Roman, our tour guide for the bus ride and visit to Gibraltar was wonderful. He provided us with a lot of information about Spain, Sevilla, and Gibraltar. He recommended places to eat in Gibraltar and Sevilla. The walk across the border to get into Gibraltar was not a big deal. Once in Gibraltar we had time for some shopping and lunch before meeting our local guide, Louis. Louis was very friendly. The caves, the views and the monkeys were amazing. Although it is a long day, I would recommend this to tour.
Explore Gibraltar, the United Kingdom's outpost on the Iberian Peninsula for more than 200 years. First, ride to the southernmost point in Gibraltar, Europa Point. Visit the Trinity House lighthouse with impressive views across the Straits of Gibraltar to the Northern coast of Africa, which is visible on a clear day. The next stop is spectacular St. Michael’s Cave, which during World War II the cave was converted into a military hospital. It has a wealth of history dating back thousands of years. Today it is used as a concert hall, making it one of the best natural auditoriums, with great acoustics and a seating capacity for 400 people. Then travel to the Apes' Den, where the famous Barbary Apes may be observed in their natural habitat – the only apes roaming wild in Europe.

Top excursion - central meeting point in Málaga (on time), bus transfer to Gibraltar, border crossing, Gibraltar rock tour in the minibus - but not in German as booked (applies to the bus transfer and the minibus) - after several bookings, however, you are used to that the tour is not in German, but at least in English (it would be better to offer it in English only)
Very interesting and very nice to be in Gibraltar. Especially since Gibraltar is a bit special because of that rock, the monkeys that live freely there and it is a British overseas territory. I had never realized that they have their own coin there, but that was a nice extra for me because I collect coins.
A great trip! We are so happy with the whole package! (However, we were about to miss the bus in the morning. We realized that it was bus mr 11 that went from the big bus station ...)
Excellent. All it was perfect: the pick up out of the hotel, the trip to Gibraltar and the visit of the city. Peter, our guide, was the surplus.
Great excursion with a great guide and very personable guides.
