Costa del Sol, Spain
Cross the border from Spain into British territory, where you can see British policemen, spend British money and enjoy the duty free shopping.

What will you find?
While on the rock you will visit the Saint Michael caves, a dramatic natural grotto sometimes used as a venue for concerts and classical music performances.
There will also be time to meet the locals - the semi wild troop of Barbary "Apes" (they are actually Barbary macaque monkeys). It is said the British will not leave Gibraltar until the apes have left. Hang on to your belongings though, they are cheeky little monkeys!
Descending from the Rock, you have free time for shopping in the main street, where everything is sold from the latest designer fashions to what is probably the best known 100 percent cotton underwear in the world!

We basically had three guides and each one knew his subject very well and presented it well. Paco, our Tour Bus guide dealt with the historical part of Spain, the Gibraltar Van Guide talked about the history of Gibraltar and Stephen, the Tunnel Guide, dealt with the construction of the 52 kilometers of tunnels. Each one had humorous stories to make things interesting, but the Tunnel Guide actually worked in the tunnels of Gibraltar in modern times. The British Army built the tunnels at Gibraltar while the RAF built the runway. Our Guide, being a British Army retiree, had many tall tales about the RAF at Gibraltar Should you take the tour, make sure you ask the Guide how the 5,000 military intermingled with the 300 females in Gibraltar. This tour is strongly recommended.
the guide was excellent at getting around the long car and bus lineups and customs. the guide was also conscientious of our mobility issues and was always making sure we didn't get lost etc.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour, I thought there would be long delays at the border but there was not. The coach was prompt and driver informative. when in Gibraltar we got a minibus which took us to the top of the rock the minibus driver/guide was fantastic so informative about history etc of th eeeWrock.StMichaels caves was marvellous as were the monkies. Well worth the money I will go again.
Being in Marbella we were the last to get picked up and the first to be dropped off- which was great for us. Once in Gibralter we had a great tour guide to drive us around the rock, funny and entertaining.
The monekys were out in force. Watch out they do bite and they do steal food if you have any!!
All in all this was a well organised excellent tour.
We really enjoyed our day trip to Gibraltar. Bus was comfortable and completely full on our day of travel. We departed Torremolinos at 8.45am and were in the bus-park in Gibraltar at 11.15am. It took only two minutes to get across the border!
We had free time to shop in the main street and were asked to be back at the bus park for 1pm, to continue the tour of 'The Rock'. We decided that this was not sufficient time to explore the main town area, the shops, museums etc, therefore we did not return to the bus park at 1pm. We stayed in the town until the bus departed back to the Costa Del Sol at 3.45pm.
Even then, we could have spent a lot more time locally. We did not get to see everything.
Next time we are on Holiday on Costa Del Sol, we will do this trip again and hopefully see the whole rock. It has even whetted our appetite to visit Gibraltar for a holiday weekend.
Overall, the trip was really good, but if you want to do the whole Rock Tour, your time will be limited in the town itself. Ideally the bus should leave a little earlier and return a little later!
