A good full day tour - the only downside is the early start (6.30 am) from Malaga and you go through many other places to pick up passengers before heading on the road to Gibraltar. I don't think there is any way around this as it would be impractical and too expensive to run smaller buses from each town - thus having less pickups. However, the trip is worth it - there is some stunning scenery along the route and the view of three continents as you enter Gibraltar is beautiful - even better on a clear day when you can see Africa very clearly.

Excellent experience with watching delphine. My children and my mum were over the moon. There was music and you can buy drink also so it was like a party for kids. Will recommend to everyone. Thank you

Great organization, really nice tour guide (Ana) and the driver. ;) Big Joe from tour to the Rock was also AMAZING (and extremely funny!). Love it!
