What You Can Expect

Gibraltar Sightseeing Day Trip from Malaga

See the semi-wild troop of macaque monkeys in Gibraltar!

Depart Malaga by air-conditioned coach and follow the coast to Gibraltar, the British territory that occupies a promontory jutting into the Mediterranean Sea.

Famous for its soaring limestone ridge known as the Rock of Gibraltar, this chunk of British territory is also known for its duty-free shopping and British-style sights, including traditional pubs and trademark red telephone boxes.

After a roughly 2-hour journey, arrive and enjoy a sightseeing tour of Gibraltar’s main attractions. Snap photos of the port, glimpse the walled inner city, and visit St Michael’s Cave, a network of natural caverns in the cliffs. Admire the stalactites and stalagmites and marvel at the largest cavern, an incredible grotto that’s used for concert and cultural events.

Next, drive up the 1,400-foot (425-meter) rock as your guide talks about the age-old legends that surround it. The ancient Romans and Greeks considered it one of the two Pillars of Hercules that stood at the edge of the world.

At the summit, gaze out over the Spanish coast and toward Morocco across the Strait of Gibraltar. Meet the rock’s famous residents: the semi-wild Barbary macaque monkeys known locally as ‘Barbary apes.’ Take snaps of these cheeky animals, but keep a watch on your belongings as they’ve been known to snatch and run!

Descend the rock and enjoy free time to explore the center independently. Perhaps have lunch (own expense) at a pub, meander around the pretty lanes, or shop till you drop along the long, central avenue of Main Street.

Most of the stores are made up of high-street British names, as well as international fashion chains and craft shops. Browse for British specialities such as clothing; snap up traditional Gibraltar glassware; and perhaps pick up duty-free favorites such as liquor, watches and fragrances.

Afterward, relax on the coach ride back to Malaga where your tour ends at the start point.

Dolphin Watching Cruise Upgrade
Upgrade to include a dolphin watching cruise as a memorable extra on your visit to Gibraltar. After your sightseeing tour, board a comfortable boat and sail into the Mediterranean in search of these friendly mammals.

Watch for the three species that frequent the waters — bottlenose, common and striped dolphins — and soak up the sea breezes and stellar views from deck. Don’t forget your camera!

If you don't choose to take the dolphin watching trip, you will enjoy extended free time in the center of Gibraltar.

We had a fantastic experience on the tour. Even though the tour bus had to pick up other passengers it took us around other Costa del Sol towns which we hadn't visited before and that was a real treat. The bus driver, Pedro, was fantastic. When we got to Gibraltar we had a local tour guide to take us round the Rock and he was, well....he was like a professional comedian and had us in stitches. We visited the caves, saw the apes and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Sadly for us it was the windiest day Gibraltar had seen all year they told us - would love to go back at a different time of year and also it was a Saturday when many of the shops are closed due to the number of Jewish shop owners there. So next time we will visit during the week. All in all a great day and one we will always remember.

Great trip! Lovely coach ride with free wifi. Nice information en route to Gibraltar of the various towns. Had free time before and after the tour. Shopping in town was great. So many stores and cafes. Boarded mini coaches for the trip up the rock. Stopped and took pictures of the coastline of Africia. Monkeys were so cute but took mints out of on guys pocket. The St Michael's cave was breathtaking. Perfect trip. Annabell and Armando our driver were great! Would highly recommend this trip to everyone.

Absolutely excellent time and well worth taking this day trip. Got back into town around 3pm. The guide we had was very animated and very informative and really took the time to help everyone out. The only thing you don't do on this trip is go to the top of the rock, so if you want to do that, plan to do that while others are shopping. Definitely take the time to walk down the main street.

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.
