“Must do tour”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

From here, you can go on an organized tour of the City of David- really worth while if you want to start to understand some of the politics in this part of the world.

“Where Jerusalem Began...”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

The visitors center at the City of David will provide you with all the info you need to understand the origins of ancient Jerusalem. Several different tours available in English--do not undertake if you have trouble with steps/walking, nor in the height of the summer heat. Plan on spending at least 3 hours here.

“Thiis is where King David built the first settlement”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Tough neighborhood, but that's Israel. The tours are great as you go back thousands of years. Make sure you have good flexible walking shoes as the terrain is slippery.

Reviewed 8 February 2012

Every time I have been there the guides have been great. They are interesting and know a lot of information. They have special fun tours such as a music tour and a tour with actors.
