Bus picked me up at Hotel within a few minutes of stated time. Coach very comfortable. Quite a long delay at the border as the Spanish continue to make an issue, but still had a full 4 hours in Gibraltar. Guide friendly and informative. Excellent value for a day trip.
A BRILLIANT DAY OUT . coach very comfy nice driving. lots of shops what more could you ask for GO THE VIATOR WAY ITS THE BEST
Do the entire tour it is worth it to see the caves and the monkeys/apes I upgraded onsite and was glad I did After the full tour there is enough time to shop Do not miss the glass blowing factory in the shopping area
First class! Very good value when booked from the United Kingdom!
Truly amazing, and breathtaking. Can't wait to go back there!
Good quality coach, friendly, knowledgable and multi-lingual guide, good value trip. Thats all you need to know really !
very good trip....... had a great day ......... excellent value for money will be booking with viator again
shopping trip to Gibraltar went without a hitch. Coach arrived at our hotel at time arranged.
Good Service from Viator. Will definitely use you again
The trip was reasonably price per person, 24hr confirmation was good customer service and pick for the coach wasnt that far to connect with. The pickup points takes up quite abit of time but otherwise its nice to see different places along the route.
Coach was OK. We were glad to be last picked up. The guide was friendly and shared information well. Could have done with longer in Gibraltar.
The tour was certainly worthwhile doing. Our guide was extremely informative and helpful. The only down side to the whole day was the fact that the coach had 17 pick up stops along the way and we were number 2. It would have been much easier to collect people from a cluster of hotels by mini bus and bring them to the main coach. This would have saved a lot of time and we would have had more time to spend and enjoy Gibraltar.
We were picked up right on time from our hotel and it was a problem free trip. Only negative was the number of times we had to stop and collect people on the way, which meant the trip to Gib rook nearly 3 hours. Having said that our courier was great, and we felt very safe in Pedro's hands. We had 5 hours in Gib so it was a worthwhile trip, and particularly pleasing to think we had booked it from the UK!!
after few phone calls to ensure pick up .things were fine....enjoyed the trip ..pity it was not a little bit longer...only there for four hours ,would go again ...
Bus did not arrive on day of planned tour.Waited one hour.Had to go back to hotel to contact tour operator who said they had gone to different pickup point!! Thankfully we could go the next day but really we had wasted at least 2 hours of a day and had to rearrange other plans.Not good enough no real apology.When we eventually did tour it was fine but you really need to do rock tour.Overall trip good but rather expensive for what you got.
The tour served its purpose in that it took us to Gibralta and back. However the coach was 30 minutes late and we spent 2 hours each way picking up and dropping off at hotels in the resort which more than doubled the travel time.
The pros - Gibraltar is lovely, excellent for duty free and worth a visit.
The cons - The bus took 3 1/2 hours to get there from Torremolinos by the time we had made all the pick up stops, so we got to Gibraltar at midday and we had to be back on the coach at 4pm. Booking it as the shopping tour, you basically just get the bus fare included and that's it. We were dropped at the bus station but not given any map or directions of where to walk to the town, which is a 10 minute walk each way to the square. We just about had time to do the cable car ride up to the rock, lunch and a quick look around the shops, which actually closed at 3pm on a Saturday.
Summary: Whilst we had an enjoyable afternoon, it was a rush in the 4 hours we had there. More information would have been appreciated.
Tips: Do not go on a Saturday as the shops close at 3pm. Get a map from the tourist office for free rather than paying £1 out of the machines. If you are not an independent type of traveller, book this trip with the rock tour etc included. Finally if you want more than 4 hours in Gibraltar, consider other options.
Guide not as pleasant as last year told pickup was 8 45am guide came and got us from breakfast at 8 35am told us that we were late and pickup was up the road we had only been on the coach 5minutes and stopped for a toilet break in the dirtiest garage/cafe with toilets so disgusting you couldn't use
Too much time wasted on the way to Gibraltar, including a 25minute stop at a motorway service station, which left only 3.5 hrs. in Gibraltar
I understand that their was a problem with the coach. Hotel was phoned for me to go to another pick-up point quater mile away across a busy road, not at hotel as planed. Eventually arrived 40 minutes late. We stopped for comfort break after driving 15 minutes.
The tour is too short! You arrive at 11:00 and have to leave at 3:00. Some people were there for sightseeing, and there is no point in leaving that early, considering the early start. Heading back at 5:00 would have made more sense. Four hours isn't even enough time for the serious shopper. I wouldn't do it again, simply because there isn't enough time to do what you went there to do, whether it was sightseeing or shopping.
The bus was three quarters of an hour late picking us up, which meant that we did not have long enough in Gibraltar. We then spent from 10am to 10:45 waiting to enter Gibraltar via customs.
