The City Under Siege is a lovely little gem of an exhibition with a small number of exhibits and but lots of additional audio information. Well worth a visit.

Some of the best views from the Rock ... Africa looks so close and the Med stretches out in front of you. Sunny, blue skies and sea on the day we visited. Stay well clear of the apes, they are not as cute as they...More

This is an opportunity to enjoy a full day of adventure as there is much to see and experience. The apes were a highlight and also the caves on both sides of the park.

Gibraltar was a pleasant surprise. We didn’t expect much more than a cruise stop over. We thought Gibraltar was charming, quaint and relaxing. We took a taxi tour at the pier with Eddie (a local) for about 30 pounds/person. His taxi accommodated 8 couples. He...More

Cost is about £10 and you can pay with either uk Stirling or euros. Check the exchange rate before travelling as you may get more Stirling than euros and you can pay with either throughout Gibraltar
