“Wow!!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

You have to get reservations for this experience. We did it a night and it was awesome. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job unfolding the story of the building of the temple, it's destruction and the meaning of the Wall to the Jewish people. We stood just a few feet where the Ark of the Covenant rested. Seeing the outside wall at night in lights was beautiful. A must experience.

“The Western Wall Tunnels”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This underground excavation is wonderful for it shows the true height and depth of the walls that protected the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

Well lit and comfortable to walk, the tunnel tours are given in many different languages.

At one point, you will stand before a huge rock that is believed to be the closest point to what was the Holy of Holies of the Temple.

The tour guides are most impressive in the depth of their knowledge. We have taken tours in Hebrew, English, and French and all were excellent.

There is a miniature model as part of the exhibit as well.

Advance reservations are required, and can be done on line. Be sure to check your language preference. There is a cost, but it is incredibly modest. Be on time, for they start the tour on time!
