Overall rating

Tour guide Antonia was knowledgeable and friendly, driver Andres was excellent. The tour was changed a little due to the weather and it was great. Another guide was arranged for in Gibraltar who was also great, didn’t catch his name, sorry. Went to St Michael’s cave, Military museum and the tunnels, all were a fantastic experience. A long day but well worth the money.

It was great. The guides were great and knew their stuff. Only issue we had was with another guest who literally talked to her 3-5 year child non-stop, making it hard to hear the guide at times. Certainly not the fault of the operator.

The trip was fantastic and we had a great time in Gibraltar. We had good time for shopping, lunch and walk around the city.Thank you to the guide Sara and the Driver Javier for this wonderful day.

My guide Bea and the driver were excellent. Punctuality and responsibility. Comfortable transportation. The guide is very friendly, with good knowledge and always attentive to clarifying doubts.

Amazing 👏 experience Weather was good 👍 not raining :) Driver was helpful and give us lots of information, monkey 🐒 was polite and friendly 😀 recommended 👍 😀 😉
