The tour guide we had was great! Well explained purpose of the place and we enjoyed communion there. After visiting Church of the Sepulchre we had some debate over where the real tomb is.

A much greater impact than the church site. The docent was Enthusiastic and authentic. He told a great story and emphasized that we do not worship 'the site' but rather the person. In this case the site helps us to personally relate to the event....More

Yes, its easier from Damascus Gate - just go directly opposite the Damascus gate; and there are a couple of bakeries opposite, pick up their local bagel or two, its very nice and tasty.
