The slightly longer version is that I grew up in Macomb, Illinois, got interested in history while living in Atlanta, Georgia, and made my first trip to Europe in 1997. Before I'd even set foot in Germany I met my wife in Spain. I spent three years teaching History and German in the US and finished my M. A. in history before we returned to Germany.
I started working as an English-language tour guide about 8 years ago for companies in Munich as well as directly for the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial site. My wife, Dagmar, is originally from the Nuremberg area and I explored the city in my free time on our holidays and weekends there. The more I got to know the city the better I liked it. Although the Third Reich sites and courthouse are the initial draw for some people, the city has a thousand years of fascinating history, fantastic architecture, welcoming people and a bit of an independent streak that I could identify with.
I'd be happy to help you explore these places and enjoy your travels!
A Recent Review of this guide
Jason was relaxed, accommodating and very personable. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the city and also about Germany in general. You can tell he has a passion for what he does and a real love of history. I would definitely recommend Jason as a tour guide and gladly go on a tour led by him again
