It is amazing that we could walk down to touch the foundation of Western Wall. Like everybody, we also wonder how Herod or his staff managed to move the gigantic foundation stones. We had a very informative and humorous guide which made the tour interesting. Why the bride-to-be has to visit the site before marriage? Ans: Learn to talk to... More

The underground "Tunnels" are massive and, to some, frightening at times, however very interesting, and I am glad that I found this ancient part of Jerusalem, and experienced the extraordinary abilities of craftsmen to produce such an amazing effect with the relatively simple equipment available to them at that time.

How in the world the ancient people moved those giant stones is a great mystery. Very worthwhile to visit.

A couple of the most interesting points made were about Herod's stones and Warren's adventures. Herod the Great installed the monumental stones that... More

We had a guide who was able to keep his voice low so as not to disturb other groups. Some other guides taking groups through were not so courteous. Annoying at times. Try to stay away from the crowds.

Of all the tours I have been on, this was by far the most amazing and memorable. As soon as it was over I wanted to go on it again. It is an incredible bargain, at around $10 a person for a well informed and fascinating tour that lasted well over an hour. When you exit onto the Via Dolorosa,... More

Not that well known by most, but definitely a highlight for us, similar to Hezekiah's Tunnel in the City of David. Make sure you have a good Tour Guide to explain this and other sites!
