    Nice tour. Takes about 3 hours. Our guide was not the best and at times difficult to understand. You can either take the dry path or wet path through the tunnels,

    Glad you had a great time! It sounds like you are describing Hezekiah's Tunnel which does have water flowing through from the Gihon Spring, and which is part of the Biblical City of David tour. We would love for your to join us on this...More

    Dear Brangit The entrance is on the left-hand side of the Western Wall. There is a waiting room or you can stroll outside. The entrance for the excursion and the exit is the same place.. Enjoy
