Come rediscover Biblical Jerusalem! Located just outside the Old City walls, the City of David is in fact the historical Old City of Jerusalem, containing archeological remnants going back 4,000 years. Come see for yourself where it all began...
it is a historic site, but it can also be a fun trip
there are wet and dry tunnels and if you are adventurous enough, do try the wet ones. Just keep in mind, they are wet for a reason and the water can be...More
I have always done this tour. The kids love it. They sell you little flashlights for 5NIS and you will need them. You can take a long time and look at all the history on the way down, or just go do the tunnel. VERY...More
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
I carried a group of thirty nine people to Jerusalem and we visited Hezekiah's Tunnel. We actually walked through the tunnel- for a couple of miles. There is a wet part of the tunnel and a dry part of the tunnel- we walked through the...More
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

I was there with a 3 year old (and her older siblings). As people wrote, it can get tight at places (I'm about 1.85 m and couldn't walk in a fully upright position the whole time. the water are a little deep for the first couple of meters, after that it was low enough for my 3 year old at most places. However, the water are a little cold, and the place is dark (this is a big part of the experience, esp. on a hot summer day - walking in cold water in a cool tunnel, using flashlights to find your way....).
So overall, my 3 year old was OK with this. Her siblings just loved it! I brought her along because we all went in, if I had the option of leaving her with someone to do something interesting in the meantime, she would've probably enjoyed it more.
Good luck :)
