Francis our driver was very good. Taking time to explain everything during our trip. Cost included entrance to St Michaels cave which is amazing!!! Also feeding station for the local Barbary Apes. Great siege tunnels also visited but not enough time to explore completely.

Don't know why but Gib didn't appeal to me! Why do we want to make it as British as possible when we are in Spain? It was like walking through Exeter in the sun. Admittedly we couldn't do the cable car because it was closed but I still don't think it would have excited me too much. I think we... More

Stunning views, fantastic history and pound sterling! This is a fantastic place, a little Britain on the tip of Europe. I travelled from Torremolinos on an organised tour which was EUR32 including a tour of the rock. Well worth it and gives you about three hours to explore afterwards. We met the famous macaques who are very friendly. They do... More

A must when visiting Gib. The cable car was closed when we were there so we took a taxi tour. Great way to see a lot in a short time and we got some history on the way too. Can be recommended. Very funny apes, but be aware they can be quite agressive.

This is a must see if visiting Europe, my wife and I enjoyed it so much we are going back in 2016. Keep in mind, going in January means the gondola is closed for maintenance the whole month and other activities are limited as well. We chose to walk up and made it a little over 3/4 of the way...

Enjoyed seeing things I had read about as a child and as an adult was impressed with the history of this area.

the Rock has great views all over and with good weather it is possible to see the African coast. There are many places to visit and the monkeys are one of the attractions

The only reason I went was for the monkeys. Those mokeys are crazy, I have so many moments with those apes. So many awkward photos.
