Having visited many tourist caves around the world we were not expecting plaything particularly special on our visit was to the St Michael’s Cave but we were impressed. Great lighting that constantly changes and results in some weird effects if you use a camera without a flash. You can pay to enter if you don't have a combo ticket with... More

I entered the rocks and was amazed with the flashing lights you can have weddings inside believe it or not. We were told that concerts take place within these rocks. Must visit the rocks but be aware of the monkeys keep your belongings and most of all food hidden.

A truly spectacular sight with music and lights synchronized for maximum effect. Well marked out steps, however, be sure to wear suitable footwear because the floor can be wet and slippery.

The caves exceeded my expectations. There are steps down to the caves and then a path through the caves. They are lit up in various colours.

Really interesting but not for those who are unhappy with deep, wet, enclosed areas but well worth seeing.

This was an amazing place to take our group. The light where nice off too though. A bit blinding actually. Sort of take away from the actual beauty of the rocks and drops and woooow! When you go on the hiking tour it's a bit of a knee breaker. You have to crawl for part of you. So if you... More

A very popular place with mini-buses stacked up outside. Well laid out with wide steps and towering staclamites an stalagmites. Outside the monkeys sit on the railings ..

Was not really fussed about Gibraltar whilst on my cruise, but I'm oh so glad I did. We went with a local tour guide in his taxi €21 pp but for that we visited the caves, the monkeys and the war tunnels, his local knowledge was outstanding and he was very entertaining :-) . The caves were stunning and I... More

What a great place to visit. Never been inside a cave like this before and so glad I did. Very helpful staff at desk and all part of your ticket if buying the cable car and national park ticket.
