Definitely a must see/do for your trip to Munich. The bus trip, while long, offers views of the beautiful Bavarian hills. Dress warmly for the top of the mountain and bring a good camera. It's amazing. I wish there was a it more time at the peek or some time to see the village below but others great experience.


As directed by the customer support request to have a front seat due to motion sickness, we arrived very early and negotiated with the driver to put our belongings in the bus early and on the front seat (on the passenger side). We then alighted the bus and waited in the queue for our tour. We were second in line. We waited for the tour guide to arrive and proceeded to board the bus. He had put his coat and bag on top of ours, so the driver put the coat in the rack above. The first people in the queue had chosen the other front seat behind the driver. When the tour guide got on the bus, he started yelling at us in front of everyone on the bus, saying that we could not sit there and that it is his seat and his stuff was on the seat first. The driver did not clarify the situation and it was terribly embarrassing. I asked about my motion sickness and he said he didn’t care. My partner was upset and followed the guide off the bus to try and explain what had happened. The tour guide would have none of this and even said he would not proceed with the tour if we didn’t move. He eventually sat in the provided jump seat at the front and said at the top of his voice that I had better not vomit on him. At this point I was very distressed and could not enjoy the day. He threw the maps of Zugspitze at us. To make the experience worse, he then proceeded to use his vape all the way in the bus and the driver was constantly on his phone and texting.


The views were amazing, excellent climate. Took many photos...Guide was excellent to coordinate and provide information.

Excellent tour and the trip was very comfortable . The guide explained everything related to the place on the way . I very much advice this to anyone visiting germany who don’t want to go through the hassle of changing trains


We took the Zugspitz tour and our guide was Sven. Sven was an excellent guide- Funny, Very knowledgeable and took good care. Very memorable one day trip.


The trip to Zugspitze from Munich was through some beautiful Bavarian countryside which made the bus ride pass quickly. It was a beautiful sunny day. The tour guide Elizabeth was very knowledgeable and well organized and kept the tour running on time. She knew how everything operated and gave us valuable tips to get the best out of the day. The cable car ride was breathtaking and then the view from the top was also. There was plenty of food options on top. The day was mild so no need to rug up. We travelled back down on the cog railway and our driver Benau got us back to Munich in good time through some heavy traffic.


Do NOT book with this company, it’s fake. The van was not at the location and when I asked the nearby Gray line tour for a refund, they said “there’s nothing we can do.” Waste of $130. E-mailed Viator for a refund as well and they told me I would not get a refund.


Beautiful scenery and photo opps of the mountains. The area is charming and worth a couple days while in Germany!


Absolutely amazing views totally worth spent the day in Bavarian Alps . View are beautiful from any vantage points


the view was beautiful and we had perfect weather. Our tour guide Elisabeth was very pleasant and organised and provided us with interesting information and useful tips.
