Overview

Dive into the duty-free shopping of Gibraltar on this full-day tour from the Costa del Sol. Take a coach trip to the British territory, and enjoy roughly four hours of free time to enjoy its plethora of department stores, global fashion brands and craft emporiums. Stroll along the long shopping avenue of Main Street to buy fashions, electronics and more; and snap up duty-free favorites such as liquors, watches and fragrances. Relax at the British-style pubs and restaurants, and then return to Spain armed with your goodies and bargains.
  • Shopping tour to Gibraltar from the Costa del Sol
  • Scenic drive along the Mediterranean coast
  • Shop for designer goods and local crafts
  • Browse the duty-free jewelry, watches and spirits
  • Pick up the perfect souvenirs!
Leave the Marbella, Estepona or Torremolinos areas by air-conditioned coach and journey along the coastal roads of the Costa del Sol to the British territory of Gibraltar.


Set on a promontory and famous for its towering, limestone ridge known as the Rock of Gibraltar, this little chunk of Britain is well known as shoppers’ paradise and duty-free retail haven.


As you travel, get an introduction to Gibraltar’s shopping attractions from your guide, and ask any questions you have about making the most of its retail scene.

On arrival, hop off your coach and enjoy around four to five hours of free time to hit the shops as you wish. Perhaps make tracks first for Main Street, Gibraltar’s mostly pedestrianized, major shopping avenue. It’s home to most of the largest shops, from well-known British department stores to international fashion chains, souvenir emporiums and more.

Dive in to browse for everything from electronics, fragrances and fashions to leatherware, and what is probably the world’s best-known 100% cotton underwear! And don’t miss the all-time duty-free favorites of jewelry, watches, fragrances, spirits and tobacco.
Look out, too, for Gibraltar’s souvenir and crafts shops, perhaps snapping up mementos of your day and traditional artisanal wares such as hand-blown crystal.


Take breaks from your shopping at any of the welcoming restaurants and British-style pubs, or just people-watch from a tea or coffee shop — your time is your own.


When the time comes, reconvene with your guide and ride back into Spain, where your trip ends at the start point.

This was a great trip, the coach was prompt, the driver and guide Barry great and very helpful. They made the trip very enjoyable
and even dropped us off nearer our hotel than where we had got on. Great service

Bus did not arrive on day of planned tour.Waited one hour.Had to go back to hotel to contact tour operator who said they had gone to different pickup point!! Thankfully we could go the next day but really we had wasted at least 2 hours of a day and had to rearrange other plans.Not good enough no real apology.When we eventually did tour it was fine but you really need to do rock tour.Overall trip good but rather expensive for what you got.

The tour served its purpose in that it took us to Gibralta and back. However the coach was 30 minutes late and we spent 2 hours each way picking up and dropping off at hotels in the resort which more than doubled the travel time.

Bus picked me up at Hotel within a few minutes of stated time. Coach very comfortable. Quite a long delay at the border as the Spanish continue to make an issue, but still had a full 4 hours in Gibraltar. Guide friendly and informative. Excellent value for a day trip.

The pros - Gibraltar is lovely, excellent for duty free and worth a visit.
The cons - The bus took 3 1/2 hours to get there from Torremolinos by the time we had made all the pick up stops, so we got to Gibraltar at midday and we had to be back on the coach at 4pm. Booking it as the shopping tour, you basically just get the bus fare included and that's it. We were dropped at the bus station but not given any map or directions of where to walk to the town, which is a 10 minute walk each way to the square. We just about had time to do the cable car ride up to the rock, lunch and a quick look around the shops, which actually closed at 3pm on a Saturday.
Summary: Whilst we had an enjoyable afternoon, it was a rush in the 4 hours we had there. More information would have been appreciated.
Tips: Do not go on a Saturday as the shops close at 3pm. Get a map from the tourist office for free rather than paying £1 out of the machines. If you are not an independent type of traveller, book this trip with the rock tour etc included. Finally if you want more than 4 hours in Gibraltar, consider other options.

Too much time wasted on the way to Gibraltar, including a 25minute stop at a motorway service station, which left only 3.5 hrs. in Gibraltar
