We really enjoyed our day trip to Gibraltar. Bus was comfortable and completely full on our day of travel. We departed Torremolinos at 8.45am and were in the bus-park in Gibraltar at 11.15am. It took only two minutes to get across the border!
We had free time to shop in the main street and were asked to be back at the bus park for 1pm, to continue the tour of 'The Rock'. We decided that this was not sufficient time to explore the main town area, the shops, museums etc, therefore we did not return to the bus park at 1pm. We stayed in the town until the bus departed back to the Costa Del Sol at 3.45pm.
Even then, we could have spent a lot more time locally. We did not get to see everything.
Next time we are on Holiday on Costa Del Sol, we will do this trip again and hopefully see the whole rock. It has even whetted our appetite to visit Gibraltar for a holiday weekend.
Overall, the trip was really good, but if you want to do the whole Rock Tour, your time will be limited in the town itself. Ideally the bus should leave a little earlier and return a little later!

A great trip that was fun as well as informative. The only reason it doesn't rate a 5 star is the very long bus trip due to picking up other tour members from very remote hotels. Having several concentrated pick up locations would help this.
This was a very interesting trip. Many stops to pick up passengers along the way makes for a long day, however it does give you the opportunity to see other towns along the way. I would highly recommend taking the excursion around the island as it was extremely informative and interesting. You still have about 3 1/2 hours for shopping.
The stars are for value for money and the separate tour inside Gibraltar. The main tour guide spoke incomprehensible English there was only one Spanish tourist out of 50 so
she got a one-to-one in Spanish the rest of us gave up on the 'English' episodes. The tour was very interesting and took in al

fanatastic trip. st michaels cave is beautiful and the monkeys made the day.
Gibraltar is a beautiful place well worth the trip and money
Good trip. Picked up from hotel on time. Took quite a while to pick up all the guests from surrounding hotels but once we got to Gibraltar, we enjoyed a mini bus tour of the rock before visiting St Michaels cave and getting close and personal with the monkeys! Enjoyable overall.
A very good trip, the local guide in Gibraltar was knowledgeable, witty and helpful; the tour guide from Julia Tours was more of a manager than a guide but was also very helpful and supportive. The loss of a star is because the pickup time was not followed and the coach arrived at the pick-up point in Estepona 25 minutes after the time specified. Nevertheless we enjoyed the day.
Good tour, spent too much time on the bus picking up others for the tour, so plan on that if you take this tour but enjoyed the time in Gibraltar and had some free time to explore on your own.
It was a wonderful trip all in all. The day was perfect and the guide was pleasant. I wish we had more time while actually on the rock. I would have loved to have seen more of the amazing St. Michael's Cave with a guide. The scenic view was incredible. It was a very memorable experience.
Bus was a few minutes late to start. But the day was a good one in the end.
Great mini bus tour of Gibraltar.
A long day, but worthwhile and good value for money
Although our English speaking tour guide was very difficult to understand, our tour guide in Gibraltar was AMAZING. Navigated the curving roads up to the top of the Rock. The apes are adorable! and St. Michaels Cave very unique. Definitely worth the trip to see the Apes!
Very good tour with knowledgable guide. Only negative was that I felt we could have had a little more free time in the afternoon.

tour was really enjoyable,the guide who took us up the rock was very informative and funny with it. the only down side was the ammount of time it took to collect people from their hotels this made the journey twice as long
very interesting trip, local tour guide was brilliant, very funny and informative, not as british as i thought it would be, perhaps i was expecting too much.........
The coach was running a little late but not too bad. It was relatively comfortable and the guide was helpful. The trip itself was great apart from one or two rather annoying "fellow" travellers but all in all a good day out.
Tour was enjoyable but was marred by 2 couples on the tour that could not enter Gibraltar due to lack of passport. I feel tour should have had this in bold letters in their email or adds.
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.
