What people are saying about Gibraltar

Excellent day out, from start to finish. The guide, Ana, was wonderful, informative & multilingual. Picked up from close to our apartment and travelled to Gibraltar. The bus was completely full so was hard for couples/groups to get a seat together. Had to get off the bus entering and leaving Gibraltar to go through passport control and also through baggage control/bag check on the way out again. Gibraltar is absolutely stunning and highly recommended. We had 1.5hr free time to explore b4 meeting Ana who walked us to the marina (the 12 of us doing the dolphin part of of the trip) We saw a huge amount of stunning dolphins, 2 species, and returned for 2 more hrs of free time around the area.....would actually consider staying there in the future....its so picturesque. Thank you for a wonderful day

It was a lovely day, definetly worth going. Tour is quite rushed, in order to manage all the sightseeing. Would have been nice to start an hour earlier, as we were advised that pick up is at 8.45 and they arrived at 9am. We’ve seen monkeys, but not what expected. Not much to see in Gibraltar. But definetely worth going for a day trip :)

Good way to get a quick view of Gib. Our guide Joe was really knowledgeable. Make sure you keep the nature pass as it gets you access to all the other attractions.

A great trip with the Dolphins. The children are delighted. It is a pity that there is not much time to visit the old town, but still great. I recommend

The boat tour was great and we were even out on the sea for over 1.5 hours. We saw 2 types of dolphins. The tour guide explained everything well.
