I find the World War II Tunnels fascinating. How the engineers achieved this awesome task is mindblowing when you think that the technology back then was not as advanced as it is today. An incredible feat well worth going to see even for those who are not keen on history!

This was an amazing walk through tunnels that were carved out by hand. There were 21 cannons inside these tunnels. It is quite an extensive walk down through the tunnels having to duck in some spots so as not to hit your head. Rich history is found inside and is a must see when on Gibraltar.

You get to see 500 m of tunnel of the total 50km They are probably very impressive in total but the small section on the guided tour were a bit disappointing. Also we paid the mandatory £18 each for entry tickets - which cover various historical sites - and everything else had closed by the time we completed the visit,... More

My 18 year old son loved it. It's for all ages & fun. A bit difficult to go back up to the exit if you have knee issues but other then that amazing views.

What a fabulous experience walking through these tunnels & seeing exhibits of the Royal Engineers. There are cannon ports that lookout over both sides of the Rock. It is easy to understand how British troops stopped invaders entering the Med or the Strait of Gibraltar.

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
