If you are visiting Bavaria, you can’t do better than let Jake Doherty handle your tours. He is both knowledgeable and entertaining. He makes history come alive. It was a return trip for me as a group leader to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and there was a world of difference from just walking through old Partenkirchen at night and doing it with Jake. You’ll come back with more than photos of a pretty old buildings; you’ll have a sense of the people who walked these streets before you, and what happened here. Jake kept our group busy all week with a brewery tour in Murnau, all day bus tour to the Neuschwanstein and Hoenschwangau castles, Weiskirche, Omerammagau, and the Ettal Monastery, a Munich walking tour and the fun Bavarian Games in the evening. I have been organizing annual European trips for my ski club for 13 years, and reading about Jake on TA was a real find!
