A must see show with friends or family. Creatively done casting images on the surrounding walls. Music was beautiful.

A must experience when you are in town, literally a 2 minute walk from the dung gate near the Kotel. Walk out of the Dung gate turn left, then turn right and it’s right there, they tell you and show you the story of the ancient city of David, where King David held court, right next to the holy Jewish temple, they walk you through the history of Jerusalem and then you walk through the ancient water tunnels it’s around a half mile trek in complete darkness to bring a flashlight, head lamp, or buy a flashlight for 6 shekels before you go into the tunnel, only cash or coins no credit card machines down there, the water is cold but only goes up to your shins, make sure you take the under ground drainage system back up to the top of the hill rather than the shuttle.

We took the guided tour of the excavations and the water tunnel. It was fun to wade through the tunnel and also learn of the engineering and historical significance. Definitely a must visit.

Very interesting guided tour of excavated areas, including history and walk through Hezekiah’s tunnel. The wet side of tunnel is well worth it. Bring shorts, wet shoes and a flashlight. It might be challenging if you suffer from claustrophobia but it is really cool

In March 2023 we took a Biblical City of David tour with Oren being our guide. What a great guide he was! As with the most of ancient ruins you need someone to explain, what you are looking at. Otherwise it’s just a pile of stones in front of you. Oren loves being a guide and it showed in everything he was telling us about. His enthusiasm was simply contagious. The pouring rain on that day did not really spoil the mood, because the facts we learned from our guide and the things we saw were so exciting. Oren was engaging the group with questions and stories. We would really recommend the tour and the guide.

Group guided tour and walking through the water tunnel in knee deep water was a memorable experience.

This site can be toured on your own, but we found a guide to be an absolute bonus (for a fee, of course). The archeology here is phenomenal, but linking it to the scriptural accounts augments tremendously.

We have just got back from doing this and loved it. We took shorts and flip-flops./sliders to change into at the visitor centre, and left our stuff in the lockers, do the water tunnel, which was an amazing experience. We were in it on our own and used phones as light, and I would strongly advise turning the lights off and standing still just to get a sense of how isolated you are in the centre. We then walked back to the start along the drainage channel, which ends up at the new excavations by the car park

The story of the discovery of Kind David's city - below the walls of the Temple Mount - is in itself a fascinating feat of archeological "detective work".

The tour through the excavations and the tunnels is not only an extraordinary experience, but it also confirms the biblical narrative concerning both the site itself and Jerusalem in general point by point.

Take the 3 hours or more needed for this visit and go. Highly recommended.
