The only enjoyable part of this trip was at the Rock of Gibraltar with a local tour guide from Bland Tours. Our day started out at 8 am at a meeting point in Seville from which we went all over in the bus to pickup every one. We rode for about 2 hours and then stopped at a rest stop for about 1/2 hour. From here we went into town where we had 45 minutes to walk around a lot of tourist shops. THEN we went to a parking garage and waited for 1/2 hour for our tour guide. Once he arrived and took us around to The Rock, the caves, and to see the monkeys, It was very worthwhile and enjoyable however we only had 1/2 hour to explore the cave and see the monkeys.before we met up again to go back to the tourist shopping and back to Seville. So, you pay this expense for each member of your group for about 1.5 hours of good tourism and the rest of the time is wasted. I would look for a better tour should I do it again.
We did not know what to expect in this way, so we had a really exciting and instructive day. Our guide Paul chose us in time with the bus driver. Upon arrival we met another guide wizard who took us all over the island. It was amazing and full of information and history. We visited the cave of St. Michael and I got great pictures there. Gibraltar is amazing and worth a visit!
Excellent organisation and was picked up with no problem. The day was well organised and the guide looked after us making sure we knew where to meet. The only problem was the weather which couldn't be helped, but despite, we did see some monkeys! Torrential rain and gale force winds! Thoroughly recommend this trip.
In the middle of ten days in Seville, we wanted a day trip and the timing of this was ideal. Gibraltar is very touristy and it's a lot of time in the bus, but it was still fun for the family to see the monkeys and, yes, to have our ice cream stolen by them in spite of multiple warnings.
Amazing guide, Petra - really knowledgeable, friendly, helpful.
-I'd recommend to take your own lunch, so you don't waste time buying it.
-Another couple and I, from our tour, went up the cable car - great view but this used up all of our spare time and I do think there were other areas I would have liked to explore.
-The time in Gibraltar is limited.
