Keep hold of your bags folks ! What a fun experience . Lots of Monkeys. You can get there by a tour or if very fit you can walk. Would suggest taking plenty of water if walking and wearing sensible shoes. When you get to the apes den its well worth it. Apart from the Monkeys the views are to... More

No trip to Gibraltar would be complete without visiting the Apes Den. These apes are quite the sight to see. Watch out as you may find one land on your shoulders or head. A word of caution is the animals are wild and may bite if scared or annoyed. The tendency is to feed them but it is highly discouraged.... More

Looks like free public attaction. Possibility to play with monkeys but don't try to feed them - the penalty is too high. Don't leave your belongings unattended - apes could pick up them immediately.

The best place to see the apes and get up close to them whilst also feeling safe. This place does get very busy though, and you have to be careful of the taxi tours that pass through as the roads are very narrow.

I can't visit Gib without visiting the Apes Den - it's my favourite place! So great to be able to interact with the apes so closely.

The apes live quietly and seem to be at ease near human beings. You can take pictures and approach them but be careful because they can bite you, especially if they think you have food in your bag or pocket. Important: giving them any kind of food is forbidden because they're feeded by authorized personnel only!

Where else in Europe can you see wild apes? This is a fantastic place to visit. Despite being mid August we were pleasantly surprised by how few people/tour buses were up there, I'm not sure if this is because they monitor people going up? But it meant the apes were relaxed and there was plenty of room for all to... More

A fantastic experience to see these intelligent animals. Although I don't feel they warn you enough, DO NOT take valuables and food. They will take this, most apes watch as you pass minding their own business others however will grab your bag and take what they can. When this happens there's not a lot you can do! Overall well worth... More

Not much to say really, naughty apes running all over the place, if you like them you will love this place. Don't feed them or you can get fined, plenty of photo opportunities and photo bombs ha ha

We thought that it would be crawling with apes but there was just 2-3 at this location. Nothing to do about it though. We walked through the apes den from the Jews gate which was a really good walk. Don't walk here with kids or old folks. It's a long steep walk to the apes den and then you gotta... More
