Well organized. Amazing vew of Africa. Friendly monkeys. Interesting.
Visite formidable, à couper le souffle.
Nous avons fait le trajet Séville=Gibraltar avec la compagnie AndalSur, qui offre des services de très grande qualité. Notre chauffeur, Mr.Pepe, a été particulièrement attentif et aimable et nous a fournir beaucoup d'explications historiques et d'informations touristiques. Un seul bémol: les firmes qui effectuent les excursions en minibus à Gibraltar même nous ont infligé 35 minutes d'attente (pour des querelles commerciales). Et 35 minutes sur 2 heures c'est énorme. Il est impératif que ça s'arrange à l'avenir, car le prix de l'excursion est élevé et surtout car il y a tellement des choses à voir. Même avec ces désagréments, c'était une excursion inoubliable.
We did not know what to expect with this tour so we had a really interesting and enlightening day. Our tour guide Grace picked us up on time with the bus driver. Upon our arrival we were met by another Tour Guide/Bus Driver who took us all around the Island. He was amazing and full of information and history. Drove us through some of the cave/tunnels explaining the history - also to the Top where all the monkeys were and a wonderful cave full of stalegmites - awesome - like nothing we had ever seen before. The monkeys were mischievous and very entertaining. Had some time to walk around and we really felt like we were in the UK when we walked down the "High Street" as there are lots of UK chains stores here. A shoppers paradise with lots of duty free. The airport is amazing too as the runaway goes right over a road that you go across to get off the island through the border patrol. Obviously this road is closed off whilst the planes take off and land - now that's different! Beware that they check your shopping when you come back over the border. A reminder to take your passport to go through the border! The Rock is amazing - worth a visit!!
This was a fantastic trip with unique sights and history. Our only recommendation would be that Viator update their program description to include : Passports are required for the excursion.
Everything about this tour was quite acceptable. The tour guide was a pleasant and knowledgeable woman and the bus drive had a degree in zoology and he explained a lot about the monkeys who live on the rock. The trip was timely both coming and going which can be important if other connections need to be made. All in all it was a pleasurable experience. My only disappointment was that the tour doesn't go very high up the mountain at all and we didn't get to get out and walk on the mountain as I had envisioned. The top of the rock is off limits though as it is military operation. Over all, we were quite satisfied with this tour and would recommend it.
Enjoyable day and it was a great experience to go there. There isn't a lot to do there once you have been to St Michaels cave and a walk inside the rock itself. The wander along the High Street that looked like it was picked up from an English village and dropped on the end of Spain was novel but not being much of a window shopper this went an hour too long for me. Others would probably like this little piece of England, except maybe the village that woke up to find its High Street missing.
very good but needs to be at least an hour longer in Gibraltar as we only had an hour in the city centre to eat and there was no time to look around/shop. also we could have spent longer on the rock-- it was so awesome there! our guide (the one who drove the bus) was very good and entertaining; however he skipped the ape's den which was kind of a bummer since that is major area to go there (though we did see the monkey's near the cave area)
WE enjoyed ourselves on this tour, Charlie our tour guide was hilarious and very proud of his "Rock". Very informative.
Nice bus and tour guide. Lovely drive to destination. Trip too short and rushed at sights. Shorten shopping in Gibralter and extend tour. Charges for tour are too high.
I was kind of disappointed. We were driven around and visited the cave and the monkeys in an hour and a half and later dumped at the beginning of the Main Street with a map to walk around for two hours. It felt more like a shopping tour and let's throw in some caves and monkey's for the heck of it instead of giving a proper overview of Gibraltar. We didn't even het to go on the cable car to go on top of the rock!
It was very poorly planned and executed by the local provider. Most of this time was spent on the bus, even in Gibraltar, with very short photo ops off the bus.
- 30 minutes of time on our own was not sufficient for both lunch and exploring/shopping;
- too little time at sights for pictures (the south end by the mosque was only added to the tour as one of the participants requested it, and even then I believe a measly 10 minutes was allotted);
- way too much time in the cave, which was not in the description, and of no interest to me;
- our guide had difficulty communicating with us. as a result, three participants arrived 30 minutes late and caused the rest of the group to rushed back for nothing;
- poor coordination of pick-up time prior to the event;
- the description states the tour lasts from 8-8, which was completely different than the 8-6 schedule outlined by the guide.
Beautiful place, but very poorly organized and not enjoyable. To be avoided.
