A well organised day, with plenty going on. Caves were spectacular. View point from the rock was amazing. Seeing the monkeys was the lowlight because we got 10 minutes were with them. The general guided information was very informative. The main guide was very passionate and formative, but did NOT STOP talking. Coach was comfy, but driver was veering all over the road. You are very rushed, so I don't recommend the day-trip. Generally, the trip was misleading, because you go to see the MONKEY'S!

Excellent day out for us! The lady, Patricia, who drove us to Gibraltar from Seville, also took care of us while we were in Gibraltar. The local tour guide in Gibraltar was also good and knowledgeable about the place. We really enjoyed the ride, the day. thank you, Patricia! Recommend this tour and you any time!
