For a 50php fee, I suppose it was pretty alright. The tour was kinda short since the owner was only able to purchase and preserve about 100m or the actual tunnel. But I'd say it's the most important part of the tunnel. If you're into history, it's a good place to go to. Tour guide would tell you the stories... More

During the WW2 the Japanese occupied this part of Mindanao specifically in Davao City and the suburb. The tunnel interest us. to make a comparison of the Cu Chi tunnel in Vietnam. This one is just a tunnel with some other few stops. The entrance/reception area is nice with some landscaped portion. There is the hotel too and the restaurant.

Very interesting place to go. (If only I can continue walking until I reach the other end of the tunnel. I'm curious on how far the tunnel is and where it will lead me. People can always say the distance, but it would be nice if you will really see and experience it by yourself. They have accommodations, swimming pool... More

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
