  • Full Day Gibraltar Sightseeing Tour

    1. Full Day Gibraltar Sightseeing Tour

    Your minibus will pick you up from Torremolinos, Marbella or Estepona and we will drive you to Costa del Sol. Once in Gibraltar, our minibus will take us to all the major sights, including Punta Europa and Las Cuevas de San Miguel. Punta Europa, on the edge of the rock, has a lighthouse and stunning views of the African mountains, just across the water. Cuevas de San Miguel has more of an edge. Though now a major tourist attraction, it was once a refuge for soldiers during wars and a secret passageway for those looking to escape. After the tour, we will give you the time to explore the shopping district of Calle Real and surrounding areas.

    Brilliant experience. The coach driver in Gibraltar was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable and knew what he was on about.

  • Full-Day Gibraltar Shopping Tour from the Costa del Sol

    2. Full-Day Gibraltar Shopping Tour from the Costa del Sol

    Spend the day shopping in Gibraltar from the Costa del Sol and get more for your money. The British territory offers unrivalled shopping opportunities, with duty-free prices on many goods, and top British stores on Main Street. With hotel pick-ups in the Torremolinos, Marbella, and Estepona zones, you will travel along the picturesque Costa del Sol, past the Contravallation Line, all the way to Gibraltar where you will have free time to explore its many shops. Your full day to Gibraltar departs at 08:20, which will give you plenty of time once you have crossed the border. Explore the famous Rock, and browse all the fantastic shops and boutiques, including the famous Gibraltar Crystal, where you will find many beautiful items made of quality crystal. You will even have time to do a bit of sightseeing before you return. Head down to the grotto of St. Michael’s Cave, and look out for the...

    Day trip to Gibraltar, just about enough time there. We did our own thing there and had time to walk to cable car and go up to the top and walk around all the main sites at the top that we wanted to see and walk back to town. Transport very comfortable and spot on time. Other pick-ups obviously add time to the journey but not too bad.

  • Granada Full Day with Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens

    3. Granada Full Day with Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens

    Discover the historical city of Granada, land of the Alhambra and the Generalife gardens on this full-day tour. The Moors built Alhambra in the 13th century. Charles V, ruler of the Holy Roman Empire from 1516, built the court of Charles V in the 16th century. The Generalife gardens are a well-deserved UNESCO World Heritage Site, built by Mohammed III in the 14th century. Once you have finished here, enjoy a guided tour to the historical city center to explore the surroundings of the Royal Chapel, the Alcaiceria, Corral del Carbon, the Cathedral and more. You'll also get the chance to wander off and find some traditional tapas. 

    We were disappointed with the multilinguality of the guidances. We expected pure English. Now German dominated.

  • Full-Day Ronda Tour from Costa del Sol

    4. Full-Day Ronda Tour from Costa del Sol

    Begin with a pickup by air-conditioned coach in Costa del Sol. Sit back and relax on the journey. Admire the beauty of the picturesque streets during the free time you will have in Setenil de las Bodegas. Feel the relaxing atmosphere and walk around at your own pace.

    Back in the bus, head to Ronda with your guide and enjoy a panoramic tour. See the Almocabar Gate, the Church of the Holy Spirit, and the Church of Santa Maria la Mayor, among others. Visit the Maestranza bullring on your own, one of the oldest ones in Spain and considered the cradle of traditional bullfighting.

    Home of the famous Goyesca bullfighting style, enjoy a visit to its museum and see its typical clothing. You will have free time to visit and to have lunch on your own. Meet your guide back again for the return trip to Costa del Sol.

    Loved the visit to Ronda but could've done with just one toilet break before arriving. Also would've liked to have more free time at the bull ring. Overall was a fantastic time and very friendly guide and driver

Today, you can discover the wonder and mystery of Seville on a full day tour bringing you into the heart of this panoramic city. Your guide greets you and takes you right into the heart of the historic center, where you first visit the Cathedral of Seville.

Next, it's time to visit the Giralda, one of the three remaining Almohad minarets that stand in these parts. Mixed with all this history, the Jewish Quarter of Santra Cruz also sits nearby, and you'll enjoy the narrow streets and quaint courtyards. Stop to smell the flowers here (literally), which blossom seemingly out of every corner and windowsill you pass. During your day, you'll...

    Great. Our guide Miguel was excellent and very helpful. He was also out local guide. Would recommend it.

Planning Your Visit

  • Getting around

    Renting a car is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to get around the region. For day hire there are a few central places in Estepona--try to compare online before you go, or ask for quotes from a few before committing, and make sure the price includes an excess waiver (unless you have separate insurance coverage). For ease, it may be worth hiring a car from the airport. Compare online, before leaving home, for the best price.

  • Golf in the region

    Southern Spain is a popular place for golf and there is no shortage of courses to serve your needs in Estepona. Estepona Golf Course is a popular, reasonably priced, and well-manicured course; while 18 holes at Valle Romano will set you back a little more, although it's a nicer course with great views.

If you want more time in Gibraltar, better book a sightseeing tour instead of guided. We had 4 and half hours in Gibraltar, so there wasn't time for the cable car. But overall organisation was good. Special thanks to the local guide John for the usefull information and driving masterclass!

Everything is very clear, on time, but the road takes 4 hours from Torremolinos, Gibraltar is wonderful, the guide is great, I liked everything very much.

We were greeted very nicely, everything was straightforward. The Zossen were really nice, as absolute beginners we felt very safe.

Brilliant experience. The coach driver in Gibraltar was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable and knew what he was on about.

Superb city, the guide Maria del Mar is very professional and the driver Joseph is perfect !! I recommend.
