Tunnels were excellent with static displays showing each stage of the tunnels and the history of Gibralter. Quite a long walk but worth it if you love history or marvel at mans ingenuity.

You get a full history of the military history of the defence of the rock, & magnificent sea views . The dioramas & battle mock ups are most informative. Well worth a visit

Amazing to see what humans can do, very long tunnels, not hard to explore! TIP: We were very lucky, as soon as you come out of the "immigration inspection", you will find a Tourist Information Centre. They offer a very good value pack for £22 or £25. You will get a local van driver, he will drive you around explaining... More

Very informative with well laid out tableauxs and depictions of how it would have been in Napoleonic days. There was large information boards plus electronic information for those who were visually impaired. Would recommend if you are staying on the minibus that you only go half way down as you there is only one way out.

To see how the rock was defended over centuries of battles, this is a must see attraction in Gib! Loved the tour guide who was very knowledgeable. Was quite a bit of a walk!

It was great to see the difference between the tunnels built in the 18th century and those excavated in the 20th century.
