Impossible you say? No, it’s true. Sandeman’s NEW Europe Tours have been offering free tours in 14 cities across Europe since they were founded in 2004. That’s not all. They have have become the leading European tour providers within two years of beginning operations.
Originally offering english language walking tours of Berlin, by 2006 they had expanded into Munich, Amsterdam, and London with select tours offered in Spanish and German. In 2007 they began the introduction of tours in Paris, Edinburgh and Hamburg. Since then this innovative tour company has started offering tours in Madrid, Jerusalem, Prague, and most recently Tel Aviv. Pretty Impressive.
So what makes these free tours so much better than an average tour you would typically pay for? SANDEMANs claims that their dramatic historians bring the past alive through their unique story telling and physical animation. This is coupled with a vast knowledge base which allows their guides to weave history together and draw connections and parallels through the subject matter. They believe that history is the best story, and that dull and heavy retelling of history is simply unprofessional guiding. Their professional guides never hide behind an onslaught of dates and names, and they never substitute great content for boring facts.
Their concept is that they simple believe in supporting their local communities and are committed to giving a voice to self-employed guides who have chosen Europe as their home. By ensuring that every native English speaking guide represents their unique style of mixing history and story-telling while maintaining their own personality and flair, they’ve become one of the most popular tour companies in the world. Their mission is simple, to provide the travelers with professionally guided tours regardless of budget, and to be the representation of quality in the eyes of travelers everywhere.
