There are two tunnels you can choose from. The main, most popular one has water. However there is an alternative that is dry - I think it is called ‘Siloam Tunnel’

Hi, visited City of David during the afternoon, so it opens during the daylight. In Hebrew, words starts from right to left, if you using translation software, it may have this mistake. Hope this helps.
