If one is in Gibraltar this is the must see. The top of the rock has a fee-free large observation deck with a gift shop and cafeteria. The signature friendly apes are everywhere. One can walk or cable car to the top; one can also drive along a precarious route three-quarters of the way to the top. The walk up... More

Bitterly disappointed with The Rock. Unloved gem of Gibraltar that needs some TLC. The apes are certainly the highlight. I was disgusted to see the amount of rubbish mainly drink bottles dumped on the verges. Bottles and cans had also been dumped at the end of the tunnels. The Gibraltar Government should be ashamed at not putting in the investment... More

Stunning views, nice observation building and platform and the apes are everywhere. Can not go to Gibraltar without a trip to the top.

Me and my partner booked this trip from Torremolinos, however we paid just for transport to Gibraltar. The place is so small and everything is signposted so finding your way here is fairly easy. We got the cable car to the top and were in awe both of the sights and the monkeys. Be prepared to walk LOTS, we took... More

My wife always wanted to see Gibraltar, like Malta it was a second home for me having served 8 years in the R.N when I was younger and neither of us were disappointed, it was a fantastic day out! We took the cable car up which my wife was quite nervous about at first with the intention of taking the... More

Slighty misty day for our visit but was well worth it. The view, when the mist cleared was great, the updrafts of wind when you were near the cliff side was a welcome relief to the heat. Seeing the apes was a wonderful experience...they can grab your bag if it's plastic or paper as they associate these with good but... More

We arrived about 11:00 to be met with a huge queue for the cable car! After around 2 hours we finally made it to the cable car. Although the weather was fairly poor, the view from the Rock was still good and the monkeys and their interaction with fellow tourists created much amusement for us; definitely a highlight! 🐵

This place is awesome with so much packed into a small location. All over Gibraltar there are attractions. From the moment you cross the runway, there are sights to behold and things to do. Food is varied and good value. There are a few interesting connections to the UK and the history of the rock is phenomenal. The cable car... More

The Rock is one of the most impressive sights I have seen. Pulling into Gibraltar on our coach your view is one of pure awe. You can approach via a cable car or take one of the mini bus tours from the town centre. We took the mini bus and it was brilliant and our driver was very knowledgeable. With... More
