Private, Kid-Friendly Tour of Jerusalem
From April - October:
We’ll kick things off with a hands-on archeological visit to the City of David’s ancient water tunnel. As the kids splash their feet through the ancient streams, we’ll explore the water tunnels and learn about King Hezekiah’s water protection system. From there, we’ll move on to see one of Jerusalem’s most iconic sites: the Western Wall. We’ll discuss how people have journeyed over the years to this site, following in the footsteps of former pilgrims from thousands of years prior. As we travel through time, we’ll learn about various battles and uprisings that have taken place within the City Walls, weaving tales of the heroes and villains associated with these events.
From November - March:
The Western Wall stretches along almost half a kilometer, but today, the part visible to all at the Western Wall Plaza is a mere 70 meters of it. The tour of the Western Wall Tunnels allows visitors to reach the segments of the Wall hidden from view, and to touch the original and special western wall stones that tell the story of the Jewish nation. Visitors to the Western Wall Tunnels walk through ancient and fascinating subterranean spaces with exquisite archeological findings, such as large stone arches, water pits, an ancient water aqueduct that ends at the Strouthion Pool, and more.
