Leave from the quayside and head directly to the British-Spanish border between Gibraltar and Spain. Your driver/guide will provide a brief overview of Gibraltar's history along the way, and will point out the areas you will be visiting at the World War II tunnels.
At Europa Point, site of the Trinity Lighthouse, you'll take in the stunning views this area affords -- this is where the raging Atlantic Ocean mingles with the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. See the busy Straits of Gibraltar, the African coastline and the famous Spanish Costa del Sol.
Continue to the Nature Reserve, home of the Northern Defenses Sector and learn about Gibraltar's fascinating and significant World War II history on the way. Hopefully you will catch a glimpse of the famous Barbary apes (Macaca sylvanus) roaming freely around the area.
Upon arrival at Hays Level, you will be met by your guide, who offers a quick safety briefing and introduces you to the World War II Tunnels. View static exhibit with photographs of life in the tunnels, including images of the tunnels themselves, dispatch riders, signallers, hospitals, and famous people who visited here. Learn about accommodation arrangements, the hospital, the waterworks and other utilities and see natural stalactites and stalagmites, a natural cave, the freshwater tank, and the stunning view from Jock's Balcony. Enjoy the numerous photos exhibited within this facility, and take a stroll through the caves at your leisure.
Due to transportation constraints, scooters, wheelchairs and walkers cannot be accommodated on tour. You can use your mobility aid to reach the transportation; then, it will be stored in the cruise terminal until you return from your tour.
