Outline Tour Itinerary

Day 1 (Fridays & Tuesdays)
Pick-up, Neuschwanstein & the Alps
After we pick you up from Munich airport, we will then drive straight to Neuschwanstein Castle where we can have a look around, take some photos and have some lunch.
Suitably refreshed we then drive into Austria and along Lake Plansee on the 'back road' back into Germany, a beautifully scenic drive with mountains either side of the road!
Time permitting,w e should have a chance to visit the monastery at Ettal for a quick beer and looka round. Oberammerammergau is then just a 10 minute drive where we will check into our Gasthofs (guesthouses) located in the centre of the beautiful village.
We then all meet up (after some free time) for a traditional Bavarian meal washed down with some fresh, cool beer!
Should be a good night and time for everyone to get to know each other and talk about how many litres they can drink in Munich!

Day 2 (Saturdays & Wednesdays)
Munich Walkabout
Today we hit the road relatively early (don't worry, you ca have a nap in the van on the way) for the 1 hour drive to Munich where we will check in and get ourselves into Munich. Time permitting, we will have a guided walkabout, we'll show you some of the places you may miss if you were on your own, we also build a thirst for our lunchtime beer!
We will then have an early lunch at around midday in Hofbräuhaus in the centre of Munich, a must-do place when in Munich, the atmosphere is electric! After lunch you can either stay with us or go have a looka roudn Munich on your own or even have a look around the Oktoberfest grounds, choice is yours.
See you tomorrow!

Day 3 (Sundays & Thursdays)
Oktoberfest, The Big Day!
Hopefully you haven't been out too late the night before as today is the big one! We will all go down to the Wies'n together and get to our reserved beer tent at Hacker Festzelt (confirmed) for 12 o'clock or 1 o'clock. We have reservations at our tables for around 4 hours, after that you're free to wander around the tents, have a power nap outside on the grass bank or have a look around Munich again. Maybe you just want to call it a day!
You should go to bed with those songs reverberating aroudn your head...'Country Roads.....'
See you in the morning!

Day 4 (Mondays & Fridays)
Oktoberfest Bye bye!
Unfortunately for you, this is your last days in Munich unless you have decided to stay longer! The tour ends at breakfast over coffee and tales of yesterdays exploits!
See you all again next year!
Have a good journey home. Prost!
