The tour was great but a little bit too rush. It would be so nice if the tour guide can give us a minute for picture time at each stop or an hour free time at each location.

This was a better tour than we expected. In particular we enjoyed the commentary about the countryside enroute to our destinations.

I am a castle fanatic. It was cool to see old European styles castles up close and personal. Christian was a great guide! But make sure you have your comfy shoes on. A lot of walking!
