Clothing for Western Wall Tunnel tour?

I read somewhere that if one goes on the Western Wall Tunnel tour, which I have reserved in advance for the end of April, one will encounter wet conditions and might slog through water halfway up one's legs. Is this correct, and what kind of shoes and clothing should one wear for this tour?

No, that is incorrect. You are mixing up the Western Wall Tunnel with Hezikah's Tunnel which is located in the City of David. The Western Wall Tunnel is 100% dry! You were the same clothes you were wearing to tour the Old City.

We have tickets also for the Western Wall Tunnel Tour. Where do we go to wait for the tour? It is on the Men's side so I am confused about how to enter that area of the wall. Thank you.

The usual entrance was behind the men's side. ( not in it) However, there is major construction going on and the entrance has been changed. However, if you are standing in the Kotel Plaza, facing the Kotel you will walk towards your left.It is near the rear in the tunnel. There is a large sign--you will not get lost and you will laugh that you felt concerned.

The same guidelines as for the Western Wall, so that the shorts have to reach your knees.

Depending when you are going it is not shorts weather! Many seem to feel that you can wear shorts all year long in Israel--you can't. The temps go down. Every year I see freezing tourists in Jerusalem! When are you coming?

I'm leaving for Israel on Friday. Have my tickets for the Tunnel tour next Wednesday. I'm hoping for warm temps and sunny skies. Will probably be wearing capris as I did 6 yrs. ago.
