We visited the Wailing Wall area as part of a three bus tour group. Our Monday afternoon visit found the place, like everywhere else on the tour, to be packed. I elected to view it without actually entering the restricted site. If my wife &...More

You can’t say you’ve been to Jerusalem if you don’t go here Take the Western Wall tunnel tour but you have to get tickets in advance. It’s usually sold out

Men must have their heads covered. It was a good experience to see all the bar mitzvahs going on and see the orthodox Jews living their heritage. Feel free to touch the wall, pray and stick a prayer in a crack. Paper isn't provided so...More

We had a great day visiting the wall. Not very crowded. Lost of locals worshipping. No pictures allowed that day. They fussed at some men with cameras around their necks.
