Very interesting and amazing how the Rock survived a number of sieges over the 300 years it's been in British hands! Well worth a visit if you like your history!

Enjoyed these tunnels more than St. Michael's Cave. More to see. It was a stop on our taxi tour and we had about 20 minutes. Would have liked twice that really but at least we got to see these historical tunnels.

The history here is fantastic but I found the tunnels slightly dark and clostiphobic, but never the less I am so glad I went in and seen them. Very worthwhile

Entrance is included in the nature reserve entrance fee (£10 June 2015) and for that reason (ie, the other attractions you can get into!) it is great value. There is a surprisingly long walk through the tunnels and some of it is quite steep with a few steps. Information is via reading boards and press button spoken displays with a... More

A great guide called Crystal bought a lot of energy and life to the tour. Be aware that it gets pretty cold and damp down there though. You are provided with a hard hat which is definitely a must as some of the ceilings are really uneven and low in parts. There isn't too much walking as it is focussed... More

Once I got into the tunnels I realized I'd visited them before on my previous trip to Gibraltar 10 years ago, but had forgotten. Upon spending a few minutes inside the tunnels, I remembered being there, and why I'd forgotten. There's the odd interesting bit of information on the boards, but at the end of the day we were glad... More

Interesting if you're into that sort of thing, it is exactly what you'd expect, with Cannons galore, and some good views over the Rock and into Spain

Intriguing tour of the 20+ miles of tunnels within the Rock of Gibraltar (tour only covers a couple of miles). Amazing to see how it was built, used and maintained. To appreciate what Gibraltar is/was, I believe it's a "must see."
