Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Viewing platforms have been place to seperate the none believers from the Jewish worshipers. Some prayed at the wall rocking backwards and forwards, others sat quietly on chairs, while some wash as the joyous sounds of those dancing and singing add a melodic rhythm to the atmospheric vibe.. The women enjoyed a smaller space to the side as there were less of them. Go with an open mind and enjoy. Understand that although tight security is not onourous. Dress respectfully when in the city you don't know where you could end up and you don't want to feel out of place by showing too much skin.

    Tour of the underground right next to the Western Wall showing foundation stones, tunnels from several civilizations and how each built on the last. Excellent guide.

    The roads are pretty narrow. I love the beautiful stone. The views are breathtaking. It would be nice if there were more plaques with information.

    It's like a small pocket park with lots of incredibly old olive trees. You can walk around it really quickly and the Basilica is next door. Quite lovely though crowded.

    This place fits the descriptions on the bible. The way the tomb lay out. The way the rock would have been rolled to open and close the tomb. The Golghota, the Skull Hill, really looks like skull.

    A real market, bustling with locals doing their shopping. There are also many little bars and restaurants serving great food and local craft beer. Pull up a stool and watch the locals shopping and hanging out. Easy place to get into conversations with people. Very enjoyable atmosphere.

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

    Wish that I felt differently, but after seeing how close conflicting areas are to one another I do not think that peace will ever happen.

    It was pretty crowded and there was a service going on. I was in and out quite quickly but I took a few pictures. It's beautiful inside.

    Jerusalem is a magical city like none other. The ancient and modern history is everywhere you walk. The people are amazing and friendly. The food is wonderful wherever you go. Felt very safe at all times as well. Do not wait any longer to go!

    Fantastic zoo. Huge. Interesting. So many animals. The recommendation for a 2-3 hours visit is a joke - you can spend them an entire day easily and still not see everything. An absolute must. Ticket prices are very expensive but well, you are in Israel, everything is.

    Our guide brought us to this interesting site in Jerusalem. We walked through a steep car park towards a church. It has a Byzantine dome clustered with marble columns and large arch-shaped windows. It was built near the House of High Priest Caiaphas who judged Jesus.

    The Church of St Peter Gallicantu commemorates the triple denial of Peter to Jesus, his repentance, and their reconciliation. It was built over a ruin in 457 CE. The French Assumptionists rebuild it in 1931CE. Inside are displays of the Cockcrow, the Woman, and the Roman soldier. It was inscribed "Woman, I know him not"!  The Byzantine interior has mosaics inlaid and renaissance paintings, Gallincantu,  in Latin, means the Rooster Crows.

    Underneath the church is a dungeon jailroom and a visible manhole at above. It was used to rope down Jesus  into the dungeon cell, before the cruxification.

    Lovely mosaic murals of what the shops might have looked like during Roman times. A nice reprieve from the crowds as well.

    My lifetime dream came true when Allah granted me the opportunity to come and pray here. It is teeming with history but really unfortunate that politics reigns over the area and makes it so difficult for others to come freely. I was accosted several times by plains clothed men who said they were security staff which really can intimidate a tourist to say the least.
