Took the bus from Malaga city which made several stops along the way to pick up others. Felt we had a very appropriate amount of free time as well as rock tour when we got to Gibraltar. Tour guides were very prompt, informative and helpful- especially getting the whole group through customs in a timely manner! Long day but great value for money! If you are leaving from Malaga city expect a long bus ride both ways (2.5-3hrs each way) as the bus has about 5 stops along the way to pick up other participants.

This was a great day out - offered an all rounder tour. The Rock Tour was great with awesome views across Gibraltar, monkeys and the cave was a highlight for sure. Spectacular! Carlos was our guide and he went above and beyond for his guests. Cannot fault the tour as it was more than I expected.

Daniel, our guide and driver was wonderful. He was informative and funny. He was patient answering questions and doubts. Although it rained, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

It was a fantastic day, from the travel companion to the bus driver, everything was great. Thanks very much
