Mario Koch

Regions of Specialty:

Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary

World Wanderer

Mario has prepared for being B&R’s guy in Central Europe all his life—he just didn’t know. As a freelance travel writer, he discovered places worth telling people about. With his film production company, he learned how to orchestrate a group of diverse talent to show the audience their combined best. As a chef, he got the knack of how that extra little pinch makes for a most memorable dish. And in his free time, he zig-zagged the roads of the European continent in his camper van.

Somehow he is still wearing all these hats. Except now he’s finding those places for you. He lets his local friends and contacts make their stories come alive for you. And because other—and probably better—chefs now do the cooking, he has even more time to zig, zag, discover and plan.

TRAVELLER PRAISE

"The one thing that made the trip a huge success was the approach, attitude and actions of Mario."

- Daniel Petre
