The premier provider of walking tours in Europe, SANDEMANs NEW Europe offers private tours, events, and activities to suit your needs.
Founded in 2003, by Yale University graduate Chris Sandeman, SANDEMANs NEW Europe Tours became the leading European tour provider within two years of beginning operations. From the start, the success of the company has been rooted in the belief that everyone should be able to experience the beauty and rich history of any city…regardless of their budget. The Free Tour concept was born and a new walking tour market was created in a group previously left out by traditional tourism – the budget traveller.
SANDEMANs NEW Europe is more than just a tour company. We are committed to providing exceptional walking tours that go beyond the industry standard and set us in a league of our own. SANDEMANs NEW Europe is pioneering the way city tours and information resources are organized, while creating a new standard for expectations within the European market. We work with hostels and other local businesses in all of our cities.
This synergy not only means better results for our customers but also our partners. Being one of the largest walking tour companies in Europe isn’t just about providing tours, it is about developing responsible tourism and preserving local flavors. Not content to be one of many, as we advance into the future we will continue to look for creative and innovate ways to improve not just our tours but the concept of what a walking tour company can be. We look forward to many continued partnerships and are excited about what we can do to develop the industry as a whole.
Our partners rely on us to provide a continually expanding list of affordable and professional services for both themselves and their customers. We are able to connect local businesses to our network of over 1.3 million active travellers annually, hundreds of self-employed guides, and a strong office team ready to work together to redesign expectations of what a walking tour company can do. To name just a few, our services include custom maps and check in material, guest pick-up services, specially tailored private tours, international exposure in our hostel recommendation guide or websites, and, always, the opportunity to offer customers an award-winning FREE TOUR of many cities.
