On time for our slot (you need to book - we went to information bureau and booked) but 20 minutes late starting as waiting for a tourist bus to arrive.

Born here that is. As we learned from our super-knowledgeable guide Eric, the Bond character came to life in the mind of Ian Fleming during his war time experiences in these very tunnels.

Well a bit of explosives as well. Talk about dig for victory back home, they dug for survival, hard to believe they lived down here during the war. A must visit if you come to Gibraltar.

We really enjoyed this trip, mainly because we had a guide who told us all the information about the use of the tunnels in the war, and brought it all to life.
