This amazing rock formation in an extremely rich historic location is worth a visit and even a trip form the Costa del sol. For its magnificent views, for some unique vegetation, for the fun watching monkeys play and for walking around and explore the tunnels, caves, castle, suspension bridge and so much more. So why not giving it 5 stars.... More

Walked through the nature reserve on the way down from the Rock - pleasant walk - in places there has been some new paths & steps put in as well as new barriers to avoid falling off the edge !! Could be helped with more signage & maps as there are numerous paths/routes which can be misleading

The Upper Rock Nature Reserve is a story of two halves - firstly the proliferation of mini buses ferrying groups of tourists, many from the cruise liners that 'short stop' in the harbour, for brief visits to the various places of interest and - secondly, those intrepid souls on foot, or in a chartered taxi, who seem to have a...

We are very lucky to be able visit Gibraltar a bit off season avoiding crowds. We walked the whole area and visit all attractions on the way. Beautiful scenery and views, did see some wildlife. We took an unused road to walk to the Siege tunnels which was completely empty. Overall I recommend to everyone who is visiting Gibraltar.

Only a fool or the physically infirm would miss this glorious treasure, if you visit Gibraltar you must make the time to get up to the top. It costs £12.50 for and adult return trip in the cable car, alternatively you could pay for a guided tour in a bus, or the adventurous traveller could catch a bus as far... More

This is whty you go to Gib but it is tired, the paths are very uneaven, there is a lot of litter, the signage is faded. This has been a fantastic area but it has been allowed to crumble. We tourists on Gib are literally a captive audience so clean it up !

Stunning views from the top of the Rock! Look across the bay towards Spain, or over the Straits towards Morocco; whichever way you look it's brilliant!

We reached the Upper Rock Nature Reserve by using the cable car located close to the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens. The 10GBP Nature Reserve ticket allows entry to all of the sights in the Reserve - an area that has been de-militarized on the mountain top known as the Rock and is cared for by this organization. The WWII Tunnels, run... More

Beautifull view on top - view from neighbouring hills even better. No cars allowed on top any more except for taxi drivers who make you jump for your life when walking up. Very expensive entrance fee (we paid over 40 pounds to see a cave!). Well organized money trap with large potential. Lovely cable car drive down though.

Thank KarolaRS
