Jake D.

Ohlstadt, Bavaria, Germany

Hello everyone! My name is Jake. I am originally from the deep south of the United States but have spent the past twenty one years living and traveling in Europe.

Seventeen of those years I have been fortunate enough to call Garmisch-Partenkirchen home. I am married to a beautiful Bavarian girl and have an amazing family who make me smile every day.

During the past thirteen years I have worked as a private and contracted tour guide showing travelers the beauty of southern Bavaria. I love where I live and it shows in my tours.

I studied European history at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta Georgia and adore sharing what I have learned there and here with anyone who will listen.

If you are looking for someone to guide you through the amazing beauty and history of Bavaria. I am your man.

A Recent Review of this guide

Jake is in his element. Story telling, love of his adopted homeland and beer drinking. He is good friends with the brew master. This was a fun afternoon trip. The beer was tasty and the food wonderful. A nice train ride from Munich and we felt like we got the VIP treatment all the way around.
