What To Expect

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.

Drive sucked, tour good
Ronald_B, Dec 2021
Enjoyed the actual tour, but wished we could have gone to the top- your bus only goes 2/3 of the way. Description of sights was interesting. Coach bus getting to/from Gibraltar was a nightmare. 3/4 of passengers got on at one stop in Malaga. Rest got on during the drive. Tour description said pickup in towns along the highway. Bus wound through several towns to pickup people close to hotels. This added an hour to the drive there and back. One couple was obnoxious from the second they got on the bus. On the way back they were drunk, loud, disrespectful and didn’t wear their masks. The tour director tried to talk them down, but couldn’t. Twice many of the other passengers were yelling at the tour leader to kick them off the bus, which he didn’t for too long. Eventually he did kick them off, however they were on the bus 2 hours longer than they should have been. The whole bus was upset by these drunk, swearing, yelling people. The tour leader didn’t take charge soon enough.
Nice, but could be improved
Jolanta_S, Dec 2021
We were picked up in our town, which was nice. But so many people can not arrive on time, it started to get a bit annoying with time. The whole bus has to wait while someone is still buying coffee somewhere. The whole trip was a great experience and generally everything was fine, except the local guide on Rock Tour. I was in English speaking group and the guide said just few phrases in English, the rest was audio in French. Also Gibraltar can offer so much more. I'd rather stay a few hours longer and pay a bit more. The tour upstairs was very rushed. Tour guide Miguel was very nice and helpful.
Historical Gibraltar should be visited
Edward_M, Nov 2021
The best part of the visit was the local guide who drove us around town and explained a great deal about history and current life on Gibraltar. The fact that Britain owns it because it was a permanent gift from Spain was fascinating. The amount of land reclamation that has occurred was amazing. We walked up the hill after the tour didn't make it to the top, but got up to about 300 meters and the view was worth the uphill hike. The funniest part was how the road going in goes right across the runway for the one and only airstrip. Seeing St. Michael's Cave and the monkeys was a plus.
Gibraltar tour was great but the Tour Bus is awful
Syam_M, Nov 2021
This tour should have been completed in 5-6 hours but it took 12 hours because the tour bus kept picking people along the way by going out of the way to their hotels, whereas we that started at the initial departure point were not afforded that luxury. It should have taken only 1.5 hours each way; instead it took 3.5 hours. The tour guide that accompanied us in the bus herself was deriding this fact blaming the company and didn’t take any responsibility. They were not considerate to us that started early and we did not even get a chance to get coffee or breakfast because of that nonsense.Total waste of 6 hours in travels. The actual tour of Gibraltar lasted only 1.5 hours and the British tour guide was hilarious and informative. He made up for some of the negatives of going with this tour company. Suggest contacting Gibraltar tours directly to avoid this inconvenience. STAY AWAY FROM THIS TOUR BUS COMPANY.

A must do when in Spain
AnaMaria_T, Sep 2021
Very nice experience, so near to Malaga..in total a 12 h trip, having to pick up and leave a lot of tourists from many hotels on the way. The munkeys are the main attraction, they come very close but it's forbidden to touch and feed them. Bring £ if you don't have revolut.
Too much time on the Bus
Steven_N, Sep 2021
In total all you get is 3.5 hours in Gibraltar from an 11 hour day! far too many hotel stops, my advise would be have one bus for Malaga, one for Torremolinos, one for Fuengirola and one for Marbella
Great time!
Christina_R, Sep 2021
Great experience! Great tour guides! We had so much fun exploring Gibraltar. Just note that you will be on the bus for a while with all the bus stops to and from, worth it, but wanted to note that it is a large portion of your day.

Gibraltar Day Trip
Bill_H, Mar 2020
The trip was great. Gibraltar exceeded expectations and our tour guides were wonderful. The vistas of the African mountains, the cave, harbor and of course the monkeys were super. I would like to have had more free time after the small bus tour.
