A must do by Taxi tours ,Well worth the price for us was only 30 euros each.Total tour time 1 1/2 hours did not feel rushed and had plenty of time to see all . But we are told that over 3hours is needed to see all of St Micheal;s cave.

The views were amazing, the monkeys were cool, but throughout the visit we kept thinking how much more could have been made of this attraction. The base station for the funicular is a little bit outside the tourist downtown area and there is no signage. The base station and the top station are both oddly laid out. When you get... More

First time visit to Gibraltar on a recent cruise and we decided to visit the Rock. We found it was much easier and cheaper using the mini bus taxis, and after seeing the queue for the cable car it was definitely a good decision. The taxis are usually waiting outside the cruise terminal but unfortunately for us the ship docked... More

A great location to enjoy a break in the sun with all the back-up of a UK approach to getting things done! Probably the best points are a laid back culture and the wonderful history.

Took the cable car up there which was good but at the top people were unsure of where to go after exiting the car, the car operator just shouted something quickly, pointed in two different directions, then left? Everybody just seemed to look at each other quizzically, then just wander off in different directions not knowing where to go first?... More

This was our second trip to Gibraltar, the first was very much shorter. This time we stayed at Both Worlds, with the Rock towering above us on one outlook and beautiful bays on the opposite outlook. The Rock certainly is awesome, its history is awesome, the tunnels within are awesome. To realise that Neanderthal man may in fact have an... More

GIBRALTAR is worth the visit. 15 euros from the little tour operator on the left inside the bus station door. The lady there is English. The hotels will charge you 40 euros and public bus is 9 euros 40 each way and does not actually take you into GIB. The coach may pick you up and drop you off outside... More

Everything is pretty cool about Gibraltar - the crazy airplane landing strip, the town, the fish market, the glass blowing factories, but of course - we are here for the ROCK. We took the cable car up as it was incredibly hot and the kids were young. We did walk down and that was quite enjoyable. The restaurant on top... More
