The tour was nice, but from the beginning the guide told us he wanted tip and he wanted 50 shekels per person. Some people left afterwards because it's a bit cheaper than a private tour. Anyhow the tour was nice, but the title is completely misleading. Of course, we will pay

We did the free 2 hour tour through Jerusalem and Liran Whitman was our guide. My kids and I didnt want to join guided tours but Liran‘s tour was so good, clear, well structured, with joy and humor that we decided to go with him on this second tour the same day. He makes tours

I rarely review but wanted to warn everyone. I’m well traveled and I have seen the worst now. After walking for 1.5 hours with little dialogue we got to City of David where Paul shared less info than on the signs! He actually read the signs to us multiple times. Several

Response from SNE_Violeta, Guest Relations Manager at Ancient Jerusalem: City of David Tour
Responded Sep 27, 2019
Hello Suzanne L, Thank you for your honest feedback about your recent tour of Jerusalem. We always appreciate when guests take the time to let us know about their experience so that we have an opportunity to improve our service. We are sorry to hear that the tour with Paul was not to your liking. Each freelance guide we work with has their own style and personality, which we encourage them to express on their tours; it’s what keeps tours promoted by SANDEMANs unique and interesting across our network. All the guides are very passionate and enthusiastic individuals but, unfortunately, their personal tour style does not always match every individual guest’s tastes. It is regrettable to hear that in this instance you felt that Paul’s style was not in line with your preferences for a city tour. On the other hand, we request that the guides we work with remain neutral and objective when it comes to topics as delicate as religious or political beliefs, and we’re very sorry to hear that this was not your experience. We hope we can reassure you that instances such as these are the exception to the many hundreds of guides we work with, and the many hundreds of tours they offer every day. I'd like to thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will pass your feedback onto the local operations team so that they can look into this further. We hope this experience did not spoil your enjoyment of the beautiful city of Jerusalem. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining a SANDEMANs-promoted tour again in the future. Kind regards, The SANDEMANs Team

I really enjoyed joining the walking tour of the Underground City of David. It started off at the Jaffa Gate, with a nice group size of about 8 people and a lively and very informative tour guide named Yoni. We walked for a while to get to the entrance to the tunnels and heard

My husband and I had a free waking tour in Jerusalem this morning and it was fantastic. Alex was our guide and he was really professional and patient with such a huge group. I would recommend the tour to all visitors. Thanks . Carla and Luigi, Italy
