Interesting but I guess I needed more information on 'The Great Siege'...... There were so many plagues to read but if you only have time to scan... there should have been a better overview at the beginning. It was interesting noting the 'holes' on the side of the mountain as we approached the island.

As a former soldier/officer 1961 - 1991, I found the experience profound and extremely interesting! The guide enhanced the experience by highlighting a few locations and I upset my fellow tourists by lingering far too long. I was totally absorbed in the history that I forgot to return to the bus..............

I learned things about their battles that were never taught in school. They used very creative means to protect their country from the Spanish. I would visit the .tunnels again and again.

Very informative throughout and, as long as you don't mind a walk down and back up, well worth going to the base tunnel exit for great views. The whole experience gave a really good insight to the times of the Great Siege.

For every step you take into the tunnels, you will be amazed at how they managed to build those tunnels and even get huge cannons and other equipment up there. The net of tunnels is very long, so I wish I had more time to explore it. Inside the tunnels there are small historical exhibitions in the different rooms you... More

It was really cool and fun to walk through these windy tunnels that were strategically drilled into the rock. You can see the holes in the rock where the British artillery was placed aiming toward Spain. Very intriguing place with a cool history.

I loved this bit, well worth the walk from the top of the rock. Buy and all inclusive ticket at the cable car, well worth it. the tunnels were so much bigger and better than I had expected, lots to see and quite a lot of historical information available too, great fun!
