We booked a 3 hour English group tour on the City of David website. We had Ary, who lectures at Bar Ilan university on neuroscience, but gives the tour once a month because he loves history. Ary was excellent! The tour is really split into three parts. First, a 3D 15 mins video of the history of the City of David. Second, a walk past recently unearthed archeological exhibits dating back to the first Temple, and third, walking through the Hezekiah tunnels. There is a choice of walking through the water tunnel (mostly ankle deep but for a few metres it is thigh deep, and a flashlight is needed eg a phone torch), or a dry walk through the rocks. Most people chose the latter (it was a cold day). The views of Silwan and other parts of Jerusalem was an added bonus. The tour was excellent and a huge amount has been unearthed in the last 10/15 years. Ary brought the archeological stones to life. It was particularly interesting seeing how the biblical narrative is corroborated with recent archeological findings. The tour took just under 3 hours, starting at 2pm. Cost is 45 shekel a person including entrance fee. I would say a tour is a must.

If you are interested in Biblical history and archaeology this is a great place. To understand what one is looking one must have a tour guide, other wise it is a waste of time. You can book a guide online at the website of City of David.

An out of the way gem.

We walked down to the City of David from the Old City & started our un-guided tour at the entry place. Guided tours are available and probably worth the price, but we weren't there at the starting time for one. LOTS of steps/stairs but an incredible exposure to the really ancient city of Jerusalem....

We walked down to the City of David from the Old City & started our un-guided tour at the entry place. Guided tours are available and probably worth the price, but we weren't there at the starting time for one. LOTS of steps/stairs but an incredible exposure to the really ancient city of Jerusalem. Excavations were really interesting. We took the dry "Warren's shaft" exit because we weren't prepared to walk the water channel of Hezekiah's tunnel. Ending up at pool of Siloam was a real treat.
