“Hezekiah's tunnels rock!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Walking through the narrow, carved out tunnels of life giving water was amazing. We loved being down there. The history of Hezekiah and the Caananites digging these tunnels is phenominal.

“Fun! Dark and wet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our visit would have been. Enter had it not been for the school children streaming.
Very dark, you need a flashlight, water a times up to your knees, if you are tall it is a problem. It is an experience.

“not for the faint hearted or claustrophobic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Went through the dry tunnel which was quite damp in places. No-one warned how steep and rough it would be, nor how narrow. Four friends went through the wet tunnel and loved it but they were warned about what preparations to take. Those of us who did the dry tunnel had no such information. It was for me a frightening experience
