I spent three years stationed in Germany while in the army and thought I knew my way around. We took three tours with Jake and learned more about Germany than I did in the tree years I lived there. The tours were customized to our wants. I'm already looking forward to my next visit. I will definably be calling Jake,.

Jake was a fantastic tour guide through Neuschwanstein and Garmisch. He was entertaining for our family of 5 which included three teenagers and engaged them in the whole story of King Ludwig, the castle, German history and much, much more. His dramatic presentation (complete with surprise gestures, funny voices, etc.) brought German history to life for all of us. Additionally,... More

I was fortunate enough to go on several tours with All Things Garmisch and Jake during a recent trip to Garmisch-Partenkirchen with friends. Jake kept us all entertained with his vast and in-depth knowledge of the area and it's history. I was so happy to find that he wasn't a cookie cutter type tour guide who was scripted, therefore we...

Jake the tour guide is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Bavarian history. He filled our heads full on interesting historical stories and our bellies full of local beer! Even when we were not on his tour and became stuck in Munich during the shooting, he was able to send taxis from Garmisch to pick us up and whisk us back... More

You can't but love this fabulous town. Unfortunately, I could not stay more than a day in it so I didn't see much. But, I totally loved it. Make sure to visit it, if you are in Germany.

My wife and I recently visited Bavaria and had the pleasure of taking a couple of tours with Jake, and we were beyond pleased with the experience! He was incredibly knowledgeable about the places we were visiting, but also about other sights we happened to see along the way that weren't on the itinerary. Most impressive, he was able to...

We did a full day private tour to Oberammergau, the Ettal Monastery, and Neuschwanstein Castle. It was the best day of our vacation. First, Jake went out of his way to show my husband the old General Patton Hotel where he stayed 40 years ago. Then, when the road to Neuschwanstein was unexpectedly closed, Jake reversed the itinerary, called his... More

A large group of us reunited in Garmisch this past week and had such a great time. Jake took us out on a bike tour of Partenkirchen, up the partnachklamm, linderhof, staffelsee, brewery tour at Grausbrau and many delicious restaurants. Jakes knowledge of Bavarian history is immense and the way he tells it keeps you interested and entertained. I highly... More
