What people are saying about Gibraltar

We had two guides, one in Cadiz (he took us on a city tour of Cadiz before we went to Gibraltar) and one in Gibraltar. The "handover from us" at the border to Gebaltar worked perfectly. Mustafa, our guide in Gibraltar was sensational. He spoke English, but in a way that even those of us who didn't speak English very well understood everything. And then he gave us the opportunity to get in touch with the monkeys on the Affenberg - that was really awesome.

Loved everything about this day - what a great experience! Petra is a wonderful guide, full of energy and made sure we are all sharp on time and follow the agenda :)))) passport control was so much fun if you are not from EU but pleasantly fast comparing to normal UK boarders. Lots of beautiful pictures and memories - must do!

Just superb Excellent tour the company arranged the trip even at the last minute because of a computer glitch. Even then The personnel at the company and every body involved was so helpful that’s beyond great service. I am so thankful to them Simply superb 7 star
