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

I had really high expectations after reading all these amazing reviews and Jake still exceeded my expectations. We had the most amazing two days with Jake! He is super friendly, outgoing, and knows his history! We combined the Partenkirchen walking tour with the famous brewery tour and also took the tour of the Neuschwanstein Castle on another day. Two very... More

I was lucky enough to 'tag along' with my older brother on a work trip to Europe. Our agenda allowed for just one day in Bavaria. We booked a tour with Jake. This was the best decision of the trip! Jake knows the land and has a vast knowledge and understanding of the area. Jake is outgoing, fun and a... More

We were a group of 4 looking for a Zugspitz + Garmisch Day Tour NOT on a Sunday. All groups seem to do this tour only on Sundays?!?! Upon researching, we were "matched" with Jake D. What a wonderful day we spent on the snow-capped mountain, in the highest biergarten in Germany, "stepping over" to Austria on the mountaintop and... More

OUTSTANDING TOURS BY JAKE!!! I just spend 2 days in Garmisch with Jake as our Tour Guide. It goes without saying that this part of the world is beautiful and full of history, but be prepared to be totally engrossed and entertained. Jake's love for history comes alive with his story telling....we really enjoyed him. Thanks Jake and hope to... More
