This tunnel is a major feat of ancient engineering. Everyone must wear a protective had hat before entering the tunnel. As you might expect, the tunnel is dark, damp, and has sections where the ceiling is very low and the floor quite slips. I found...More

An amazing piece of engineering. Best to read about it before visiting. The guide could do with being a better communicator. This is my only criticism. Hard hat, which is provided, is essential. I did the intermediate itinerary, which I would recommend. A previous review...More

You cannot miss this engineering opera ! Yes it is difficult for somebody, please dress a good t-shirt and shoes, and don’t be so lazy when inside. The tunnel sometime is narrow and not easy suitable for tall people, but need a visit.

If you like history and do not only want to lay on the beach it is on the way from Vathy or Kampos. When you are there you start to thing centuries ago how they built it with thier technology.

The visit to this tunel is a unique experience. Being inside is interesting on its own but thinking how this was all man-made is even more breath taking. Deffenetly worth a visit. Just make sure to book in advance.

We went on the short “guided” tour. There where practically no information about the impressive tunnel neither from the guide or signs. Wikipedia has an excellent article describing the math and concepts behind the design and construction of the tunnel. The tunnel in itself is...More

No, I'm not sure why TripAdvisor has it for 2015! I was there in May, 2018 and it's definitely open (quite recently, in fact). Joe
