What people are saying about Bavaria

It was a very nice day and our son (4 years) had a lot of fun. We will surely come back again. For children from 3-6 years it is sure to be a great surprise. It was well attended, with very nice weather, but not overly crowded. Connection to public transport could be a little better, especially on weekends (shorter intervals), otherwise highly recommended

great experience for grandchildren, grandma + grandpa - a good number of visitors and still space - friendly, helpful helpers from the park - a shame for the closed stands in the park restaurant - great parking space for motorhomes - we'd love to come back

Our guide Rob made our visit in Munich amazing! He for sure knows his stuff! I specially loved how they laid out the route, making the busy part of town the last. This is a great way to see Munich!

We had a fantastic time following the clues and exploring Munich. We learned and adventured through the central part . Highly recommend 10/10. We were a group of 7 adults and one 10 year old.

Fue un tour excelente. Se llega al castillo cuando no esta lleno aún. Se conocen pequeños pueblos y el almuerzo es delicioso al finalizar. Excelente servicio.
