Wear comfortable slip-proof walking shoes, and bring water shoes and a towel, because you will be offered a chance to walk through the waters of the tunnel. This is a guided tour (and you cannot go without a guide, for your own safety, as you...More

What a cool experience! These tunnels were built when Sennacharib was coming to invade Jerusalem. They were discovered by one of David's mighty men and then dug out further when Hezekiah was bringing water into the city. It was a cool thing to experience and...More

Sloshing through the dark tunnel was so cool on a hot day! Not for the claustrophobic but there is a dry path which I guess is not as bad. Our personal guide took us through and you definitely need a cell phone flashlight or it...More

On a hot Summer's day this underground stroll, wading through cool water is a real treat. Be sure to wear your water shoes and bring a flashlight.

Amazing that workers in ancient times could dig this tunnel and divert a natural stream through the solid rock under old Jerusalem. So cool that visitors can go through the tunnel today!

City of David is a nice place to visit and the tunnel is definitely a highlight. Bring a head torch if you have one since it is good to have your hands free. It is very dark in the tunnel. It is also wet, usually...More

I have travelled around the world for decades but I have yet to experience anything like this. It is very interesting in a fundamental way to understand a little about the pre-history of this important city and the way this tunnel was discovered in modern...More

This is something that only you can consider. The tunnels are low, narrow and unlit, and as I mentioned in the review, if you have any issues with claustrophobia...this might be a challenge for you.
