    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.

To our surprise, our guide Petra was a German, although the tour is not offered in German. Petra was able to give us good tips in Gibraltar. First we went to the southernmost point of Europe and then to the cave where the monkeys were waiting for us. A great experience!

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.

Overall, everything was perfect. One downside on the return: a long enough walk to find the return bus. Our Roman guide was very efficient.

Our guide was excellent. The day was well planned and full but not rushed.
