This is one of the key highlights of our tour to Jerusalem. Did the wet tunnels with my two kids (7,11) and it's thrilling. It will infuse an appreciation for biblical history as well. A fully-charged light is advisable!

Not only does the tunnel offer a fascinating piece of history, it does so in the cool, refreshing environment of a tiny underwater river (which was very appreciated after being in the scorching sun all day). However, as lovely as it was, there are a few tips I would suggest to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. 1. Wear... More

An amazing fete of civil engineering extending back almost 3000 years. Amazing!! Take the time to get your feet wet and walk through this ancient water pipe!

The tunnel is a must, the fact that it was dug 3000+ years ago with little more than a few tunnels is incredible. Would recommend taking a torch (or a phone with a torch on it!) as it is very dark! Wouldn't recommend the Herodian street/tunnel (dry) which runs parallel as it has plastic piping running throughout and is very... More

An excursion you will remember for ever. One of our favorite places on our tour of the Holy Lands. Went back a second time to get some of what we missed.

I couldn't wait to go through and I am definitely not disappointed. For me, knowing that, what is it 3,000 years ago, this tunnel was dug through solid rock and today I get to walk through it and it hasn't been defiled by tourism necessities such as artificial lighting and shops and all that. Apart from slippery stairs and a... More

We were not prepared to enter the wet tunnel however at the exact same entrance you can turn left and take the dry route. What we found very interesting was the drainage canal tunnel...we were not expecting it. It is 650 meters in length and begins at the same spot where the those who take the wet tunnel come out....

The Tunnel is 1750' long. To get to the tunnel requires steep stairs. The tunnel is very dark, low and narrow. If those things don't bother you, do it! At the very beginning the water is thigh deep, but then becomes ankle deep. The engineering of this tunnel is amazing. There is an inscription carved into the stone wall, dated... More

Interesting tour below the street level to see original walls of the Temple. Reservations must be made ahead of time, however.
