“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

Peter was kind, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to talk to. The castle was beautiful, but the drive to the actual destination was enjoyable as well. The dairy farm experience after the castle was a nice added bonus.

“Like Us Tours is Bavaria from the lens of a local—a definite MUST DO!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

Like Us Tours is a MUST DO! I toured Europe for two months this past summer (2011), and Like Us Tours was without a doubt one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences I had. I can’t wait to do this tour again!

The tour was a wonderful way to experience Bavaria in a more intimate setting. Unlike most tours, which give you the text-book history of Bavaria, Like Us Tours gives you a look into Bavaria from the perspective of a local. On the way to Neuschwanstein castle, for example, we drove by a charming little church which happened to be where Peter’s parents were married (Peter was our tour guide).

Another plus to Like Us Tours is that Peter catered the excursion to our liking. For example, since some people in our group wanted to see more historic churches, Peter took us on a slight detour, giving us a mini-tour of two famous churches.

When we arrived at Neuschwanstein, Peter gave us the option of taking the “tourist” trail, a paved-road, or the less-traveled trail, an unpaved dirt road which was actually used by the Ludwigs. Our group opted for the unconventional trail that required walking across a metal bridge which wrapped around a waterfall. We were so close to the waterfall, you could touch the water! The view was absolutely stunning!

After visiting Neuschwanstein, Peter took us to quant little cheese farm where we ate a variety of cheeses—with beer, of course—at an affordable price.
If you want an authentic Bavarian experience without the overly-priced tourist traps, then

Like Us Tours is certainly a great choice! It was definitely more than I expected. It also didn't hurt that Peter was really cute! Ha. =)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

We absolutely loved Munich, but this would have to be the best part of our trip!! Peter was amazing, I would reccomend him and any of his tours!!! He is lovely, informative and fun loving! We had so much fun and made new friends! He tailored the tour to suit the group and we learned so much about the history and culture of Bavaria!

“Nothing could be more Bavarian!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

I took the “Off the beaten track in and around Neuschwanstein”. This tour costs €45 and begins at Wombats Hostel for a maximum of 8 persons and requires a full day to enjoy. We visited two churches, the Neuschwanstein Castle and a farm that sells wonderful milk, beer and cheese.

The churches were extremely impressive. Though small, it was decorated with exquisitely carved figurines and then painted with gold, giving a glamorous look. As for Neuschwanstein Castle, we had to climb up a steep pebble road which means, for all future visitors, to ensure you wear sport shoes and comfy clothes. Umbrellas were provided for us because it was raining.

The tour guide, Peter, was very entertaining and had a good command of English. He was also very knowledgeable, explaining to us about the state of Bavaria, its Culture, the history behind the Neuschwanstein Castle, and even sang to us folk songs.

Entrance fees and meals are not provided. So prepare some extra cash when heading off. If you are a student, do not forget your student card. It will be approximately €15 for the Castle, €15 for some souvenirs there, €3 for a Cheese Platter at the Diary Farm and do not forget to bring home a bottle of smooth, fresh Milk for the next day.

To quote a friend, "This tour is wonderful. Nothing could be more Bavarian. Peter was dressed up for the occasion, we ate great food, listened to great music. The only way to be more Bavarian was to ride a BMW and we know they don't have vans!"
