Christmas in Bavaria & Austria
Our trip to Bavaria and Austria in December 2017 came together at the very last minute, leading to a hectic scramble whilst we attempted to plan our days. We were quite fortunate to have found John - he was able to fit us into his schedule during Christmas week, and on less than a week's notice.
John expertly guided us on city tours of Munich and Salzburg, and visits to several castles, cathedrals & chapels. Remarkably, John was able to secure tickets to Neuschwanstein, which had been sold out; as an experienced guide, he was able to work with his contacts and make the tour happen for us.
We found John to be engaging, well-educated and informative, and his tours excellent value for money. Many thanks John!
Neuschwanstein and the Austrain Alps
We enjoyed the tour of Neuschwantstein and Linderhof Palace in the Austrian Alps for our group of 33 travellers from Malaysia. Lunch at Hotel Ernberg was also very nice indeed.

Awesome time in Bavaria with Uncle John!
I was in Germany from the 1st to the 10th of June, and Uncle John was our tour guide for the whole trip.
Uncle John was very friendly all the time and speaks very fluent English. He also cracked a lot of jokes and was very hilarious. He also often takes my family out to very high-quality restaurants for meals which were recommended for tourists, and I really love the delicious and scrumptious food.
Another thing I like about Uncle John’s tour is the visit to the three castles King Ludwig II built: Neuschwanstein, Linderhof and Herren Chiemsee. I got to know more about how these castles were built and what happened during the 19th century through the brief explanations by Uncle John. One more tourist attraction I like is the Eremitage in Bayreuth. One of the most interesting part of the Eremitage was the “Water Games”. The water in the fountain was controlled by natural pressure and had no manmade pumps. It was really an interesting and a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me.
The last thing that really stood out for me was Garmisch. My family took a massive cable car with Uncle John up to the alps. There was snow everywhere up the mountains even during summer. I went for snow sledding and played with snowballs with my father. It was the most exciting day of my life as it was my first time playing with real snow.
I strongly recommend Uncle John to travellers who have an interest in touring Bavaria!

The best investment you could make! John was amazing!
John - We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful trip you provided for us. Your care, attention, and knowledge were outstanding and we look forward to seeing you again on our next trip.
Review - Our experience with John far exceeded anything I’d hoped, and our few days together was the highlight of our trip. I found John via online reviews and was a little nervous about booking with an unknown person, but I’m happy I did. John called prior to our trip and I liked him instantly.
He made an excellent hotel recommendation, and saved us from staying in the wrong part of town. He met us at the airport and gave us a lovely tour of Munich. We quickly discovered that he was not only well versed as a guide, but took exceptional care of us as clients.
We spent the next day touring castles, and his knowledge of not only the location but the employees of the sites, helped us repeatedly. He knew how to manage the lines so we didn’t waste time. He knew the best places to eat, for scenic viewing, and where to get the best deals shopping.
Although I wasn’t planning another trip to Germany any time soon, I am now planning another trip in the hopes that I can hire John again.
As someone with very high standards, I can honestly say he not only met my expectations, but exceeded them.
Thank you for being our super guide!
