They treated us like royalty and made our stay the best possible
First of all I would like to send a heartfelt thank-you to Barbara Harbecke for the wonderful tour she put together for us! I will admit that I was a little cautious about booking with an online travel company that was based in a country other then where I am from... Canada. But Barbara has been very patient with my requests and changes that I had to make to the original itinerary. The trip went very smoothly and without any problems when we were checking in to our various hotels. And what a great selection of hotels they were! Perhaps my only word of caution would be that many hotels still don't have air conditioning in the rooms, this made sleeping somewhat difficult at night when there was a heatwave in effect for a good part of the trip. When available fans were a lifesaver. That being said I also realize that we seem to be too pampered in North America and most people slept just fine. As this was a custom castle tour of Bavaria we were free to see what we wanted. Neuschwanstein is incredible but has huge crowds. Zugspitze is a worthwhile trip as is a halfday at Linderhof. Linderhof was the summer residence of King Ludwig and it is a magical place to visit.
Anyplace that Umfulana booked for us treated us like royalty and made our stay the best possible. We recommend visiting Lichtenstein Castle (this is not the country) and my favourite Burg Eltz castle!
Thanks again to the staff at Umfulana for making our trip a great one!
