This was a very pleasant experience. The bus was on time, clean and spacious. It went through a number of smaller Andalusian beach towns on the way to Gibraltar so you got to see a lot of southern coastal Spain both to and from the location. The guide spoke English very well, was very informative about both Gibraltar and Spain in general. She was very helpful getting us back and forth across the border and we had plenty of time to sightsee. The bus driver, Javier, did an outstanding job maneuvering that big old bus around safely. The value for the money is very good!

The hosts was professional and friendly. The boat even had a deck where you can lay down and just enjoy the sea. The Cava and Tapas were delicious and on time. We also saw the dolphins! So it was an exceptional experience, thanks a lot.

Jorge is an excellent guide, very good explanations with a good dose of humor, which made the journey interesting and quick. It was interesting and informative. I really recommend this excursion!

Can’t recommend jorje enough! Absolutely amazing host. Funny and could answer any questions about Gibraltar people asked. Such a lovely man

Alex was our guide!! He is great!! We were traveling with young kids!! They loved the experience! Amazing day watching dolphins!!
