I have never seen anything like this in my life...it's quite unreal! If you are on `The Rock`make the effort and get yourself into the caves you'll be impressed. The guided tour is well worth every penny

This was simply beautiful. It is illuminated with different colour lights that seem to be times with the music. It's just majestic in there. Explore all the foot paths and take your time.

We weren't sure what to expect and with younger children we didn't know if they would enjoy the caves. I am so glad we did go because it was so much fun and we got some amazing pictures.

The caves are absolutely stunning! The natural beauty of the stalagmites and stalactites leaves you breathless. You need to be physically able as there are quite a few steps to traverse in rather dark conditions but it's worth it. I even proposed to my Fiancée in the caves!!!

We have many caves in the UK, and we have been to quite a few, but nothing prepared us for the beauty of this one - it is like a colourful cathedral, with stalagtites and stalagmites like we have never seen! I notice that some have said it was expensive to visit, but we did it as part of a... More

Beautiful - we didn't explore the interior because of mobility problems but the views were really impressive

Wonderful caves with the most amazing stalactites and stalagmites. Well worth visiting. Overpriced cafe nearby though with not particularly welcoming staff!

I never understood the majesty of this cave however other tourists thoroughly enjoyed this. I enjoyed it but did not appreciate it as much as others. Also ,the journey there is a bit of a pain but apparently worth it.

This is a real must, the photos I took just didn't do it justice. Absolutely gorgeous. Would have loved to experience a concert there

This was so stunning, I was worried that it would be enclosed but it was the opposite. It is defiantly jaw dropping and another must see while in Gibraltar
