledgeable about history, geography, Germany, and the sites we were seeing. With her fun and interesting commentary along the way, the drive went by quickly. Swarovski Crystal World was beautifully decorated for Christmas and we loved going “into the mountain.” Everything was well organized. Innsbruck was one of our favorite stops during our vacation. It is just a beautiful town and our favorite Christmas market of all that we visited. After our tour, Elisabeth arranged with the driver for us to be dropped off at Hofbrauhaus for our dinner reservation. After a long day, she could have just dropped us off at the door; but instead, she went with us inside the restaurant and showed us the vaults where the regulars keep their beer steins (so cool!), gave us a little history of the place, and walked us up to the Festival Hall to make sure everything was set with our reservation! This is the kind of extra attention you get when you book with Special Private Tours. I would highly recommend them.

Romantic Road: Rothenburg ob der Tauber and More Private Tour

Amazing, personalized experience!

I booked this tour last minute for our family of 5 (older parents, adult children, and teen grandchild) and it was absolutely a superior idea to our initial plan of just taking the train direct to Rothenburg. Amir was gracious in accommodating my last-minute booking and tailoring the day to what we wanted to prioritize – Rothenburg was the main attraction for us initially, but DO NOT SKIP DinkelsbĂĽhl!!! As Amir told us, it is very underrated and overlooked, in fact, my mother wished we had stayed there longer after seeing Rothenburg. (we went in November before the Christmas season was in full swing; great that there were no crowds, but honestly DinkelsbĂĽhl was a more unique “small/old town”. Amir was very professional, considerate, and kind throughout – adjusting to my family’s needs (my mother is not able to walk long distances, so he finds the best places for us to be dropped off from the car, etc.). Aside from giving the history of the places we went to, he also showed us around practical places to eat and shop. The best part about it is really that he will personalize your trip for you, but at the same time be available as a fully-fledged guide!

Private Tour To Innsbruck And Swarovski Crystal Worlds

Relax e divertimento

Erano diversi anni che ci volevamo andare e finalmente è capitata l’occasione e l’attesa NON è stata delusa. Abbiamo facilmente comperato i biglietti on line … per colpa/fortuna dell’ ambiguitĂ  degli orari indicati sui biglietti siamo arrivati alle 8.30 di un uggioso sabato 2 novembre … e meno male: la parte indoor del museo e le sue istallazioni meritano di essere viste senza confusione, per goderne pienamente. Al termine della visita al museo, intorno alle 12.30. siamo usciti trovando ad aspettarci una giornata spettacolare che ha reso la parte outdoor del parco un esperienza magica.

Great private tour experience!

We planned to go to Neuschwanstein castle and the tickets and tours were completely sold out. Luckily, I contacted this company and Amir saved the day when he offered us a private tour to the castle with a horse carriage ride included. He is super knowledgeable and friendly and made our day very special and memorable. Absolutely recommended!

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Tour with Horse Carriage Ride From Hohenschwangau

Perfect and highly recommended!

We planned to visit Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles in high season, and Special Private Tours proved to be the perfect choice! Amir, our superb guide, took us on a magical tour of both castles, bypassing the long tickets lines and enriching the experience with interesting information on the history of this enchanting place. The tour was flexibly arranged to accommodate our needs. We could easily communicate and coordinate with Amir before the tour and everything was as promised, actually – above and beyond. And reasonably priced. We also had a pleasant conversation with Amir during the tour, and he gladly answered all our questions, from both parents and children.
Highly recommended. Definitely will seek to do more private tours with this company next time we visit Germany.
Thank you, Amir!

OTTIMO

Abbiamo prenotato la visita “salta la fila” a Neuschwanstein e ci siamo trovati veramente molto bene.
Amir è molto preparato e simpatico e ci ha dato tutti gli strumenti per visitare al meglio lo splendido
castello. Consigliatissimo per famiglie, davvero un ottimo servizio.

Neuschwanstein Castle Half-Day Private Tour From FĂĽssen

My tour was excellent. I went on the Neuschwanstein VIP skip the line tickets by Special Private Tours

There are over 20 types of tours/activities mentioned on Trip Advisor for seeing Neuschwanstein – which adds confusion to which tour to book! My review is intended to assist anyone who wants to book a tour to see this magnificent castle and learn about the story behind the King and his castle.

When we booked back in May we wanted a tour that gave us knowledge about the history of the castle, and its creator King Ludwig II, and we wanted to see inside the castle. We wanted to stay near the castle and avoid the long travel time by tours from saying Munich. The castle is located in the Schwangau area. We stayed in this area, and it was a 10-minute bus ride from where we stayed at the campground Camping Brunnen.

The tour we brought, titled above, gave us what we wanted and extra.

Amir, our guide, was excellent. His communication style and knowledge exceeded our expectations. We got THE photos and afterward I was keen to read up more about the King and his castle.

The tour started outside the castle, where Amir gave very informative, factual knowledge about the King based on evidence and circumstances. This dispelled many rumors of info circulating on various media platforms.

Amir took us to the best viewing points to take photos of Neuschwanstein castle, and also we viewed Hohenschwangau Castle from a viewpoint, and he spoke about the relationship between the 2 castles, and their importance in the present day. After hearing the information from Amir, we had 15 minutes before entering the castle for our audio device tour with another person, who simply took us through the rooms that the audio device spoke about. This is the only inside guide to the castle you can get. This is the beauty of this tour. From Amir, we had the information and context of the King and castle prior to entering the castle. So we were able to see inside with the audio talking about each room. The castle is vastly incomplete, in that more than 200 rooms are still in stages of completion or renovation. In total, we saw about 12 rooms, I can’t remember exactly. I would have liked to see more rooms and areas. What we saw was certainly fascinating and gave me a good impression of what we were told by Amir. The tour finished on the 4th floor, then we took the stairs back down to ground floor. Amir told us some extra public areas to visit when heading towards the exit of the castle interior, this was very useful to know. The interior part of the tour is run to military precision, absolutely no photo taking allowed.

I highly recommend this tour, especially the one where Amir is your guide!!
It was well worth it. It started at 9 am, where we met and took a bus up the hill to the tour start point. The tour ended at 12 noon, but we could have wandered more outside the castle if we wanted.

We felt it was time well spent on this tour, especially since we missed getting tickets last year – we didn’t plan sufficient time ahead. This time we booked in May 2019 to see the castle during peak season in August 2019. Some say it’s very touristy, but for me, the intrigue and fairy tale design and romanticism interior design of the castle is unique and well worth seeing.

The most useful part of the tour for us, in ascending order, was 1. Learning about the King and Castle from Amir, 2. Seeing the castle exterior from the viewing point, 3. Seeing the castle interior.

Amir, if you are reading this review, thank you from 2 appreciative kiwis, Diana and Mark.

Romantic Road: Rothenburg ob der Tauber and More Private Tour

Outstanding tour, wonderful tour guide, unforgettable experience

Our private tour with Amir of Special Private Tours was outstanding in every way. Everything went smoothly, from the registration to pick up and drop off at our hotel, and all the activities. The private van was comfortable and spacious. Amir was very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting information about the sites. We felt fortunate that he was able to customize the trip based on our preferences, and provided valuable tips for maximizing the benefit of our time. At one stop, he showed us the most amazing pretzel we have ever had. This private tour was definitely the highlight of our trip. Highly recommended!

Private Tour to Zugspitze and Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Immerse yourself in Bavarian culture on an exclusive tour from Munich.

This tour is an excellent deal for travelers who have limited time and want a unique experience. Your private guide picks you up in Munich and takes you to the top of Germany – Zugspitze, with panoramic views over 400 mountain peaks. Walk the streets of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the site of the 1936 Olympics. Immerse yourself in Bavarian chocolate, learning about the transformation from bean to bar. Bring home a hand-molded chocolate bar.

Neuschwanstein Castle and More Private Tour From Munich

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.

Steven and Tammy Fleming

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 TrĂĽmmelbach 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.

2 Day Tour (All in one)

Neuschwanstein Castle, etc. from Munich

We only had 2 days in Munich and wanted to see as much as possible while we were there. Special Private Tours and our driver/guide David were fantastic! David picked us up in front of our hotel and drove the “scenic route” to Neuschwanstein Castle, playing tour guide, historian, and DJ along the way. He arranged for us to tour the castle without waiting in the long line, took us to Oberammergau for lunch and on to the Linderhof Castle for a full day of touring. He was a delightful conversationalist, and as a Czech native, he was very helpful in interpreting some Czech words one of our companions remembered from her childhood. Furthermore, he dropped us back at our hotel an hour later than our tour was supposed to be done, but he was very gracious about having been delayed by a downpour and offered to take us to the airport the next morning. We could not have asked for a better person to spend our day with. I highly recommend using Special Private Tours for customized trips if you are traveling in Munich.

Rowena

Private Tour to Zugspitze and Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Excellent Day Tour

David was our tour guide, and he was fantastic, polite, friendly and funny!
He made the day relaxing and was happy to do what we wanted. Traveling with David was like traveling with a friend.
We highly recommend this tour and David, and hope to travel with him again in the future.

Acorn Family

3-Day Private Tour Best of Bavaria and Tyrol

New Years Holiday 2019

Where do I begin? We are a family of 4 with our kids in college. We planned a new year trip to Germany, Prague, and Austria. Amir started our 4-day adventure in Austria, then on to Zugspitze, the next day was touring the castles, and ended on the final day touring the Romantic Road. The trip was more than I could ever expect and made memories that will last a lifetime. Amir was an excellent guide, and we felt like he was a member of our family after 4 days. We had to brave more than one snowstorm, but it actually added to the excitement of our trip. From the breathtaking views at Zugspitze to the Church in the Meadow, every day was filled with so many new things to see. He took us to some great food spots, and we enjoyed the chocolate shop and the pretzels on the Romantic Road. If you are considering a tour with Amir, DO NOT think twice. He is knowledgeable, fun, a gentleman, and will do everything in his power to make your tour an experience you will not forget. Thanks, Amir, for everything! Some day we hope to be back in Bavaria and will be calling you.

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Tour with Horse Carriage Ride From Hohenschwangau

Amir was our tour guide for the Neuschwanstein castle tour from FĂĽssen. 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!

Eagles Nest and salt mine tour

We had a very enjoyable time with our guide, Franz. He was personable and knowledgeable. He gave very good insights and took us in a comfortable vehicle from our Salzburg hotel to the country. The views were amazing, and I learned a lot in the salt mine. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Brian & Laurie

Private Tour to Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castle from FĂĽssen

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!

Emanuela

Romantic Road: Rothenburg ob der Tauber and More Private Tour

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.

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

We could not have found a more informative, warm and friendly yet professional person than Amir to spend our day trip to Neuschwanstein castle and Fussen!
So well informed and amazing knowledge of Bavarian history it was a sheer pleasure spending the day with Amir and our trip with him ended up being the best day of our trip! Don’t hesitate and book your trip stress-free with Amir!

Salzburg and Salt Mines Private Tour

Everything you would look for in a tour guide and more!

My family and I, were traveling from Munich to Garmisch and wanted to visit Neuschwanstein Castle and Lindehoff on the way. We engaged the services of Amir, and he made it a wonderful day!
Amir was not only very courteous and professional, but he also made us feel very welcome and could be easily engaged in conversation. The tour was pitched at our level of comfort, and we did not feel rushed or harassed during the journey, as I have felt on other private tours. Amir could even relate to my two teenage kids, and they loved him!
His knowledge about Germany, its culture, history, and politics are deep, and he is willing to share with you whatever you would like to know about this amazing country.
It was so easy being in Amir’s company, and it felt more like going on a sightseeing trip with one of your family members showing you around.
Halfway through the journey, my husband and I decided to book Amir for our trip from Munich to Salzburg the following week, with a visit to the Salt Mines along the way. We again had a wonderful day in the company of Amir.
Thank you, Amir, for making our trip really memorable, and we are looking forward to meeting you on our next trip, or if you and your family venture over to Singapore, we would love to host you.

Private Tour To 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.

Bobbie and Tom

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!

Private Tour to Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castle from FĂĽssen

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!

Private Tour to Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castle from FĂĽssen

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.
