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.

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

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 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.

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.

Going home

The bus driver left me at the pick up stop. I told him I was scheduled for the Gibraltar trip and all he said was autobus shook his head closed the door in my face and drove off. The bus was label Julia tours so I knew I was Kim the right place but he left me anyways. So I contacted the company and they said it was my fault. And the switch my trip to the next day. And cancelled my Caminito Del Rey to due to weather. When I shown up the next day to the same bus I was able to board. However this tour guide left another guest at the terminal in Gibraltar and blamed her. Then charged another saying she only paid for transport. Then on the way back pressured some of us to switch busses to make the travel back more convenient. I think this company looks poorly to Viator and should be banned from the site.

Nice tour but doesn't follow the description
Susanna_S
, Mar 2020
My kids and I enjoyed the Gibraltar tour. Just a few words though, on the point that the tour didn't follow the description given here at the Viator site. First of all, the visit on the Rock was after the visit to the Main Street. From the description you'd think it was the other way round. The given time at the Main Street was 2 hours, not 3 hours as promised. The trip up to the Rock was done on minibuses, which were not air conditioned. Luckily the day of our visit was not very hot. The visit to the cave was 20 minutes, not 1 hour as promised. Then we got 10 minutes to see the view and meet the monkeys, not 20 minutes. After the tour to the Rock we were then given 40 minutes to enjoy the bus carage, where there was a kiosk/coffee shop and a souvenir shop. Our driver, who took us up the Rock, David, was super cool and nice, full five stars for him!
