“A "must see" in Jerusalem”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

We returned to the Wailing Wall a couple of times. It is an important historical and cultural treasure of Jerusalem that seems different each time you visit.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

I have always wanted to visit this place. It was much bigger than I expected (you only see the wall part on the TV) and the square is huge. Was a bit put out that I wasn't allowed into the wall area as I am a woman, but I should have thought about it beforehand (sexism is alive & well in this place). However the experience was most interesting and I would recommend that you do not miss this if you are in Jerusalem

“nice to experience”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Lots of tourists taking photos but mostly people praying. It was under construction a bit but still a very nice space.

“not much to cry about”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

some stone behind the wall makes the faithfull come here and pray, if you dont get it you can at least feel blessed that you dont have to wear black clothes, big hat and curly hair in 40C...

“Must visit!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Any visit to Jerusalem must include the Wailing Wall! Regardless of your religious beliefs this is still one of the holiest sites in the city, and you will stand there in awe at the amazing construction and sheer beauty of the wall.
