These are a fascinating tunnels with a lot of history, they are long and it is a little bit cold inside but worth going to. You need to pay the extra money from the walking ticket to go in but this does also include some of the other attractions. They are an amazing feat of workmanship

amazing. these tunnels are quite educational and extremely interesting, even for non history buffs. My recommendation is to walk to the end without stopping as the path is all down hill. Then start back up, stopping at the exhibits so you can catch your breath and let your leg muscles relax a bit.

Well worth a visit to these fascinating tunnels. Hard to believe these were dug initially by hand. Unaware of their importance in repelling invading forces, but when you get inside you can see why it was so hard to storm the Rock.

We really enjoyed our tour of this tunnel. It was interesting to see how there was a complete "city" within the tunnel used during times of war. The views out of the "windows" were really great, and it was fun to watch planes takeoff and land on the runway below. This is a piece of history worth seeing.

Visited as part of the Nature Reserve ticket, which is very good value for money if you manage to visit a number of sights. The Great Siege Tunnels are a great way to educate yourself in some history of the rock and cool down on a sunny day. There are loads of information boards as you walk down the main tunnel through the rock and there are some good views of Gibraltar and Spain from the vantage points. The tunnels do slope down as you go through the complex so expect a bit of effort on th way back to the entrance.

We stayed on the Sunborn ship which was very handy for everything . The dolphin trip was booked online by one of our party we were on the blue boat. It was excellent not many of us and a fabulous view of the dolphins . We even captured a hawk that was drowning after a seagull attack. It was still alive and cared for by own excellent crew. We then got a tour bus and went up the rock . 40 English pounds each excellent value as we had our cave entrance and an interesting guild included in the price.

Gibraltar is basically a big rock and a strategic choke point to the Mediterranean and port of the British Empire. This rock has been important in many wars for over a century. There are 34 miles of tunnels in this rock but the Great Siege Tunnels are where the tourists go. There is some up and down walking in both directions. There are many holes in the rock where gun emplacements once were located. Very historical! The African coast is 15 km away and can be seen on a clear day. The Rock Apes are everywhere and they are not shy. You may want to include the tunnels with a trip around the rock with a local guide.

We bought gibralter pass tickets so could visit all attractions on the rock. The nature reserve passes would have been cheaper and sufficient. We walked up the Rock, which was tiring and sweaty but worth it as got some great views and got to go at our own pace. People doing the minibus tours seemed a little rushed but we were able to take our time.

The great siege tunnels were interesting, and had some great views out from the rock

The tunnels were quite deep and steep… not Sui ale for disabled

Incredible journey back in time to the 1700's with meters and meters of tunnels to explore and displays to see with audio guide at each point. Were not historians by any means and loved it. Not to be missed and gets you out of the sun for a while to cool down.

This is an easy walk and a fascinating story. Good signage and information with cameos of how the tunnel was built, manned by the military and the effect it had on GB's permanent presence there. Well worth a visit.
