Western Wall Tunnel
Guided tours of the Western Wall tunnel must be booked in advance. What is now far underground was once open to the sky. You will see "Wilson's Arch" - part of the support for a bridge connecting the Temple Mount to the Upper City, along with large halls from different periods, including one that was perhaps the Jerusalem council meeting room or city archive from the Hasmonean period. Water channels, and the largest block of stone used in constructing the wall are also visible. Models and an audio-visual display enable visitors to understand the various sites.

we will be in Jerusalem in Dec. and I understand the tunnel tour is very worthwhile and needs to be booked well in advance - - please advise; is there a way to book the tour on-line, or just by phone. Thanks,
I had been to Israel once before and had the unexpected pleasure to go again on a prayer team. The first time I did not have the opportunity to tour the tunnel. After taking the Tunnel Tour the second time made the whole trip totally worth it just to get to see that. It was awesome! I just felt like I was on an Indiana Jones adventure!
At the time of our tour, it was in November during Rahmadah. After going through the tunnel we were not allowed to go through the streets as a safety precaution. So we had to return back through the tunnel the way we came. Not a problem! I totally recommend it to others all the time. I have the privilege to go to Israel this November on another prayer team and can't wait to go through it again. It was definately an overall highlight of my trip and my life.
