Most interesting to walk through these tunnels and witness the hardship of those who built them and who manned them.

Our guide was unimpressed that she had 24 visitors instead of 4 which made for a miserable tour. It was very difficult to understand her accent when she spoke English and she had no enthusiasm about the tour at all. Very disappointed!

Few people realise the important role that that Gibraltar played in the victory of WWII. Operation TORCH was panned in the tunnels dug deep into the Rock. There is an amazing amount to see and learn.

This tunnel system is massive as is the size of the tunnels themselves. There was apparently around 20,000 troops housed and working here during the war. You have to go on a group tour with a guide. I arrived on my own but didn't have to wait long for a group to arrive to tag along with. Our French guide... More

Had a great time in the tunnels. Our guide really knew what she was talking about. Would recommend this to everyone but difficult if you struggle walking (like my mum) hence only 4/5.

We got a cab up to the Jews Gate & walked along. Tickets cost £10 for everyting up the rock. We had a few hours to kill after a business trip. There is only one cafe closer to the cave & then we walked along to the other end to see these tunnels. Well worth it when in Gib.

My husband and myself had a great day walking on rock until we reached world war ll tunnels. The main gates were shut but not locked with no signs or information, as we walked in we were abruptly shouted at by a very rude English girl telling us that all tours had started, she then told us we weren't allowed...

Quite interesting to see and walk through. Don't go if you have mobility concerns. Most interesting because right here Churchill met and conducted plans with the US president to save Gibratar from outside attacks. There are various reinacted scenes along the way to help one see how this fortress within a fortress worked.
