Wet tunnel is the way to go. NOT for the claustrophobic, but a simply awesome, one of a kind, adventure. The fact that this was constructed thousands of years ago is nothing short of mind blowing. Water shoes are the best way to go and bring a headlight to avoid having to purchase. I recommend this half hour or so... More

at first hesitant, but once you start walking through the water tunnel, it is incredible that you are walking in a tunnel which goes back around 3 000 years ago...not for claustrophobics! good to have water shoes and wear swimwear. bring a flashlight or buy it at the ticket office. I recommend a reservation. they also have rooms to change... More

went with our twelve year old who loved it! Guided tour is really not necessary. If you can tag with a group that sings along, even better for the atmosphere! Footwear? crocs would be best but sandals are ok. I wouldn't recommend flip flops though. Torches are good to have (you can buy) but it's actually quite fun to turn... More

Walking through a tunnel cut out of the rock so many years ago was amazing. Some of our small group were a little apprehensive at the start, but once we got going they were fine. Walking through the tunnel means you are walking in flowing, cool water, which is a real treat during the hot Juersalem summer. At the end... More

Not for everyone. We had fun with our teen boys. The City of David guide was excellent. They sell cheap crocs ($10?) at the store for those of us who forgot waterproof shoes. Shoes are a must as the tunnels are very long. The water goes up to mid thigh near the beginning. My skirt stayed dry as I kept... More

This was a great adventure in old city Jerusalem! So amazing walking through ancient tunnels deep under the City of David, carved out of solid rock. You walk through water the whole way - most of it is calf deep, but it did get up just over the knees in 2 spots. You don't necessarily need a torch if someone... More

If you want to cool down, during the almost unbearable hit of the summer, Hezekiah's Tunnels are the place to go. An ancient water supply to the old city is both a history lesson and refreshing

The 2700 year old, 500 meter, water tunnel is deep underground and perfect for a hot summer day. For kids, and adults, it is a sure-to-please adventure. Be sure to bring a flashlight and shoes suitable for walking in water.

I visited the tunnels and found it to be amazing. I wore water shoes and carried a small flashlight. This one is a do not miss event.

I did this tour some years ago. It was a wonderful and memorable adventure wading through the tunnels which brought water to a besieged Jerusalem and saved her
