Great views and Apes

An awesome location with interesting history. The Barbary Apes were fun to see and the views into Spain/ Costa Del Sol and Africa were great

Great to see the Apes although most of them did not look happy to see us which was hardly surprising when a group of Spanish turned up and started teasing them with news papers and sticks.. Horrible to watch and Security did not seem to care much either. The Rock itself although magnificent from a distance is looking awful close... More

So we departed our cruise and many taxi drivers were begging us for our business, but I decided to walk it instead and I must say I have no regrets, we walk through Casemates Square and then through main st, at the Casemates Square they were people hanging around and people playing instruments, places to purchase food, but we continue...

We went up the Rock of Gibraltar by a mini bus as unfortunately there was an hour wait for the cable car on a very hot day! We stopped at a couple of viewpoints, the caves and lastly the monkeys. The caves are very good, and the monkeys were funny to all ages!

We were cruising around Gibraltar for about an hour and we came accross ONE sign pointing to the cable car and ONE sign with monkey drawn on it. That was it. We followed the signs but on the next roundabout there were no more. Gibraltar is full of roundabouts and one way streets which is nice to see and experience... More

If you go to Gibraltar, you have to go to the top. That's what it's all about! There are abundant tour opportunities, but going on your own offers more time at the top and is a lot cheaper. The only caveat: don't try it when one of the big cruise ships is in port. The day before we went, a... More

Was looking forward this trip. Used the cable car service. The views were magnificent but enjoyed it from inside the cafe only as we were scared of the apes who clearly had an eye on our bags.

Views are outstanding! An early morning cloud bank lifted rewarding us with clear views of the mountains in Morocco. An unforgettable experience to view Africa and Spain simultaneously. In one direction is the Atlantic with the Mediterrenean in another.

We visited the top of the rock twice and would recommen using the cable cars as the tour was twice expensive and didn't get to spend a lot of time seeing the monkeys. Really enjoyed it and is definitely a must if your visiting Gibraltar.

This is truly one of the wonders of the world. Great to work up or take cable car or even one of the many minibuses. Great history behind it and the locals are very welcoming.
