Jerusalem has long been in a "tough neighborhood", having to serve not only as the capital of both a historical and a contemporary Jewish state, but also in need of providing a means to survive a siege. Tunnels were used as water conduits and storage, as place of refuge, as a means of travel in the Temple area. These were able to be excavated only after Jerusalem was re-united in 1967 after from illegal Jordanian rule following the separation of the city per the 1948 war of Israeli Independence. Appreciate its history and that it is part of a more than 2000 year Jewish presence - regardless of Moslem protestations to the contrary.

Fascinating. Very helpful girl at reception helped us understand a range of tour options. We did not join a tour so plenty of time and peaceful.
There are LOTS of steps and stairs
We had beach shoes that were good in the water and the slightly muddy Herods tunnel.
Take a torch.
Water was 70cm deep at the deepest.

The Western Wall tunnels were not available to tour extensively 25 years ago. The tours one can arrange by just walking up to the entrance now, are first rate and a must. One of the stops underground is the closest one can be to the Holy of Holies, at least for now.

No matter what your religion this tour is impressive. How they built the Temple mount and being under the Western Wall within feet of the one of the Holiest places on earth is amazing. We had Michael as our guide, and I must admit he was probably the best tour guide at an attraction I have ever had.
