I took my five year old daughter through this tunnel and she loved it. We had the head lamps that looked like miners lights and water shoes. In the middle we stopped and turned the lights off it was pitch black. The water was very cool and that was good because it was a hot day.

If you are a bit adventurous you must experience walking through the tunnels. It is a confined space and approximately 500 meters long. Try and do the ''wet'' route where you wade through the water.

We've done this twice and while it's not for the faint of heart, it is an amazing experience. Yes, you get wet but most of the time you are walking in 12 inches of water so wear shoes that can get wet.

So...i was a little reluctant as I get claustrophobic as does my 12 year old but everyone said we'd love it...so a few deep breaths and decision made! The whole tour lasts about 3 hrs but don't be alarmed. ..It doesn't feel this long and it's only the last part (about 25 mins) that you are actually in the tunnel.... More

We enjoyed our visit - we didn't take a guide - no need! Just come prepared with water shoes or sandals and flashlights. Water cool and reaches just below the knees. We had a great time at this site!

This is one place that deserves a good tour guide's explanation. Don't go if you are afraid of the dark and enclosed places, however, you can always use the light from your phone or just enjoy the coolness in the dark as you journey along where kings once went.

A real fun experience but not for the claustrophobic. The tunnels can become very narrow and some parts we were walking bent over and sideways. Be sure and wear waterproof shoes and carry a flashlight (available for purchase when you enter the tunnels). Great fun and a cool, refreshing experience, especially when it was over 100 degrees outside.

Get wet and feel like a part of history too. If you are very "wide" or very claustrophobic, maybe not a good idea - but we went with friends who are quite big and also quite uncomfortable in confined spaces and they did just fine. It is actually a fun cave-like experience - but you are in the tunnels (bent... More

Not much has changed here in thousands of years... Walk back in time and experience walking through the bible IN the footsteps.... There's not much extra room, so if you're claustrophobic, you might want to do the dry route, or pass...
