Original Rock Tour
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.
This was a spectacular tour. The guide was excellent They were on time. There was plenty of time to explore by ourselves. I would recommend this tour without reservations.

Our bus driver/tour guide was excellent. The tour was excellent. Just enough time at all the stops. We were very happy with our excursion. Things were a little unorganized at the depot where we boarded our bus once we got on the bus everything was smooth sailing.
It was a very nice tour overall. The walk to the bus station was a bit long, but it was nice also. I would suggest a small picture map be included to make it easier for visual people to navigate. Viewing the monkeys was extremely crowded, but the views in the cave and at the rock were amazing.

The small bus tour was a good overall introduction to the area. The traffic was heavy so we were slowed down a bit, but the driver/tour guide was well informed and gave us good background. He delivered us back to the ship which was nice. It would be nice to have more signs or people with the tour company to help sort out the crowded bus area; it really is not too safe with so many people and so many buses coming and going in a small area.
