Lovely view from Jock's Balcony

We visited as part of a cruise ship excursion and found it to be quite interesting. I thought it might be claustrophobic, but it's not too bad. We were slightly late in arriving... read more

As a local, this was the first time we had visited the tunnels and I must say that I was truly embarrassed by the quality of the tour. The tunnels themselves should be a hugely interesting visit, but our guide, a French lady that spoke poor English, clearly had little knowledge of the tunnels and history of Gibraltar and was...

We visited here as part of our tour up the rock, it was fascinating and hard to comprehend just how they managed to build the tunnels with the equipment they had. The tour itself was very knowledgeable and fascinating, and our guide was great. There is a fantastic view to be seen and you can take pictures. Definitely worth it.... More

A very disappointing attraction. The operators have worked out that a lot of people will want to visit this, simply because they are in Gibraltar, but there is no effort put in to make the most of what could be an incredible site. For £18 a head we received a tour lasting barely half an hour, which is frankly terrible... More

We came to Gibraltar in part to see this extraordinary feat of engineering which made the Rock and impregnable fortress. Like everything in Gib the relative lack of organisation takes some getting used to. Perhaps in the UK we have become too accustomed to everything being controlled and directed? After the long climb to the Moorish Castle we saw a... More

We visited as part of a cruise ship excursion and found it to be quite interesting. I thought it might be claustrophobic, but it's not too bad. We were slightly late in arriving so I think our tour was slightly rushed, but it was slightly disappointing you don't get to see more. The view from Jock's Balcony at the end... More

You have to pay an extra £8 to go in these tunnels, the guide was informative but the tour was limited and the set up was noting like the Seige tunnels. Guide had forgotten a key so we had to return the way we had come - don't know what we missed?!

Calling at Gibraltar as part of our Thompson cruise,we decided to go on a guided tour.Having visited before and seen most of the 'touristy' things,the military ww2 tunnels were next on our list to tick off.Luckily transport was laid on to arrive at the entrance,as it is quite a climb in hot conditions,this was an obvious choice,although quite a few...

An amazing story surrounds these World War 2 Tunnels-the size of them staggering. The entire population of Gibraltar could be housed in these as they were completely self contained with hospital,bakery,fresh air inlets,electricity supply etc. Well worth a visit-our guide(Keilan)was very informative-dont be put off by the price of £8-you should not be disappointed

Interesting, very nice guide but a little bit of a letdown, very little effort in showing the historical context...basically a walk through some tunnels with a lady talking to you
