From Cádiz: Private Day Trip to Gibraltar & Vejer Tour

4. From Cádiz: Private Day Trip to Gibraltar & Vejer Tour

Benefit from a pick-up from your hotel and then journey by air-conditioned minivan to the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar, home to the only wild macaques (Barbary apes) in Europe. Although free to move throughout the city, they're usually found in the limestone rocks of the Peñón de Gibraltar (Rock of Gibraltar), and according to superstition, if the monkeys ever leave the rock then so will the British. An important city during Roman times, Gibraltar has preserved its old town charm, and blends scenic splendor with a modern vibe. While the 426 meter high Rock of Gibraltar looking across the straits to Africa is the main sight, other attractions include the Gibraltar Museum, where the territory's swashbuckling history is brought to life. Take a stroll along Main Street to see the Cathedral of Saint Mary the crowned and the official residence of the Governor of Gibraltar at the Convent. The town of Vejer was declared a historical site and awarded the National Prize for the beautification of Andalusian towns. Its Moorish heritage is evident in the popular architecture and design of its neighborhoods like the Judería. It is perched on top of a beautiful hill overlooking the river Barbate. The town takes pride in its historic legacy from past civilizations such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans. In 711 the Battle of La Janda was fought near the town. After this battle, the Visigoths lost control of the peninsula to the Moors. The town of Vejer has always been walled and some of its towers are still well preserved (the Mayorazgo Tower, the San Juan Tower and the Corredera Tower), and its four medieval town gates are perfectly integrated in the town, namely the Segur Arch Gate, the Puerta de la Villa, the Sancho IV and the Puerta Cerrada. The castle (11th to 16th-centuries) stands at the highest part of the old town and can be reached through a beautiful horseshoe arch. It combines elements of both Muslim and Christian architecture. The town also boasts some magnificent examples of religious architecture.

Loved everything about this day - what a great experience! Petra is a wonderful guide, full of energy and made sure we are all sharp on time and follow the agenda :)))) passport control was so much fun if you are not from EU but pleasantly fast comparing to normal UK boarders. Lots of beautiful pictures and memories - must do!

Roman is a true professional. During the trip he did not stop explaining anecdotes from Andalusia and Gibraltar. The Gibraltar chauffeur another machine. I would also add a typical meal like fish and chips. It would already be the icing on this tour.

Ramon gave us a special day, a lot of information, we look back on it with pleasure, it is definitely worth doing this tour.

enjoyable day exploring Gibraltar and seeing all the interesting parts.

Well organized. Knowledgeable guide. Adequate free time
