For everyone interested in the history of Gibraltar this is a must see. I never knew that there were about 55 km of tunnels under the Rock of Gibraltar and the WWII tunnels are only a fifth of that. The tour was informative and it was unimaginable to think that Thousands of military staff survived there during the war and... More

The entrance area is free and full of interesting displays and well worth a visit. However, it costs £8 per person to take the tour deeper into the tunnels. The tour guide gave us lots of interesting information, all gleaned from the pages of 'After The Battle' magazine, and showed us a bunch of tunnels that all look the same... More

It is expensive unless you want to see other attractions! We decided to walk to the World War II tunnels located just beyond the entrance to the Moorish Castle. (A steep climb from the town centre). We paid 50 pence each to enter the Upper Rock Reserve on foot and continued to the World War II tunnels to discover that... More

Writing this review partially in the blind because I only got to see the initial 100 meters or so of the WWII Tunnels, up as far as one could go without a guide.
