Rock Tour And Wwii Tunnels

Product Image
Explore the Rock of Gibraltar, an immense limestone promontory fraught with history from the times of the early Greeks and Phoenicans to World War II.

Over the course of this nearly three-hour tour, explore the British territory of Gibraltar with the help of your local, knowledgeable tour guide. Your guide will take you around "The Rock" and make sure you pass all of the sights on the Rock.

Explore the Rock of Gibraltar and learn about its storied history. The Rock was one of the Two Pillars of Hercules, the mythical gates that marked the furthest west Hercules was able to reach during his legendary twelve labors.

The Greeks and ancient Phoenicians also considered the Rock the limit of the known world, given the Rock's location on the south-westernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula and its perch along the Mediterranean Sea.

The Rock of Gibraltar's history also has a modern impact, too. In the midst of World War II, the Rock was an important naval base for the British Royal Navy. During your tour, you will get to visit an intricate, strategic network of tunnels dug by the Allied Forces on the Rock.
