What You Can Expect
Then head to the famous Rock of Gibraltar, a tour highlight. The limestone rock stands about 1,400 feet high (425 meters) and has a long history – the ancient Romans and Greeks considered it one of the two Pillars of Hercules, which marked the edge of the ancient world.
From the top, take in views of the Iberian Peninsula and across the Mediterranean to Morocco, and meet the locals -- the semi-wild troop of macaque monkeys, popularly known as Barbary apes. Legend says that the British won’t leave Gibraltar until the monkeys have left. Hang on to your belongings -- these cheeky little monkeys have been known to snatch and run!
You’ll also have free time too have lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) and for shopping on Main Street, where prices are tax-free, the currency is the British pound and English brands like Marks & Spencer sell their wares. Hit the shops for British clothing and glassware, and pick up duty-free designs from international brands like Tommy Hilfiger and the Spanish brand Mango.
Don’t leave without saying hello to Gibraltar’s friendly dolphins, the world’s favorite marine mammals. Upgrade your day trip to include a dolphin-watching cruise to catch sight of the three types of dolphins who call these waters home: common, striped and bottle-nosed dolphins. If you don’t choose this option, you’ll have extended free time.
We really wanted to do this tour and were not disappointed. Interesting place. It seemed to take a long time to get there as the driver and the tour guide seemed lost in the morning route and we waited a few times. The tour Gibraltor itself was short, and it left a lot of shopping time which is not what we tour for. Still the place was friendly and the macaques were infrequent.
Nice new bus, informative guides. good value for money.
Only downside is the added time it takes to get there due to multiple pickup points when starting from Malaga
A long day, but more than worth it. I can't think of any other time we were on a road that crossed a runway. The inside of the rock is unbelievable. The apes seemed to ignore us, but were a kick to see and watch. This is a must day trip for anyone visiting southern Spain.
Bus on time. Good guide tour.
A long bus trip (approx 3 hours) but well worth it. Gibraltar was beautiful. Only wish we had been able to spend more time there. The tour guide was nice and informative.
Very interesting tour. The trip from Malaga to Gibraltar is kind long and not so excited, but when we go up in the mountain is just an amazing. It's very clouded the day I went, so I didn't get a chance to have a very clear view of Africa from there, but it's so worth!!!
Make sure to take the cable car up to the top. It's not included, but if you manage your time you can do make it!
The bus ride from Malaga to the Rock of Gibraltar didn't take long at all. Once there, I had some downtime to check out the city before I took the bus tour around the rock and visit to St. Michael's cave. Barbary macaques monkey were all around the cave and very friendly. After the tour around the rock and cave, again some downtime to visit and shop in the city. Day was good and very informative.
Our driver Phil was fabulous - navigated the Straits while providing a colorful history of the rock. Would highly recommend.
It was organized, informative, fun, no hassle trip and I´ll definitely do it again with your company. I loved that we could chat while the driver took away the worry of driving ourselves. Very cool.
This tour was amazing!
