 At the summit, gaze out over the Spanish coast and towards Morocco across the Strait of Gibraltar. Meet the rock's famous residents the semi-wild Barbary macaque monkeys known locally as Barbary apes. Take snaps of these cheeky animals. THIS TOUR IS NOT SOLD IN HIGH DEMAND CRUISE LINER DAYS


The Standard Tour consists of four stops which takes approximately one and a half hours. One of the attractions
of this tour is The Pillars of Hercules. There at the Pillars you will enjoy the views of North Africa. You will see where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea, being the only entrance to the Mediterranean. You will be above Europe Point, the end point of Europe. The next stop is St Michaels Cave. This is an amazing, natural, phenomenon which sees thousands of visitors a year wandering through its huge caverns with a few steps and easy access. Next we will go to the top of the Rock where you will see breathtaking views of Gibraltar. Here we will have an interaction with our famous apes. From there we will drive to the north side of the Rock to visit the Great Siege Tunnels, something not to be missed. This site explains a lot of the history of Gibraltar under siege. On the drive down we will see the outside of Moorish Castle and the old town of Gibraltar.
