We had a wonderful time on our carriage tour of Garmisch! Jake told us many stories of the rich history of the area on the way to meet the carriage and was great with our young kids. This was a great way to take in all of the sights and my whole family loved it. I would absolutely book another tour with Jake and All Things Garmisch!

I’d love to convey how absolutely amazing the Krampus tour is, but this tour is something one must experience first hand. There is no way to describe the feeling you get when you hear the bells clank knowing Krampus is near. I can’t adequately describe the bit of fear followed by the rush you get when Krampus comes near you, looks at you and maybe smacks you with a branch. It is exciting and invigorating! You walk away feeling like the travelers you just met are your teammates and partners in battle regaling tales of narrowly escaping Krampus, or of being scared to get flogged as Krampus approaches but instead being marked with coal on the face.
As a solo female traveler in her 40s, I can attest to the excellent tour content, the safety, the positive group dynamic, and the sound logistics and communication of Jake, Drew and All Things Garmisch. I saw Jake and Drew oversee care for a fellow traveler who needed an emergency room and then a specialist appointment. They handled the situation appropriately and without incident. As a former clinical liaison, I was glad to see it.
Our group was the Krampus Tour and we mingled with the Christmas Market tour also. The ages of people on our Krampus Tour spanned 30s to 70s, and it seemed most of us were 40s and 50s, and I’d say there’s something for everyone. Some people kept to their family or group while many of us became friends and spent time eating street food, shopping together and occasionally shutting down bars.
This trip is perfect for most people whether seasoned travelers, solo travelers, female travelers, and couples or friend groups old and young. I would advise you to have adequate mobility as there are stairs to climb and hills to walk. This is not appropriate for the mobility impaired, but that is the only restriction I’d advise.

The VIP tour was a little pricey, but well worth the experience. Angus the tour guide was an excellent host. Great time, great people.

Jake and his wonderful team, Monya, Drew were tons of fun, very well organized, and very adaptable. They were sure to budget for unexpected delays, like a few stragglers getting out of bed a few mins late, or traffic delays, etc. He would pick up on our individual interests and think hard about how to cater to them to make our trip really special and meaningful.
Jake was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer just about any question we could think of, as well as provide interesting historical and cultural insights.

5 Stars, 10 out of 10, 100%!!! Whatever metric you use, this trip gets the highest score. I went on the Oktoberfest trip with a group of 11 others and we all agreed that it was one of the best trips of our lives! The airport pickups were thoughtful and staying in Garmisch was an excellent idea. Jake planned several activities for our group and they were all really fun. Highlights include - 3 days at Oktoberfest with table reservations (spread out over the 10 days), two castle tours, hot air balloon ride, cable car rides up the German alps, visits to breweries, a really fun apple strudel class followed by a 6 course dinner with beer pairing, and a Mozart concert in Salzburg in a building constructed in the 600s. The accommodations were perfect, and once we landed we didn't have to worry about a thing. If you are looking for a fun way to enjoy Oktoberfest without the hassle of planning a trip thru a foreign country, this is it. It was absolutely worth it. Prost!

Jake was an incredible guide. Him being an obvious history buff my wife and I learned so much about Austrian and Bavaria royal families and the decisions they made to hold their countries together. Jake also provided deeper insights into what King Ludwig was like and what helped to shape the decisions he made.

I could not imagine going to Neuschwanstein Castle without a guide like Jake and so glad we made the investment.

My husband and I booked a 10 day "Bavarian Beer Vacation" trip with Jake. Included were tours of Garmish-Partenkirchen, Neuschwanstein, breweries, Zugspitze, Herrenchimsee Palace, Oberammagau, Munich, Saltzburg, and Sound of Music. In addition, we took a hot air balloon ride, took an apple strudel making class, went to a Mozart Concert, and attended Oktoberfest twice with table reservations in the tents.

Jake is incredibly knowledgeable and his love for the content he shares is evident in his storytelling. My husband and I were put with a small group of 11 other people making the tour feel friendly and intimate. On our trip we ate delicious Bavarian food, drank many beers, learned a ton of history, and marveled in the beauty of Germany and Austria. We had THE best time and were sad to be leaving at the end of our trip.

David was a great guide and gave us lots of information about the fascinating castle and the beautiful region- he was easy going and fun. The tour gives a nice day long overview of the area and the castle and church were highlights - we recommend this tour as a great way to see the castle with a minimum of hassle and then a leisurely tour of the gorgeous area .

Beautiful little tourist town in picturesque setting. Tour through castle is limited and almost feels like a movie set. But so worth the drive and scenery in particular.
