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. That because there were no guides nor tours. I was there mid afternoon on a Saturday and was greeted by the only worked I saw and invited... More

A fantastic journey through an underground military camp. Lots of the tools and machinery are preserved and an excellent guide explained lots of the intricacies of the tunnels switching from English to German telling us all about the daily life of the groups. The only thing against the visit is that the prices are high to visit and if you... More

On a day visit to Gibraltar, you should not miss this. Skip the guided tour of the city, it's not that big. Take the tram to the top and walk down if you are able, you will see more and will miss nothing from the bus tour. You can walk along the road and you will get to this great... More

If you're on a sightseeing tour your bus will include this essential visit - if not you can take # 1 bus & after checking the Moorish Castle you just walk further up a very steep hill & take the 45 minute tour. You pay £10 to see the Castle which I've already reviewed & then pay another £8 for... More

Good to see and our guide, Sandy, was informative and caring of all our needs. There is a fair bit of walking and I would recommend wearing a jacket/jumper as the tunnels can be cold. Well worth the visit on its own. It is a shame the ticket incorporates other attractions.
