We have had a bad experience from minute zero, they made a mistake at the meeting point, which was in Tarifa, and we arrived half an hour late for everything, the guides left and left us alone in Gibraltar, no guide, no recommendations, absolutely nothing. the dolphin sighting is not worth much because you hardly see anything, apart from the fact that everything is in English, in total we spent 4 hours on the excursion, you don't have time for anything, we were left wanting to visit the nature reserve, too I have to say that the customer service has been the best, they respond immediately and they have reimbursed us half of what we paid. Even so, we are very disappointed since it was a gift that we and my daughter and I gave to my husband and it was a real disaster.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour / our guide Carlos Plata was absolutely amazing and being a Gibraltarian local, provided lots of information about the British Overseas Territory with humour thrown in. Thoroughly recommend the tour if your time is limited. Loved St Michael’s Cave and Europa Point. Thanks again. Sonny and Pete Sydney, AUSTRALIA.

The activity went very well.

The pick up was late and this is stressful when you don't speak Spanish and you don't have a phone to communicate. On the other hand the place for the pick up was precise and easy. I wish I had more than 15 min. in the caves. 2 people took 30 min. but we were told 15 min.

great !! taxi driver CARLOS PLATO took great care of our trip. very helpful for our 84 year old father. highly recommended and especially Carlos

Very interesting tour enjoyed it a lot.

Great customer service from the office and the schedulers
