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

Megiddo was a Bronze Age city in the time of Moses, and later an Iron Age city in the time of Kings David & Solomon. This city controlled the "Mare Via" or, the way to the sea, and was a strategic location. A large tunnel was hewn through the rocks to gain a passage way to a natural spring that... More

So much history in one site! Remnants from 6000 years ago through to Biblical times and beyond. It was amazing to walk through the stone gates knowing they have been there for 3,500 years! The site is very well sign-posted bad informative. You are able to self guide and walk through. The kids most enjoyed the underground water tunnels (now... More

This place awas awesome but creepy. It is a must see for Revelation fans of the NT. The tel has a great advantage point as you can see so any enemy coming from the distance. There are still ancient alters where human sacrifices were made which was creepy. I was expecting to get raptured or to fight the anti christ... More

Must have a look, The site is very unique in the plain where you can imagin thousands of tanks fire on each other. Buy tickets first before entering the TV room, not the entrance of the park, otherwise the staff will blame you as if you are a ticket evader!

THE GREAT - An important historical site to visit for reasons explained on other posts. The movie, the ruins, the tunnel, the gift shop gives this National Park a nice balance. THE BAD - Easy to access by car or tour, hard to get to by public transportation. You will have to pay an entree fee (if not included on... More

This was a really cool stop on our tour. The ruins were great to see and you got a great view of the surrounding area. There were metal sculptures of horses and a chariot where you could get some really great photos of and on. But the highlight of the trip was the tunnel. There is a wheelchair lift to... More

This is of course an important historical site and it has religious importance and significance to foreign visitors. It is nicely preserved and intersting to visit. The walk through the water tunnel is especially unique. One piece of advice- best to do this with a tour guide.
