Private Tour: Western Wall Tunnel And Old City Wall Promenade In Jerusalem

See Old Jerusalem from above and below on a full-day, customizable private tour. Stroll along the Old City walls for stellar views of the Old City, and visit the Western Wall tunnel, an underground passage, to see a 1st-century wall and other relics close up. Entrance fees are at your own expense, but the itinerary can be tailored as you wish. Visit sites such as Jerusalem's Old City Market, and choose a pickup and drop-off point that suits you best.

Meet your guide at your chosen start time and Jerusalem location. Then, start your tour by air-conditioned car. If there are any sights you want to see, let your guide know. Your itinerary is customizable.

Enter Old Jerusalem by Jaffa Gate, and stroll along the Old City wall promenade and ramparts to admire views over the city. Stop at the Western Wall (Wailing Wall), a sacred Jewish site, and hear how it is a remnant of the Second Temple, built by Herod the Great.

If availability permits, descend into the Western Wall tunnel, a subterranean passage that runs above the underground 1st-century wall. See relics discovered with it, such as the 46-foot (14-meter) Western Stone, one of the largest stones moved by humans. If the tunnel isn't available, pay a visit to the Davidson Center, a museum dedicated to ancient Jerusalem with archaeological displays and a virtual recreation of Temple Mount.

Break for lunch (own expense), and continue to the Jewish Quarter to visit the twice-destroyed Hurva Synagogue and view its recreated neo-Byzantine interior. Then, head inside the underground Karaite Synagogue, built in the 10th century.

Finish with a visit to Jerusalem's bustling Old City Market before your tour ends.
