Had we been independently travelling I do not think we would have paid the price to visit, but as it was included in the taxi tour it was well worth the visit. The length of the tunnel alone was impressive.

Great to see the history. Was given a tour well worth it. It was not busy so we had a tour guide all to ourselves. Learnt loads. Wear a cardi or jacket as it does get chilly even when 27degrees outside

I was expecting more from this. Although parts of it were interesting there was not a lot to see. The guide was good though.

Definitely the highlight of our trip , you walk through about 400 mt of tunnels with guide and get a really good view of the airport halfway round . The guide was good but I am not convinced that everything she said was true .half a glass of water for a tunnel digger in a 16 hour day takes some... More

This place is okay for the first few minutes but after that it is just a total bore. When we were there they couldn't even be bothered to get a guide who could speak proper English. Do not go here, go to the siege Tunnels instead which have interesting models.

Well worth a visit, especially incorporated into a taxi tour, which includes many sights of Gibraltar. Very well decorated and you almost feel you were there at that difficult time! Enjoy-well worth a visit. Watch for uneven surfaces.

Brilliant for all history buffs. Not for people who don't like tight places. Or are unfit. Had a great time visiting the WW2 tunnels you can learn a lot on this visit. It's a must

Visited the tunnels as part of the rock tour. The guide was very knowledgeable, and it felt as though he was taking us back to 1950's trying to experience what the men went through to dig 26 miles of tunnels in 2 years. It was very moving I would recommend this trip to all ages, well worth the visit.
