We had two guides, one in Cadiz (he took us on a city tour of Cadiz before we went to Gibraltar) and one in Gibraltar. The "handover from us" at the border to Gebaltar worked perfectly. Mustafa, our guide in Gibraltar was sensational. He spoke English, but in a way that even those of us who didn't speak English very well understood everything. And then he gave us the opportunity to get in touch with the monkeys on the Affenberg - that was really awesome.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour / our guide Carlos Plata was absolutely amazing and being a Gibraltarian local, provided lots of information about the British Overseas Territory with humour thrown in. Thoroughly recommend the tour if your time is limited. Loved St Michael’s Cave and Europa Point. Thanks again. Sonny and Pete Sydney, AUSTRALIA.

Good way to get a quick view of Gib. Our guide Joe was really knowledgeable. Make sure you keep the nature pass as it gets you access to all the other attractions.
