We had made no reservations but just stumbled upon this tour. Isabelle (a tour guide) did not hesitate to aid us and include us in the group. She proved very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and gave us an engaging and very intersting tour of the WWII tunnels. We definately recommend isabelle as your guide if you are planning to take this... More

Was quite looking forward to this but only critique was that our your group was large as 3 buses turned up at the same time. This made hearing the guide difficult if you were at back. Also we couldn't all fit in same chambers at same time. Our guide Joe was very informative and his passion for Gibraltar was evident.... More

The tunnels were very cool to visit. Quite a history lesson to be learned here. You also have an amazing view of the very unique airport of Gibraltar.

Visited the world war II tunnels today! Be advised you need to visit on a guided tour! Which can be arranged at the site, but times might not match your schedule and can be far apart. Although a Tour had just started the "Spanglish" guide at the site was so kind to show us around anyhow! Amazing to hear about... More

This is something to see. Our guide was fantastic. She made everything come alive. It's a fairly unknown fact that "The Rock" has an extensive tunnel system throughout that was very much used during WWII.

Very interesting, the guided tour is worth while doing. Be aware that if like me you suffer with vertigo the views can be 'exciting'!

Guided tours are given through the maze of WW2 tunnels in 'the rock'. Sporting a colourful miners hat you are shown displays of living conditions and just before the end of the tour an amazing look out point over the airport.

On arriving at the information office we asked about visiting the tunnels to be advised they were very busy but the lady phoned and asked if there was any space. luckily at 12.00 but it was... More

The tunnels themselves were very interesting especially since they were initially dug in the 1700's to monitor who was coming into the Mediterranean Sea! But the truly enterprising part is how they were used in WW2! Don't miss this if you visit Gibraltar! Safe and fun for kids and adults...even older ones!
