Fortunately I was spoilt as I served in Gibraltar a few years back and had a better knowledge of the tunnels than the tour guide. I only returned because my wife nagged me to see the monkeys and walk through the tunnels. It was a worthy experience if you haven't been but you only get half a story and like... More

Had to go at the groups pace, but so worth it. It's amazing to see all the history in a place like this. Well maintained and safe for me to bring my new baby and donthe walk with her in an ergo.

There are scheduled guided tours which take 45 minutes and you need to pay extra for in addition to the general Rock ticket but well worth it. You can only visit these tunnels with the guide who in our case was very good.

You can get lost in your own thought and imagine the history. Cool after a afternoon in the sun seeing all the other sites, easy walk downwards and of course you have to walk up again, but hey its well worth it.

This is a fascinating insight into a part of history that little known about generally. As it is well known that Gibraltar is of static importance because of its position you see the logic of these tunnels. What I find difficult of how workers we recruited to do the work and the reality of the way they actually treated which... More

As part of the tunnels within the Rock it's self it is a wondrous sight to visit. There are different displays that give the impression of the way the tunnels were used. Sections with triple bunk beds and storage areas too. Some of the displays look really life like others not so.

Came to this place as an excursion booked on my cruise. The guide was very knowledgable about the tunnels and had some funny anecdotes too. As the Rock of Gibralter has many tunnels only a short amount open to the public. It takes about 45 mins to walk the tunnels and there is a viewing platform near the end for... More

Well maintained and Information filled attraction. Long and steep at times (it is a tunnel) but fine for the average fit person or waking age child. Don't take your granny with her walking frame! Great for just the views over Gibraltar and Spain. Not expensive, best to include this on an organised taxi tour. Would I go again, NO. I've... More
