MY*GUiDE EXCLUSiVE Neuschwanstein Tour INCL. TICKETS from GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN
NEUSCHWANSTEIN CASTLE - a dream destination for tourists from all over the world - ... in times of Corona!

On this private full-day tour you will receive - even at short notice - GUARANTEED SKIP-THE-LINE ADMISSION for the guided castle tour, which you can experience virtually EXCLUSIVELY due to the small groups of visitors!
From the very beginning, you will be accompanied by your personal licensed tour guide, who is of course familiar with the current situation. So all you need to do is ENJOY this day!
You can also enjoy the entertaining & informative ride in our new & comfortable Volkswagen-Minivan, where we can visit a wealth of other attractions.Itinerary

• But above all, look forward to your well trained guide Stefan with more than 20 years of professional experience. He will provide everything worth knowing information about all the sights, the country and will find an answer to almost all your questions, also about Garmisch-Partenkirchen.Stop At:
Pilgrimage Church of Wies, Wies 12, 86989 Steingaden, Bavaria Germany
On the way to the castles it would be a pity to pass one of the overwhelming baroque churches.
Your guide will provide you with all the worth knowing information, for example about the very popular Wies-Church, or – what we not recommend less – one of the other nearby churches, which are still "secret tips", quiet and peaceful far away from the tourist masses. Please note that if we drive on the Plansee route from Neuschwanstein castle to Linderhof palace, it is not possible to visit the Wieskirche. Instead, we'll show you a similarly magnificent Baroque church.
