We like to do walking tours everywhere we go, and they are almost always excellent, but Jake was beyond that. Historians always make the tours the best, and Jake is a good one. He knows from the founding of the town, through its joining, to today. Very flexible, we wanted to tour Friday afternoon and we did, from 2 to... More

Jake's personalized attention and tour-tailoring to our daughters' ages really made our tour of Neuschwanstein something special. His insight into the area and it's intriguing history really brought the castle to life. Found all his tips were winners and he's a genuinely nice guy to boot! We will return.

Jake was very entertaining and very knowledgeable. I wish we had more time to spend with him. He made the tour experience very fun. He was very accommodating, funny, and really easy to spend a day with. If I had the time I would do all of his many tours he offers. We'll see you again Jake!

If you are planning on booking a travel guide and want someone who can tell you the history backwards and forwards AND have a beer with and just enjoy, this is your guy. We found Jake by doing a little research on Trip Advisor and we were so happy we did. He responds quickly to emails when you are setting... More

We did 2 tours with Jake and loved them. We were a group of 5 adults and 4 kids (14,14,12 and 11). Jake read the group well accommodated every age group so well and engaged the kids so much that they learnt so much about the history of Garmisch Partenkirchen and Barvaria over the two days. We really enjoyed learning... More

...Jake is your guy. His knowledge of the region is outstanding. If you really want to learn the history and have those stories come to life, he is worth the splurge. I'd hire him again for sure.

Jake is a tour guide extraordinaire! He took my husband and I on a half day walking tour of Munich in late October, showing us important landmarks, churches and commercial areas. We especially enjoyed our stop for refreshments at the Hofbrauhaus. The next day we took the train to Garmisch (after Jake showed us exactly how to buy tickets and... More

We arranged with Jake for an all day walking tour of GaP, including Partnach Gorge (more on that in a minute). Though we've been to GaP before and walked around on our own, the walk-about with Jake added so much more to our experience. His love of history, mixed with his knowledge of all things local, was a great beginning... More

I booked a one day tour of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the Zugspitze mountain with Jake in October 2014. Jake is a treasure trove of historical minutiae and cultural knowledge about Bavaria. Jake has an almost encyclopedic knowledge about the history of the various Bavarian royal families, disparate myths and legends, as well as the architectural, political and religious history of the...
