Full description

Your tour will begin as you meet your bus in the center of Málaga, near el Corte Inglés, or elsewhere along the Costa del Sol. From there you will take a coach to Gibraltar, traveling in air-conditioned comfort complete with reclining seats, WiFi, and USB ports. Throughout the journey, your guide will provide you with information about interesting things to do and see once having arrived at Gibraltar. Once having passed through customs, your coach will drive inside Gibraltar before stopping in the city center to park for free time.

If you booked the full nature reserve rock tour option, enjoy a panoramic tour of Gibraltar, visiting places such as the Strait of Gibraltar, and access to the interior of the St. Michel Caves. You will also be able to see Barbary macaques at the Apes Den.

After the panoramic tour, you will get free time to have lunch (not included) and to explore the area for shopping and visiting hotspots like Main Street, Casemates Square, Marina Bay, or the Mediterranean Steps. Your bus will return in the afternoon for drop-off at your pickup location.

A nice well organised day out. However when we left the coach in Gibraltar, we had two layers starting taking photos of everyone who got off the bus. They appeared to do this without permission and we did not know what they were doing this for, it turns out it was to turn our photos into souvenirs. They should not be allowed to take peoples photos without permission in that way.

I highly recommend Rios Travel. We had a great time in Gibraltar. The bus was accurate and comfortable. Firstly, we did not take part in Rock of tour and we regretted it, because it seemed too complicated to up to Gibraltar. ( the Cable car was closed) we desperately tried to find the path, but fortunately we met with our guide on the Main Street and he was very helpful and kind. We could not take a part with our group because they had gone with bus but he came with us and showed the path of Gibraltar by walk. Meanwhile we got a lot of interesting information about area by him. This program was absolutely perfect and i hope we will return once. Thank you!

We were with young children 2 and 6 years old. We ran out of time to explore the mountain the most. Too much "free" time compared to sightseeing, so everything is on the run, with macaques only a few photos and only europa point and st. Michael caves in the program. There was no stop at Siege tunnels where there is a great observation deck on the costa del sol and the airport and contact with Macaques. There are also no pillars of Hercules, but different views. You can see that everything is being done on the run.
