Our Day Tour of Gibraltar

Welcome to our full-day guided tour of Gibraltar, where you’ll encounter a unique blend of cultural, historical, and natural attractions, with influences from the UK, Spain, and North Africa evident in its architecture, food, and traditions.

From the iconic Rock of Gibraltar and its Barbary macaques to the panoramic views at Europa Point and the multicultural vibe of Main Street, the small British territory provides an unexpected wealth of experiences that defy its size.

10 Day Private Tour: It was such a pleasure to work with Emily. Everything went off without a hitch! There were some changes either in drivers or guides but this was communicated in advance via whats app. Drivers were always on time and very professional. Our 2 favorite guides were Daniel Guia in Madrid and Luis Salas in Seville. They gave great recommendations for shopping, restaurants or sights to visit when you were on your own. We had so many wonderful experiences on our trip from the private horse show outside of Cordoba with a live Spanish guitarist to the white villages , tapas bars, walking tours of Seville, Madrid and the Alhambra. Emily was in contact all the time if needed . Sorry Emily it took so long to write this, life gets so busy and that 's why you have Guided Spain plan your trip!

Ascend the Rock of Gibraltar

Next, we head to the Rock of Gibraltar, a limestone ridge rising over 400 meters above sea level. A cable car ride whisks you to the top, where you’re greeted by panoramic vistas of the city, the Spanish coastline, and the Moroccan Rif Mountains.

It’s also home to the famous Barbary macaques, who are as curious about you as you are about them!

The Barbary Apes Den: Europe's Only Wild Monkeys

At the Barbary Apes Den, one of Gibraltar’s most popular attractions, you’ll get the unique opportunity to interact with the Barbary macaques, Europe’s only wild monkey population. The den, located within the Gibraltar Nature Reserve, comprises around 300 macaques distributed among five troops.

Upon arriving, you’ll be greeted by the playful and curious monkeys freely roaming their natural habitat. These friendly creatures are accustomed to human visitors but remember, they’re still wild animals. Our guide will provide important tips to ensure both you and the macaques have a safe, enjoyable encounter.

Watch these fascinating animals in action – playing, grooming each other, or simply lounging around, all against the backdrop of stunning views of the city below and the Straits of Gibraltar. Listen to their vocal interactions and observe their intriguing social dynamics.

Remember to keep your belongings secure, as these playful primates are known for their quick hands and curious nature!

Explore St. Michael's Cave and Siege Tunnels

The next destination on our Gibraltar day tour is St. Michael’s Cave.

This spectacular natural grotto inside the Rock has inspired legends for centuries and now serves as a unique concert venue. Your guide will illuminate the cave’s history as you marvel at its stalagmites and stalactites.

From here, we venture into the Great Siege Tunnels, a labyrinthine network carved by the British during the Great Siege of Gibraltar in the late 18th century.

Fabulous Spain/Portugal trip through Emily! We booked with Emily solely after reading these reviews for a 2 week trip to Portugal and southern Spain. Never met her prior. She and her team exceeded our expectations. Every detail of the trip went smoothly and her planning was perfect for our group. Lots of guided tours intermingled with just the right amount of free time. We challenged Emily and her team with 3 generations of travelers from 18 months to upper 60's and she handled our group perfectly, such as baby seats in cars and cribs in hotel rooms. Our trip included Lisbon, Porto, Sevilla, and Madrid with day trips to Cordoba, Rhonda and and a small "white city." All in, we would highly recommend Guided Spain Tours, Emily and her team for any travel in Spain and Portugal. She also does Morocco but we didn't have time for that.

Experience Gibraltar's Main Street

We conclude the day with a stroll down Main Street, Gibraltar’s bustling shopping district. A melange of British, Spanish, and Moroccan influences, it’s the perfect place to pick up souvenirs, from traditional British goods to Spanish ceramics and Moroccan crafts.

Return To Your Accommodation

As the day comes to a close, our driver will escort you back to your accommodation, bringing an end to your Gibraltar adventure.

Reflect on the day’s experiences, from the stunning views atop the Rock to the echoes of history in St. Michael’s Cave and the multicultural vibes of Main Street.
