  • A great place to cool down after the walking from one side of the rock to the other - low ceilings in places, and great views of the northern part of Gibraltar from the gun placements with a fair amou...  read more »
  • On our rock tour has given us our taxi driver to the great siege tunnels driven. Here too, we have had to pay no additional admission on the basis of the booked tour. In the tunnel, you can experience history. Clearly the origin and the meaning of the gun emplacements is brought closer to visitors. From the establishment you have excellent views of Gibraltar.

  • This feat of engineering is a must visit, the use of these tunnels during World War 2 was a decisive factor in the untimate victory for the allies. 
  • One of the few things to visit in Gibraltar. Worth it! But get a "taxi tour" (get the full package) to get there. It is not worth walking the 3hours up the rock.
  • This is a 'must see' and really quite unique. You get spectacular views across the airport and to Spain from the gun ports. From these c 34 miles of tunnels bored through the Rock itself one can appreciate why GiB was such an unassailable fortress. The tunnels themselves are surprisingly large in cross sectional area, (with the head height of a small house room) - which should mitigate feelings of claustrophobia which some might suffer. I would visit again and make sure I allowed time to see it all properly.
  • Well worth a visit, in fact probably a must cist to get a sense of Gibraltarian history and politics, amazing engineering and the lengths and depths people will go to in war. Great views and if you are not a 'war buff' less boring than it sounds.
  • The tunnels are nice (and cool) but if you choose to walk between all the points you might feel a bit disappointed. Nice views from the gunports and the battery outside.
  • Nice piece of British - Spanish history. It's a pretty long walk tough so come prepared.
