Owner description: Come rediscover Biblical Jerusalem! Located just outside the Old City walls, the City of David is in fact the historical Old City of Jerusalem, containing archeological remnants going back 4,000 years. Come see for yourself where it all began...

The City of David is a good visit and the tunnel that Hezekiah is so fun to walk through. It has sometimes thigh high water, but mostly knee high. Bring a flashlight for this one, but don't miss it. Amazing 2700 tunnel that you won't soon forget

The ancient site built in the times of Solomon to bring quarried stone to the walls of Jerusalem. Today you can walk through it, sometimes a tight squeeze and often in water up to your knees but if the weather is warm, it is an awesome experience.

To walk below the ancient city of Jerusalem is just too cool! Make sure to take the official tour- it's not too long and it's so informative.

This was one of the great surprises of our travel experience. We had a great guide and she was a wealth of information. The layers of history were impressive to see as well as the history that we learned while traveling through time. A must see.

If you can walk at least a mile, don't miss this amazing tour. This is ancient history experienced at it's best. You get to see the original, ancient city of Jerusalem and how they protected their water source with these water tunnels. The guides are greatly knowledgable and add a lot to your experience. You can do the tour without walking through the water tunnel (Hezekiah's tunnel), but if you're going there, don't miss this unique experience. You are walking through a tunnel that was hand-carved, and it is so cool! Just wear shorts or roll up your pants legs and wear crocs (available in the market) or wear water shoes. You will dry out quickly. You can book tickets online at http://www.cityofdavid.org.il/ before you go (we did), or you can buy tickets on site. Be sure to pay attention that you are booking an English tour, unless you do speak Hebrew. This was tiring, but it was definitely a highlight for us and an experience of a lifetime. Also, we aware here that if you are renting a locker, you need a 10 shekel piece for the locker.
