The tomb and area to view Golgotha was a highlight of our tour. The volunteer guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Our group was allowed to have communion and a time to pray and sing several hymns after the tour.

We were a large group - 50 people. They provided us with a guide and a place to worship. This is a well managed site that really gives a good impression of the tomb that Jesus may have been buried in.

Our tour guide Edgar was a sweetheart who provided a tour to match where we were coming from, an evangelical perspective. We learned much and were even able to take communion as a group. Very meaningful on so many levels. Definitely worth the stop.

Archeologists have pretty much proved there is no real claim to this being the actual site but it's nice for the Protestants to have something. :) And certainly much more like what we all wish the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was like! The gift...More

I visited Jerusalem just to visit the Garden Tomb and was not disappointed. Very peaceful, probably loveliest area there.

Wonderful. Everything I'd thought it would be! You actually get to see Golgatha -- I had no idea you could still see it present day! It very clearly looks like a skull. They have done a wonderful job with the garden. It was so peaceful...More
