What You Can Expect

Gibraltar Sightseeing Day Trip from Costa del Sol


While on the rock you will visit the Saint Michael caves, a dramatic natural grotto sometimes used as a venue for concerts and classical music performances.

There will also be time to meet the locals - the semi wild troop of Barbary "Apes" (they are actually Barbary macaque monkeys). It is said the British will not leave Gibraltar until the apes have left. Hang on to your belongings though, they are cheeky little monkeys!

Descending from the Rock, you have free time for shopping in the main street, where everything is sold from the latest designer fashions to what is probably the best known 100 percent cotton underwear in the world!

Great! My husband and I went to the wrong hotel for the pick-up, totally Our falt, and they still found us! We went all the way into town too! Annabell was our guide on the Big bus. She spoke several languages, was informative and personable. Once @ our location we split up based on native languages. Bart, our driver/guide was informative, engaging and amusing. The sights were beautiful, monkeys adorable and history interesting. We didn't see the tunnels but St. Michael's cave was beautiful. lots of shopping and dining options walking the streets in Gibralter.

I was initially reluctant to book this tour, as Viator uses a local tour company and it received negative reviews on TripAdvisor. But I was pleasantly surprised. This day excursion was excellent. We were picked up and dropped off at our beach hotel in Torremolinos which was also a pleasant surprise as the local tour website says the pick-up/drop-off point is another hotel in Torremolinos. Our tour guide Pedro was informative and very engaging all day long. He spoke several languages, including English, and always explained things well. The trip was well worthwhile and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Costa del Sol and looking for an interesting and fun day excursion. Kudos to Viator and the local tour company for making this experience a very pleasant one.

My husband and I had a wonderful time. The bus driver who took us up the rock was amazing. Not only was he funny and quirky but knowledgeable and an excellent driver. Annabelle was our bus tour guide and helped us find places to eat and things to do during our free time. She was excellent!

If you ever wanted to do Gibraltar, but you've only got one day, this is the tour for you. It seems to pack in everything the Rock has to offer. You get a tour of Gibraltar with stops for the caves the apes and an optional tour of the tunnels. (the tunnels are well worth the additional charge). There's also the opportunity for some duty free shopping.
I can cross Gib off my bucket list now.

Very enjoyable trip to see the rock and the monkeys! Make sure to add on the tour for the tunnels. Very interesting.
