Dialed in for Oktoberfest 2009!


So, I booked my roundtrip flight to Munich from London a while back, but I officially have everything in order as of now! Our flight from LGW leaves on the 24th in the morning, and we have booked a bus from Fulham to LGW with EasyBus! We also got EasyBus tickets once we return to take us back to Central London. Gatwick airport is about 70 minutes from Central London, so public transportation was a must! Roundtrip tickets with EasyBus (to and from the airport) were around £13, plus the cost to Tube it from Covent Garden to Fulham (about a 30 minute journey). EasyJet also allows you to check-in for your flight up to 60 days in advance, so I checked in and printed my boarding pass this morning! Now that all of that is paid for and in order, Oktoberfest is sure to be an amazingly fun time!

We’ve been looking into Mike’s Bike Tours, which runs in both Munich and in Amsterdam, for a fun, informational bike tour of Munich. After checking out all of there offerings, we found the most amazing full day tour of Neuschwanstein Castle, which takes a scenic trip through the countryside, a trek through a waterfall and gorge and ultimately a tour of this amazingly gorgeous fairytale castle.

The tour runs full time during Oktoberfest and is a full day tour with pick-up and drop-off in central Munich. The entire tour costs 39 Euros (hostelers with a receipt get a discount; normally it’s around 48 Euros) and includes the journey by bus/train and the bike ride. Considering the half day tour costs 18 Euros and only covers the central part of Munich (still beautiful!), we’re leaning towards the full-day extravaganza to get the most out of our brief stint in Munich. I still can’t believe that I’ll be seeing all of this amazingness first-hand. I’ll keep you guys posted with amazing photos & blogs about everything!

Has anyone done a tour like this before? What did you think?
