Well orginized, the departure from malaga was exactly as planned, although when living gibraltar there were some fellows who lost the sense of time....Ana , the guide was very helpful, explained in details the history of gibraltar before arriving there and also gave us a short story of marbella on the road, and I need to mention our local guide-bus driver at gibraltar who gave us a short pick about living there and with his jokes the time passed really quickly.The time was exactly what we needed to see the apes den, europa point and st michael caves. The town itself is small , only one principal street with turist shops, liquors, jewellery and clothing.

Guiden fortalde om plassane vi køyrde forbi. Alle passasjerane ut av bussen ved grensa. Viste pass ved passkontroll- dei såg knapt på det. Eigen tid til shopping- Anbefaler Main Street. Og tid til lunsj før det var guiden tur i små bussar . Såg over til Marokko, såg stilege aper og inn i den fantastiske grotta, St.Mickels cave og fortelling om historia til Gibraltar

Very friendly stuff. The trip to Gibraltar went smoothly and we were very happy. Highly recommended!

Really good fun and well organised. Adults and children really enjoyed it and want to do it again.

Enjoyed the refreshing cool water under the summer sun!
