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...

We just used Jake and All Things Garmisch for a castle tour and he was AMAZING! He was so informative, knowledgeable, personable and fun to listen to. His stories were fun to listen to and hard not to get sucked into the moment. We can't wait to go back to Bavaria and use him again. Would recommend him to anyone... More

Hands down the best tour guide we have ever had in all of our travels- and we have traveled all over the world. We absolutely adored him. He was so much fun and made everyone feel at ease in his presence. We signed up for the one week Oktoberfest tour and had the time of our lives. And it didn't... More

My friends and I spent an entire week with Jake for Oktoberfest 2014. He created an absolutely terrific package that was both fun and educational. We provided him with some guidelines for what we wanted to do while in Germany, and what he produced and executed was simply fantastic. I also appreciated his willingness to help with individual requests or... More

Myself and 3 colleagues came to Garmisch to attend a conference. We booked a castle tour the day before the conference started with All Things Garmisch. Our tour guide, Jake, was just fantastic. We could tell that he was a history buff and his knowledge of the local history was second to none. We were so pleased with the castle... More

Jake is amazingly knowledgable man - I don't think you could get a more informative tour unless you speak German! Highly Recommended.

Jake is a fantastic tour guide! There were only four of us and we were able to be flexible with our schedule so Jake could fit us in on short notice. He is very well educated on the history of the area and could answer all of our questions. He made history come alive and our two teen-age sons really... More

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
