The tour was rushed, incoherent, and delivered in heavily accented, hard to understand English. She could not answer questions. Sandeman needs someone competent to train their guides and write their scripts. The 8 minute video was a waste of time, and was pure self-promotion, adding nothing to understanding of making of sherry. Skip the 7.5 euro tapas which consisted of... More

We took the short tour following the horse show next door. Our guide was knowledgeable and spoke English well. I didn't realize I enjoyed the taste of Sherry until the ample samples were provided. The olives were tasty, also.

For anyone considering doing this tour in Jerez I would definitely recommend that you do not pay for the tapas on offer. Along with 3 friends I recently did the guided tour of the House of Sandeman, going for the option which included tasting 3 sherrys. We also chose to pay for tapas at 7 Euro a head. The guided...

The tour was like so many others but was nevertheless interesting and informative. The after tour tasting was more generous than most. Is the export product different or is it the local ambience that makes it so good.

We thought we would go for the most expensive tour. it was worth every penny. at the end of the tour we were taken to a table with many glasses of sherry. We thought this was for the whole group. It wasn't it was for just 2 of us. By the time we left we were rather tipsy. It was... More

Gonzalo was our guide, and exceptionally knowledgeable about all facets of the Sandeman operations and sherry making process. we thoroughly enjoyed his company and willingness to answer all our questions....he never got stumped! The sherry tasting was also very good, we opted as a couple to have a 7 euro and a 10 euro selection so we could share a... More

Well worth a visit when in the area. Tour is informative and the guide was very good, our guide spoke very good English and nothing was too much trouble to her when we asked questions relating to the products. The history of the company was well presented and very interesting. The tasting at the end of the tour was also... More

we were so excited to see these "bodegas"...(distilleries). The tour guide Patricia had a cold...so we did not want to be too close to her ...needless to say we did not want to catch whatever she had. her presentation was poor...she almost whispered all the way because there was another tour in front of us. Her english was totally incomprehensible... More
