Climbing the Rock was the reason for our trip to Gibraltar. We walked a short distance from the O'Callaghan Elliott Hotel, then climbed all 3 sets of Mediterranean Steps, and were greeted by a monkey at the top of the stairs. We had read the warnings about them and had kept our distance, but that proved too difficult at the... More

I was 22 weeks pregnant and managed fine going up on the cable cars and walking around the top of the Rock. The views are amazing and the apes where so cute but very inqistive so make sure you hold onto your handbags! Only thing that I found to be negative was the attitude of the Rock tour taxi drivers!...

did trip by taxi. Apes a little excitable to say the least! not everyone was enamoured of them. Saw the caves which were well worth a visit. Also went to the museum, cathedral and lighthouse. Better to go by taxi as the trip on the top of the rock involves a lot of walking if you go on cable car.

So glad to have done and experienced the rock of Gibraltar. As a present for a friends birthday, this was a fantastic time and experience. Loved by solo travellers, families, couples and friends, this place has historical caves, monkeys and stunning views. It was so good we just had to go twice. :)

The Rock is not only memorable for the amazing monkeys, they seem cute but they are actually wild, they shouldn't cause you any problems as they are used to the attention but keep hold of your valuables because they will steal them at every chance. The caves and their involvement in the war is very interesting if history is your... More

A must see! Take a cable car and go up the rock to see the monkeys it their habitat, enjoy the views of the coast of Europe and Africa, watch the plane landing on the Gibraltar airport and take lots of lovely pictures :) Beware of the apes - they tend to grab everything they think is edible!
