References 2007 - Johns Bavarian Tours

Welcome to my references page; all my clients opinions are important to me.
After you have completed your tour, please send me an email with your personal commentary of our time together. 

Allow me to help plan your vacation in Bavaria from beginning to end!


Thank you for helping me on such short notice. With the option to visit any city in Europe for the weekend, I eventually decided upon Munich. I had second thoughts about my decision on my way there.
You were right on on where to go to lunch after Dachau. The driving tour you gave me satisfied my interests with the city itself.
Where, I must say, you set yourself apart was on Sunday. That made the trip entirely worthwhile.
The drive to the Bavarian Alps, the castles and lunch were all fantastic.
When I arrived at my hotel, I saw the options a visitor has to tour the region. I can't see any guide being as efficient and informative as you.
With my limited time, I really appreciated that. I grow more fond of our trip on Sunday as each day passes.

One of your clients described you as a "partner" not a guide. That was my feeling as well.

Dear John,
Your tours exceeded every expectation and then some. It is almost impossible to put into words the great adventures we had for the two days traversing Bavaria and surrounding areas.
It was a dream come true; I have envisioned a memorable visit to Bavaria since studying German in high school so many years ago. Your approach to providing personalized and informative information and visiting off-the-beaten-path of tourist sights even in the touristy places was outstanding and most memorable.
Besides being a guide, you were a travel partner making sure that all that could be seen was seen and even then some. Even then we encountered the unexpected with the festival in Dinkelsbuhl and the antique auto touring club. Visiting Bavaria and Ludwig's domain were spectacular and the diversion into Austria and that fabulous lunch were most memorable.
Our day in the Bavarian Alps was one of the highlights of my life; besides the fabulous castles and their pomp and circumstance, the rococo churches were jaw dropping experiences. The vast number of churches we entered together with you're knowledge and expertise on these locales made these too very memorable days in my life.
And unequivocally, your personality, talents, and varied interests in art, scuba diving, and motorcycling made you a perfect travel companion. Thanks too for the great luncheon sights. Lunch in Austria was amazing. Bottom line: Anyone who skips an opportunity to travel in Munich and Bavaria Germany with you is settling for only the ordinary. You provide the extraordinary, and I thank you very much for sharing your expertise and life achievements with me. Thanks too for the opportunity to see you art work up close and personal.

Now I have the task of processing and titling over 500 pictures from my Danube and Bavarian vacation. That will be tedious I am sure. I like to tell a story as the trip evolves and I try to weave in the history of the places as well. That way family and friends many of whom will never travel to these places will have an opportunity to see and learn as well.

While I do not know if I will be back to Germany and Munich anytime soon, rest assured I will let you know if that should happen. Likewise if you find yourself back in the US and in particular anywhere in the Midwest or even the St. Louis area, be sure to let me know. It would be great to have you here for a visit or meet you where ever.

Best wishes and million + thanks for sharing your knowledge and talents with me for two wonderful days. Your preliminary and detailed information when I inquired about your tours was excellent and immediately gave me confidence that I had found a gem in the rough of all the internet advertising on sightseeing in Bavaria.

Thanks again John - our two days of travel around southern Germany was exciting and has created exceptional lifetime memories for me. Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime."

Connie and I were very happy with your guide services and driving skills in and around Munich.
You respected our wishes, took us to fine restaurants, an the pace of our tours was just right-we never felt rushed.
The Ludwig castle tour was the best day of our entire two week vacation. Best of luck. Regards.

Dear John
Just to say that we arrived home safely and both agree that our couple of days with you were the most enjoyable of the entire trip.
We can't thank you enough for your help and assistance, especially with the pictures (which turned out fine).
Many Many Thanks and will keep in touch.
Take Care

Dear John
My father and I had a wonderful time on our trip and I appreciate your patience and understanding with his mobility issues. I know we probably had to be the most boring two days you have spent with customers, but he had a fabulous time.
I was able to make numerous photos and plan to do a calendar for his birthday in April. Personally, I loved Munich and hope to be able to return one day, possibly at a warmer time as I think it would be a great place to walk and bike.
I was so layered that I was beginning to feel like one of the sausages that appear everywhere, but then again the Christmas Markets and atmosphere were wonderful. Truly enjoyed the artisan's market you directed us to and I was able to find some wonderful earrings (something I always seem to buy on trips.)
I do believe the BMW visit was among my favorites, thanks for taking us there.

Anyway, thank you again for giving my father, and me, a view of Munich.

Dear John,
Thanks so much for the wonderful day, you were very fun. It was one of the highlights of our trip, we all agreed that it was worth every penny.
I should have sent you an email earlier but we jumped right into Christmas when we got home. We will be coming again next year, I hope you are still available when we finally make our plans.
Thanks again, I will certainly recommend you to my friends.

Thanks again, Jackie

Dear John,
Our recent trip to Munich was very enjoyable. A sincere thanks goes to you for making it so memorable. Your extensive knowledge of Bavarian history and culture gave us a rare insight, about which we would never have known otherwise.
The attention you paid to each of our specific needs was very much appreciated and we will certainly recommend you to anyone we know visiting Munich.
