Worth the ride up for the views

The cable car ride itself is pretty short and the views are better at the top than during the journey itself. In May when we were there it only goes up and down top to bottom... read more

Yes, if you're in Gibraltar take the cable car up to the top, well worth it for the views alone. My tip is to take a one way ride to the top, see the views, the apes then walk to St Michael's cave which is beautiful, huge and well worth a visit, then walk down the rock via the the... More

During the early May Bank Holiday, took the cable car to the top of the rock, where we had a cup of coffee and then walked back down. The staff were very helpful and provided us with useful information.

A short ride to the top, I got the return trip but wth hindsight I should have got a single and walked down. Fantastic views from the top so well worth it.

What's there to like about a cable car? Right, the views. Well in order to see spectacular views you'll need clear windows right? Forget it, don't bother to get your camera out, cause you'll be disappointed. The windows are filthy, the employees are uninterested, like it's a punishment to be there for them.

I'm afraid I have to say the spectacular view of the rock got off to a poor start - having arrived early 9.30 am to go up in the cable car there was no one in the queue - having been harangued outside by the 'tour guides " to go up on a tour bus rather than cable car (... More

The cable car ride itself is pretty short and the views are better at the top than during the journey itself. In May when we were there it only goes up and down top to bottom, there is no stop in the middle. At the top a family of apes met us, with the cutest baby climbing around. Whilst walking... More

As regular visitors to Gibraltar over the years we like to take the cable car to the 'Top of the Rock' at least once during each stay. It is definitely one of Gibraltar's best attractions. Anyone used to taking the cable car in one of the Alpine resorts will find the ride a familiar one. This is not really surprising.... More

Easy and quick way up the mountain. It is quite scenic. The views at the top are amazing! You can see as far as Morroco. There is a souvenir shop, clean bathrooms and a snack place at the top. There are sites in and around the drop off point.
