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!

Great trip, handled very well by the company. On time and well organized. No negatives at all. The little town of Gibraltar is not quite as picturesque as I'd hoped, and there really isn't time for a leisurely lunch and stroll, but the guides were great.

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.

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

It was an amazing trip , I would highly recommend it.
