Loved everything about Gibraltar and my tour! The tour guides were amazing, the rock and St Michael's Cave are beautiful, and the monkeys are adorable! If you're in the area, you definitely need to check out Gibraltar!
We really liked this trip. It's such a historical place with neat little features to the tour such as St. Michael's cave, the Monkey sanctuary, and of course the rock itself and British naval base. We only wish we had an opportunity to explore some of the tunnels and a bit less free time on our own. The Gibraltar guide was excellent, and the other guide was pleasant. I was happy to be picked up only a few hundred meters from our hotel.
Well, it was a raining day but the tour guider did his very best to make our trip as pleasant as possible. We appreciated the effort, and we shall come back again.
The tour was wonderful. The tour guide was great and very friendly and informative. The driver was very skilled and one felt safe in their hands. Would recommend it to anyone!
This was a brilliant day excursion. Coach comfortable, courier and driver excellent. Mini tour of Gibraltar itself and shopping well organized also. We loved the whole experience.

We had a fabulous tour guide. He was what made the tour great! This was one of the highlights of our trip!
I loved the monkeys! That was the highlight of my trip. And the local guide was fantastic.
This was a brilliant day trip to Gibraltar. The apes are very cool and I could have spent all day watching them being cheeky with the tourists on the mountain. The duty free shopping in Gibraltar is the cheapest I have seen anywhere. The first sight of Gibraltar as you come around a corner is amazing and crossing the airport runway to get there is bizarre!
I loved it. You should definitely take the cable car to the top of the rock and see the apes. What a great view of Gibraltar and Spain. The guided taxi tour was awesome.
We were collected on time at our hotel, traveled in comfortable air-conditioned coach to Gibraltar, whereupon we transferred to smaller minibuses to commence our ascent to the top of the rock. The driver was very friendly and very informative - would recommend the experience to anybody.
This was absolutely brilliant! Great tour, well planned and very enjoyable.
I would recommend this bus trip to anyone who did not want to drive to Gibraltar. I'm glad I read the reviews before booking that described how much time would be spent picking up and dropping off at the resorts along the Costa del Sol. If you are early on the route plan to be on the bus a long time and without the convenience of a toilet!! What I wish I had been told ahead of time is that because of the complicated road system along the Costa del Sol, some of us would not be dropped off where we were picked up. It's a good thing we could use the prominent lighthouse as our "beacon" because we were dropped at a bus stop three or four blocks away from our resort. We could not see our resort but at least we knew the general directions we should be walking. We were not told about this until we were picked up and it was a casual 'Oh, by the way, on the way back we will be dropping you at the local bus stop". Bus stop, what bus stop??? If we had known about this ahead of time, we could have specifically looked for the route between the bus stop and our hotel.
I would still recommend this tour if you just want make a quick visit to Gibraltar because it does eliminate all the hassles with border crossings, customs and parking. The total time to tour in Gibraltar was only four hours, from about 12 to 4pm, two of them are spent on a minibus taking you on a tour of the rock and up to Michael's Cave and the Ape's Den and then two hours to spend as you like in Gibraltar. Unfortunately, our minibus tour took longer than planned so we had less than 1 1/2 hours of free time; just enough to find a particular restaurant and have a rather rushed meal.
We were the last group to be picked up in the modern air conditioned coach and as a result, our group of 3 was not able to sit together. Our tour guide Annabelle was professional and knowledgeable. She conducted her commentary in English, Spanish and German. Due to an incident between Spain and Gibraltar, the border crossing was unusually long and we needed to cross the border on foot. Soon we discovered that there were not enough seats in the English speaking minivan for our party of 3. Luckily, we were able to join another local English speaking tour guide from another tour company. The local tour guide, Martin was friendly, knowledgeable, positive and funny. My 11 year old son who sat next to the tour guide/driver appreciated his humor. We made several stops: European point, St. Michael's Cave, and a stop to view the monkeys. We had enough free time to tour the shopping district and eat lunch. We met up with our original tour group and walked across the border and went throught immigration quite easily. I would recommend this tour! It is nice to experience a bit of England so close to the Costa del Sol region of Spain.
