We were fortunate to be given a guided tour by miltiary personell which with the excellent information and tour we were surprised with the events and history surrounded the tunnels in the war time.

we had a guided tour through the tunnels which was very interesting, and gave a real feel for life in the tunnels during the war. There are many more tunnels in the rock which are not open to the public for security reasons.

We had this included in our rock tour trip and was so worth the visit. Thoroughly enjoyed this part of the trip,though our time in the tunnels was limited due to time constraints on the tour.

Here you can see how Gibraltar is full of tunnels everywhere and the scale of it is just crazy. And the history told by the photo gallery was very touching. Worth a visit

Tony, our guide, gave an extremely informative tour within the tunnels that gave humour and reality of the past. A must see place to go when on the Rock.
