One of the highlights from our trip. The caves are set out well and cater to those with varying amounts of time to spend. The history is fascinating and the views help bring it to life. Note, the WWII tunnels are separate and not part of the reserve.

See these brilliant 18th Century Seige tunnels, constructed to protect the Northern Defences of Gibraltar against the Spanish sieges. Real history in the raw, as these were constructed mainly by hand.

Via The Rock Gibraltar. Cable car to top and walked to tunnels..be aware if a hot day as a long walk, parts up hill. Tunnels interesting but hot. You have to walk down them and walk back up, the same way! Uphill! In heat its hard going

Part of a taxi tour and very impressive if long, lots to look at as you walk to the end and back up the tunnels, take a drink if possible as it is hard work

Had our 4 and 2 year olds with us, and they really enjoyed it. Takes about 20 mins all in all, you can buy water at the entrance and remember, you need to walk all the way up the tunnels again :)

The tunnels were very interesting. Our tour guide was a colorful British man, who walked a fine line between fact and fiction into his presentation. It was entertaining, for sure. The tunnels are well lit, well preserved and gives visitors a break from the heat. It's definitely worth seeing.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tunnels. Very informative. The only down side was that the taxi tour only gave us a limited time at the tunnels. Also only the first part is wheelchair accessible as there is a steep descent into the tunnels.
