Full description

Enjoy the journey along Malaga and the Costa del Sol in a sightseeing bus tour while listening to your guide tell you anecdotes and curiosities of this British colony. Explore Gibraltar on your own and with a guide, then sail the Mediterranean in search of the many dolphins that roam the area.

Arrive in La Linea and cross the border into Gibraltar. Enjoy some free time to visit Casemates Square and the botanical garden of the Alameda. Stroll through the Marina Bays, or take the chance to walk along Main street.

Follow the directions of your guide to get to the square and find your way to the port of Gibraltar to board your boat. Once aboard, feel the breeze and catch sight of different types of Cetaceans that inhabit the area.

Navigate the calm seas for about an hour and a half and find the place where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Search for dolphins here, and catch sight of their majesty and intelligence, playing in the water. The guide on board will tell you about the most relevant curiosities and characteristics of the species that you encounter, the particularities of the Strait, declared Unesco World Biosphere Reserve. After the tour, you will have again free time to continue your visit in Gibraltar, where you can take the opportunity to have lunch. Meet in the midafternoon for your return journey to the pickup point.

Great trip. A place worth visiting. Wonderful views and an unforgettable meeting with dolphins. The joy of the meeting is the same for adults and children, something amazing. The guide and on-site care is exceptionally kind and helpful. Two important things to the organizer are: lack of full information about the course of the trip before buying it. It is worth emphasizing at this point that the attractions on site are not mutually exclusive and you can both meet dolphins and visit the Upper Rock Reserve. It is a pity that the organizer did not provide details with the plan of the visit to the site, it would make it easier to plan sightseeing and free time. If someone has chosen the option of sightseeing on their own, this does not preclude a change of decision, there is a large offer of guided tours on site at very favorable prices. 5 hours provided for on site is very little time to see even the most important attractions.

Both the outward journey and the return journey are very beautiful because the bus runs along the costa del sol which is very beautiful to admire, our guide Nathalie She explained many things with many historical details and even if we do not speak Spanish she made herself understood very good. She was really courteous and kind and sweet to all of us… The visit to the dolphins was very nice because we were able to see them and in any case I really enjoyed the whole organization of the trip and I was very satisfied. The Tuesday before I went to Gibraltar with another tour guide and it was the journey of hope because we never arrived with them but I found myself very well. I highly recommend choosing them.

The tour to Gibraltar was amazing! And plenty of time to do some shopping. What was frustrating that the boat tour consisted of around 3 different groups and trying to get a good view of the dolphins was hard especially when people on the boat would stand in front of where you are sitting. If I knew the boat tour was going to have loads of other groups, I probably wouldn’t have bothered with it, and looked for a separate Gibraltar tour.
