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

My wife and I were staying in Garmisch and saw the reviews for Jake online. We wanted to book a mountain tour and had planned to do that with Jake. Unfortunately, it was rainy and cloudy the day of our trip. Fortunately, Jake had a backup plan and off we went to a castle and monastery tour that ended up... More

My husband, adult son and I took the Murnau brewery tour at Griesbrau with Jake. He met us at our hotel in Garmisch and gave us a fascinating history lesson on the way to Murnau. Wolfgang the brewer then gave a lesson on how he makes the beers featured at Griesbrau, with many samples along the way. At the end... More
