A good full day tour - the only downside is the early start (6.30 am) from Malaga and you go through many other places to pick up passengers before heading on the road to Gibraltar. I don't think there is any way around this as it would be impractical and too expensive to run smaller buses from each town - thus having less pickups. However, the trip is worth it - there is some stunning scenery along the route and the view of three continents as you enter Gibraltar is beautiful - even better on a clear day when you can see Africa very clearly.

The guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions he escorted us to the center of town and then met us to guide us back to the bus in Nerja. When we arrived in frigiliana he had arrange a road train at a small extra cost which was optional.

Great organization, really nice tour guide (Ana) and the driver. ;) Big Joe from tour to the Rock was also AMAZING (and extremely funny!). Love it!

Le transfert a été rapide et efficace ,la chauffeuse était très sympathique

War alles TOP! Gut organisiert, ich habe super viel Spaß gehabt.
