    A very well done museum. Very respectful to the Holocaust and it’s victims and survivors. We rented the audio and it was very informative.

    Essential experience, but try to maintain a spiritual or historical focus and not get distracted by street sellers or tacky tourist traps. Modest dress is advised. No need to pay anyone for any site, so don't fall for that trap either. Best to go in the morning, but be sure to check security warnings, especially in late afternoon and evenings.

    The Dead Sea Scrolls, Herod's sarcophagus, the incredible old city 3D map, are just a few of the incredible things you will see at this amazing museum. This is a can't miss if you visit the Holy Land.

    Fantastic experience to be at Jerusalem's wailing wall at different moments of the day. It doesn't feel inappropriate to be part of a highly spiritual ceremony as a non-jew, as long as you follow the rules and regulations.

    Orthodox Christians certainly have to visit the Mount of Olives, from where Jesus ascended! There are also a few Orthodox Monasteries & Churches, very important Biblically! The Mount of Olives Hotel makes perfect sense for your stay while there! xo~A

    The Church is the shelter to Christ's crucifixion and burial sites. It protects the Golgotha rock where Jesus was nailed to his cross, died and also the place where he was buried before resuscitating. It has a very spiritual meaning to Christians, and the Middle Eastern vibe of the decorum makes it all the more so special. However, the way the place is administrated (you can read about it in any guidebook) means it's almost dereclit in places. It can also be very crowded and queues to visit the Tomb of Jesus can strech over an hour. Do not hesitate to come back at different hours of the day as the light can change the atmosphere quite drastically.

    The western wall itself is a site to see. This experience really adds to the overall history and majesty of this place. The guide was very informative and being up close and personal to the layers and layers of wall that have been built over thousands of years is truely awesome for any history buff! My son was a little bored but he's 16... if you like history and something tangible this is for you.

    We were accomodated right next to the market & it was great idea. Every day we stopped by to have breakfast, dinner or just a quick snack.

    I really recommend just to go and get lost in the alleys. Try everything you can from the local specialities. And definitely come back in the night, it has different vibe, bars open and music start to play & people dance.

    We discussed with locals the issue of bargaining & were told, that they don’t bargain here for food, just when buying expensive things like antiques - quite different compared to the muslim quarters markets.

    This peaceful, beautifully maintained garden is the perfect place to reflect on Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.

    The Garden Tomb is a place for Christian worship and witness.

    Staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable.

    Worth a visit on the way up the mount of olives. The garden is well maintained and not trashed which I appreciated. Looks just like you would imagine! There are several can drivers at the entrance that will drive up to the lookout for pretty reasonable amounts. I paid 50 shekels for my group of 3 top to bottom with a short visit at the top for some pictures.

    Excellent experience to walk thru tunnel. We had bright headlamps which helped greatly. We took our time and had a good size group. No rush. Just enjoy the sights.

    We had an excellent tour guide for the underground tunnel tour at City of David. Yehuda was informative and entertaining. Most of the tour is in fairly large underground spaces or outside at overlooks. At one point in the tour there is an option to split into the dry tunnel or the wet tunnel. Before you choose a tunnel, there is a short film about how the tunnel was made and how it was discovered We chose to do the dry tunnel since it was a shorter walk in closed quarters and enjoyed the quick hop back into history. Both tunnels ended back at the Pool of Siloam together. It is not a wet pool but a historically significant one nevertheless. We chose the shuttle back to the visitor's center but there were other areas that one could walk through and explore as well if you want to make a whole day of the experience.

    This museum is one of the best historical experiences available in the area. Definitely worth the time and effort to go through. A little physically challenging in some spaces, and it is large, so takes a while to get through, but I always enjoy the effort and always learn something new each time.

    Yes, you can visit the temple mount. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it is currently open to non-Muslim visitors beginning at 7am. Check with the guards the day before you plan to visit to confirm.

    The entrance is up a ramp and you will go through security first. They may ask your nationality. (I did not need to show a passport but it might not be bad idea to bring it).

    Once you go up the ramp, you may be asked to put on a scarf if you are not dressed modestly. You do not need to cover your hair, but as at other religious sites, women should cover their knees and elbows.

    Yes, you can walk around. I went just after 7am and it was very quiet and peaceful. Take a look, take some pictures. Admire the history and be respectful that it is a religious site.

    When leaving, the exit is different from the entrance. You cannot return to the Temple Mount through the exit which is another spot in the old city. There will be security there and the street will be blocked off so anyone who you want to meet after your visit would have to wait outside of the barriers.

    This just has to be done by foot, carrying a cross from the very Garden of Gethsemane to Calvary and the Tomb of the Holy Sepulchre! This is the single most important part of our pilgrimmage journey!
