Has anyone tried these types of tours?

I am looking for good tour recommendations in the following cities which I am visiting in May, either some sort of audio walking tour for my iPod or an organized tour.

Amsterdam
Antwerp
Aachen
Rhine Valley (Stuttgart/Ulm areas)
Neuschwanstien castle in Hohenschwangau
Munich
Salzburg
Melk Abbey in Melk
Vienna
Bratistlava
Prague
Berlin

Thanks for any info,
Cheers!

That's a great idea!!!
I know they have some kind of audio tour you can download if you have a Garmin GPS. But, I haven't heard of any ipod tours. Anyone out there have any info?

well, the cost of these tours is pretty good $5-$20 or so, and you also get a map that goes along with the commentary. I've taken many guided tours and the single biggest drawback is that I can't pause the tour incase I have to take a break or get that perfect camera shot. And since I take many pics sometimes I have to miss out on some of the commentary and have to hurry to rejoin the group. This iPod tour is a great idea and I want to give it a shot.

have been checking out Ipod tours for Rome and there are several out there that are free--you just have to search and see what you can find
sometimes they are on travel web sites and don't automaticcly come up if Googling

To report, I did the audio tours in Munich, Vienna and Prague. For Munich I chose audiotravel mp3 Audio Tours - Mobile Phone City Guides - Travel Guides which was SUPERB! This is an audio tour that I HIGHLY recommend, it is just fantastic. The Vienna tour I did with Tour Vienna Austria With Audioguide | mp3 | IPod | Download | which was just average. In Prague I chose Audio tours | IPOD tours | MP3 tours - Tourcaster which was average.
