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.

The guide gave us an excellent tour, explaining the history of the tunnel and pointing out the different areas. The guide even took some photos for us of my Wife in the tunnel prison cell. Short visit maybe 25mins but I enjoyed it.

May 2013 before flying back to Manila, our driver drove us to this place to explore. The tunnel is within the property of a small resort. Unnoticeable from the road. What catched our attention was statues of 2 soldiers clad in Japanese & Filipino guerilla uniforms guarding a grilled door below a tora-tora plane resting on top of a small... More

The tour guide was very helpful. Although, we had to take another taxi, since we have no idea of its location- NO Davao map available.

That may or may not go anywhere, and was dug by the Japanese during the war. There is a crashed plane above it. That pretty much sums it up.

I have been here twice (once for a get-away and another time for a friend's debut). I like how the tables are near the pool so that it would feel a bit like an inland resort wherein you can eat while your children and/or other people with you are taking a swim. I honestly feel it is quite small and... More

the tunnel was short and not much to see.....although it was part of history because it was built during World War II, i think an entrance fee of Php 10.00 would be enough for the people to take a look at the tunnel.....anyway, not much maintenance is needed to preserve it.

If you have an interest in history this is well worth a visit. The entry fee is only P50 which includes a guided tour. The guide I had knew the basic facts and it does not take very long. It is interesting that they did not find this tunnel until they were excavating for the Diversion road and that Japanese... More
