Sandemans New Jerusalem Tours
Sandemans New Jerusalem Tours information
Sandemans' free daily tours are an excellent introduction to the Old City and are warmly recommended (tips are appreciated – 50NIS per person is appropriate). Try to join one on your first day in the city so as to get your bearings; bookings aren't necessary. Tours start at Jaffa Gate at 9am, noon and 3pm daily. Look for the guides in red t-shirts.
The company also offers in-depth charged tours of the Old City and Mount of Olives – see the website for details.
Note that a slightly dodgy alternative outfit is also offering free tours from Jaffa Gate. Don't believe their shtick about free entry to monuments (none of the monuments they visit charge for entry). These guides wear orange t-shirts.
