Fascinating attraction. Of interest to all ages. Detailed information boards and interesting exhibits.My son has limited mobility but managed the walk down into and back from the tunnels. Well worth a visit.

The tunnels go on and on for ever. There are supposed to be a maze of tunnels inside the rock which are a total of 58 kms. The siege tunnels which are open to public is only a small part of it. Very informative too. I loved the experience!

a good visit and very interesting, particularly if you are interested in all things to do with the war, good photographic opportunities and good views from some points.

We visited the tunnel expecting it to be long and very interesting and it was. We saw how it was built, the strategic advantage and how the cannons were placed. Its a must see if you are in Gibraltar.

It could be a difficult walk if you try to take in the whole thing, but it seems as if you learn something new at each spot. It's fascinating to think that it was dug out by hand. Well worth the visit
