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 three years living and traveling in Europe.

Eighteen 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

Awesome day we will never forget! Having Jake guide us expanded our experience to an unimaginable level. He was extremely attentive, giving great snowboarding tips to my daughter, and was even able to accommodate my wife who did not ski. My 16 year daughter says it was her best day ever! Thank you Jake!
