The Landhaus Koessel
Bavaria was my third tour with European Castles Tours, all different and all wonderful! The special style of touring of Astrid and her team means small groups, flexible itineraries, incredible attention to detail, and perfect balance between scheduled activity and free time. There is plenty of time to savor the usual tourist sites. Friendly manners and warm smiles complete the package. No surprise that Astrid's tours often include repeat customers!
Thank you so much for the great tour you took us on. All was very enjoyable! There castles were the hi-light, but your planning, the Landhaus where we stayed, bus rides, dinners – all were first class. Thanks you so much.
