Behind the Scenes of The Western Wall

As a result of development and preservation work carried out within the last few years in the Kotel area, amazing and valuable discoveries have been made in the form of rare artifacts and underground complexes. These extraordinary findings, which have only recently been made available to the public, shed light on the special connection between the Jewish people and their capital city, Jerusalem. Participants in the Behind the Scenes tour will be able to see them first hand.
This tour is also unique in that it enables our guests to visit complexes from different time periods starting from the days of the First Temple to now. It includes a descent down under the level of the Western Wall and access to other underground areas that were discovered beneath the classic Kotel tunnels (this is a different path from the usual tunnels tour).
