Overall rating

3.8 / 5

Es war die Reise wert. Man muss einfach beachten, dass man für die Hinfahrt mit den Pick-up-Stops etwas Zeit einberechnen muss. Dann reicht es, wenn man nur die „Shopping-Tour“ bucht. Den Rest kann man gut alleine machen. Wenn man mit der Seilbahn hoch fährt, kauft man gleich ein Ticket für „natural reserve“ und hat alle Sehenswürdigkeiten inbegriffen für 32€ Man schafft alles in 5h denn der Aufenthalt dauert meist 8h. Wichtig, man sollte etwas Grundkondition beisitzen.

A slightly quick tour of the lighthouse + the quarry part the fabulous light show + 2h of free time for lunch and wandering around the main streets of Gibraltar. The guide, Maria, has always been very kind.

Our trip guide and coordinator was excellent, so were the local guides that took us up the rock. Gibraltar is a great day trip from Seville.

We messed up the timing. Parody tours were so accommodating and we ended up having a private tour with the most AMAZING tour guide

Superb experience with all of you customers, guide, friendly driver, warm and good! thanks again !
