“must do activity”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Western Wall tunnels visit was one of the highlight in our tour of Jerusalem, and our Bar Mitzvah trip; it gives you an in depth understanding of the history of Jerusalem and the Temple. We were in the tunnels as part of a bar mitzvah program where the bar mitzvah child guided our group through the tunnel (with the help of a guide). Prior to the bar mitzvah, the child learns about the history and the guiding for about 2 months with the help of a guide (in our case we were doing the preparations remotely through Skype, and our guide was exceptional - Eliezer Finer). This was an unforgettable experience for both the bar mitzvah children and the guests!

“See this to learn the City”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We saw nearly everything in Jerusalem and this was among the most educational. The tour begins with a model that is used to explain the history of the city's physical construction through history. This background is then used as the tour moves through the underground passages and along the Western Wall of the temple. We walked away with great insight and is was a treat to enter near the south of the Western Wall and emerge well to the North near the Via Delarosa.

“Under the Western Wall”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Exploring the tunnels reveals the layers of history related to the Wall, the temple site, and Herod's building campaign. Our guide was extremely informative and upbeat -- although the content was more than we needed to appreciate the experience. Highly recommend adding this to any visit to the Old City.
