Jake-family

I am originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, where I graduated from the Episcopal School of Acadiana. Next, I attended Oglethorpe University, pursuing a degree in History and Philosophy with an emphasis on Western Civilization. After university, I decided to travel before following my likely career in the fast food industry. The rest is history; as the saying goes, “I got stuck” in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The natural beauty, amazing people, and unbelievable history have mesmerized me for over sixteen years. I opened ATG in 2010 to guide English speaking travelers who want to experience the Bavaria that has captured my heart and soul. I am passionate about my clients and their needs and wants which is why we focus on small group tours and private tours.
