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
Worth every penny! Jake captivated our audience of 5, including three teens, with stories of King Ludwig, his awe-inspiring castle, and his ultimate demise! We were all ears and hooked on his delivery. Honestly, this guy should've been an actor. Picked us up at our hotel, knew every shortcut imaginable, knew everyone at the castle and how to make the most of our time and trip. He made a stop for my kids at an alpine slide which they thought was a highlight of Germany! Jake just gets it. Phenomenal!
