If you are afraid of monkeys, definitely don't visit! They were everywhere - even on the cars. One of them actually stole my cardigan, so be really careful. Glad my dad got it back! From the top you can see Morocco, so it is great! P.S. Monkeys weren't really friendly.

Great to travel up by Cable Car and then walk down which takes between 1.5 to 3 hours. You need to be at the Cable Car for 9.30 am on busy days when cruise ships are visiting.

This is definitely a place to visit at least once in a lifetime. The rock, the caves, the apes, the ships coming through the straits from Atlantic to the Mediterranean, seeing mountains in European Spain and African Morocco at the same time, the history, the miles of tunnels, the shopping, good hotels and food all contained in a few square...

Loved the view, the monkeys, the fact that it in this day was no line. It is free Wi-Fi if it happens to be other people there. Short trip up and down. Again; the view is with the buck.

If you get the chance to visit, don't bother. It's scruffy and run down everywhere and we seemed to get awful staff everywhere. We went up in he cable car, found little information and the paths are overgrown with missing railings etc. At St Michaels Cave there was no water in the loos so they were overflowing, nowhere to wash...

Great trip went by bus and on cable car, special treat to see a 2 day old monkey. As long as you are sensible there is nothing to worry about, the monkeys won't trouble you. Views are spectacular

We drove to Gibraltar via La Linea and spent the day there. The rock of Gibraltar is stunning and can be seen from afar and there are many sights to see close to the summit and on the lower slopes. Gibraltar town was disappointing, densely packed and full of tourist shops and not a lot to do once you have... More

We took a semi private tour on a recent cruise stop to Gibraltar and the Rock was included in the tour. It was interesting to see up close the place featured in the TV commercials! Well worth a visit.

We stopped in Gibralter on a cruise and booked an independent tour with John Lopez from Gibralter Rock Tours. What a great tour. We saw all of the sites The Rock had to offer. Far and away The Barbery Apes made our day. You can't touch them, but just being so close was an unforgettable experience.
