Have been to gib before and done the guided tours etc. Just wanted to do my thing at my pace and this trip gave me over 5 hrs to do that so yes was good. For me it was an easy cheap way to get to Gibraltar albeit at the expense of lots of stops which didn't bother me as I don't mind the journey

It was very enjoyable small group tour. Our guide Xavier picked us up from the hotel as promised 8:30am. He was very knowledgeable and provided us with lots of details about Girona, Figueres and Dali.

Very well organised and everything on time. Guides on coach and on Gibraltar Rock trip both excellent. Knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend this trip.

It was clearly informed about the meeting place. The Guide Ana was very helpful, told interesting and personal information.

Spectacular experience. Much more than we thought the “Rock” might be.
