Our group of a dozen went through the wet tunnel. The water came up to mid thigh on me, and was not all that cold. At first it was fun and I was good with it. However, at one point the passage was not just...More

Amazing to see. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Not for the claustrophobic. Definitely worth the time.

After all the religious sites, try something very different. We did the wet tunnel and took head torches. I'm so glad we did because it meant our hands were free. Not for claustrophobics it does get quite narrow and low in places. I enjoyed it...More

Walk through biblical history here. 2 Kings 20 and 2 Chronicles 32 mention that King Hezekiah built a water tunnel. It is 1,720 feet long. Water still flows through it. Take flashlight!

I visited this place with a guide, and it was good too. I learned many things that I saw only in the bible.

A guided tour is good but there isn't anything you can't read on the signs or go do this on your own. One thing to make sure is whomever had Shawarma and hummus the night before goes in last.....cause u don't want to be stuck...More
