This is where I felt the most peace of all the cites and places we visited. It was just such a wonderful experience. The guide there was excellent!

We were offered a free tour by a kind and gentle Christian guide called Gerry. Highly recommend taking the tour, especially if you are a Christian. He started off by praying for us, which was greatly appreciated. The tour emphasised the values we really looking for in a spiritual experience in Israel which we hadn't found at other Christian sights.... More

This might not be the real place where Jesus was buried, but like out guide said, it "feels right." Unlike the church in the Old City, the garden gives you a sense of peace and authenticity. It wasn't crowded the day we were there so there was time to really soak in the atmosphere of the place.

This is a beautiful garden. It probably isn't the tomb of Christ, but it is what you imagine the tomb would look like. Gives you an idea of how people were buried back in the day.

We had a wonderful tour of the Garden Tomb. It is so different from so many of the other holy sites that are so over the top, with glitz and glamour. The Garden Tomb is such a peaceful place to visit and see how people were buried duirng the time of Jesus. Our tour guide was a Christian named Jurgen... More

At last a place in Jerusalem that was peaceful and respectful and although we don't know if it is the Tomb, I think more likely than the bun fight they call the Holy Sepulchre. .

I don't really know if Jesus was buried here or at the Holy Sepulchre - maybe at neither one. I can, however, say that you have a far better chance of getting into the Garden Tomb than you ever will at the one in the church. This place was far less chaotic and there was a peace that permeated the... More

After a 12 day tour of Israel this was the last stop that our tour group made. After seeing so many "over the top" churches built on historical or biblical sites it was nice to see a site that was simple and not over crowded. This is a Christian run site and all the guides are volunteers. I believe that... More

We saw the tomb where it was believed that Jesus was buried and guess what? It was empty just like the Bible said. The place was beautiful with lovely gardens and we also saw the place called Golgotha or place of skull mentioned in the bible. It was truly a great sight to see the skull etched on the mountain's...
