We were surprised that the tri included a minibus tour and entrance to the nature reserve. We dripped off at the caves and clim ed up on our own - great opportunity to explore! Time was limited and the schedule was a bit unclear in the beginning, but we truly loved Ales and his personality. Thank you!
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.
Very informative trip. Learned a lot of things about Gibraltar and the surrounding area. Our guide was entertaining and personable. The trip was comfortable and long. Maybe too many pick-up and drop-off points for those starting from Málaga.
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 ...)
Great excursion with a great guide and very personable guides.
