Superb our very friendly Belgian guide, explanation in English, Spanish, French on Andalusia, the origin of the symbolism of the bull as well as the history of pigs with Iberico and Serrano ham during transport. Very friendly for going through customs and when visiting the rock.

We had a very nice day trip from Seville to Gibraltar. The bus/van was high quality and our driver was very careful and safe. Our guide Carlos was friendly and engaging with all sorts of information and stories. We got started right on time and returned on schedule.

The experience was great, the guide Román was very attentive throughout the trip to any questions we had, Maybe we were in a bit of a rush in Gibraltar, but even so we had about 1 hour to eat and tour Main St.

Our trip guide and coordinator was excellent, so were the local guides that took us up the rock. Gibraltar is a great day trip from Seville.

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