The Department of the Environment, Heritage and Climate Change is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new audio tour system for the WWII tunnels, which is expected to result in an increase in the number of visitors who can take the tour. Following tourist visitor trends, the most audio descriptions will be available with a total of six languages: English, French, Dutch, German, Spanish and Polish. Should there be a growth in demand, more languages can be added in the future.
Tourist numbers visiting the Nature Reserve, Upper Rock have increased steadily over the years. In 2017 an impressive milestone was achieved with over 1 million visitors to the Upper Rock.
The Hon John Cortes, Minister for Education, Heritage, the Environment, Energy and Climate Change said "The Government of Gibraltar is continuously committed to investing in Gibraltar's tourist product. The WWII Tunnel audio tour system is a great example of this as it improves information on Gibraltar's historical sites with the aim of offering a world-class tourism product. I would also encourage Gibraltar residents to take this fascinating tour, to increase our overall appreciation of this important part of our heritage."
