This was my 5th visit to Israel as a group leader and my first visit to this site. Everyone (30 people) enjoyed it. Our Israeli guide did a wonderful job explaining the history of the site before we went in. *(side note your guide in Israel can make or break your experience so to speak. Make sure you have a good one). As other reviewers have commented, be sure to have pants that you can pull up (I travel with the type that zips apart to convert to shorts and they worked perfectly). The water is mid-thigh high (I’m 5’4”) for the first 50 ft. then drops to ankle deep the rest of the way. Wear comfortable water shoes or water sandals that strap on snuggly (Teva, Chaco, etc.) No flip-flops. I highly recommend a headlamp style flashlight so your hands are free. It’s about a 600 ft. walk in very close quarters so not recommended for someone who has claustrophobia however there is a “dry path” they can walk along and meet you at the end if tunnel at the Siloam Pool they are currently excavating. There are several steps down to get to the tunnel however they are only a few at the end. The temperature of the tunnel and water is comfortable and consistent throughout the year.

Great for a summer visit.

This is a wonderful experience, especially if you're going in the summer. Definitely do the water tunnel in the summer (the water is pretty cold). I would recommend this for any child under 6 or 7.

Great experince - Highly recommend this - Great for kids, too!

As part of our tour experience, we thought we would skip it and meet them later, So glad we didn't! We took the dry route as the others took the wet route. Lots of information and history to absorb. We saw families with their kids taking part.
