What You Can Expect

Gibraltar Sightseeing Day Trip from Malaga

See the semi-wild troop of macaque monkeys in Gibraltar!

Depart Malaga by air-conditioned coach and follow the coast to Gibraltar, the British territory that occupies a promontory jutting into the Mediterranean Sea.

Famous for its soaring limestone ridge known as the Rock of Gibraltar, this chunk of British territory is also known for its duty-free shopping and British-style sights, including traditional pubs and trademark red telephone boxes.

After a roughly 2-hour journey, arrive and enjoy a sightseeing tour of Gibraltar’s main attractions. Snap photos of the port, glimpse the walled inner city, and visit St Michael’s Cave, a network of natural caverns in the cliffs. Admire the stalactites and stalagmites and marvel at the largest cavern, an incredible grotto that’s used for concert and cultural events.



Next, drive up the 1,400-foot (425-meter) rock as your guide talks about the age-old legends that surround it. The ancient Romans and Greeks considered it one of the two Pillars of Hercules that stood at the edge of the world.



At the summit, gaze out over the Spanish coast and toward Morocco across the Strait of Gibraltar. Meet the rock’s famous residents: the semi-wild Barbary macaque monkeys known locally as ‘Barbary apes.’ Take snaps of these cheeky animals, but keep a watch on your belongings as they’ve been known to snatch and run!


Descend the rock and enjoy free time to explore the center independently. Perhaps have lunch (own expense) at a pub, meander around the pretty lanes, or shop till you drop along the long, central avenue of Main Street.

Most of the stores are made up of high-street British names, as well as international fashion chains and craft shops. Browse for British specialties such as clothing; snap up traditional Gibraltar glassware; and perhaps pick up duty-free favorites such as liquor, watches and fragrances.

Afterward, relax on the coach ride back to Malaga where your tour ends at the start point.

The pick-up was on time and smooth but be sure to be at the pick-up point on time because the coach cannot wait and they have to pick up people in other places too. Our trip leader Paco has an interesting sense of humor and can speak up to 5 languages. He is very knowledgable as well. He gave us a briefing about customs regulations and entry requirements, but some of trip goers did not have the correct documents and thus could not get into Gibraltar. I should mention that Gibraltar is not in the Schengen area and thus visitors cannot enter using a Schengen visa. I would advise checking with the official tourism website or the British government website to see if you need one. There is also a restriction on the amount of money you can spend and things you can buy and take out from Gibraltar as well. We had about 2 hours free time before hopping onto a minibus to tour the Rock of Gibraltar. The driver who was also the guide was very funny and friendly. You can pay in pounds sterling or Euros, although the official currency is Gibraltarian pounds. All in all, it is an interesting place to visit.

Amazing time.

The Bus Tour took too many pick-ups instead of telling people where they could be picked up instead at every hotel which took a lot time out of the Tour itself. However, the City Tour was capped by the tour to the Rock and all those caves, kudos to the City for spending money ensuring that the caves are safe to walk into. What can one say about the monkeys, simply unreal

perfect guide once in Gibraltar, when we got our local guide.
not so perfect on the way to and from... could have been a more clear itenary regarding times how long would the bus take, when would we expect to be back in the evening... everthing was sweeping and noting was clear.

The stickers we got bud-guide said also had a telephone number in case we needed help or got lost. problem is that the numder ws only local. E g I dont know the number for Spain. Should have been a international number

Otherwise everything was good.

The Rock is amazing! The guide, once we arrived in Gibraltar, drove us around The Rock in a mini bus. He was funny, friendly, and well educated on basically anything that we asked about... from the monkey's, WWII, defenses of, population...
We had plenty of time to explore, enjoy the day shopping and dining. We would go again!

fabulous tour. Make sure you book all parts - World War II caverns and cave. Our guide was very knowledge and made it very interesting. Enough time spent in each area. Also, make sure you grab a bite to eat during free time. Loved the quaint streets. Passports are required and the bus may have to wait when you exit to be inspected by customs.

Our guide was absolutely hilarious and full of so many fun facts about Gibraltar. The coach ride isn't so bad, about 2 hours each way, but it's comfortable with personal air conditioning available. Gibraltar itself is pretty small, would definitely recommend this tour with the sightseeing trip included so you get to see as much of the good stuff without having to wander around with a map by yourselves. We quite liked the free hour and we definitely recommend bringing pounds with you if you're from the UK to save money when buying food. The cave St Michael's Cave is pretty cool, even though it's not very big and you get through it in about 10 minutes, and there's lots of opportunities to take pictures of the macaques. Overall - well worth the price.
