We went on the Old City tour and the Mount of Olives tour. We made sure to get Joni (pronounced yawny) when we returned for the second tour because he was extremely well-educated and knowledgeable of all things Jerusalem! Very cheap way to get to see some things that you might have completely missed out by yourself.

We had a excellent guide Dor who was very well informed and not biased in his presentations. He answered questions. He waited to make sure everyone was present before talking and making sure everyone kept .I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. I recommend this tour with Dor to everyone.

Ryan is a very boisterous tour guide who clearly has a deep knowledge of the area despite his American origin! We enjoyed this tour, it covered most essential things in the Old City and the pay what you want system leaves you feeling satisfied. 50 shekels per person is the most common payment apparently.

My husband and I took both the free tour (with Ryan) and the Mt of Olives tour (with Assaf). Both guides were awesome- professional, knowledgable and helpful. Don't miss out!

I visited Jerusalem in June and attended two tours by Sandeman. One was the Old City Tour by Yariv Yaffe. The tour lasted well over five and half hours, so we got to see pretty much everything in the Old City. Yaffe was a very knowledgeable guide and he was fun too. The group was small, around 11 people, smaller... More

This was a great tour, full of information and fun!!!! Ryan was a great guide and made the long walk with all the ups and downs incredibly enjoyable. For the price of a tip (make it generous, it is well deserved) you get more than you can imagine.

My husband and I joined both the two hour Jerusalem Tour and the three hour Mount of Olives tour and we are glad we did as we were not with a large tour group that had tour guides arranged. It is easy to meet at the Jaffa Gate. The layout of the tours was explained in advance exactly as it... More

Very good to make you know the sites that you wanna foccus after by yourself. Guides, like Jack, are very polite, funny and smart. Tips are not something you must give, but you feel that its something fair!

Ryan was a great tour guide. This tour gives a great over view of the city and it's politics. The tour was supposed to be 2 hours but nearer 3. Gave a really concise view of the city. It was also super helpful on advised dress, areas to avoid at certain times, As there was obviously a lot of political... More

Despite the on-going conflict and perpetual stream of terrible news, Ryan delivered a neutral and amazing tour chock full of facts and local advice. He is a great guy! If you take a tour with him come with a lot of questions- this guy knows everything! Take advantage of the opportunity. J
