Hezekiah’s Tunnel Tour at Jerusalem’s City Of David is Historically, Experientially and Team building wise exquisite. “Orrin” is the head tour leader and expertly walks through the archeology, history, scripture and physical tunnel itself. The tunnel experience follows a detailed explanation of the tunnel history. The tunnel is primarily 18 inches deep with two dips to mid thigh level near the front of the tunnel. The tunnel bottom is quite smooth, while the height and width change but can accommodate any adult of reasonable weight. Multiple flash lights are needed during the short 500m walk. Tennis shoes or well fitting water proof sandals worked well.

The City of David is an archaeological site which you can visit and see remains from settlement during the Canaanite period. At the site you can go underground to Hezekiah’s Tunnel (maybe not if you’re claustrophobic), Warren’s Shaft, the Pool of Siloam). We’d recommend a guided tour so you know what you’re looking at.

The City of David is an archaeological site which you can visit and see remains from settlement during the Canaanite period. At the site you can go underground to Hezekiah’s Tunnel (maybe not if you’re claustrophobic), Warren’s Shaft, the Pool of Siloam). We’d recommend a guided tour so you know what you’re looking at. There’s lots of walking and stairs and hills so you need to be physically fit. Enter via the Dung Gate and head to the visitor centre. There are bathrooms, kiosk and a shop.

We went to see the spectacular night time show and were not at all disappointed. It would be difficult to pitch this correctly, catering as it does to audiences with a diverse understanding of Jewish history, ranging from the very learned to those with no knowledge, so shaping the show around a lesser known story means that most visitors will leave learning something new. The technical aspects were very good, and the surrounds are spectacular and evocative. Our group comprised adults and children/teens and we all enjoyed it. I would recommend this show, and using the free transfer shuttle from the First Station was very convenient although it would have been a big help if the vehicle itself and the departure point were clearly signposted.
