One of the many tunnels on the Rock. This is much nearer the summit than others and offers great views through the rock which had previously cannons in place. Great history and fascinating to read the history of how they were made and usage.

Long and interesting history of these tunnels. Built roughly 1779 by the English and added to and transformed over time. There are many information boards explaining the history and showing cannons etc. If you're into war history- this is a fascinating place to visit! The tunnels are long and a good wind passage. There are some good views along teh walk.

We did this as a cruise excursion and were happy with it. The history was interesting but the views were amazing. Our excursions included a couple other spots including the monkeys at the top. Good choice for a half day excursion with views of the rock, town and Med.

An exhibition wasted, what a shame. Obviously massive amounts of history to it but hardly any information boards. There was an audio guide but we couldn't find out where to get these from - they're essential really.
Lots of walking so be prepared. Gets a little chilly the further in you go. Out of 35 miles of tunnel about 900m are open

We bought gibralter pass tickets so could visit all attractions on the rock. The nature reserve passes would have been cheaper and sufficient. We walked up the Rock, which was tiring and sweaty but worth it as got some great views and got to go at our own pace. People doing the minibus tours seemed a little rushed but we were able to take our time.

The great siege tunnels were interesting, and had some great views out from the rock

The tunnels were quite deep and steep… not Sui ale for disabled

Very informative .Info panels at many points on the way put things in context .A long way down and it seems an even longer way up, BE PREPARED , good views from the gun ports .You can see Africa on a clear day . With a taxi you can visit top rock and the castle on the way down .I hope the wwII tunnles are open too .I missed them .

We went for a tour here arranged by our cruise trip. We had transportation and a very good guide.
We walked from a parking area up to the cave entry. There was a lookout area with benches at the entryway.
We walked through the caves and heard about how they were dug through the rock. There are many small areas with informational signage. And our guide was very complete.
The walk through the caves was pretty easy. They are well lit and the walking surface is relatively smooth. There are some bumps and uneven areas.
The views from the lookout are expansive. The history was very interesting.

We had a tour booked with PandO for the Fortress Gibralter tour. This was cancelled and replaced with The Great Siege Tunnels tour because the world war 2 tunnels were closed for maintenance
We were picked up in a mini bus from the cruise terminal. The tour guide was a very personable local guide and gave the trip his all. We enjoyed a tour of the rock and then taken up to the siege tunnels. Given a wrist band for entry and we made our way up a pretty steep path to the entrance. The tunnels were lovely and cool after being outside. Very interesting, but we didnt have time to walk all the way down to the bottom of the tunnels due to the time the bus was leaving back to the cruise terminal. The views from the viewing platform, and the holes in the tunnel rock are spectacular

We stayed on the Sunborn ship which was very handy for everything . The dolphin trip was booked online by one of our party we were on the blue boat. It was excellent not many of us and a fabulous view of the dolphins . We even captured a hawk that was drowning after a seagull attack. It was still alive and cared for by own excellent crew. We then got a tour bus and went up the rock . 40 English pounds each excellent value as we had our cave entrance and an interesting guild included in the price.
