Don't miss this stop. Our group traveled to the area in February and we climbed on top of Tel Megiddo and read scripture and enjoyed the view. It was very cold and blustery but it didn't stop of from enjoying the ruins and the amazing water structure built. I can well believe that this is the future site of Armageddon!

This is meant to be the site where Armageddon will occur. The ruins had been cared for and were in good condition. It was a natural hill compared to the surrounding low and flat area. Best way to get here is with a hire car. You can see horse stables, baths and more. There is a massive water gathering hole... More

I stopped here because it was on my way towards Genesaret lake and I was curious of the site. I knew it was an important control point on the road between Egypt and Mesopotamia in antiquity so no wonder the site was destroyed and rebuilt 26 times. It does control the mountain pass and it gives an excellent view of... More

Very interesting historical and culture site. There tours with various languages and ages... Do not skip "aquadook" (an old water system), which was discovered a few years ago. Recommend to continue to one of local authentic restaurants around (need 10-15 min driving

This was a very interesting site, especially with the aid of the audio headset. Do get one to guide you.

This place was one of my favorites. It is a historically important location, and well worth the visit. Luckily I had just read "The Source" by James Michener a few months prior to the visit and it made exploring the tunnel and other areas amazing.

Helps to have a guide to tell about the incredible history associated with Megiddo. Not for everyone. If you like the Biblical history and are able to appreciate the crossroads that Megiddo was, you will enjoy it but, if you are not crazy about walking around a bunch of ruins with very little left of buildings, you should pass it...

From a religious and secular history perspective, Megiddo is without a doubt, a "must see." 2 hours well spent. The ruins are just that though, ruins. Some very well preserved, but others requiring a bit of an imagination to visualize. As usual with such an attraction, you will get far more out of it a guided tour.

Early closure hours and surly cashier. They will lure you into the gift shop (it stays open even though the tour part ends early ) and then chastise you for walking through the museum part (which is on the way back from gift shop... Even as part of your party is spending $85 in the gift shop). Only interested in... More
