An alive piece of history. It was very nice for me to learn from so closed the history of Japanese Philippines war. A very educated about the tunnel history guy had undertaken to explain us everything. It was really nice visit.

Despite the tour being quite short, it's packed with a lot historical FYIs. The fact that I was able to enter this tunnel which was used during the WW2 by the Japanese and explore it was really amazing. There's a small Buddha shrine there, the "bartolina" which was used for keeping the war-slaves (you can take a picture inside!), a... More

If you have even the slightest interest in WW2 history you will find it worth a visit, it's only P50 and you will get an informative guide to show you.

This tunnel is disappointing! Too short and nothing much to see. It takes me less than 15 mins to savour the sights in the tunnel. I have seen many other tunnels which is more unique than this. I will not go there again.

This is not a big attraction but I enjoyed it. The tunnel is very short because they have closed off most of it due to safety concerns. The entrance fee is 50 pesos and comes with the tour guide.

The tour is short and quick, but I guess one that would really pique the interest of history buffs. Since its just a short tour, it would be a good idea to include this in your itinerary.

Why an entrance fee? Okay, it's a historical place - the tunnel has always interested me. But the food? Forget the restaurant.
