While I am not convinced that this is the actual tomb that Jesus was buried, it still a good place to visit. Loved the signs that had Bible scriptures on them. Also got to see an old fashioned wine press that was excavated!

If I wanted peaceful and beautiful, this is definitely the place. However, Jesus death was by no means peaceful and beautiful. I came to Jerusalem to visit the places where Jesus walked. The Garden Tomb just isn't believable especially if you consider the Calvary where Jesus died would be in a bus station. It definitely is a tomb. I just... More

What a wonderful place and, compared to the church of the Holy Sepulchre, this is so spiritual. My two favourite places in Jerusalem are here and the garden of gethsemane. A well maintained oasis of peace, reflection and spirituality in an otherwise busy and noisy city. The volunteers do a magnificent job in ensuring visitors experience the true meaning of... More

There are really two places that people believe Christ was crucified, and after visiting the Garden Tomb and the Place of the Skull, I am convinced this is the actual place. Visiting the tomb is amazing, but the entire visit itself is top-notch. The volunteers that staff the tours are very well informed and committed to telling the story.

This is a lovely oasis in the middle of a giant city. The staff are very committed and have an incredibly generous spirit and kind hearts. I know that there are potentially two sights were Jesus may have died and been buried, but this one is more peaceful and inspiring.

The tour of the Garden Tomb started with a brief history of the property from a local volunteer guide. This is one of the only attractions that do not cost to visit, it is totally denotation based. You walk through the garden to view the place where it is very possible Jesus hung on the cross at street level until... More

While the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is impressive, the Garden Tomb is what you picture for Jesus's Tomb. Definitely needs to be on your agenda.

So grateful to have visited this site. Very plausible that this is the place where Jesus was crucified and the tomb from which He was resurrected. Had a very beautiful visit and worship experience with our tour group. The guide was very informed and Biblically accurate.

Quiet with a beautiful view of the city . It made me feel as much as possible what Jesus may have felt knowing what was to come. Peaceful and beautiful
