It was funny being dropped off on the Spanish side by our tour and then walking through immigration to the otherside to meet our British guides. We were in a little van for the crazy steep ride up to the "top of the Rock ". Stopped at the lighthouse, St Michael's Caves and other viewing areas. I was just excited... More

well worth visiting all the tourist sites on the rock, so much to see and so much to learn. Walked for around 30 miles in 2 days to explore everywhere and would recommend a visit.

The ride on the cable car was great as were the cheeky apes who for most of the time got on doing their own thing.We had to be careful with our bags as the apes are great at undoing the zips. The gift shop and cafe at the top were a bit pricy as was the price of the cable... More

If you're in southern Spain well worth a day visit to Gibraltar; take the cable car to the top of the rock for magnificent views of the med & over to Morocco. Careful with the hundreds of Barbary apes that are always looking to relieve you of any food or sparkly items you may be carrying. Worthwhile learning about the... More

We arrived in Gibraltar on a cruise ship and went to the government run tourist information bureau in the cruise terminal. When we enquired what options were available to see the tunnels, the young lady at the counter reluctantly tore herself away from her cell phone, and advised that there was no public transportation available to the rock, and that...

as you would expect, you get fantastic views from the top of the rock, and the rock itself is a recognisable symbol of Gib. you can see it for miles, and it reminds me of Gibs very own white cliffs of dover. not literally obviously but it ties the british theme in my mind. very interesting how important the rock...

We were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel by a taxi. The driver gave us a pamphlet about a tour and his personal phone number. We rang and booked the £40.00 tour. At the end when we came to pay we were charged £240.00 because we booked him direct. My advice is do not go to... More

There are few warning about these ape's attacking, but believe me, they do, and, unprovoked. If you have ANY sense, do not go, look at the photographs of my arm, 40 stitches, 20 of which were internal, and 3 days in hospital. If you have children, and you love them, stay away, if you don't have children, don't go either,... More
