I spent the last 2 weeks in Israel on vacations and most of the time in Jerusalem. One of the most captivating cities I've ever been to. I hadn't actually planned so much time in the city but I was mesmerised by lots of history and religion together. Concerning the fact that I'm not a big fan of citytours at first it was my intention to take only the Free City Tour from Sandeman's to get a general idea of the site and then walk by myself for the rest of time in town ... well, at last I ended up by doing the 3 tours they offer: City Tour, Mount of Olives and the Holy City. The main reason for that was finding such a nice and talented guide named Yoni Dinur... he was extremely attentious to all of our questions showing deep knowledge of the places we were presented to. Don't forget we are talking about a 4000 years old or so city which is Jerusalem... you do have to be competent enough to talk about such a place and so was Yoni! I truly recommend him as an excellent professional to guide you through history of the holy land. Just stick to him while walking up an down the city an you'll be amazed by how much you will profit from his wisdom!

Our family of three from New Jersey went on the "Holy City Tour" today and there were individuals from Germany, England, and Spain, and all from different religious backgrounds. Our guide, Shakked, was able to make everyone feel comfortable and was able to convey to us all the wonders of this magnificent city. Through her stories as well as her historical knowledge, she was able to explain the convoluted and complicated richness of the city of Jerusalem. Shakked was able to be historically accurate and religiously indifferent, while still adding her own personal spin to the stories, bringing the history back to life!

Did the free intro to the Old City tour with our tour guide Jeremy on our first day to the Old City, it's a great way to get started if you have never been here before. Jeremy was extremely friendly, easy to understand and very knowledgable about all subject matter related to this area of the world and especially Israel. Our group was about 18 so we could always hear him and his explanations of what we were looking at, he encouraged questions and did a great job answering them all. Would highly recommend him and the free ( make sure you tip) Sandemans tour.

Good trip to Jerusalem, and this tour is a MUST HAVE on Jerusalem, the guide (YOANI) was very helpful, explained all the history about each highlight, explained a little bit of the local culture...

Definitely I recommend this tour! Forget about the conflicts, Jerusalem is pretty safe, all the people are very kind!

Thank you from Brazil!

We've been traveling the world for 9 months and Jeremy's tour was the best we've taken...and it was free! We started with a big group but they split us into two smaller groups which helped keep it intimate, and Jeremy projected his voice quite well so it was always easy to hear him. He delivered a ton of information in a clear and digestible way, and made it all fun with many jokes and trivia questions along the way. Along with the essential facts, Jeremy included personal anecdotes and non-biased contextual information on Israeli religion and culture which really enriched the tour. Highly recommended.
