We arrived a few minutes late but were still able to join our group. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly waiting for the whole group to catch up before speaking in different areas. Some parts were narrow but it wasn't particularly claustrophobic. The only thing that would have made the tour better would've been being in a smaller group. Overall, it was a great experience. The underground temple they built last year was pretty cool to see as well.

It is wonderful to be able to walk in the history of 2000 or more years. An experience that cannot be described. I encourage anyone who has this opportunity to take it. Your life will be changed.

The guide is excellent who leads people through the tunnels explaining the excavations, past and present. The tunnels are wide enough and well lighted. It is dry on the ground.

There are many sites which are underground in Jerusalem. Whether you visit the Western Wall tunnels next to the Western Wall, Hezekiah's tunnel or the Canaanite tunnel in the City of David, the Ascent to Zion, the Burnt House of Herodian Quarter you will find thousands of years of history below your feet.

We wanted to visit the newly opened pilgrimage road from the City of David tourist center to the Western Wall but apparently it isn't open yet to the general public. Instead we were taken on guided tour through the underground drainage channel immediately below the pilgrimage road. We were given brilliant explanations of the uses of this route which is over 2 meters high but very narrow in places and goes from David's City below the present city walls and ends up below the Western Wall plaza allowing you to view and touch the lower part of the Western Wall which is underground below the plaza. An unbelievable experience walking along a route last used 2000 years ago and with so much human history in the paving stones and cellars you wander through. At the end of the tour you climb the same stairs used all those years ago to reach the Southern Wall gates. An absolute must. Request the English tour and book in advance via their website.

Initially we decided to take just one tour and get a feel for the guides and info. Our tour guide, Nathan, exceeded our expectations. His passion for history and enthusiasm in sharing it came through. His attention to detail and sharing extra little factoids were fantastic. In fact, we booked the Hezekiah tunnel tour with him the next day. If you’ve come this far to experience a walk through history, don’t short change yourself and skip a tour. It was wonderful and we will absolutely be back for what we missed this time.

This tour is definitely worth it. I thought the tour guide was by far the best and most knowledgeable tour guide I have experienced. Furthermore, he definitely knew how to engage everyone in the tour, even the lovely children. Everything was on point and easy to follow! My friend and I felt like we finally had a good overview of the city. Lovely!
Regrettably, I forgot the name of the guide but we were on the 11 am tour on the 23rd of January 2019. Hope he somehow gets credit for his wonderful effort.

Amazing tour with an amazing guide. It is hard to grasp the sheer size of the Western Wall and the importance of the site. There is another unmissable experience in The Kotel called "A look into the past", which is the virtual-reality tour of the Second Temple. Both well worth the time and very affordable ( 35 and 30 NIS )
