Such a cool experience. Take the wet tunnel - bring a flashlight (or your phone) and water shoes! The cool water feels great on tired feet :)

It's best to bring shorts and flip flops but the walk through is astounding especially considering the history. On a hot day, this is the place to be!

I recommend hiking the wet tunnel, even though you may find yourself waist high in water! There is a dry tunnel, too, and both are must-sees, each revealing physical evidence of passages that my mother used to tell me were more about the lessons learned...More

What an exhilarating hike this was through 3,000 years of history. If you come to Jerusalem in hot weather you'll especially love this

If you are claustrophobic do not do this tunnel. But, if you are not, it is not to be missed. The City of David is unbelievable. The early Jerusalem. Don't miss this.

Normally, I'm claustrophobic but I wasn't on this occasion. Perhaps it was the breeze blowing through the tunnel or perhaps it was the cold water running across my bare feet but my walk through Hezekiah's Tunnel was a brilliant experience and not at all frightening....More

This is something that only you can consider. The tunnels are low, narrow and unlit, and as I mentioned in the review, if you have any issues with claustrophobia...this might be a challenge for you.
