  • We were really looking forward to seeing these tunnels we had to book and come back as busy and only about 15 people per tour. Watched a short film first then put on a hard hat and entered the tunnels...  more »

  • Very good tour and interesting to learn about the passages. Would have been nice to explore further but due to passage blockages and small tunnel space, it’s unsafe to do so. Very polite staff.
  • Very interesting! Was great to learn more about the history of the city! And great value at only £6 per adult! Guide was a very much keeping to the script, but was amusing and informative all the same. The tunnels themselves are narrow and for the most part you can stand upright in them. There are however large sections where you have to stoop over to get through. Very interesting, would definitely recommend if you're interested, well worth the money.
  • Amazing experience learning about the hidden tunnels of Exeter. Hearing the cars through the rock and going over the speedbumps was a definite awesome thing to hear. The crouching and crawling made it even more fun!
  • Really enjoyed my visit, I have very poor vision, but this didn't cause any problems, tour guide very knowledgeable. Thanks to all the staff for their help, can't believe I've been in Exeter 21 years and not been before! Really worth a visit.
  • Been on this a few times now. Very interesting and useful for those rainy days when you have friends over
