Excellent guide with a lot of expertise

A motivated, committed and very attentive guide / driver accompanied us (we were a group of three people) through the afternoon. We received a lot of insightful information, this tour is really recommended. Unfortunately I could not book for myself, but only for two people. So I paid twice the price - this should be changed by the organizer.

Very memorable and a true experience

Our guide was so friendly and informative he made the trip very enjoyable. The visit to the Apes was slow and at a good pace for us all to enjoy these remarkable animals. The WW2 tunnels were really interesting and our guide was very clear in history.

The tour itself with Parody tours was fantastic!!! I would recommend to anyone. However, the day we book was a holiday and the firm was not operating, yet GetyourGuide allowed us to book

The guide David gave us a very charming tour of Gibraltar☀️

Very interesting tour enjoyed it a lot.

Great customer service from the office and the schedulers
