Once in a lifetime experience

I enjoyed the trip immensely. When they say a 20-minute hike it delivers, it was a 20-minute uphill hike! Lucia was a fantastic guide so knowledgeable about Ludwig and the castle. Her excitement was contagious. The views from the castle and the castle itself were fabulous! Would definitely do it again!
