Paul picked us up at the pier as planned and gave each couple a very nice information package. He was aware of our walking limitations and gave us a great tour including a spectacular stop at the highest point on the rock which we had all to ourselves! As opposed to the tour buses, Paul took us right to the attraction entrances saving lots of steep steps. The outstanding part of the tour was Paul's insights on Gibraltar's past, present and future. Showing us where he played as a kid was special.
