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.
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.
