We visited earlier this month and we asked for prices for concessions and there was none, a little bit disapointing at £10.50 each return when it only takes around 6 minutes plus the fact that we spent about £30 in the cafe at the top. As this is a very popular attraction you would think the prices could be lower.... More

Strange complaints some people have had about the cable car. The only negative I could imagine is the cost is somewhat high although for about GBP20 it includes the one way trip up and entrances to the nature park and the various attractions there which are an integral part of the experience. And it does go to the top of... More

I have visited the Rock many times but never made it up to the top but I had been watching a documentary on Channel 4 or 5 which inspire me to give it a go on this visit. I must say it is worth the trip for the veiwa and the arrogant yet highly entertaining monkey. Bit pricey at £21... More

Visitors to Gibraltar with little time on their hands should not think twice about taking the 5 minute cable car ride to the top of the Rock. The views from above are stunning with the Medittaranean Sea on one side and the Atlantic on the other .At night with the many lights surrounding the Bay of Gibraltar, it is a... More

Great views in the cable car travelling up the Rock. The attendants are very nice too (especially to someone like me who hates heights!)

I was very wary of this as I don't particularly like heights but put your fear to one side and it's well worth the ride. If you've watched the tv programme you will know how safety conscious the team are. The views are spectacular and the viewing platforms at the top are amazing. I took a taxi up last time... More

Went up the rock on our first day unfortunately the low cloud spoilt our views. Decided to go up few days later. My son loved the monkies and the views are spectacular. For anyone visiting Gib go and visit The Rock, you will not be disappointed

My husband and I went up the cable car and as we docked we heard a thump on the roof. We could see the Macaque monkey welcoming committee hoping to get some goodies off the tourists. I stepped outside and felt a large "thump" on my back... I did not bring any plastic bags of food as advised, but had... More
