About Us

A Friend in Munich offers private tours in and around Munich. A local guide takes you around, shows you the highlights and hidden treasures, and tells you about the past and the present. Whether you are by yourself, with family, or with a group, we offer Munich walking tours, car and coach tours, and excursions to the beautiful countryside around the city.

My name is Jo Eckardt, and after living and working in the US, mainly in New York, I returned to Germany in 2001. I started my first touring company in 2004 in Berlin. When I found that many of my clients also wanted to visit Munich, and since I spend a lot of time down there also, I began offering tours in Bavaria as well. Our aim is to make you feel like you’re staying with friends. We will advise on where to stay, what to see, and where to get those special souvenirs you’re looking for. What we love best is to customize your tour so that you will have the best tour possible!
