“This is the REAL "Old City of Jerusalem"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

Tucked away in a part of Jerusalem that you will never go to unless you know its there, the City of David is a fascinating, living archaeological park with ruins dating back more than 3000 years. Highlights include the incredible water tunnels - one dry and one with up to 70cms of water. I was there twice in 6 months and they had opened a whole new viewing area in that time. They are constantly uncovering new finds and opening them to the public for viewing. If you are fit, the Herodian street that leads from the bottom of the hill to inside the Old City is a tough walk, but well worth it.

The whole city of David should not be missed. The movie is great and their guides I. English are good. See the remains of the Israelites. Your ticket will also gain you entrance to Hezekiahs tunnel

“Nice to Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Very informative, and definitely worth visiting if you are doing a walking tour of the city as I did with my friends. Did not do the paid tour part - just the one that is free.

“Great historical overview!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

An archaeological site that brings the formation of the David's City to light via a short movie and visitation to the actual excavation of the City David built to unite the tribes of Israel. Our tour guide was truly outstanding and her enthusiasm made this a great experience. The city tour offers many different ticket options and can be tailored to the length of time you wish to spend, and if you have young children with you.
