I was only in Jerusalem for less than one day, so wanted to do something that would give me a quick overview of the old city. Sandman's tour with Gary ticked all the boxes. Gary was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and most of all very passionate about the city. Highly recommended

Took the two hour walking tour of the old city of Jerusalem with Allen. He is very knowledgable. Gave a lot of interesting information. Showed the highlights of the four quarters of the old city. Recommend this tour for all.

I took this tour yesterday and I have to say it was the best decision! My tour guide, Itay, was very knowledgeable, really nice and funny. We all had a great time and learned so much. You can tell how much he loves his city. And he is also very respectful of all traditions. I would do it again for... More

Took the free Old City tour and Mount of Olives tour with delightful Ryan who was a fantastic guide- great energy, extremely knowledgeable historian and with a comprehensive understanding of the history of all three religions.

I started on the free Jerusalem old city tour with no expectations, however Ryan from Texas had everything to really bring the city and its history & traditions alive. The tour meant so much to my pilgrimage to Jerusalem - and I would advise all to join the free tour any day from Jaffa Gate at 11am & 2pm. The... More

We attended the tour and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though our 2 teenaged boys were less than enthusiastic on the outset. Our guide was Ryan, who was passionate about the topic and very knowledgeable. After walking around town, looking at historic buildings for nearly 6 hours our sons had a smile on their face - it could not have been... More

Went on a wonderful walking tour with Yariv Yaffe. The two-and-a-half hour walk through the different quarters of the old city, to a look-out place above the Western Wall with Temple Mount in the distance, gave me a fascinating insight into this historical city. It began to snow quite heavily, later to be followed by rain. Yariv made sure everyone... More

I took a free tour of the old city with Ryan. He was enthusiastic, lively, engaging, and knowledgeable, and made the tour fun and interesting, with a good group dynamic. I gave pittance as a tip (it was all I could afford at the time), yet he was still happy to sit and chat with me about history, archeology, and... More

We did the 4 hour tour of Jerusalem with Yoni - it was very in-depth and a fantastic way to understand the history and importance of Jerusalem as a city. Yoni really knows his stuff, answering all questions and nothing was too much trouble. We really enjoyed this trip & was great value for money.

We did three tours with Sandeman, two in Jerusalem and one in Tel Aviv. All our guides (Ryan, Allan and Nicola) were very knowledgeable, great storytellers and awesome people. They answered all our questions, showed us the best spots in the cities and added their very own personal touch to the tours. The Sandeman free tours are great to get... More
