Germany is more than my favorite destination. It's my passion. And it's my mission to share with you the local and authentic Germany as only a local would know it. I've had the incredible opportunity to study and work here, to learn to speak fluent German, and to travel throughout this vibrant and diverse country. In fact, this on-the-ground experience proved to be the perfect segue for me into the travel industry because now my clients can benefit from my firsthand experience of the real Germany. I've driven the wine roads and the autobahn, hiked and skied the Black Forest and mountains of Bavaria, dined in some of Germany's best local restaurants, enjoyed stays in a variety of accommodations, and absorbed the culture and heritage of Germany's major festivals and markets - each showcasing a unique lifestyle. All this in-depth learning and travel has ensured I am an expert on all things German.

I want you to experience Germany as I have - as a local - not a tourist. Rest assured that I can craft an itinerary to match your personality and interests with the most authentic one-of- a-kind opportunities for you to become totally immersed in this dynamic, vibrant destination!

The Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce were remarkable. A very minor disappointment was the number of Zion trails closed. Obviously, not Karen's fault.
