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

We had six tours with Jake over a 15 day trip. Believe everything you read. He is an amazing storyteller and made each trip enjoyable. We had the opportunity to do an extra trip with him and my son gave up paragliding to hear more of his stories. One of our days it was heavy rains. He changed our plans... More

Jake picked us up in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and drove us to Neuschwanstein Castle and back for the day. We can only describe Jake as one of our best driver guides ever in our many trips to Europe. His knowledge of the area and history is truly impressive, and to add to his knowledge he does a great job of telling a... More

We travelled four different days with Jake from our base in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. From arranging a birthday dinner to touring G-P, Neuschwanstein, Innsbruck and Munich, Jake was an expert. He seems to know everyone which helped everywhere and provided an insider's view of the sites we visited. His range of knowledge from history to art and customs is impressive. A... More

As Jake may tell you himself jokingly, "He is kind of a big deal" Lol. And for good reason. Jake is a wealth of historical knowledge, and one of the best tour guides I have ever encountered. Garmish-Partenkirchen is beautiful and Jake takes it to another level with the sites, food and drinks. Don't hesitate. Book a tour.

I highly suggest doing a tour with Jake! He helps you design a day trip that maximizes your time in Bavaria. He has a lot of tour choices on his website as well. He is easy to work with and truly knows his history. We would definitely go on another tour with Jake when we come back to Garmisch! You... More

He was quick to reply to my emails and even was able to change a tour with another group in order to accommodat the date we needed. Arrangements were very easy via email and Jake... More
