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 :)

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 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.

Great guides, beautiluy scenary, money well spent. For sure recomend.
