Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Gibraltar Sightseeing Day Trip from Costa del Sol. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We basically had three guides and each one knew his subject very well and presented it well. Paco, our Tour Bus guide dealt with the historical part of Spain, the Gibraltar Van Guide talked about the history of Gibraltar and Stephen, the Tunnel Guide, dealt with the construction of the 52 kilometers of tunnels. Each one had humorous stories to make things interesting, but the Tunnel Guide actually worked in the tunnels of Gibraltar in modern times. The British Army built the tunnels at Gibraltar while the RAF built the runway. Our Guide, being a British Army retiree, had many tall tales about the RAF at Gibraltar Should you take the tour, make sure you ask the Guide how the 5,000 military intermingled with the 300 females in Gibraltar. This tour is strongly recommended.
the guide was excellent at getting around the long car and bus lineups and customs. the guide was also conscientious of our mobility issues and was always making sure we didn't get lost etc.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour, I thought there would be long delays at the border but there was not. The coach was prompt and driver informative. when in Gibraltar we got a minibus which took us to the top of the rock the minibus driver/guide was fantastic so informative about history etc of th eeeWrock.StMichaels caves was marvellous as were the monkies. Well worth the money I will go again.
Being in Marbella we were the last to get picked up and the first to be dropped off- which was great for us. Once in Gibralter we had a great tour guide to drive us around the rock, funny and entertaining.
The monekys were out in force. Watch out they do bite and they do steal food if you have any!!
All in all this was a well organised excellent tour.
This was a really lovely trip.Great scenery,excellant guides. Saint Michals cave is fasinating and the Monkeys are really cheeky,jumping into the bus window or onto a car roof,hang onto yours sunnies n cameras or they will be off with them. Once again a long drive,but well worth it.
It was both beautiful and a lot of fun. St. Michaels cave was fascinating and much more than I imagined. We were well prepared for the "monkeys" and enjoyed the beautiful scenery from the ferry.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The trip up the rock was a bit hairy but the minibus driver was just like Basil Fawlty and kept us entertained throughout. The caves were magnificent and the views over the Gibraltar Straits spectacular.
I am glad I persuaded my five friends to take the trip.
Really liked the tunnels, it was especially good, as the guide was outstanding. He had previously been in the army and worked there in 1981 or 2 and was British and made the tour really come alive. The cave was interesting and again a little more information would have been good.
A wonderful day In Gibratar. Free time to wander through the streets and then a great tour around Gibratar with a friendly knowledgeable guide.
Enjoyed trip very much. Guide on mini bus was very well informed and gave us lots of interesting facts. Would recommend trip to anyone.
The rep on the coach from Fuengirola to Gibralter was very good, keeping us informed in 4(!) different languages! The highlight was the minibus tour guide going up Gibralter rock, who was very informative, funny and entertaining.
Gibralter is a beautiful little place and I would recommend the tour to everyone; if you've never been, you have to do it.
The caves are magnificent - in fact I proposed to my girlfriend in there! They are a truly stunning example of what nature can do.
The monkeys (barbary apes) are amazing - they aren't scared of people and come right up to you, even jumping on some people (especially if you have food!).
All in all, it was a wonderful trip and Julia Travel (who ran the tour we were on) were excellent.
Great trip, everything was on time, well organised, with a very funny and educational tour guide, would happily go again.
Excellent day trip. The guide (Janet) was excellent and the trip itself was well organised. Had enough time to do some duty free shopping and grab a bite to eat before the tour of the rock. The bus driver on the Rock tour was very informative and this made the tour very enjoyable. If you want a good day out book this tour.
Our guide in Gibraltar was fantastic and funny. The visit to the rock was informative and extremely fun! I highly recommend it.
