I cant say much about the cable car ride because my eyes were closed going up and down, but the view from the top is spectacular

Kto lubi widoki, to znajdzie tu coś dla siebie. Piękno zatoki gibraltarskiej i te cudowne młaki, które żyjąc na wolności podchodzą do turystów, aby poprosić o coś do jedzenia. Polecam. Who likes views, it will find something for themselves. The beauty of the bay of Gibraltar and those wonderful marshes, which live in the wild approach for tourists to ask... More

We Travelled up to the top of the Rock by the Cable Car We were met by some of the Rock Apes , who made themselves know in their own way. The views across the Bay/Gibraltar and toward Africa were spectacular as it was a very clear day. There is a cafe/shop. The Shop stocks the usual tourist type items

If you're in Gibraltar by way of cruise ship, I do not recommend relying on the funicular to go to the top of the rock on your own! With the time available, you will be limited with what you are able to do and see - and there's more to see than you might expect. It is a significant walk... More

I loved this place. We had a guide named Carlos drive us up to the rock from center of town. I highly suggest taking a guide instead of taking the cable car. He explained a lot of the interesting history of the rock as well as took us to other places on the way up like St. Michael's cave and... More

We drove to see the Rock of Gibraltar and found an entire city with other attractions such as caves, mosques, shopping, trams, etc. What really surprised us was when we were leaving, the traffic was backed up to allow a British Airways plane to land and taxi across the main exit road. We thought we would just ride around the... More

Just love Gibraltar. The atmosphere, friendliness. But do not be put off by that awful programme on TV Britain in the Sun. That is not a true reflection of Gibraltar and the Gibraltarians. First visited Gib 53 years ago on honeymoon (my husband is Gibraltarian and came to Uk when 1 yr old). Have visited Gib many times since our... More

If you want Gibraltar of your to-do list and you have time to kill at the Playa del Sol (which you will have), visit the Rock and get quickly out of Gibraltar. The monkeys are the real stars of the Rock, they will keep you entertained. Of course, the views are nice, but you can get those inland all over... More
