The tunnel tour is a must see in Jerusalem as it paints a vivid picture of the history of Jerusalem, demonstrated through layers of the Western Wall. In touring the tunnels you are amazed at what archaelogists have unearthed and how incredibly constructed are the passages. Probably more than almost anything we saw in Jerusalem the tunnels provide insights into how magnificently Israel has sought to maintain the country's historical significance and open passages into the past. Be aware that you may need to have reservations if you want to get the tour.

I think that our guide made this a very interesting and informative site. We went with a group, so I don't know what it would be like on your own. The tunnels give you a chance to be close to the wall without as many distractions.

Very interesting. Tour guides vary, but ours was knowledgeable, with a good sense of humor. Damp and cool compared to above ground-- nice to do at end of long day sightseeing and visiting churches, mosques, temples and shrines.

The Western Wall Tunnel tour is one of the best in the city. The guides have all been thoroughly trained to guide them. It is a chance to see the enormity of the Herodian project and marvel at how his builders built the Temple. Book early. They have tours till 10:00 in the evening.
Put it on your Jerusalem/Israel itinerary.
