It requires an extra fee but it is an attraction of interest for people who are interested in WWII history. Overall not as well organized as the Siege Tunnels. Exhibits along the way.

This exhibit costs an additional £8 on top of the ticket which covers Moorish castle, great Seige tunnels and St Michaels caves. It is a guided tour running on the hour. Our guide was Isabella, a French lady who spoke Spanish who had been doing the tour in English for just 6 months. The tour was really interesting and Isabella... More

We were lucky, we had a good guide who didn't push us for time. Don't go here with a taxi tour, they are on a tight time schedule and you won't get enough time to fully appreciate what you are seeing. Like so many places of interest these days, this is yet another that has people wanting to visit through... More

During a half term visit to Gibraltar with my son and grandson I visited the World War two tunnels. I had wanted to do this for some time as my father had served on Gibraltar during 1941-1943. When he came home on leave from there he brought a model of the Rock and a photograph of himself with a fellow... More

As a local, this was the first time we had visited the tunnels and I must say that I was truly embarrassed by the quality of the tour. The tunnels themselves should be a hugely interesting visit, but our guide, a French lady that spoke poor English, clearly had little knowledge of the tunnels and history of Gibraltar and was...

We visited here as part of our tour up the rock, it was fascinating and hard to comprehend just how they managed to build the tunnels with the equipment they had. The tour itself was very knowledgeable and fascinating, and our guide was great. There is a fantastic view to be seen and you can take pictures. Definitely worth it.... More

A very disappointing attraction. The operators have worked out that a lot of people will want to visit this, simply because they are in Gibraltar, but there is no effort put in to make the most of what could be an incredible site. For £18 a head we received a tour lasting barely half an hour, which is frankly terrible... More

We came to Gibraltar in part to see this extraordinary feat of engineering which made the Rock and impregnable fortress. Like everything in Gib the relative lack of organisation takes some getting used to. Perhaps in the UK we have become too accustomed to everything being controlled and directed? After the long climb to the Moorish Castle we saw a... More
