An absolutely amazing tour, loaded with historical facts, many of which dispel common thinking. How many tourist sites make you wear a hard hat? Little know fact, they had to call in Canadian miners to do a lot of the work.

You have to go with a guide and the tour lasts just under an hour. Very interesting to see what has been dug inside the Rock with accomodation storage areas showers and great views over the runway towards Spain.

Although classified as the World War II tunnels, in actual fact, the first tunnels in the Rock, were constructed at the end of the 18th Century, over 200 years ago. This continued throughout the 19th century, until the immense growth in preparation during the war period, which now covers over 50Km. While the tunnels are so extensive, your tour will... More

52km of tunnels dug by Royal Engineers assisted by Canadian Sappers. (You don't get to walk the 52k's). Very enthusiastic & knowledgeable guides leading the way.

The tunnels are extensive but the tour covered perhaps 1% of them - essentially some of the storage areas overlooking the Spanish border. Worth a visit to see the engineering but the key areas overlooking the straights were not included. Poor supporting information, just a few miscellaneous photographs which our guide told us were actually propaganda shots taken in London.... More

My uncle Peter who lives in Gibraltar has a wealth of knowledge about the tunnels and it is so fascinating to go on a 'tour' with him,

It was one of the better attractions on the rock, very interesting and informative. But a bit pricey. A bit claustrophobic in places.

We visited as part of a tour. Our guide really made the image of the troops being in these tunnels come alive, especially for my children. Very atmospheric and a little spooky.
