Overall, this type of tour was fine. Don't expect a tour guide - bring headsets to avoid purchasing on board and know they require a passport to borrow the information box - which had minimal information. During our 3 days we had a variety of busses and bus drivers - some better than others. Our first bus smelled really bad coming from the toilet and the driver honked and yelled a lot. The other busses and drivers were fine. We made some planned and unplanned stops on the way - at times we had no information of what town we were in not on the travel plan we were given but we had 15-20 minutes to explore. I would consider this type of tour no-frills more of a transportation bus than a tour. Our hotels were nice and located well within the towns. I would suggest this company for a well travelled individual an give it an average rating.
The first day was well organised. The hotels very good and taxis all waiting to connect to the buses. But the bus connection was late in picking us up from Rothenburg and the driver had no knowledge about the audio that was supposed to be available. To top it off, the bus from the castle back to Munich did not eventuate and a small group of us were left waiting for some time. Fortunately the muller hotel manager organised a tour bus to get back to Munich! He did a wonderful job in assisting us.
Great trip, interesting and fun with just enough guidance without the rush and structure of other tours. Hotels and points of interest were all 5 star quality.
Only recommendation is to make sure driver offers everyone audio guides in addition to apps. Best part of our trip to Germany .
We actually loved it,,,we expected to have a human guide so that was a bit of surprise,,,,but once we got over that we enjoyed our independence,,,,,and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it,,hotels were good and I would recommend it...a great way to travel,,thank you
Efficient service, smooth from start to finish. Hotels were very good, the Goldeneye Rose in Rothenburg, be sure to do the night watch man walk, he is so funny! The hotel Mueller in Hohenschwangau was amazing, we had a great room. Everyone at every step of the journey knew exactly what was expected and we could trust that the arrangements were in place for pick up, trips etc. It really was first class.
