Full description
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. Continue your Gibraltar Rock tour as visit the Great Siege Tunnels, carved out by the Merchant Marines to defend Gibraltar during the Great Siege of 1779 to 1783. Walk down the well-lit tunnels and pass many old guns that defended the Spanish border through holes in the walls. At the end of the tunnel is St George's Hall, a large cave with many cannons that also defended the Mediterranean side of the Rock. Your tour ends at Casemates Main Square, where you can enjoy shopping, eating and relaxing.

An interesting and informative Tour

Should have been 6 but only four of us could attend the tour on the day. Having booked through 'Get your guide' the tour itself was conducted by a local company 'Parody Heritage' We were not off a ship or staying somewhere up the Costa Del Sol which 'Get your guide' mainly appears to cater for, so it was a bit confusing trying to determine how long the tour would actually last. We were picked up at 10 a.m. as pre-arranged at the border In a large 20 seater, coach, which appeared a bit of overkill even for a party of six. the driver was friendly and well informed. We were taken round all the usual sites and the tour finished exactly 3 hours later with us choosing to be dropped off near Main Street. We did not get to the 'Top of the Rock' on the tour but managed to do so at a later stage by the cable car.

Excellent guide with a lot of expertise

A motivated, committed and very attentive guide / driver accompanied us (we were a group of three people) through the afternoon. We received a lot of insightful information, this tour is really recommended. Unfortunately I could not book for myself, but only for two people. So I paid twice the price - this should be changed by the organizer.
