I was in Marbella 40 years ago and it was impossible to cross from Spain to Gibraltar. Now, you literally walk across the street (and pass through the border). Gibraltar is amazing. No wonder it is an icon recognized everywhere on the planet. The caves both natural and man made are amazing. The views from the top (don't miss the... More

You cannot visit this part of the world and not visit the top Of the Rock. It really isn't as far as it looks to cover it all on foot. You can see the whole territory from up on the Rock and it hides so many tales from history. It also makes a fantastic running course. Hill training up the... More

This is the number one attraction in Gibraltar and you simply cannot miss it. The views are breathtaking.

I used the cable car to get on top and it is a must see. It is possible to walk all the way to the top but I was in a bit of hurry. Be careful about the monkeys. All the announcements regarding plastic bags and food are correct. I saw a tourist that it was eating in front of... More

Take the mini bus taxis from outside of the custom's office. Tour costs £22 pp and lasts a couple of hours and you get to see all the sights. We were incredibly lucky with our driver, Juan Plata (0035054020527) who filled us with stories and anecdotes about Gilbraltar that made us (family of four, children aged 18 & 15) laugh... More

The cable car trip was enjoyable but not much at the top when you get there - some terraces to enjoy the views but the most basic of cafes and that was indoors. Would have been much better if we could have sat outside. (I do appreciate the apes may make that tricky.)

We went on a coach trip from Benalmadena, spent the day there. Went up the rock on a mini bus and went in the caves which were very nice but the best bit of all was seeing the apes, always wanted to see them. When we went back down we went shopping in a very beautiful area. Top tip, If... More

We walked up through the main street in Gibraltar and then on another 10mins until we reached the Cable Car station. We went early in the morning and there was no queue, so we were at the top within 20mins. The view at the top is fantastic. There were a few monkeys/apes? at the top, who kept their distance, possibly... More
