Don’t wear boots unless they are waders and why in the world would you bring waders. This was at the top of my “must-experience” list. We went 12 hours before we were scheduled to leave for the airport. Totally worth it. My 6’4” husband went with me—he would verify that the tunnel is a...

Don’t wear boots unless they are waders and why in the world would you bring waders. This was at the top of my “must-experience” list. We went 12 hours before we were scheduled to leave for the airport. Totally worth it. My 6’4” husband went with me—he would verify that the tunnel is a bit narrow in places. The entrance is the lowest ceiling point as well as where the water is the deepest. I had my heart for a quick snack when the sound of the water combined with the hobbit-sized entrance was suddenly there. I boldly went into the darkness armed with a head lamp (such a great idea, Babe). Hands-free is good. Our cell phone flashlight wouldn’t have have been helpful. It would have been a difficult (impossible) experience if there had been anyone in front of us. We were basically alone in the tunnel which meant we could go as quickly as we wanted — and even sing when someone had to be distracted from things. (We didn’t see any spiders.) The water was 2.5’ deep for part of the way. I wore Chacos—some people go in bare feet. The water wasn’t cold — it’s actually refreshing during the hot summer months. Our pants dried out quickly during the walk through the Davidson Center (the southern wall of the Temple Mount). It was an amazing day.

My third time through with a group of 40. It was a very rewarding experience - especially taking those who haven't been before but have just read and dreamed about it. A headlamp is recommended. Sandles are good too. You will dry out quickly 3 seasons of the year - and the water is refreshing on the feet so don't worry about it!

I was there several years ago. It is a must see and do for anyone interested in history. Well worth your time.
