The tunnels are amazing and give a glimpse to the history of the area. Be sure to take a tour with a guide. Don't miss the underground synagogue and walk down the long wall.

To understand this part of history and actually be able to walk it and imagine how it came to be is quite remarkable.

The tunnels are interesting and probably worth a walk but if you are pressed for time I would skip it. Historical site - lots of stories about the walls through history.

Make sure you book online before you come to Jerusalem or you wont get a reservation for this excursion. It is well worth it if you are a history buff. Its mostly history on the second temple.

I don’t know what access doors are locked but the exit area seemed safe. If they offer tours at those times I am sure they have everything covered.
