We spent 2 full days with Jake in July. It truly was the highlight to our Bavarian adventure. There is no way we would have had the experience we did with Jake on our own. Jake is a great story teller and kept us all entertained (2 adults/2 teens). He is fun, flexible, knowledgeable, humorous, and definitely goes above and... More

Jake was born in southern USA so he radiates hospitality. We were in Garmisch for an armed forces recreation reunion and Jake and Drew took us on a bus tour. Made sure the reunion attendees saw places dear to their time spent in Garmisch decades ago. Fantastic guide.

My husband and I stayed in Garmisch, May 28-31, 2015. The hotel we were staying at "Atlas Post Hotel" recommended Jake Doherty as a personal tour guide. Wow, if you are looking for a guide that knows history, detailed information and numerous facts of Garmisch Partenkirchen, Jake is the perfect guide. We wanted to see Neuschwanstein Castle (King Ludwig). Jake... More

We recently did a family trip (6 adults, 5 grandchildren) in Bavaria, and Jake was our guide. I am so happy we had this opportunity with Jake because the time with him was truly the highlight of our trip. He has a great personality and lots of enthusiasm for his work--always sharing interesting stories, useful tips, and things that many... More

I read many of the previous reviews and was encouraged that Jake would deliver as promised. He is exactly like the reviews that have been posted. We did the 2 hour evening Partenkirchen walking tour and full day Linderhoff tour (included other stops..). He is personable and engaging. He kept my 11 and 14 year old interested in the history...

We spent a whole day with Jake with our own 'custom-made' tour. We started out with a short walking tour of Garmisch and then headed to the top of the Zugspitze. After that, we took Jake's super fun Brewery Tour. Jake was very informative and I learned more about Garmisch, Bavaria and beer that day than I had from living... More

Our family spent the week with Jake touring Munich and the surrounding attractions in Southern Bavaria / Austria. It was an awesome personalized experience, which made the whole week a truly memorible experience for us all. Jake was great when accommodating our various schedules and requests, and made the whole trip fun, informative, and stress free. We will never go... More

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!
