It was nice going through the tunnels and seeing where the Jewish men pray. It was an experience getting as close to the temple mount as possible. However, the tunnel is very narrow and long. Some sections are somewhat hot. If you have an issue...More

Do NOT miss this! These tunnels follow the entire length of the Western Wall. It is an amazing accomplishment. A few things to know: if you are claustrophobic this probably isn't for you. Parts of the tunnel are very narrow with low ceilings. It was...More

Western Wall Tunnel Tour is a thorough, interesting explanation of the site. Clear and understanding from child ten years old through adults. A must see when in The Old City of Jerusalem!

You must be able to walk bend low and you should be steady on you feet. The tour is amazing. Do not remember time frame but best guess is 1. Hour or longer. This is a one of a kind experience which i have done...More

The tunnels can be hard to navigate and they are not very big. It takes your breath away to see right in front of you all the history taken right off the pages of the bible. If you have not been, you will never regret...More

The tunnels are a very special experience that brings you back thousands of years back to the history of Jerusalem and the Jewish people, an experience combined with a lot of technology, charming lighting and especially a feeling of holiness and walking down the stairs...More

These tunnels are worth the time it takes to explore them, They are also tied into the history of the city with stories of legends to be learned along the way.

I'm not Jewish... Regardless of whatever faith you walk in, one cannot dismiss the Holiness one encounters here. How many faithful hands have touched the ancient walls here? How many Tears shed? Touching the stones connects me through the eons to the ones who first...More

This tour brings you to sections underground that were hidden from the world for hundreds if not thousands of years. The explanations are detailed, yet understandable to people not particularly well-versed in the history of the western wall. The guides are very enthusiastic about the...More

I don’t know what access doors are locked but the exit area seemed safe. If they offer tours at those times I am sure they have everything covered.

Western Wall Tunnels and Old City (9 Replies)
My cousin, who lives in Israel, mentioned that there is more than one tunnel tour--a "time Tunnel" and the "more natural one." Our visit is included in our tour, so it's hard to know what we'll do. If it's not the full tour, I'd want to do it on our own but doubt I can schedule it last minute. How long does the tunnel tour typically take? Are there options? From the itinerary Arza sent it seems our Old City tour, which includes the tunnels,various quarters and the Davidson Center/southern...More

The Tunnel Tour -- I think the 'natural' one -- took around an hour, as I recall. It was wonderful. That does sound like an awfully short time for all that you've listed.

Western Wall Tunnels Access (2 Replies)
We would like to access the tunnels on the afternoon of our arrival. My understanding is that a tour is required along w/ advance reservations through the Kotel? and it must be guided (It's approximately a 1hr tour?) Is that correct? If so, who should we contact, in advance, to arrange an afternoon tour approximately 3:00 PM on a Wed in June. Thanks alot in advance Loretta

Shalom Loretta and glad to hear you are coming to Israel! To book a tour in the Kotel Tunnels, you have to PHONE the Western Wall Heritage Foundation. From New York, dial 011-972-2-627-1333 and you'll enter their voice mail system. Each time you hear a recorded message, press 0 to continue holding. Be patient - I wait sometimes 15 minutes before an actual person answers! They promised me that this was changing, but so far, it hasn't. And be prepared to NOT get the time you want. It's...More

The Kotel tunnels - Book in advance! (24 Replies)
I recently hosted 2 relatives of mine in J-M for 2 days. Although I called the Western Wall Tunnels Calling center about 2 weeks in advance to book them in an English speaking tour, they were sold out for the dates I wanted. You have to book in advance, at least a month or so, especially to the Western Wall Tunnels, because there is a limited number of people who can go in at once - 28 persons. Anyway, this story has a happy ending, because we decided to wait outside the Tunnel entrance and...More
