Discover Gibraltar in comfort. This epic Gibraltar tour takes you to Europa Point to see the Pillars of Hercules before reaching the Nature Reserve - home of the Barbary ape. Then visit St. Michael's Cave and Princess Catherine's Battery before seeing the Moorish Castle's Tower of Homage.
You'll drive through tunnels with your professional English-speaking guide to Europa Point, an area forming the southernmost point of Gibraltar - a British Overseas Territory abutting Spain. Nearby is the mighty Rock of Gibraltar, a giant limestone standing 1,398 feet above the Mediterranean Sea.
From here, you'll see views (across the Strait of Gibraltar) toward northern Africa, where the Mons Abyla rock formation stands. Both rocks, the Rock of Gibraltar and the Mons Abyla, form the mythical Pillars of Hercules. Legend states Hercules pushed the two rocks apart so the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea could meet.
Your Gibraltar tour continues towards the Upper Rock to the Nature Reserve, home of the famous Barbary Macaques Apes. You'll be able to interact with the "Rock Apes" in their own environment.
Next up is St. Michael's Cave. This stunning limestone cave stands 980 feet above sea level. Its ambience and acoustics create the ideal location for regular concerts and events.
Your journey continues onto Princess Caroline's Battery. Built in 1732 and named after Princess Caroline, the daughter of King George II, this former military building cemented Britain's claim to Gibraltar. You'll then pass the aged Tower of Homage at the Moorish Castle to see its walls scarred by Spanish cannons during the siege years.
The adventure to the sights of historic Gibraltar finishes following a visit to the town center, where shopping and dining opportunities abound. Book this Gibraltar tour now for an unforgettable experience at a low price.

Great guide, great stops at Europa Point, St Michael's Cave and the Monkey Den. Meeting point in car park was a bit obscure but clearly a major operation with buses departing all day as soon as they are full. Though interesting, would have preferred less "city tour" and more or longer stops (Moors Castle, upper galleries, tunnels).

Nice all around tour pointing out the major highlights of Gibraltar.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide was great, a native of Gibraltar and he had excellent information. It is not far to go for the sites so the 2 hour tour was long enough. Our guide went above and beyond and took us through a little town tour and because of time he dropped us right off at the port. If there was anything that could be changed, it would be the meeting place as many have commented on. It would be nice if they worked out the tours so the pick up was closer to the port. It wasn't easy to find. Other than that we thought it was great!!

Was glad to walk into town and meet small bus. Monkeys fun, caves interesting and views spectacular. It is a little confusing getting to meeting point but nothing that would ruin your SMALL tour.

After a short walk to the meeting point, met the guide for the tour. Tour was a small group tour conducted in a mini-van. The guide was knowledgeable, informative, engaging and witty. Saw the sights as advertised. Guide imparted great information and had unique insights to share. Able to answer any question. Highly recommend this tour!
