Hang Gliding in Interlaken
The Bees will happily pick you up at your hotel or city center. We then take a short scenic drive to take-off, where we set up the gliders while you enjoy the views. After we gear up and do some brief instructions – 3 , 2 , 1 we are off to soar the Alps! Landing on the wheels in the middle of town is a ground rush yet soft and easy.
Sightseeing helicopter flight
So take to the skies for a sightseeing flight above the Bernese Oberland. A bird’s eye view from a helicopter or light aircraft opens up unrivalled views of the Interlaken holiday region. The sky’s also the limit when it comes to the choice of flights. So what will it be: a sightseeing flight around the mountain peaks, over Lakes Thun and Brienz, or a landing among the glaciers?

3 hour private guided walking tour of Munich
hour pleasant stroll through Munich’s beautiful and historical Altstadt and a look back at the city’s rich 857 year history. You will visit all the major highlights of the city including Marienplatz, the Frauenkirche, Alter Peter Church, Hofbräuhaus, Viktualienmarkt, National Theater, the Residenz and Odeonsplatz. You will be able to watch the famous Glockenspiel, and lunch at the Viktualienmarkt or one of the many beer halls or Bavarian guests houses. (I can suggest some of my favourite eateries in town).
We can also include a visit to the BMW WELT and Olympic Park if you wish.
We will begin the tour in Munich’s heart « MARIENPLATZ », the main square where the city began, where we will later have an opportunity to watch the famous Glockenspiel. From there we will take a gentle stroll through the Viktualienmarkt (the city market place), the world famous Hofbräuhaus beerhall, continue on to Odeonsplatz and the Residenz palace, and visit Munich’s 15th century cathedral, the Frauenkirche.
Full Day private Excursion to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein with a Local Guide
Your local guide will collect you from your accommodation in Munich for a full day excursion to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein, in a private vehicle. The vehicle will be at your disposal for the duration of the service and your local guide will remain with you throughout the tour. Your guide will introduce you to the main sights of Linderhof and Neuschwanstein, but will also be happy to discuss any specific sightseeing requirements with you. You can expect your local guide to have a good overall knowledge of the city sights in Linderhof and features of Neuschwanstein but if you require exceptionally in-depth commentary on a particular attraction, this may not be possible. At the end of the tour, you will be returned to your accommodation in Munich.
Departing Munich, visit the smallest of three royal castles, Linderhof, which was built by King Ludwig II during the 19th century as a hunting lodge. Built in French Rococo style, the castle has a Moorish pavilion which can be visited during your one hour stay. You have the option to join a guided tour of the interior of Linderhof.
On the approach to Neuschwanstein, it will quickly become clear as to why this magnificent neo-Romanesque style castle is the most well known castle in the world. It appears through the mist like something out of a fairytale, and you will not be surprised to hear that the man who conceived its design – King Ludwig II, was considered quite eccentric. If it all seems very familiar, it may be because the castle was the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle.
This tour does not include entrance fees. Local guides enter many attractions free of charge, but where you require your guide to accompany you into any attractions, you may be asked to cover the guide’s costs as well as your own
