The tour guide was great, explaining everything in English. The price was only around 5 euros for entry and from beginning to end took about 1.5 hours. If your in Arras it would be a shame to miss it.

Well worth going on the guided one hour tour through the tunnel network. Excellent displays and films. A moving experience with the many NZ soldiers helping digging the tunnel network under the town of Arras.

The guided tour is fantastic and well worth the small €7 fee. A wonderful insight into the battle conditions for the allied troops during the 1st world war. A recommended experience.

A very Interesting tour with personal audio and also a human guide. The steps from the limestone caverns to the outside hell of war is particularly poignant.

Who knew about the WW1 limestone caves that were used by the Brits, Canadians , Aussies and kiwis to fight the Germans. Quite interesting and historical info on trench warfare..

Not difficult to find but it could be better signposted as this is an important part of the Arras offensive. Opens about 10.30am and after buying tickets for the tour took a walk around the small exhibition centre (which is a bit haphazard) and looked...More

Tours are fully guided and timed. Don't know if they do advanced booking. We turned up on a quiet Sunday morning and waited 20 mins for our tour start.

You will be lucky to find a group that has pre booked. It's a brilliant place to visit and obviously very popular. Keep checking in for cancellations.
