Really informative, historical and important to the nation and Biblical history. Wear good walking shoes and be prepared for dampness.

Great 3D movie and then walk through the ruins of the original city of King David. There are explanations throughout, although worthwhile to visit with a guide if visiting for the first time.

Excellent tour with Shimon. We signed up for more tours with Sandeman's based on this experience. I definitely recommend Shimon. He is friendly, attentive, knowledgable, manages a group well and offers a balanced perspective. I will look for Sandeman's tours in the future.
