This place was really interesting and definitely worth a visit, whether you're into history or not. As you walk through with a guide there are some amazing viewpoints and places to take photos. These tunnels are within the Gibraltar rock and is really fascinating. Our guide Sandy was great and she made this visit pleasurable and was very informative.

We were not told these tunnels were closed...and it's a long walk to get there! We purchased tickets at the bottom cable car station. It was the one attraction we really wanted to see

Walked all the way up to the tunnels, and was met by an obstructive 'official' who was determined that we would not gain entry. She informed us that only accompanied tours were allowed - fair enough, the one setting off was in Spanish and there wouldn't be an English speaking one today- this was at 2pm. Whilst we were there... More

Explains what life was like for the troops stationed in Gibralter. Slightly disappointing in that there should have been more exhibits

Really interesting and amazing to see. You just can't believe that these tunnels exist. The guide was very entertaining and informative.

In 1942 the Royal Engineers excavated a total of 52 kms of tunnels deep into the Rock in anticipation of an imminent attack on Gibraltar that never occurred. Whilst certainly a very impressive achievement, and the local guides certainly do their utmost to make one's visit interesting, this is little more than a fairly lengthy walk through featureless tunnels, with...

Was looking forward to visiting this attraction for the second time. Had told friends we were with how interesting it is and definitely worth a visit. However we were not impressed this time at all. Our guide annoyed me very soon into the trip by runnning down the British soldiers who had worked in the tunnels digging them out. He... More

Guided tour lasts 45 minutes. Tour guide really informative but also but some humour in the tour. Only a small section open to the public but enough to get a feel for what it was like during the War. Also close to castle to visit afterwards.

Very interesting piece of history relating to Gibraltar and the British forces in World War III. Good tour and informative guide. Best to go when cruise ships are not in port as can be very busy with over 40 people in groups.

Very impressive. You need to visit to appreciate the scale of the tunneling inside the Rock. Our guide suggested it was wasted effort as Gibraltar was not attacked in WWII. I believe it was worth it given the importance of Gibraltar to the North African and Italy campaigns.
