My husband and I recently spent a week based in Garmisch and took most of the tours Jake offers. He specializes in small groups and will gladly take just 2 people on an all-day tour of castles and Baroque churches. He went out of his way to find things we especially wanted to see, such as Asam brothers churches. He... More

My wife and I were staying in Garmisch and saw the reviews for Jake online. We wanted to book a mountain tour and had planned to do that with Jake. Unfortunately, it was rainy and cloudy the day of our trip. Fortunately, Jake had a backup plan and off we went to a castle and monastery tour that ended up... More

My husband, adult son and I took the Murnau brewery tour at Griesbrau with Jake. He met us at our hotel in Garmisch and gave us a fascinating history lesson on the way to Murnau. Wolfgang the brewer then gave a lesson on how he makes the beers featured at Griesbrau, with many samples along the way. At the end... More

We contacted Jake about a week before our vacation after seeing other families at our duty station raving about their experiences with All Things Garmisch. I sent Jake a message telling him we have a larger family (7 kids ranging in ages 8 months to 13 years), are on a budget, love history, and homeschool and asked him what he... More

What an amazing experience - my husband and I chose to do a day tour of Salzburg with Jake, and he really made it memorable. He took us to all the sights and despite the weather being a little rainy and grey, the day was wonderful and we learned so much about the area and Salzburg's history. Jake went out... More

After reading so many favorable reviews reviews about Jake and his personalized tours, I decided to splurge and book a tour for me and my two daughters. Best decision I made!! The tour began with a pick up at our hotel in Munich, which was a huge convenience and luxury...no dealing with train and bus connections for what we had... More

In high hopes of seeing mountains after previous visits to Germany largely cloaked in thick cloud cover, I was delighted to find a clear day to venture to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. I was able to book with Jake in the last minute, and he so graciously welcomed me to tour the next day. I particularly wanted to see the "Klamm"-the gorge in... More

Christmas walking tour and dinner in Garmisch Partenkirchen was the highlight of our holiday. Jake is an American who has lived in Germany for many years, and knows the history better than 99% of the locals. He also shares lots of WWII history the locals would rather not talk about. Very energetic, informative, and entertaining. Best Christmas dinner ever, and... More

This was my second time touring with Jake -- the first time was in Munich and this time I went to his turf in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen area. I just wanted a general tour of the area. What I got was a really incredible day/evening experience. With Jake, you think you're just hanging out with a member of the family who... More

Two month European trip. One month into, this American found exceptional fortune, Jake - fluent, engaging, knowledgable and a gentleman; one whose personal experience provides a unique humility to Bavaria, European culture/history/places old and new and, that of North America. His ability to wrap this together in story-like form, if interested, is artful and insightful. Or, simply point to point,... More
