“good insight into history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

I don't usually enjoy this sort of thing, but I did find this quite interesting. It gives a good insight into history, and there are some cracking views when you;re at the top. This is a must do ttraction for when you visit Gibraltar

“Brilliant attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

I loved this bit, well worth the walk from the top of the rock. Buy and all inclusive ticket at the cable car, well worth it. the tunnels were so much bigger and better than I had expected, lots to see and quite a lot of historical information available too, great fun!

“Pretty cool history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

My advice is to take the lift up to the top of the rock. From there walk your way down. One of the things to see is the great siege tunnel.

“See how soldiers lived and worked!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Tunnels are lengthy and steep in parts but so worth seeing for yourself. Our uncle was stationed here during the war and seeing where he had to work was really insightful. There really isn't anything to dislike - they are what they are - they are real and a part of our history.

“Informative and cool ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Both definitions of the word cool work here. It was a nice cool spot out of the heat and it was neat to learn about the history. There were quite a few little "exhibits" that were under construction when we went, but it was still informative with the other ones that were complete. It is a nice walk. For those in a rush, you can choose to turn around at certain points.
