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!

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.

We did this tour on the last day of a 12 day trip, and it was definitely one of the most fun, easy, days. We were staying in the Marbella area, so we were the last on the bus and the first off, which made for a nice trip. The guide provided interesting information along the way. Once we got to Gilbralter it was an easy custom stops (on the bus, show passports), and then we had free time to explore until it was time for our trip up the mountain. Our mini-bus driver was informative, enthusiastic, and funny, and we enjoyed the stops for photos.... incredible to look across the strait and see Africa! The caves were a bit "disco", and lots of steps for some of our group (up and down and back up), but still interesting. We were delighted with seeing the "apes" and were especially charmed by seeing one family with a baby ape. We had just enough time to grab lunch when we returned to town, and then a different route home along the seaside towns was a nice end to the trip.

A lovely day out. The guide on the coach was multi-lingual and changed so fast from one language to the next it was hard to tune in at the right moments for the English bits. Getting through the border both going and returning can take some time - on the return leg, you have to get off the coach, walk through customs and board the coach again. Whilst on Gibraltar do take the mini bus tour round rock. The mosque on the other side is quite breathtaking and of course you must see the monkeys. They're very cheeky, so keep your bag shut. We visited the caves - breathtaking and something not to be missed. Many people go for the shopping, but I didn't find any unusual or unique shops - they were, in the main, branches of most high street chains. If you get the chance to wander around and take some of the little lanes off the beaten track you find that it's quite worn and tatty - needing a bit of tlc investment - scaffolding everywhere, yet few workmen - for all that though, there's a quaintness and charm about the place which is rather comforting. I wouldn't bother going to Gib for the shopping experience, but definitely make sure you do the sight seeing. My only critisism is the amount of time it takes to complete all the pick-ups. I'd rather pay a bit more money for fewer people and longer on the trip itself.
