Coloured lighting adds to the attraction which was included as part of our tour. Takes about thirty minutes to go around. We met the monkeys outside!

Great natural wonder to walk throug - however, some of it is a bit destroyed by the flashing colorful lighting and the modern pop music. But would have loved to be there at a proper concert.

Very nice and colorful, a must see. The light show is the best and hitting the café before you go in is a good idea.

Well worth a visit. Make sure you walk to the end and do the photos and reading on theway back, as it's downhill ther anduphill return. Stopping makes it much easier on the feet/legs

Interesting to walk through the cave and see all that nature has provided. The lighting that was placed in the cave made it all seem surreal. I can't imagine how wonderful it would be to attend a concert there.

This place has been carved out over many years and is fantastic. It's a gem of Gibraltar. It was amazing to see all the stalagmites and stalactites! It's up the top of the rock so either get the cable car up or brave the steps!

We had a taxi/van take us to the rock, tunnel and caves. The caves were amazing...not dark and damp as I expected. We didn't have a lot of time at each location but all three are a must see and the tour was a great way to see it all in a day trip.

We were amazed at what the power of nature had created. Humans have made the caves very accessible which walkways, lights etc so it is a comfortable visit (a fair few stairs of course) and easy to photographic. We did not go to the lowest level because we were on the taxi tour and had limited time but we don't... More
