Hello and welcome to JerusalemExperience.com,
Today’s video is about Free Jerusalem Tours. Yes, that is right, Jerusalem Tours for FREE!!!
This Free Tour in the Old City of Jerusalem is offered by freelance guides, promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe, an organization that offers its famous FREE tours in many others cities in Europe such as London, Edinburgh, Dublin, Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Prague, Paris and Madrid.
Now, what does it means, Free? All the guides are local certified tour guides who leave in Jerusalem and their only compensation is based on Tips!! This is why the guides do their best to provide the highest quality to the people who join them on each tour. I joined some of these tours and I can certainly tell that I have never before seen such enthusiastic guides – you will see it also in my video how they are always open to questions and to conversation with the people in their group. It seems as you are getting a private tour!!
The meeting point is at the Jaffa gate in the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem, near the information center, every day at 9:00 and 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM on Saturday through Thursday (Make sure you are meeting with people from SANDEMANs). The tour takes approximately 2 hours, and includes the following:
- All four Old City quarters: Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Armenian
- Excavations of Ancient Jerusalem
- View of the Western (Wailing) Wall
- David Citadel
- Roman Cardo Maximus
- Hurva (Ruined) Synagogue
- Suq – Covered markets.
- Upper Room – Syrian Orthodox Church
Basically, this Free tour gives you a general overview of the old city of Jerusalem so you can decide later on, which parts of the city you would like to focus on.
This Free Jerusalem Tours is also strongly recommended by TripAdvisor.com and recently was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for year 2012
