Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Join up with your guide at one of the central meeting points on the Costa del Sol, and settle inside your air-conditioned coach. Then, journey along the coast to the British territory of Gibraltar, set on a promontory that juts into the Mediterranean Sea.

Best known for its towering limestone ridge known as the Rock of Gibraltar, this chunk of British territory is also famous for its duty-free shopping and British institutions, including its British-style pubs, trademark red telephone boxes and policemen dressed in British uniforms!

On arrival, take a panoramic coach tour and visit Europa Point, Gibraltar’s southernmost point. View the lighthouse that stands at the gateway between the Mediterranean and Atlantic, and absorb the spectacular views over the Strait of Gibraltar toward North Africa.

Next, hop onto a minibus for a guided tour of the iconic Rock. On your way up, stop to visit beautiful St Michael Cave, a network of natural limestone caverns hollowed into the cliff. Marvel at the stalactites and stalagmites as you learn how the cave has been used through the centuries, and behold the largest cave, a natural grotto regularly used as a venue for concerts and other events.

Then, head up the rock to meet its famous residents: the semi-wild Barbary macaque monkeys, known locally as 'Barbary apes.' Hear the story of how the British will never leave Gibraltar until the apes depart, and take snaps of these cheeky animals, taking care to watch your belongings!

Later, head back down the rock, and enjoy free time to explore independently. Perhaps enjoy a meal (own expense), stroll around the pretty lanes, or head for Main Street, the partly pedestrianized, long shopping avenue. Browse the department stores, international fashion chains and handicrafts shops, and maybe snap up duty-free favorites such as liquor, watches, fragrances and other great-value goodies.

When the time comes, return to your coach and ride back to the Costa del Sol where your tour ends at the start point.

Gibraltar Day Trip

The trip was great. Gibraltar exceeded expectations and our tour guides were wonderful. The vistas of the African mountains, the cave, harbor and of course the monkeys were super. I would like to have had more free time after the small bus tour.

Going home

The bus driver left me at the pick up stop. I told him I was scheduled for the Gibraltar trip and all he said was autobus shook his head closed the door in my face and drove off. The bus was label Julia tours so I knew I was Kim the right place but he left me anyways. So I contacted the company and they said it was my fault. And the switch my trip to the next day. And cancelled my Caminito Del Rey to due to weather. When I shown up the next day to the same bus I was able to board. However this tour guide left another guest at the terminal in Gibraltar and blamed her. Then charged another saying she only paid for transport. Then on the way back pressured some of us to switch busses to make the travel back more convenient. I think this company looks poorly to Viator and should be banned from the site.

Nice tour but doesn't follow the description
Susanna_S
, Mar 2020
My kids and I enjoyed the Gibraltar tour. Just a few words though, on the point that the tour didn't follow the description given here at the Viator site. First of all, the visit on the Rock was after the visit to the Main Street. From the description you'd think it was the other way round. The given time at the Main Street was 2 hours, not 3 hours as promised. The trip up to the Rock was done on minibuses, which were not air conditioned. Luckily the day of our visit was not very hot. The visit to the cave was 20 minutes, not 1 hour as promised. Then we got 10 minutes to see the view and meet the monkeys, not 20 minutes. After the tour to the Rock we were then given 40 minutes to enjoy the bus carage, where there was a kiosk/coffee shop and a souvenir shop. Our driver, who took us up the Rock, David, was super cool and nice, full five stars for him!

Nice trip out but very long
Edward_S
, Feb 2020
It was a nice trip out, but knowing how long it took traveling would be great. 3hrs each way from Málaga due to picking up everyone from different locations. Cave was good to see and the monkeys. We felt a bit rushed in the town but got some cheap bargains. Gin UK was £29 here £16, cigs were £25 a pack. To improve they could break up the journey better.

Great trip, really enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgeable, was able to converse with people in Spanish, English and German. He told us great stories about the places we visited. I would have liked to have a little more time in Gibraltar, but overall it was brilliant!

A Dream Come True

Many, many yrs ago, I saw a NatGeo show or something similar about the RoG and the monkeys living there and the tourists. Always desired to go some day. Well- it came true with this unexpected trip to the south of Spain. I loved this, my friend and I used the beginning of our free time to hike up to the Moorish Castle on the Rock. Got our first glimpse of the African Cont from there. We went up by way of the Castle stairs, it's quite a walk (stair climb), I had my walking trek pole along. Beautiful views along the way. Just amazing to see how the residents live along the steep climb on the way. On our way back down, we found a wonderful little store "Abuelas" along the steep path. She made all her own food. We had a great lunch for about 4 Euros ea. After we met our group again, we did the mini-bus ride, they take you up to St Michaels caves (very nice). At that height, the monkeys appear all over the place. They are so cute- but are still wild animals. Be careful about flashing food stuff. And hold belongings tight. We even heard about being careful of a phone sticking out of a back pocket. Use your common sense. This was a great day- I'm praising GOD for great travels and wonderful adventures.

The trip went very smoothly. We had a tour guide on the island itself who was incredible. He was just fun to be around. I love the monkeys on the island. And I like that we had time to explore ourselves around the city

Gibraltar as you do not want to see

, Oct 2019
The car was late, and the guide was lazy. We loosed a lot of time waiting for the guide to organize various stages of our trip, and almost all of the real trip (about 1.5 hours out of the total of aprox 10), was mostly getting up and down from the bus. You want to go to the top of The Rock? You will never do it with Julia Travel. So overall, much ado about nothing!
