The whole experience was brilliant, but as we booked an ENGLISH speaking trip a lot of it was FRENCH/GERMAN/SPANISH. If we went again we would go SHOPPING only as you have the chance to do a lot more. we only got about 25 minutes for shopping. but having said that i would still recommend to friends.
Amazing to see the rock....tour guide was good
The monkeys were crazy. Not much to do except see them. But, have always wanted to see the Rock of Gibraltar. The place was packed with people.
Good way to enter Gibraltar. It was raining but we still had a great time. Shopping is over-rated. Make sure you purchase the "Rock Tour" because that is the way to see and learn about this facinating place. Loved the monkeys.
We really enjoyed this day trip from the Costa del Sol. The tour guide in Gibraltar was fantastic and funny and made the trip enjoyable. He showed us lots of interesting places and told us alot about the history of Gibraltar. He was very knowledgable. The trip itslef was just right and not too long. Thank you so much. A satisfied happy customer.
Super trip to Gibraltar. Tour guide Andy was great, his knowledge and witty humor made the trip. Monkeys was amazing.
Very good day in Gibraltar with pick-up and information excellent
Good trip. Great guide. We were a bit rushed while having to wait for a few people late for the bus so the start of the trip was delayed. Very organized. Gibralter just OK.
Entertaining trip, professionally done by our guide and driver who were helpful and friendly.
Gibraltar was enjoyable, with the tour up to the summit in our little coaches the highlight.
I thought the tour itself was worth doing, however, my complaint is that we were at the designated pickup time when we supposed to be there and waited about 20 minutes and the bus did not come. I tried called the local travel agent number and the emergency number but no answer. We then decided to walk back to the hotel and the girl at the desk called and they told her they were running late, so we ran back--I am not as young as I used to be--and the bus was waiting for us. Why is there not a phone attendant on the weekend (Sat)? This would have solved the problem. What is the emergency number for?
Also, I called one day (ahead of time) to verify my trip and they lady couldn't speak English so she just hung up on me! Wow!
I booked very last minute at the end of March 2011 and was picked up right at my hotel door in Fuengirola. We were broken down into smaller groups into minivans. Our British guide/driver was hilarious. I thought Gibraltar was well worth seeing for a day trip although it may have been a bit pricey as others say they booked through their hotels for less? But I was very satisfied with the trip.
An interesting excursion but the wartime tunnels should be included as part of the tour. "Shopping time" could be reduced for those of whom this is not the primary purpose of the trip.
The tour was as advertised. We would liked a longer tour on the rock itself, but enjoyed what we did get to see.
I was expecting something different -- ie more free time -- but there was enough time in Gibraltar since we came for sightseeing and fish and chips. The tour driver for the island tour, Paul, was wonderful, I highly recommend him.
It was very interesting and worth the trip especially if you add on the rock upper level tour. AGAIN had to have help speaking to the person to confirm our trips did not speak English well on the phone.
This was a pretty good trip. Other trips start too early, 6am etc but we were picked up at 10am which was fine. The coach could have collected us closer to our apartment, saving us a 8 taxi journey but we asked the guide on the return journey and he was happy to accomadate us which was nice. The trip was enjoyable and memorable and we have some great photos of Gibraltar. Our drivers both in Gibraltar and from the Costa Del Sol were excellent and the guide had a great sense of humour which all added to the trip. I would recommend this to friends and family and have already done so!
The trip was fun, but I would have liked to have had more time to eat, walk around and shop. It seemed a little rushed and I didn't get to enjoy as much time in the city as I would have preferred.
Tour was wonderful and informative however would have liked to have had more time to shop
