My name is Frank Sahl and I have over 25 years of experience leading tours throughout Europe. I grew up in the Black Forest in Germany and currently reside in the Canary Islands. I have a passion for adventure so I am sure to weave new and exciting experiences into the tours I lead. Beyond my studies in German and Philosophy I have an affinity for languages. I speak eight languages, allowing me to connect with local culture and enrich the tour experience. My German efficiency is rivaled only by my wit, so expect plenty of engaging stories along the way. There is a reason my homeland has inspired fairy tales, and I love sharing it with groups.
