Our guide, Tanya, is well informed about religious history and recent changes in how the Western Wall is administered. Some of that material could be put into writing and handed out so that less discussion is required. That would allow for more access to the synogogues as the

Tania was an excellent guide, systematic and clear in her explanations and cleared up a lot of questions I had about Jerusalem and Jews in general. I honestly thought she was one of the better guides I've come across. However the only sights we saw were the Western Wall - but

Response from SNE_Violeta, Guest Relations Manager at Jerusalem: Shabbat Experience
Responded 5 Nov 2019
Hi SBahraini, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and for joining the tour in Jerusalem. We love to hear back from engaged travellers such as yourself, as your feedback helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect of us. We are sorry to hear that your expectations were not met on this occasion. Whilst the tour’s route and content are listed on our website, the independent guides we work with may alter the tour in order to suit their own style and each group’s dynamic. We feel this adds a personal touch that makes tours promoted by SANDEMANs fresh and unforgettable, but it may also mean that the tour’s stories and sites are not in line with every guests’ preferences which, unfortunately, can be a difficult situation to avoid. While on the whole, the vast majority of guests are extremely satisfied, we do state on our promotional material that all the tours do differentiate from one another due to the individual nature of the guides we work with. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. All the best, The SANDEMANs Team

I went on this tour last week and was very impressed with the experience. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and managed the group very well. Not all guides are able to present information in such a concise manner while also keeping everyone engaged. Our tour guide nailed
