A magnificent piece of mining engineering all dug by hand. Allthrough the tunnels detailed audio and visual explanatoms were given.The views from the gun turrets were fantastic. The downside would be the steep and wet inclined that might be a problem for some people.

Interesting experience in these tunnels. The displays are clear and useful and it is worth walking all the way to the end (down hill) and then retracing your steps pausing to take in the displays and various views. You can combine this with most attractions in the upper rock area on a combo ticket. If you want to include the... More

I loved these the first time i visited, it's very interesting seeing the tunnels in the rock, and the history behind them. the first time i went i had to dash off so didn't fully explore. the second time i went i spent more time and explored a bit more, then you realise how deep in the rock you are...

We made a quick stop here while on a tour of Gibraltar and enjoyed the stop. We went in on our own and just read the signs at each stop along the way. The views were impressive and we are glad we stopped in!

We enjoyed the tunnels, but we had a better time at the WW II tunnels. It takes awhile to see the entire area. We like most folks turned around about half way. There are view out of the tunnels that are very nice. Not quite sure why, but they just did not hit our sweet spot.

The guide was great and the private tour was a real mystery. We got helmets on heads and were led away through the long way to somewhere else on the Rock to exit.

Quite a bit more to see if you aren't on a cab tour - nice not to have to rush around and take your time. Some great views to be seen out of the embrasures.

It may have been because it was toward the end of the day but we ere not impressed by the tunnels - they have been dug out of the limestone and there are many spots where there are explanations of the history of the tunnels. We did not even get to the end, turning around just over half way. Views... More

we didint go all the way in but it looked quite good from what we saw. The tunnels go deep in the rock and are full of war items

Great to see how they did things hundreds of years ago. But like most things in Gibraltar not so good if you have walking problems
