Original Rock Tour
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.

Our driver was very good. He gave us a running commentary during the tour. We learned many things about the history of Gibraltar. We saw many of the sights. It was a long walk to the parking garage. At the end of the tour, he did drop us off near the center of town for shopping which was nearer the ship.

Loved walking around the town and enjoyed cobblestone roads. It is the place to pick up cigars and liquor as there is no tax. If you are cruising don't pick up your merchandise in the terminal wait till you get to town its cheaper. The guide was funny and full of info. Getting the chance to walk in side the rock was amazing. Brits are known not to tip so when the driver asked for a tip it through us for a loop. Lets not go down that road once you start it will become expected. And to ask for it is not cool. Tips were never asked from any of the other guides but they were appreciated. Brits don't tip so why should we tip them it ain't going to happen under my watch
