We did the mini bus tour of the rock. It was perfect to see pillar of Hercules, the Apes and stunning views of Gibraltar. Having a guide helps with keeping the Apes at a comfortable distance.

Quick way to see major sights some distance from the centre. Good value over having a taxi. Fine views from the Upper Rock.

Was on an organised tour so jumped the queue, it looked like a long wait for others. Monkeys a bit scary, the view is interesting. Although I wont be rushing back.

15.50 EUR for a return fare, plus a long wait to buy the ticket? The official taxi tour was way better and it saves you a lot of walking.

Tarifa to Tangier Ferry (1 Reply)
Was planning to book the day trip through Blands Travel (£80 per person; lunch included) and was wondering whether it is worth it? Thanks.

I would say no it is not a good deal but when I went 10 years ago with Blands the cost was approx. £40.00. It was a great introduction and started my love affair with Morocco as I go fairly regularly now. There is a case of being dragged into carpet sellers, over-priced shops and herbalists by the Moroccan guide, time which could be otherwise be spent seeing more sights. Being more familiar with Morocco now I just get on a ferry and arrive ready for another tour although I do it all at a...More

I am staying in Gibraltar for nine days and wanted some advice on worthwhile things to do in Gibralrar. Would you recommend the boat trip to see the dolphins? What about the cable car to see the monkeys? I was also thinking about visiting Morocco but 80 pound each with Blands travel is a lot of money. Is it really worth it? What trips/activities are the best value for money? Thanks

Dolphins: I would certainly recommend a dolphin trip. They have a very high success rate for finding them, and also the dolphins invariably like to swim right up next to the boat, especially the bow wave at the front. There are two operators and competition between them is fierce! Staying in watergardens you will probably bump into (if not be stopped) by their sales people regularly if they think you are a visitor! Do tell them you are staying for a few days, so if for any reason they...More
