    There was just not one favorite memorable experience because it was all amazing. The weather was just great and staying close to the airport the last night was outstanding. Hotels was amazing along with the food every morning. So many memories hard to put into words.

    Loved the carriage ride in Seefeld, and the snowy day of shopping in Oberammergau. Loved the famous Hofbrauhaus atmosphere.

    The Christmas markets of Innsbruck were wonderful, but Oberammergau was the true star!! Our most enjoyable day however, was spending the whole afternoon all the way up the mountain in Innsbruck! Just taking it all in, wonderful! Our only complaint was that the need to drive all the way back to Innsbruck from Oberammergau and then get up early the next morning to drive to Munich was a terrible waste of time! It really made no sense. Either way, we really enjoyed the whole tour. If I might add.....if your going to spend the day in Munich, adding a tour of the BMW HQ would have been awesome! It's an incredible place.

    Very knowledgeable of the area, although some facts differ from the local guide. She was helpful in several suggestions and making other people more accommodating.

    I loved staying in one location and traveling from there. We had enough time to see the cities and explore the Markets. I do wish we could have actually gone into Neuschwanstien but understand why we did not. I would do this tour again

    Really enjoyed the walking tour in Innsbruck , the local tour guide was very informative and interesting. She also pointed out places of interest we could visit after the tour. The farewell dinner , which also was my sons birthday celebration . The magician at the dinner just made the dinner extra special . Really could have used more time in Inssbruck and Salzburg. To explore more

    Tour was very exciting and not just because it was Christmas time. We were in a very beautiful part of Europe with lots of history and the Alps.

    The price of the tour was reasonable. The included dinners were first rate and the daily breakfast was very good. Considering all the places we went to, the value was very good.

    The snow made the tour exceptional. In Munich I would suggest option to spend time at the markets or tour city. Was disappointed in the bus tour . We just drove by the places. At the summer castle we did not tour the palace. We just used the bathroom! However the rest of the trip was fantastic

    Having always wanted to tour the Christmas markets of Germany this tour gave me a taste of several in Germany and Austria. I would like to take the tour again but would use my free time differently.
