Not really all much to see but it is historically intersting. For the small P50 fee or whatever it is now... I mean really just over $1.25 you get to walk down a WW2 Japanese tunnel. The little restaurant is ok for a quick snack...

I visited with a friend from UK. A guide walked us through the tunnel which I guess is about 200m in length. It is well lit with a cement floor, and in places you have to duck as the roof is low. But there is precious little to see, and the guide could not tell us a great deal about... More

Nothing much to see, just a short tunnel but well kept with some interesting stories associated with it. Backpackers and tourists who wanted more important attractions to visit may find the place boring, but for a family who needs bonding or a romantic couple who don't have myriad of activities in their itinerary, it is a 'nice to know' place...

It was pretty much a waste of time. The guide was clueless as well as the front desk. Typical Filipino incompetence.

The 50-peso tour is a bit short. The tour guide was just fine. Interesting story of the tunnel. Nothing to see much. Just 3-5 spots inside.

As it has a privat owner not much of the original tunnel can be visited. As it rained, it was interesting to discover, that the water went through the stones. Got wet in the tunnel. Had pitty with the men who had to stay there for their duty. Never ever could it be comfortable. Besides the tunnel is a good... More

The Japanese tunnel is apiece of history. The tunnel was built during one of the world wars by prisoners and served as a base for the Japanese soldiers. The tunnel is apparently quite long but only a short portion of it is open to the public for safety reasons. The guide was great sharing her knowledge of the site. Over... More

Get a bit of history and close encounter with the balinsasayaw. Tunnel is quite short since most of it is no longer safe for viewing.

a very short tunnel.. nothing much to see yet a lot to learn .I think 50php entrance fee is too much for this low-maintenance attraction.
