What You Can Expect

Gibraltar Sightseeing Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Gibraltar

Join up with your guide at one of the central meeting points on the Costa del Sol, and settle inside your air-conditioned coach. Then, journey along the coast to the British territory of Gibraltar, set on a promontory that juts into the Mediterranean Sea.

Best known for its towering limestone ridge known as the Rock of Gibraltar, this chunk of British territory is also famous for its duty-free shopping and British institutions, including its British-style pubs, trademark red telephone boxes and policemen dressed in British uniforms!

On arrival, take a panoramic coach tour and visit Europa Point, Gibraltar’s southernmost point. View the lighthouse that stands at the gateway between the Mediterranean and Atlantic, and absorb the spectacular views over the Strait of Gibraltar toward North Africa.

Next, hop onto a minibus for a guided tour of the iconic Rock. On your way up, stop to visit beautiful St Michael Cave, a network of natural limestone caverns hollowed into the cliff. Marvel at the stalactites and stalagmites as you learn how the cave has been used through the centuries, and behold the largest cave, a natural grotto regularly used as a venue for concerts and other events.

Then, head up the rock to meet its famous residents: the semi-wild Barbary macaque monkeys, known locally as 'Barbary apes.' Hear the story of how the British will never leave Gibraltar until the apes depart, and take snaps of these cheeky animals, taking care to watch your belongings!

Later, head back down the rock, and enjoy free time to explore independently. Perhaps enjoy a meal (own expense), stroll around the pretty lanes, or head for Main Street, the partly pedestrianized, long shopping avenue. Browse the department stores, international fashion chains and handicrafts shops, and maybe snap up duty-free favorites such as liquor, watches, fragrances and other great-value goodies.

When the time comes, return to your coach and ride back to the Costa del Sol where your tour ends at the start point.

A must do experience. Tour guide was very knowledgeable.

This was fantastic - this is the perfect tour if you walk briskly so that you can take in everything. If you move slow you will not be able to see ALL of Main St. GIB

The tour was great. Hotel pick up/drop off, and a lovely day in Gibraltar. Comfortable transport, knowledgeable guide, and good mix between guided tours and personal free time. We have more trips booked through Viator in Peru and South East Asia and really looking forward to them.

We enjoyed the tour, so easy to access the highlights of Gibraltar on a day trip. Really loved the caves. Would liked to have seen more of the port area and beaches? But good value for a day out.
