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
On a very 'miserable' weather day, Jake made a tour of Munich very pleasurable. Full of history delivered with great humour, the tour was not only informative and detailed, but fun. If you are not really interested in Munich, but rather just collecting passport stamps, I would not advise, but if you really want information Jake would be hard to beat. His enthusiastic delivery and knowledge would appeal to all ages and his recommendations for places to stop, eat/drink, are top notch. Highly recommend.
