A fantastic journey through an underground military camp. Lots of the tools and machinery are preserved and an excellent guide explained lots of the intricacies of the tunnels switching from English to German telling us all about the daily life of the groups. The only thing against the visit is that the prices are high to visit and if you... More

On a day visit to Gibraltar, you should not miss this. Skip the guided tour of the city, it's not that big. Take the tram to the top and walk down if you are able, you will see more and will miss nothing from the bus tour. You can walk along the road and you will get to this great... More

If you're on a sightseeing tour your bus will include this essential visit - if not you can take # 1 bus & after checking the Moorish Castle you just walk further up a very steep hill & take the 45 minute tour. You pay £10 to see the Castle which I've already reviewed & then pay another £8 for... More

Good to see and our guide, Sandy, was informative and caring of all our needs. There is a fair bit of walking and I would recommend wearing a jacket/jumper as the tunnels can be cold. Well worth the visit on its own. It is a shame the ticket incorporates other attractions.

We visited while on one of the Rock Tours. We were dropped off at the main entrance and after donning safety helmets were taken on a brief tour, about 30 mins, by our young guide. These are amazing tunnels that were dug by equally amazing men in what must have been very challenging conditions. Our guide whilst very friendly and... More

Visited the tunnels while on a day trip to Gibraltar, was nt sure what to expect. The guide was very good, explained clearly and had a good knowledge.Brought home to me the experience that men and women had to endure, almost felt as if some of them are still there. Balcony overlooking the runway very unexpected and even more interesting... More

You only see about 1% of the tunnels but still have to do lots of walking but unlike the siege tunnels these were dug with a bit more technology. The guides take you round and we were look because we had on guide, Tony, to the two of us. Very knowledgeable and explained all about the building of the tunnels... More

Must have been sheer hell for the troops who were working there. Could not believe they worked ate and slept there. I think it was too much to expect anyone to be submitted to that type of existence even in wartime.

We did a top of the rock taxi tour and added the World War Two tunnels this costs an extra £8 per person. When we arrived we were told that the next tour would be delayed until a coach party arrived which could be anything fron 45 minutes to an hour. We decided to go and look around the Moorish... More

A really interesting experience with a brilliant (German) guide who described the strategic importance of Gibraltar and how these tunnels were the quarters of 2500 allied personnel during world war 2.
