This was one of my highlights of our tour. It was such an awesome experience walking in a testament of God's power and provision. The shallow water was fresh and refreshing. I would definitely do this again!

We were just walking down the new Kings' path when we stumbled across this place. Very little signage so easy to miss but well worth visiting. Lots of steps and very narrow though. There's a short dry walk or a long wet walk - take your pick.

This is such a cool experience. The tunnels are a waterway by which King Hezekiah provided a protected water for Jerusalem even in the case of a siege. There is the option of taking the "dry" route in a parallel tunnel to the waterway, but for my money take the wet route. It can be a bit challenging for the... More

We were able to visit the tunnels during a recent tour and learned so much from our guide while we were there. My kids (12 and 14 years old) really enjoyed going through the tunnels and it added a whole other dimension of interest and participation beyond just seeing another archeological site. We opted to go through the 2 dry... More

One of my favorite israel places. Amongst the many many many churches built ovee every single place Jesus may have touched/been/hung out, this place is authentic, since it's excavation, i'm amazed they let tourists like us in to cross. Not recommended for claustrophobics or short people since the water goes quite high to the mid thigh and I don't think... More

Very little information are given onsite so this is basically a 30' walk underground in very large caves that have been used as quarries during the construction of the old city and the temple.

Great place if you are fit to walk 20 minutes and are willing to see anything more than the religious artefacts.
