Superb views, good walking for seroius ramblers as well as those looking for a few miles 'stroll' interspersed with various attractions and places for a picnic.

The lack of housing and traffic is wonderful, but don't expect to see a lot of the nature reserve from the road.

Absolutely brilliant time on the Rock. One bit of advice is if you wear a hat to take it off. We had one monkey who decided to nab a wooly hat and we had a great laugh watching him put it on for 20 minutes (she did get it back in the end). They weren't as violent as I've seen... More

If you visit GIB you need to go into the Upper Rock, walk up via the steps, or the cable car. Or pick up a Taxi Tour.

There are a few interesting buildings to visit but the caves and the Tunnels can be very enjoyable as well as the splendid views over the bay. Best visited by car, there is a ticket to pay and...

The minibus tour up around the Rock is very good and the driver gives a really good info about the different places and their history. The apes are really nice to look at, but as he said "Don't touch"

It was an amazing view, once at the top of the rock, but I would definitely recommend taking the cable cart to the top. 'we' decided to try and walk to the top, this was a bad choice! we ended up taking the cable cart and walking down, hard work because of the heat, but we were able to see... More
