Went by cable car to the top of the rock in July 2016. Better than awesome. The monkeys are a delight but dont have anything in your hands if you are outside because they will take it! Amazing experience with stunning views.

Despite some comments from other visitors, getting to upper rocks at Gibraltar is an awesome experience. The view over the north african coast is incredible. It is not cheap but this is anyway good value for money. A booking in advance is possible on their web site.

As I went there with my parents in law, with almost 70 y old, I had to go by car in order to visit the caves and all. I was told at the entrance that the access by car was only for residents. As it was already 6 pm I thought it because of the late hour. When I went... More

Awesome place to visit. Panoramic views of the Country and lots of apes around which are adorable. Don't take food up there though as they little bleeders will have it!

I went wife my wife and 9 & 11 year old children. Moorish castle was fabulous. We decided to walk the area and it was beautiful and peaceful. To stand next to gun batteries and see the views and try to take in what it must have been like during times of conflict is touching. To appreciate all those that... More

Visits is amazing. Buy at the store, before you go apple. One euro is worth it. Bite and give a monkey's hand gently they take. I do not recommend you bring along a of sweet drink Pepsi cola and so on. Monkeys like the sweetness and steal your handheld. No taxis and organized an expedition. You have your schedule and...

We went up the Rock on the Cable car and had planned to walk back down the rock via the new suspension bridge that has been built. The walk is quiet long back to the town centre so you need to reasonably fit. The new bridge is impressive and is accessible by going down the Royal Anglian way which starts... More

we walked this more by accident than anything else, yes the views are lovely but the signposts are not great, some of the paths and steps are really tricky to negotiate (not to mention the bridge) and it was a bit torturous

Part of the tour, we got off the mini-bus, admired the few apes that could be bothered to get up. Took some photos and got back on the mini-bus. The apes were quite disdainful!! Guess they have seen it all before!
