Great hour or so spent on the boat. It took us a while to spot the dolphins but when we did they didn’t disappoint. Crew were really friendly and helpful. Ticket included the cable car to the top of the rock but it doesn’t include entrance to the rest of the rock and it’s pathways and the monkeys. So be aware of this as you’ll need to pay extra when you get up there if you want to walk around. It cost £16 extra each for these tickets once we got up there.

Fantastic day trip to morrocco great value superb guides from start to finish a real chance to experience some of the real traditional side of morrocan culture food and seeinh how the city works would definately recomend this day trip to anyone who wants to visit north africa thanks for a superb experience

I traveled with a 9 year old and 1 year old. Petra was very helpful with having a car seat already secured on the bus so we didn’t have to bring ours. They also helped to stow our stroller and make arrangements to carry it on the bus up the mountain. So helpful. Thank you so much.

Great guide in Gibraltar who was friendly and very informative. The view was amazing and we loved St Michael cave. Only negative comment is the number of stops and time it took to get from Malaga to Gibraltar. Bus was very comfortable.

We enjoyed our tour to Gibraltar very much. José our guide and Lola the driver were very good and pleasant. The bus was very comfortable.
