Most people have heard of "The Rock of Gibraltar" but until you've seen it, walked on it and through it you cannot really appreciate the magnificence of "The Rock". We had a wonderful guide provided through Inside-Out Rock Tours (please see my TA review). The views from it are spectacular. Learning it's history and walking through the tunnels is awesome....

Would have scored higher but the Spanish make it difficult for you to get into Gibraltar, there are long, slow quest for getting in and out. Once your in Gibraltar it can be quite difficult to find parking. Apart from getting there and the parking situation Gibraltar is a good day out, you get great views from up here, the... More

We wasn't sure how we was going to explore Gibraltar, and then we was approached by a lovely man from Rock Tours. He said he could take us to all the must see's in his minibus. He told us we didn't need to pay him until the tour was over and we were happy with the service. Well Adrian was... More

No trip to Gibraltar is complete without a trip up the rock. One word of warning get your tickets early. We pre-booked out online before we arrived and this saved us queueing for two hours, especially if I cruiseship should be in at the time of your visit. Once up the cable car, the views are magnificent and well worth... More

My last visit to Gibraltar was over 30 years so I was keen to see what had changed. After arriving on a coach trip from the Costa Del Sol area we arrived at the border and experienced around a 30 minute delay. After arriving at the coach park we joined a tour organised by Persian Rose, the driver/tour guide was... More

This was a trip down memory lane having served here in the Royal Navy. It has changed dramatically but for the better. Main Street is a throbbing shopping metropolis, and the Marina has sprung up from reclaimed land and is architecturally well done. The cable car to the top was busy and it was a hot day but worth the... More

Queued Up - Tickets really quick - queue to get on Cable car - seemed to take forever. Once up there however, monkeys everywhere - keep your eyes open because they find every nook and cranny to sit and sleep - stairwells, trees etc

We visited here by travelling up in the cable and then walking bak down. This was a great way to do it as the views were spectaular and the monkeys friendly. A slight downer was the plethora of taxi tours on the walk back where the drivers were breaking the law and feeding the monkeys to attract them. It also... More

Not enough planning for tourism one cable car and long queues for the cable car and taxis. Just google it and you will see what I mean.
