We spent a day with Jake to do the Zugspitze and Partnach Gorge. We had an overcast day, but still made the best of things! He offered up alternatives, but we decided to go ahead and go to the top of the Zugspitze anyway. Jake knows a lot about the history of the area – both the Bavarian and Austrian... More

Jake is a wonderful tour guide! I met him sitting having a beer and he invited me to a brewery tour he was doing the next. I learned a lot about the country history and about beer. Drew was there as well. Both great guys! You won't be disappointed with any of the tours you choose. I definitely recommend the... More

Our family of 6 used Jake for a day tour to the Partnach Gorge and the Zugspitze peak. It was a highlight of our trip to Germany. He made it fun and interesting, and was totally focused on the best use of our time. It was cloudy on the mountain, and he kept calling a friend to see if the... More

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
