Jack Baumann

Jack Baumann has traveled frequently since he was a child, which sparked a passion for adventure, history, and cultural exchange. It was from this love of culture and adventure that brought Jack to the U.K. to study for his Masters in Ancient Greek and Roman Archaeology. While studying in Wales, he traveled around Europe by himself often, and it was here that the idea for Guidester was born. After returning home and working a full time job for two years, Jack was able to scrape together enough money to form a company and begin his great quest to help people travel better and smarter!
