I toured Hezekiah's Tunnels as part of a tour of Israel. I found it to be a fun experience. The tunnel is dark, no lighting, so take a flashlight. Wear waterproof shoes, as your feet are in water the entire time. The water came up to my mid thighs at times (I'm 5'7"), but some in our group were up... More

Worth a visit, you don't realise all the history underneath your feet. Worth having a guide to explain things

You can still see inscriptions left on the wall by the builders back in the time of Judean King Hezekiah. If you don't mind getting your feet wet, this is awesome.

We had a bad experience l. We were not told to bring flashlights. The tunnel was claustrophobic, dark, andwe were walking through dirty water. Do not bring little kids or kids at all. Just don't go.

We traveled as a group of children, parents, grandparents and great grandparents Seeing the tunnels with knowledge of the biblical history, putting visual reality to my optical conjecture, is fascinating There are MANY steps, I was told over 3000, and some very narrow passages. This is not for the elderly with ambulatory problems and not for infants. It's certainly not... More

So exciting that we can still explore this ancient place with so much recorded history to reference it. We went in Winter but I imagine it would be a great escape from the heat in the Summer months. If you are extra adventurous, take some shorts to change into as a section of the tunnel is thigh-deep in water (the... More

The tunnels are an interesting walk although not for the claustrophobic or those with mobility problems. There are a lot of stairs to navigate to get to the start of the tunnels and then the tunnels themselves are quite tight. We went through the wet tunnels. There is absolutely no light so a torch (or phone) is a must. Also... More

Within the City of David, you can descend into Hezekiah's tunnel and walk in the water for 20 minutes until you exit. Bring a good flashlight as you will otherwise be in total darkness

How do you combine history, water and fun. A trip though the city of David and Hezekiah's tunnels is one great recipe. I do advise you to either take a guided tour or have a knowledgeable person with you or you will miss half ( or more ) of the expereince.

In Jerusalem with a group and took the opportunity to take a walk through the tunnel which is narrow and full of running water up to knee height. Would suggest you take a little torch or light from your mobile and plastic walking sandal as the base of the tunnel is rough in places, walking sandals provide a better grip.... More
