An attraction that I would suggest to go on foot as the views are great and it is a great physical activity plus not that long to climb. One thing though, beware of monkeys and I mean it! We had some crisps in the bag and they are very sensitive to any sound that sounds like food, even if it... More

We went on a tour bus (Thanks Kevin) as the Cable car was closed. We went to St Michael's cave, the war tunnels, the Moorish castle and Kevin introduced us to the Apes. It was lovely and the tour bus operator all seem to know the Apes and care for them. A personal touch for only another £2 each but... More

We like apes, so we specifically made a stop at La Linea (Spanish town adjacent to Gibraltar) and walked across the border so we could go to the rock and see the Barbary apes. It was perhaps a 3-hour deout but we enjoyed it because the apes were as entertaining as expected. The rock/cable cars to the top are a... More

We booked our tickets up the cable car (you get free wifi for 3 hours which was a bit wasted on us as we were there to explore, but I imagine for some it's a nice extra!) Had a look around the viewing station at some stunning vistas and then set of in search o the macaques! We found them... More

Don't waste your time! After waiting for over an hour in heavy bumper to bumper traffic to enter Gibraltar, we repeatedly got lost at least ten times due to extremely poor to non-existent signs!!!! There is very little parking available and the place is overrun by bad drivers, scooters and motorcycles. Once we finely reached the cable cars, they had... More

We visited the Rock in February 2015. It was very windy and the cable car was closed on the windiest days. We were able to go up in cable car but had to get a mini bus back down.The views were amazing. The Apes were very entertaining. Just don't take food. They will do anything to get at it. They...

Took the Gibraltar official tour at £22 for approx an hour and a half. Our driver & guide was Douglas who was both funny & informative. It was money well spent as I saw everything I wanted to see & missed nothing!

I've been on the cable car & also the taxi tours, both are worth doing. The views from the top are insane, you can see miles in all directions, worth doing. Don't like the apes that roam free, just hold your belongings tight & don't get any food out.
