If you’ve been planning a vacation to Munich, chances are you’ve already decided where you’re going to stay, some restaurants you’re going to try and maybe some activities and attractions you want to take in. And, if you have, that’s good. Doing your research and getting the most out of your vacation is always a great idea.
But some overlook a wonderful opportunity when they travel. For whatever reason it may be, some choose to pass on taking tours. That can be understandable. You don’t want to be on someone else’s timetable. You don’t want to have to be with people you don’t know. The excuses are limitless. But then so are the benefits.
There are plenty of Munich tours that could make your vacation more fun. Who wouldn’t want a well-rounded experience? So don’t pass on the Munich tours that are available just because you’re not sure if you want to ride in a van with people or spend the day traveling the countryside. The whole point of your vacation is to see and do as much as you can. And if you don’t like the people on the tour, well, who cares? It’s not like you ever have to see them again if you don’t want to.
So let’s talk about some of Munich tours available.
For starters, there is Mike’s Bike Tours. You spend approximately four hours riding a really comfortable bike around the city. You get to stop and enjoy some really good food and a pint of beer (if you want). There’s plenty of opportunities for same great photos along the way, too. Another fun tour, if you would like to see your share of castles, would be the Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich. This tour takes you to the two castles with a stop for shopping in between. If you didn’t know, the Neuschwanstein Castle is the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. If you’re a Disney fan, then that might be a must-see. You can also take tours that will take you into Salzburg, Austria for a day to see the fantastic historical delights they have to offer.
If you are interested in a nightly tour, you should consider the Bavarian Beer and Food Evening Tour in Munich. Learn how beer is brewed and sample from the vast selection they have to offer. Don’t forget the food, because after you take the Oktoberfest Museum tour, you’ll be treated to a wonderful dinner at the Hofbrauhaus. If that doesn’t tempt the taste buds, then what will?
You certainly are not obligated to take a tour while in Munich. However, you would be missing out on so much by not giving it a chance. Tours offer the opportunity to not only learn more about your vacation location, but to see more, too. When you’re looking through your guidebooks, consider the tours. Think about everything they can offer to enhance your trip. You’ll be glad you did.
